Lost in Space (2018)
Don West is a character first created in the 'Lost in Space (1965)' series, then brought to life again in the 1998 Movie 'Lost in Space', the 2003 John Woo failed pilot 'The Robinsons: Lost in Space' and now in the current 'Lost in Space (2018)' series.
From the Casting Brief:
He’s no colonist, he’s a well-paid roughneck, part of a sub-class of highly-skilled but blue collar contractors.
He also smuggles in luxury goods on the side.
A roguish exterior hides a heart of gold.
Once he finished his contract, he’d have been on the next trip back home with enough money to set himself (and those he loves) up for life.
He has a cynical view of the colonization of space.
They say it's an egalitarian brave new world, but people like him would never be allowed to live there.
Now that he's crashed along with "the elites," he's going to have to forge new alliances, and find in the Robinsons the family he never thought he'd have
