TNT's television adaptation of Snowpiercer based on the movie of the same name based on the graphic novel Le Transperceneige has found its first actor in Daveed Diggs. He will play a character named Layton Well, described as a "a prisoner barely surviving the harsh conditions in the tail end of the train" barreling through a dystopian tundra. Well will eventually be a part of the resistance, but initially "spends his days sniffing the industrial-waste-turned-drug Chronole and tending to his cage full of rats."

The pilot, which has not been picked up to series yet, is set to be directed by Doctor Strange's Scott Derrickson. Diggs won a Tony for playing the dual role of the Marquis de Lafayette and Thomas Jefferson in Hamilton, executive produces The Mayor, and has a recurring role in this season of Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt.
