Percy Jackson & the Olympians: The Lighting Thief

 

Now I can say that Nathan Fillion is a greek god without the embarrassing silence that usually follows. The star of ABC’s Castle has accepted the role of Greek deity Hermes in Fox 2000’s sequel Percy Jackson & The Olympians: The Sea of Monsters, based on the second book in Rick Riordan‘s best-selling young-adult book series.

In the Percy Jackson series, Hermes is the father of Percy’s arch enemy Luke, who is played in the films by Jake Abel.

Thor Freudenthal is directing The Olympians, with a release date of 2013 in theaters. Logan Lerman is returning in the starring role of demigod Percy, while Alexandra Daddario and Brandon T. Jackson also are returning to reprise their roles. The first title in the franchise, Percy Jackson & The Olympians: The Lightning Thief, grossed $226.5 million at the worldwide box office in 2010. Dylan Neal played the role of Hermes in Lightning Thief.
