The Spiderhead star Sam Delich is joining Disney+ from Netflix.

The Australian-born actor will star in the streamer's upcoming dramedy - Last Days of the Space Age - as the lead villain.

As it tells the unimaginably true story concerning Perth, a major city in Western Australia in 1979, the eight-episode series blends history with fiction.

That year, Perth held the honor of hosting the Miss Universe pageant, but everything was about to go terribly awry

America's space station, Skylab, crashed into the earth just outside the city's suburbs just as it came tumbling back into the atmosphere.

In the midst of all the chaos, Last Days of the Space Age will focus on three families living in the area that are confronted with catastrophic events.

Since Disney+ announced their Australian and New Zealand 2022/23 lineup in Sydney last month, the project has been a hot topic.

Delich will be joining the cast alongside the previously revealed Jesse Spencer, Radha Mitchell , Deborah Mailman, and Linh-Dan Pham.

With so many strange and high pressure events happening in Perth at the same time, the story is sure to be rife with opportunities for villains.
