The Brit, who played evil Lucious Malfoy in the Potter movies, has been cast as Captain Lorca in CBS' upcoming series Star Trek: Discovery.

He'll lead a cast that includes Martin-Green, Michelle Yeoh, Anthony Rapp, Doug Jones, and James Frain.

Isaacs announced the news in a tweet that featured a picture of the captain's chair on the Starship Discovery and the quirky caption "looks comfy". Both the photo and the caption have since been deleted.

Star Trek: Discovery will premiere in America later this year (17).
