Karl Makinen (The Walking Dead) has booked a recurring role opposite Rupert Friend, Jack Reynor and Bella Heathcote in Strange Angel, CBS All Access’ upcoming original drama series from Ridley Scott’s Scott Free Productions and CBS TV Studios. Created by Mark Heyman based on George Pendle’s book of the same name, 1930s-set Strange Angel is inspired by the real-life story of Jack Parsons (Reynor) and explores the dramatic intersection between genius and madness, science and science fiction. Makinen will play General Braxton. A straight shooting member of the greatest generation, General Braxton works for the Army Air Corps and becomes increasingly interested in Jack and Richard’s nascent rocketry project, an interest that will change the trajectory of all their lives. Makinen was seen in a major recurring role on The Walking Dead last season and appeared in David Lynch’s Twin Peaks for Showtime. He’s repped by Alan Siegel Entertainment and Clear Talent Group.
