Forward Unto Dawn pics part 1: The Cast

Hopefully by now you’ve had a chance to see the trailer for the Live Action series “Forward Unto Dawn” starting 5 weeks before the release of Halo 4 with an approximate 15 minutes per episode.

In this first of a three part article of pics we get to meet the cast of FUD. Titles in parenthesis are other acting credits the actors are known for.

Tom Green (Dance Academy)

Anna Popplewell (The Chronicles of Narnia) Eye candy? I think so. She is pretty. Good actress too.

Daniel Cudmore (X2, X-Men: The Last Stand, The Twilight Saga) Okay, while not 7 ft tall, he’s a GREAT pic of MC. He IS 6’4″. He’s played Colossus from X-Men for gawds sake. Awesome casting here! (and he’s one lucky bastard, as he’ll be known as Master Chief for life now…)

Ayelet Zurer (Angels & Demons, Munich)

Mike Dopud (Mission Impossible – Ghost Protocol) I gotta say that he would have been a good pick for an older Master Chief.

Enisha Brewster (Footloose)

Masam Holden (Grey’s Anatomy, Elizabethtown)

Osric Chau (2012) Cripes, a friend of mine is going to gloat over this, being that his nickname is also “JJ.” JJ, if you read this and gloat I’m taking you off my friends list….LOL

Iain Belcher (Supernatural)

Kat De Lieva (no other credits known) Hmm, she turns blonde for this role?

And finally

Chris Shields (no further credit given) A doctor? Hmm, I wonder if he’s a secret part of the Mjolnir project?

Some really good actors in the cast. I’m most looking forward to Daniel Cudmore’s Master Chief. I hope he keeps it as close to the game MC as possible. Looking at some of the behind the scenes trailers, he does. And man, is that armor impressive.

The Forward Unto Dawn is a Halo series, not exclusively about Master Chief, though he does feature in it. Finally we are getting something real beyond just commercials. After you tally up the total time of the 5 episodes, we’re going to darn near have a feature length film!
