Percy Jackson and the Olympians by Rick Riordan is a beloved book series that will very soon be getting the Disney+ live-action adaptation treatment. And, as many fans of the books will know, the various Greek gods tend to make appearances—which means the show needs a lot of skilled actors to fill up the pantheon. Gods like Hephaestus. Hephaestus, for those who don’t know, is the god of the forge and fire and inventor of basically robots. And, for this series, he’ll be played by the amazing Timothy Omundson, who’s probably best known for his hilarious performance of Carlton Lassiter in Psych. It’s going to be incredible. And we won’t have to wait long for the show either, with it arriving on December 20th, 2023.
