Keith David has been cast as a recurring guest star in "Marvel’s New Warriors."
Keith plays Ernest Vigman, a caustic municipal employee who butts up against the hopeful energy of the new warriors.
Keith joins fellow cast members Milana Vayntrub (“This Is Us,” “Silicon Valley”) playing Doreen Green a.k.a Squirrel Girl, Derek Theler (“Baby Daddy”) playing Craig Hollis a.k.a Mister Immortal, Jeremy Tardy (“Dear White People,” “Ten Days in the Valley) playing Dwayne Taylor a.k.a Night Thrasher, Calum Worthy (“Austin & Ally,” “Cassandra French’s Finishing School”) playing Robbie Baldwin a.k.a Speedball, Matthew Moy (“2 Broke Girls, “Steven Universe”) playing Zack Smith a.k.a. Microbe, and Kate Comer (“Hello My Name is Doris,” “The Comeback”) playing Deborah Fields a.k.a. Debrii.
Not quite super, not yet heroes, "Marvel's New Warriors" features six young people learning to cope with their abilities in a world where bad guys can be as terrifying as bad dates.
The show marks Marvel’s first foray into comedy for a live-action television series slated to debut in 2018 on Freeform.
The series is co-produced by Marvel Television and ABC Signature Studios. Kevin Biegel (“Cougar Town,” “Enlisted”) will serve as showrunner and executive producer, with Marvel's Jeph Loeb ("Marvel's The Defenders," "Marvel’s Punisher") and Jim Chory ("Marvel's The Punisher," "Marvel’s Inhumans") as executive producers.
