"Walker Scobell is an incredibly talented young man who blew us away with his audition tapes for the role of Percy,"

he went on to say:

"It was obvious that Walker had the perfect mix of comic timing, sweetness, rebelliousness, snark, and heroism to embody our hero Percy Jackson."

The series will be based on Rick Riordan's best-selling novel "Percy Jackson & the Olympians: The Lightning Thief."

Scobell's most recent project was Netflix's blockbuster time travel film "The Adam Project." The young actor co-starred with Ryan Reynolds.
