He plays Takeshi Kovacs, the last remaining member of an elite squad of soldiers who is killed only to wake up centuries later in the body of a disgraced cop.
The series takes place in a future where the human mind can be digitized and downloaded into a "cortical stack" and placed in new bodies or "sleeves". Kovacs has his unconsciousness imprisoned and, when he's awakened in a new body hundreds of years later, learns a wealthy businessman, Laurens Bancroft, has freed him with the intention that Kovacs would help Bancroft solve a crime.
Sci-fi fans say hello to your next Netflix binge, Altered Carbon, which is ready to wipe away the winter blues when it's released on February 2.

The cast includesJoel Kinnaman, James Purefoy, and Tamara Taylor. Other characters include interstellar warriors, detectives and so on.
Speaking about the series to EW, Kalogridis said: 'It's very different than what else is out in this space.
In addition to cyberpunk, Altered Carbon is also a noir drama, which has been Netflix's prime choice lately with successes like Jessica Jones and Daredevil and Sense8.
'We tried to imagine what a potential globalized future on Earth would look like, with a certain amount of technological change, a certain amount of technological familiarity and a very large degree of human familiarity'.
