From AEW wrestler Adam Copeland to Hamilton composer Lin-Manuel Miranda, Percy Jackson and the Olympians is bursting at the scenes with major guest stars — many of whom play the Greek gods. So who do the lead actors of the series hope will take on the roles of Olympians and Titans in future seasons?
Walker Scobell, who plays Percy Jackson, and Aryan Simhadri, who plays Grover Underwood, revealed at the TCA (Television Critics Association) winter press tour that they had a very specific vision for who should play the Titan Atlas, who appears in the third book in Rick Riordan’s series, The Titan’s Curse.
How is ‘Percy Jackson and the Olympians’ different from the books?
“Me and Walker, we’re huge fans of God of War. So in book three, for Atlas, the Titan who holds up the sky, we really want Christopher Judge to play him,” Simhadri said. Judge has been playing the role of Kratos in 2018, so he’s no stranger to media based on Greek mythology.
Simhadri added that seeing Judge at the Game Awards only reiterated his desire to see Judge in Percy Jackson and the Olympians. “He’s the perfect Atlas. He has that Titan energy,” he said.
Scobell had another fan cast of his own to add as well, this time for an Olympian we haven’t met yet: “I was watching The Hunger Games recently, and I thought Sam Claflin would be a cool Apollo.”
Since Season 2 was only just greenlit, it might be a while before we get any official casting news. But who knows, maybe come Seasons 2 or 3, we could see some of these fan casts become a reality.
Percy Jackson and the Olympians is now streaming on Disney+.
