ACADEMY AWARD WINNER AL PACINO, LOGAN LERMAN, AND JERRIKA HINTON LEAD THE CAST OF JORDAN PEELE'S UPCOMING AMAZON PRIME VIDEO SERIES "THE HUNT"

Lena Olin, Carol Kane, Saul Rubinek, Tiffany Boone, Louis Ozawa Changchien, Greg Austin and Dylan Baker Round Out the Cast of the Nazi-Hunting Drama

PASADENA, Calif. - February 13, 2019 - Amazon Prime Video announced today that legendary Academy Award(R)-winning actor Al Pacino, Logan Lerman, and Jerrika Hinton will lead the cast of The Hunt, the Nazi-hunting vengeance drama from Executive Producer Jordan Peele. The Hunt will also star Lena Olin, Carol Kane, Saul Rubinek, Tiffany Boone, Louis Ozawa Changchien, Greg Austin, and Dylan Baker.

The Hunt follows a diverse band of Nazi Hunters living in 1977 New York City. The Hunters, as they're known, have discovered that hundreds of high-ranking Nazi officials are living among us and conspiring to create a Fourth Reich in the US. The eclectic team of Hunters will set out on a bloody quest to bring the Nazis to justice and thwart their new genocidal plans.

Produced by Peele's Monkeypaw Productions and Sonar Entertainment, The Hunt is based on an original idea, drawing from real-life events. David Weil ("Moonfall") serves as writer, Executive Producer, and co-showrunner. Nikki Toscano ("24: Legacy") is co-showrunner and Executive Producer. Alfonso Gomez-Rejon ("American Horror Story") will direct the pilot and is Executive Producer.

The series is executive produced by Win Rosenfeld ("Dark Net") from Monkeypaw Productions; Nelson McCormick ("Prison Break"); Tom Lesinski ("Mr. Mercedes") and Jenna Santoianni ("Mr. Mercedes") from Sonar Entertainment. A global exclusive, The Hunt will premiere in over 200 countries and territories on Prime Video.

Below are character descriptions for the star-studded cast of The Hunt:

Al Pacino plays "Meyer Offerman," a powerful and mysterious man who is the leader of a vigilante group known as The Hunters. He befriends Jonah after his grandmother's murder and becomes his guide through the world of The Hunt.

Logan Lerman plays "Jonah Heidelbaum," a young man trying to find his place in the world when his Grandmother is brutally murdered in front of him. His desire for revenge leads him to join The Hunt.

Jerrika Hinton plays "Millie Malone," a brilliant FBI agent (who also happens to be one of the first black, female agents in the bureau). As she investigates a series of suspicious murders, she is drawn closer to the truth about The Hunters.

Saul Rubinek plays "Murray Markowitz" and Carol Kane plays "Mindy Markowitz" - doting grandparents who are members of The Hunt... and weapons experts.

Tiffany Boone plays "Roxy Jones," a beautiful, street smart member of The Hunters.

Louis Ozawa Changchien plays "Joe Torrance," a Vietnam Vet who was raised in an internment camp and is now a member of The Hunters.

Lena Olin plays "The Colonel," a shadowy figure who is the mastermind behind our villains.

Greg Austin plays "Travis Leich", a fanatical young man whose adherence to the Nazi cause leads him to do whatever dirty job is necessary, no matter how murderous.

Dylan Baker plays "Biff Simpson," a cold and conniving politician.
