Anthony Boyle is set to co-star opposite Austin Butler and Calum Turner in Apple Studios’ “Masters of the Air” from Playtone and Amblin Television, reports Deadline. He’ll play the lead role of Major Crosby.

Deadline notes that Apple and Boyle already have strong ties after the studio tapped him to co-star in the film “Tetris” opposite Taron Edgerton. He was most recently seen in HBO’s limited series Plot Against America as Zoe Kazan’s brother-in-law. He also co-starred opposite Nicholas Hoult in the biopic Tolkien.

“Masters of the Air” is the follow-up to HBO’s miniseries “Band of Brothers” and “The Pacific.” The Apple TV+ World War II epic limited series comes from Steven Spielberg’s Amblin Television and Tom Hanks & Gary Goetzman’s Playtone. The limited series is based on the book by Donald L. Miller and follows the story of the American bomber boys in World War II who brought the war to Hitler’s doorstep.
