Navid Negahban Legion Season 2


After the exit of Said Taghmaoui (Wonder Woman), who was announced to be playing the villainous Shadow King (Farouk) this past summer during Legion‘s Comic-Con panel, the FX hit superhero drama has recast Navid Negahban in the role.

Best known for playing Islamic terrorist Abu Nazir in the first two seasons of Showtime’s Homeland, Negahban’s recent TV credits include Mistresses and The Messengers. He also guest-starred in an episode of HBO’s Curb Your Enthusiasm this past November.

Legion season 2 is slated to premiere in April this year.
