The upcoming Apple TV+ World War II series Masters of the Air has found another cast member.
As reported by Variety, Nate Mann, who plays young Donovan on the Showtime series Ray Donovan, is joining the Band of Brothers/The Pacific sequel. The actor will star as Major “Rosie” Rosenthal.
He joins an ensemble cast that includes previously announced cast members Anthony Boyle (“The Plot Against America,” “Harry Potter and the Cursed Child”) as well as Austin Butler (“The Carrie Diaries”), and Callum Turner (“Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them”).
Masters of the Air follows the true story of a group of American bombers who flew in Europe. The series is based on the book of the same name by Donald L. Miller.
“Masters of the Air” is written by “Band of Brothers” alum John Orloff as well as Graham Yost, with both co-executive producing. Spielberg will executive produce via Amblin Television. Hanks will executive produce under his Playtone banner along with Gary Goetzman. Amblin’s Darryl Frank and Justin Falvey and Playtone’s Steven Shareshian serve as co-executive producers. Alex Maggioni will oversee the day-to-day development of the project for Amblin, alongside Spielberg, Frank and Falvey.
The first three episodes of the upcoming series will be directed by Cary Fukunaga, best known for his work on True Detective, Jane Eyre, and Beasts of No Nation. Tom Hanks, who is executive producing the series, also recently starred in Greyhound, another WWII film that came to Apple’s streaming service.
