Although the debut of CBS All Access’ adaptation of Stephen King’s “The Stand” is now less than a month away, that doesn’t mean that a new piece of casting can’t present itself. Entertainment Weekly has revealed that in THE STAND Ezra Miller (FANTASTIC BEASTS: THE CRIMES OF GRINDELWALD) will be playing Trashcan Man in the upcoming miniseries.

For those unfamiliar with the story, such as myself, Trashcan Man is an “unstable pyromaniac who joins a group of survivors in New Vegas led by the demonic Randall Flagg (Alexander Skarsgard).” The casting has been kept under wraps until now, but The Stand showrunner Benjamin Cavell is thrilled to unveiled Ezra Miller’s take on the character. “It’s so different from any way that anyone has seen Erza before, and he’s so committed to it,” Cavell told EW. “He’s a huge fan of the book and had fallen in love with this character and wanted to play it for a long time. On our first call, he described Trash as ‘the embodiment of pyromania.’ The only thing this guy was capable of, and the only area in life he was comfortable, were with the explosives and instruments of fire and destruction.” You can check out a couple of photos of Ezra Miller as Trashcan Man below.

As you might have noticed, Ezra Miller’s Trashcan Man isn’t overly fond of clothing. “He wears basically no clothes except for his extensive tactical gear,” Cavell said. “So he just kind of in underwear and combat boots … the character has to be right on the edge of over-the-top. But no matter how strangely he’s behaving there’s always this Ezra Miller soul as a twinkle coming through. I can’t say enough about how brilliant he is in it.” The actor also had a hand in crafting Trashcan Man’s look, saying that he was “very interested in working directly with the wardrobe department in creating a look based entirely on the practical demands of the characters pyromania. Trash wears nothing but what is necessary to craft incendiaries, ignite them, and get as close to the flames as possible — in order to revel in the fire.

In addition to Ezra Miller, The Stand also stars Whoopi Goldberg, James Marsden, Amber Heard, Greg Kinnear, Alexander Skarsgard, Owen Teague, Odessa Young, Jovan Adepo, Nat Wolff, Heather Graham, Fiona Dourif, Clifton Collins Jr., and more. The Stand will debut on CBS All Access on December 17, 2020.
