Filming is well underway on Ridley Scott’s quasi-Alien prequel Prometheus but great actors keep joining the cast.  We knew the cast already included Michael Fassbender, Charlize Theron, Noomi Rapace, Idris Elba, and Guy Pearce and now it looks like Patrick Wilson (Watchmen) is also in the mysterious sci-fi flick.  In an interview with Wilson for his upcoming TV show A Gifted Man, the TampaBay.com [via CBM] mentioned the following:

Wilson will need to leverage everything he’s learned from Shorecrest [Wilson’s hometown] to a new role in the highly anticipated Alien prequel Prometheus (directed by original Alien auteur Ridley Scott) for his latest challenge.

We don’t know anything about his role but we don’t really know much of anything about the project other than it has the “DNA” of the Alien franchise.  Prometheus opens in 3D on June 8, 2012.  Wilson will next be seen in theaters in Jason Reitman’s Young Adult.  If you need your Wilson fix faster than that, A Gifted Man premieres on CBS on September 23rd.
