TVLine Items: Jai Courtney Joins Pratt's List, Locklear's Small Stuff and More


DC’s Captain Boomerang will clash with Marvel’s Star-Lord when Jai Courtney appears in Amazon Prime’s The Terminal List opposite Chris Pratt.

Based on the bestselling novel by Jack Carr, the thriller series stars Pratt as James Reece, a Navy SEAL whose platoon is ambushed during a high-stakes covert mission. He then returns home questioning what really happened and who was responsible.

Courtney will fill the recurring guest star role of Steve Horn, a billionaire whose “bread and butter is capitalizing on the latest military trends and innovations” — and that will land him in Reece’s crosshairs, Variety reports.

The cast also includes Taylor Kitsch (Friday Night Lights), Jeanne Tripplehorn (Big Love), Constance Wu (actor), Riley Keough (The Girlfriend Experience) and Patrick Schwarzenegger (The Staircase).
