Two new MISFITS revealed?

Tuesday, 22 May 2012

Screenterrier claim to have the exclusive on who's joining E4's superhero drama Misfits for its currently filming fourth series. They are: 23-year-old Karla Crome (Hit & Miss) as Jess, the "female version of Larry David"; and Nathan McMullen (Shameless) as the naïve and childlike Finn. The identity of the third new actor, playing "good-looking" but "standoffish" Alex, has yet to be revealed. This news has yet to be confirmed by Channel 4, at time of writing, but sounds credible.

Nathan Stewart-Jarrett and Joe Gilgun will both return as Curtis and Rudy, respectively, but Lauren Socha won't be back as Kelly—joining Robert Sheehan, Iwan Rheon and Antonia Thomas as original cast members who've left the show.

In addition, relative newcomer Nirpal Bhohagl (Sket) has been attached to direct episodes of series 4, due later this year. You can also catch Karla Crome on Sky Atlantic's Hit & Miss this evening (23 May), to perhaps get a flavour of her talent.

Any thoughts on these two actors and what they might bring to the show?
