According to Deadline, Apple’s upcoming anthology series The Crowded Room starring Tom Holland gained two new cast members: Jason Isaacs and Lior Raz.

The seasonal anthology series comes from A Beautiful Mind’s Akiva Goldsman and New Regency and is set to explore inspirational stories focusing on those who have discovered how to battle through their struggle with mental illness successfully. The Crowded Room’s first season’s ten episodes are based partly on Goldsman’s life while also drawing inspiration from Daniel Keye’s biography The Minds of Billy Milligan.

In the Holland-lead series, Raz and Isaacs join Amanda Seyfried, Emmy Rossum, Sasha Lane, Christopher Abbot, and Emma Laird. Holland, who will executive produce alongside Goldsman, will portray Danny Sullivan, the first person acquitted of a crime due to multiple-personality — now known as dissociative identity — disorder. Raz will aid the story as Yitzhak, Danny’s landlord and an important figure in his life, and Isaacs is set to fill the role of Jack Lamb, a friend of Danny’s biological father and Yitzhak’s employer.

You can currently catch Raz in Fauda on Netflix, where he acts as a co-creator, executive producer, and star. Although you might also recognize him from the Netflix action series Hit & Run or his recent appearance in Michael Bay’s 6 Underground.

Isaacs can currently be seen in CBS’ drama series Good Sam; however, he is best known for his role as Lucius Malfoy in the Harry Potter films.
