The first season of the live space adventure series Orbital Redux is coming to a close, and it’s going out with a bang in the form of the world’s first live “Zero-G” sci-fi stunt. “Moon Station” will see star Yuri Lowenthal (the voice of Spidey in PS4’s Spider-Man) reunite with his stunt performer on the video game, Seth Austin. Lowenthal’sÂ character, Max Levodolinksy, and Max’s trainee Tommie Al-Qasimi (Yasmine Al-Bustami) must save their ship from destruction, and a live spacewalk is going to happen.Insert dramatic music here. Spacewalking is a tricky maneuver, but luckily Lowenthal knew who to call. He said, “Given the insane challenge of simultaneously pulling off a literal high-wire stunt while performing for a majority of the show in an Iron Man-style space helmet setup, and doing it all live, there really was just one option for success. I called Seth and asked if we could repeat the approach weâ€™d perfected for Spider-Man, where I did the voice work while he simultaneously did all the thrilling acrobatic physical stuff. He was in as soon as I said ‘live spacewalk.'”Orbital Redux‘s season finale airs live today, Thursday, November 15 at 5:45PM PT on Nerdist‘s YouTube, Geek & Sundry‘s Twitch Channel and Alpha.
