Based on a new report, the identity of the actor set to portray Jet in Netflix’s live-action Avatar: The Last Airbender series has been revealed. According to Knight Edge Media, Sebastian Amoruso will play the fan-favorite anti-hero.
Jet was introduced during Book One of the animated series as the leader of the Freedom Fighters. When Aang and the gang ran into him and his comrades, it seemed like Jet was simply stealing supplies from the Fire Nation. However, after it was revealed he planned to drown an entire Earth Kingdom town to take out an enemy encampment, the two groups were at odds, with Aang stopping Jet and leaving him behind.
Amoruso is relatively new to the acting scene, having made his television debut in 2020’s Solve. Most recently, he appeared in the television adaptation of I Know What You Did Last Summer.
Albert Kim serves as showrunner and will executive produce as well as write for the series. Dan Lin and Lindsey Liberatore will also executive produce, along with Michael Goi. Goi, Roseanne Liang, Jabbar Raisani, and Jet Wilkinson are set to serve as directors on the show. Original creators DiMartino and Konietzko were once a part of production but have since parted ways with the project over creative differences.
The series features Dallas Liu, Gordon Cormier, Kiawentiio, and Ian Ousley, who will play Zuko, Aang, Katara, and Sokka, respectively. In addition, Daniel Dae Kim has been tapped to play Fire Lord Ozai alongside Paul Sun-Hyung Lee as Uncle Iroh.
