Ava DuVernay's superhero DC drama Naomi has rounded out its cast with Barry Watson, Mouzam Makkar, Mary-Charles Jones, Aidan Gemme, Daniel Puig and Will Meyers. The cast join the previously announced cast of Kaci Walfall as Naomi, Alexander Wraith, Cranston Johnson and newcomer Camila Moreno.

DuVernay’s Array Filmworks and Warner Bros. Television have picked up Amanda Marsalis to direct and co-executive produce the pilot.

Based on the eponymous comic book series that debuted in 2019, co-written by Brian Michael Bendis and David F. Walker and illustrated by breakout artist Jamal Campbell, the show follows a teen girl’s journey from her small northwestern town to the heights of the multiverse. When a supernatural event shakes her hometown to the core, Naomi sets out to uncover its origins, and what she discovers will challenge everything we believe about our heroes.

Watson portrays Greg, Naomi’s (Walfall) adoptive father, a veteran military officer who is serious about his responsibilities at the town’s military base. He is happily married to Jennifer (Makkar) and sees Naomi as the perfect daughter.

Makkar’s Jennifer is Naomi’s adoptive mother, who dotes on her bright and gifted daughter. She is happily married to Greg and teaches linguistics at the town military base.

Jones is Annabelle, Naomi’s fiercely loyal classmate and best friend who is unafraid of telling Naomi hard truths. Though she thinks Naomi is overly obsessive about a recent mysterious event, she supports her in her quest for answers.

Gemme plays Jacob. Sweet, shy, and a bit nerdy, Jacob has been dating Annabelle since the fifth grade, and he treats her like a queen.

Puig is Nathan, a high school jock who briefly dated Naomi before she ended the relationship. Though the two remain friends, they still share an undeniable chemistry, and Naomi’s interest in another teen sparks Nathan’s jealousy.

Meyers plays Anthony. This handsome teen is a proud “townie” who has a crush on Naomi and will do anything to help her on her journey.

Wow, the CW is really deep-diving into the old alumni pool. This show definitely goes on my check-out list. Just . . . 

Is it just me, or is it weird for anybody else that we can remember Barry playing the fresh faced young kid looking to the wisened sage father for advice; and now he's playing the wisened sage father.

Lord, I'm old.
