For the 'Alien' Series, Timothy Olyphant, who appeared in 'Justified'

Timothy Olyphant is going to be a long distance from Harlan County, but he is going to be back to his former stomping grounds at FX. 

 The Justified actor has agreed to take on a significant part in the upcoming Alien prequel series that will be directed by Noah Hawley. 

According to Deadline, Olyphant will play the role of Kirsh, a synthetic life form, in the next series.

This role is comparable to that of Ash, played by Ian Holm in Alien, or Bishop, played by Lance Henriksen in Aliens.

Wendy, a meta-human hybrid who possesses the intellect of a kid and the body of an adult, will have him as a guide. 

Wendy is played by Sydney Chandler, who is also known as Pistol.

In addition, Alex Lawther (Andor) will play the role of CJ, Samuel Blenkin (The Witcher: Blood Origin) will play Boy Kavalier, Essie Davis

will play Dame Silvia, Adarsh Gourav (The White Tiger) will be Slightly, and Kit Young (Shadow and Bone) will play Tootles.

The plot details for the series are being kept under wraps by FX, although it will take place seventy years in the future

one hundred years before the events that occurred in Alien and its sequels and prequels.
