“Star Trek: Discovery” has just added Anson Mount to its cast for Season 2.

The “Hell on Wheels” star will play as Captain Christopher Pike, a character first introduced in the original “Star Trek” series as the leader of the U.S.S. Enterprise prior to Captain James T. Kirk.

He joins a cast that includes Sonequa Martin-Green, Michelle Yeoh, Jason Isaacs, Anthony Rapp, Shazad Latif, Doug Jones and Mary Wiseman.
