2013-02-24_0126Aussie Bob Morley, recently appearing in Neighbours, has landed a lead role in US pilot The Hundred for The CW network.

Based on the book by Kass Morgan, the series is set 97 years after a nuclear war has destroyed civilization, and a spaceship housing the lone human survivors sends 100 juvenile delinquents back to Earth to investigate the possibility of re-colonizing the planet.

Morley, who also starred in Home and Away, is set to play Bellamy, one of the delinquents who is five years older than the next-oldest on the space station. He is described as manipulative, strong and crafty.

Eli Goree (Emily Owens) is also one of the young delinquents on the space station.

Morley’s casting comes one day after The CW cast Home and Away’s Luke Mitchell, in a lead role for Greg Berlanti and Julie Plec’s Tomorrow People pilot.

    Very average actor, but good for him. Dean Geyer didn’t let lack of acting talent win him a role in a US show.

    Hopefully now James Mason can get a decent boyfriend on Neighbours :)

    Hollywood works in a funny way. All these home & away actors moving to theCW will be paid so much more but exposed to a much smaller audience. Most CW shows only rate 0.3 these days. Emily Owens and 90210 hitting 0.0.
