Dan Stevens Joins Hulu's Upcoming Chippendale Limited Series

Dan Stevens ("Legion", "Eurovision Song Contest: The Story Of Fire Saga") has signed on to star in Hulu's new limited series that follows the true story of Somen "Steve" Banerjee, the Indian-American entrepreneur who started Chippendales.

The series' working title is "Immigrant", and it hails from Pam & Tommy" creator Robert Siegel. Kumail Nanjiani will star as Banerjee, and also executive produce. The series will detail the insane, darkly comedic, crime-ridden story behind the unique male revue that became a cultural phenomenon.

Stevens will play Paul Snider, a hustler and serial schmoozer who stumbles upon the opportunity of a lifetime in the form of Steve Banerjee and his struggling LA backgammon club. Through their unlikely partnership, the iconic male stripping institution Chippendales is born.

Also joining the cast is "tick, tick…BOOM!" star Robin De Jesús, who will appear in the recurring role of Ray Colon. Described as a proud Nuyorican from the Bronx, Colon comes on the Chippendales scene as the resident handyman and self-proclaimed jack of all trades. Affable and eager-to-please, Ray reveres Banerjee and their growing friendship finds Ray in more than one compromising situation as the season progresses.

The cast also includes Murray Bartlett, Annaleigh Ashford as well as recurring/guest stars Quentin Plair, Andrew Rannells, and Nicola Peltz. Siegel and Jenni Konner will serve as showrunners and Matt Shakman will direct. Rajiv Joseph and Mehar Sethi will write the script.

Stevens can next be seen in Starz's political thriller series "Gaslit" alongside Sean Penn and Julia Roberts.
