Joel Edgerton (Jason Dessen)


Joel Edgerton acts as Jason. He plays two Jasons—one from one world and another from a different world. The show tells how one Jason ends up in a different reality after the other Jason swaps places with him. Edgerton is great at showing the differences between the two Jasons. The story hard to understand, but his acting makes it easier.

Jennifer Connelly (Daniela)

Jennifer Connelly plays Jason's wife, Daniela. Just like Joel Edgerton, she also plays different versions of her character. She's really good at showing the different sides of Daniela, making each one feel real and unique.

Alice Braga (Amanda)


Alice Braga acts as Amanda, the girlfriend of the other Jason. When the two Jasons switch places, Amanda notices changes in her partner's behavior and gets worried about him. Later she joins one of the Jasons as he explores different worlds.

Jimmi Simpson (Ryan) 

Jimmi Simpson plays Ryan, who is a scientist in one world but struggling in another.

Oakes Fegley (Charlie Dessen)


Oakes Fegley, known for The Goldfinch, plays Charlie, Jason and Daniela's son.

Dayo Okeniyi (Leighton) 

Dayo Okeniyi plays Leighton, Jason's friend.

Marquita Brooks (Dawn)


Marquita Brooks plays Dawn, a tough character in Dark Matter.

"Dark Matter" is about a guy named Jason Dessen, a physicist professor and family man who is abducted into an alternate version of his life one night while walking home on the streets of Chicago. Wonder quickly turns to nightmare when he tries to return to his reality amid the mind-bending landscape of lives he could have lived. In this labyrinth of realities, he embarks on a harrowing journey to get back to his true family and save them from the most terrifying, unbeatable foe imaginable: himself. The show sticks close to the book it's based on, thanks to the author helping out.

Sci-fi and family drama are the blend in this show. Jason, played by Joel Edgerton, loves his family a lot. But things get crazy when he's kidnapped. When he tries to get back home, the story gets intense. Joel Edgerton is really good at acting, even when his character acts differently. Sometimes it's a bit confusing, but eventually the show helps us understand.

Although the show has long episodes, they're worth to watch. It's not just a mystery to solve each week; it's a big story with lots of surprises. If you don't understand at first, it's okay. Eventually, things will become clear.

Alice Braga is also a key player in this, along with Jimmi Simpson. Both of them are excellent additions to the cast, especially in how they affect and influence Jason Dessen. They bring out some humanity, but also, because of story circumstances, they can be wily and a bit treacherous, keeping us guessing at times about their internal motives and their level of trustworthiness. 

The show doesn't use a lot of fancy effects. It pays more attention to the characters and their relationship.There's barely any sex, a tiny bit of nudity, a lot of profanity, and then some very sudden and brutal violence.
