Hugh Laurie and Mark Ruffalo Join Netflix’s “All the Light We Cannot See” 

From the pages to the small screen, the Pulitzer Prize-winning novel “All the Light We Cannot See” will come to life with a killer cast. According to Variety, Mark Ruffalo and Hugh Laurie have joined the Netflix limited series opposite newcomer Aria Mia Loberti. As previously announced, Loberti will play Marie-Laure, a blind teenager “whose path collides with Werner, a German soldier, as they both try to survive the devastation of World War II in occupied France.” Ruffalo will play Daniel LeBlanc, Marie-Laure’s father, and Laurie will play Etienne LeBlanc, “an eccentric and reclusive World War I hero suffering from PTSD.” Steven Knight (“Peaky Blinders”) will adapt Anthony Doerr’s novel for the screen with “Stranger Things” director Shawn Levy helming. Lucy Bevan is the series casting director.
