Life Michiel Huisman scores with new HBO series By weekster Posted on 1 week ago 1 min read Share on Facebook Share on Twitter Share on Google+ Michiel Huisman is still doing very well in America. The actor has a new job and will play the male lead in the HBO thriller drama series The Flight Attendant. His co-star Kaley Cuoco, known for The Big Bang Theory, is responsible for the female lead and is also one of the show’s executive producers. This is reported by Deadline. The Flight Attendant tells the story about how a life can completely change in one night. Stewardess Cassie, Kaley’s character, wakes up in the wrong hotel, in the wrong bed with a dead man beside him. She has no idea what happened. Michiel plays the charming, wealthy businessman Alex, who runs into a lot of bad luck in Bangkok and is therefore left with Cassie for much longer than intended. The series is based on the book of the same name, written by Chris Bohjalian. The recordings start this fall and 8 episodes of one hour each are made.
