Thomas Jane to star as Miller in TV series

Thomas Jane
The Expanse TV series is finally taking shape in a big way: It was just announced that Thomas Jane will star as Detective Miller in the upcoming show! The actor has received three Golden Globe nominations for his role on HBO series Hung, and is known from films such as Stephen King's The MistDreamcatcherThin Red Line and many more, as well as several indie films.

As this is the first casting to be announced, it allows us to assess how true to their book looks we can expect the cast members to be. The answer so far: Not terribly. Miller is, of course, a Belter; unsurprisingly, Jane is visibly missing the giant head and thin, elongated body. Maybe they'll add it in post-production. Apart from that detail, the Miller of the books is described as having a sad, basset hound face, although I can totally see Jane sporting his signature porkpie hat. The actor is also five years shy of Miller's upcoming 50th birthday – and, might I say, doesn't even look that old! He could've played Holden and I wouldn't wince.

On the other hand, Thomas Jane is a great and funny actor, and I'm sure he can put some weight behind Miller's dry, dreary humor. What do you think? And who do you want for the other roles? Check out our casting thread!

Thomas Jane is awesome. Probably one of the most underrated dudes in Hollywood. As a fan of the book, his physical variances from Miller are unimportant to me. I think that this could easily be a defining roll for him and I'm excited to see him play my favorite character in The Expanse series.

"Any actor can play a role, but a great actor disappears into his character"- esc Thomas Jane has proven for a long time now his talent and versatility as an actor. Perfect as Miller, no other actor could have played this character so well. About time he gets the praise he deserves.

Praying to god they let Miller survive through the TV Show, he was one of the most well written characters in my opinion (albeit I felt the author was somewhat biased in percieving him as being entirely broken with his morality), but Thomas Janes, brilliant actor for the role.

No way Millers lives post eros, his role as the investigator is bigger and better than regular Miller. Hopefully the Investigator isnt scraped off and thrown at the the Illuysion's Sun.
