The cast for "Sense8," the upcoming sci-fi series from Andy and Lana Wachowski, has been revealed. For genre geeks, it's a doozy. Daryl Hannah, Naveen Andrews ("Lost"), Freema Agyeman ("Doctor Who") and Brian J. Smith ("Stargate Universe") are among the 14 new cast members. Brit actors Tuppence Middleton (star of Wachowskis' troubled "Jupiter Ascending") and Aml Ameen ("Harry's Law") are on board, as well as an international cast of fresh faces including Tena Desae, Doona Bae, Max Riemelt, Alfonso Herrera and Erendira Ibarra. "Sense8" revolves around eight people from around the world who find themselves, suddenly, inextricably, telepathically linked. With J. Michael Straczynski co-showrunning, the 10-episode first season has already begun shooting and is expected to wrap in early November. We should expect to see "Sense8" on Netflix next year. In the meantime, read more plot details on the series...
