From Moriarty in Sherlock to Fleabag‘s “Sexy Priest,” Andrew Scott has delivered some of our favourite TV performances of recent years, and now he’s adding Black Mirror to his résumé.
The just-released trailer for “Smithereens,” one of three new Black Mirror episodes premiering next month, shows Scott playing a man who really flips his lid while driving for an Uber-style taxi service. Things don’t look too promising for his passenger, played by Snowfall actor Damson Idris. And at the end of the trailer, we also get a glimpse of a mysterious character played by That ’70s Show‘s Topher Grace.
Pretty intense stuff, right? Netflix’s synopsis for the episode doesn’t give too much away, simply saying: “A cab driver with an agenda becomes the center of attention on a day that rapidly spirals out of control.”
Trailers for the other two Black Mirror episodes premiering on June 5 have also been released. “Rachel, Jack, and Ashley Too” stars Miley Cyrus as a pop singer who seems to be trapped inside a Siri-like virtual assistant modeled on her image—it’s a role that kind of feels like a dark and twisted riff on her old Disney Channel character, Hannah Montana.
Meanwhile, “Striking Vipers” features The Avengers‘ Anthony Mackie as a husband who seems to be hiding a tech-based secret from his wife.
But as ever with Black Mirror, we probably won’t know what each episode is really about until we watch them in full. Bring ’em on!
