Messing with time wreaked havoc at the conclusion of Umbrella Academy Season 3 in the form of alternate versions of our favorite anti-heroes.
Those “Sparrows”, now have a face and a name to fill in the briefly glimpsed dark silhouettes serving as placeholders.
These new young adults with gifted abilities are headlined by #2, who looks a heck of a lot like ghostly Ben. That’s because this #2 is played by the same actor, Justin H. Min, but bears no resemblance to Ben other than by name and his physical form. Finally Ben will get much more screen-time, even if it’s a different Ben.
Here’s a breakdown of each new Sparrow by actor with the official Netflix description.
Sparrow #1 aka Marcus (Justin Cornwell)
“A charming, chiseled, colossus. Honest, virtuous, and demanding, Marcus keeps the family together. Graceful but lethal, calculated but compassionate, he is as smart as he is strong. Marcus is disciplined, rational and in control. He oozes confidence and leadership without ever having to raise his voice.”
Sparrow #2 aka Ben (Justin H. Min)
“This is not the sweet Ben we know and love. This Ben is a Machiavellian tactician, wrapped up in a pretty boy body with a rumbling inner-squid. Vicious, pragmatic, and hyper-vigilant, Ben is determined to gain his status as the leader at all costs.”
Sparrow #3 aka Fei (Britne Oldford)
“She sees the world in a special way. She comes across as a misanthrope who would rather be alone than spend even a second with you. But truth be told, Fei wishes she had a friend. Most of the time, Fei is the smartest person in the room and willing to work things out. But if you cross her there’s no looking back because Fei won’t stop until the job is done.”
Sparrow #4 aka Alphonso (Jake Epstein)
“Years of crime fighting have left his face and body with countless visual reminders of his battles. To compensate, Alphonso is armed with a caustic and biting sense of humor. The only thing he likes better than verbally battering anyone foolish enough to get in his face, is a good pizza and a six-pack of beer.”
Sparrow #5 aka Sloane (Genesis Rodriguez)
“A romantic and a dreamer who feels a higher cosmic calling leaving her eager to see the world and experience a life beyond her upbringing. But obligations to her family keep Sloane tethered to the Academy, as does her fear of crossing the family line. But Sloane has plans… and one day she might just be brave enough to act on them.”
Sparrow #6 aka Jayme (Cazzie David)
“A loner hidden under a hoodie. She doesn’t say much because she doesn’t have to. Jayme has a fear-inducing snarl. Catch a glimpse of it, and you’ll run across the street to avoid what follows. Smart and sharp as a knife, she spends most of her time hanging with Alphonso, her only friend.”
Sparrow #7 aka Christopher
“A telekinetic cube of unknown origin. He can turn the room freezing cold and induce paralyzing fear. He acts as the Sparrows’ consulted oracle who hands out incredible advice and serves as the family mediator. Trustworthy, loyal, and is treated by the Sparrows like any other sibling, Christopher is a force to be reckoned with.”
There’s currently no name attached to the voice the telekinetic cube that’s destined to become a fan favorite. It sounds crazy enough to fit right into the Umbrella Academy fabric of expect the unexpected.
Production on Umbrella Academy Season 3 commences next month.
