Kravitz will play the female version of disgruntled record store owner Rob Gordon (originally Rob Fleming in the book), who obsessively catalogs musical "top-five" lists.

High Fidelity, the TV series for Disney's forthcoming streaming service, has found its lead. But this one's surprising: As per Variety, there's going to be a TV version of High Fidelity, Nick Hornby's instant classic 1995 novel, which was made into a John Cusack movie five years later.

Kravitz is well-known to genre fans for roles in Marvel Comics adaptation X-Men: First Class, where she played stripper-turned-mutant superhero Angel Salvadore, and action-heavy Mad Max: Fury Road, where she played Toast the Knowing.

Last year, the club went 64-98, which was tied with the Tigers for the worst mark in baseball. The San Francisco Chronicle's Henry Schulman was the first to report the news.

The "High Fidelity" series is created for streaming by writers Veronica West and Sarah Kucserka. It's a bit of a full-circle moment for her as her mom, Lisa Bonet, played Cusack's girlfriend in the movie.

She featured alongside Avengers: Infinity War's Scarlett Johansson in raunchy comedy Rough Night and most recently starred in critically-acclaimed HBO series Big Little Lies. Last February, Disney CEO Bob Iger the service will be priced "substantially below" the $10.99 that Netflix charges monthly, "because we'll have substantially less volume".

The Disney direct-to-consumer streaming service is scheduled to launch in late 2019 and will feature a wide array of branded original and library content from The Walt Disney Studios, Disney-ABC Television Group, Pixar Animation, Marvel Entertainment, Marvel Studios and Lucasfilm.
