Disney+ is bringing back National Treasure and now they’re bringing back a familiar face. Justin Bartha, who played Riley Poole in the two films in the National Treasure series, is coming back. The Disney+ series of the same name sees an expansion to the movie franchise centered on a young heroine, Jess (Lisette Alexis). She embarks on the adventure of a lifetime to uncover the truth about her family’s mysterious past and save a lost Pan-American treasure.
Justin Bartha has seen some major success in his career starring in two billion-dollar franchises, National Treasure and The Hangover. He’s mixed movies, television, plays, and more throughout many different credits.
Here’s the description of some of the other characters in the upcoming series:
The series also stars multiple award-winning actress Catherine Zeta-Jones (“Ocean’s Twelve”) as Billie, a badass billionaire, black-market antiquities expert and treasure hunter who lives by her own code; Zuri Reed (“Flatbush Misdemeanors”) as Tasha, Jess’ ride-or-die friend who joins the treasure hunt but is forced to reevaluate her belief system to help her best friend.
Jordan Rodrigues (“Lady Bird”) as Ethan, Jess’ childhood best friend who has loved her since the day they met; Antonio Cipriano (“Jagged Little Pill” on Broadway) as Oren, a loveable but self-obsessed goofball with an encyclopedic knowledge of conspiracy theories that attempts to win back Tasha’s affections; Jake Austin Walker (“Rectify”) as Liam, a swoon-worthy struggling musician, with a permanent chip on his shoulder, who comes from a long line of treasure hunters. Jess recruits her friends to help uncover the truth about her parents and their connection to the treasure. Lyndon Smith (“Parenthood”) stars as FBI Agent Ross, who assists in the quest.
