Former Wonderland actor Ben Mingay will play a young Alan Bond in Nine’s upcoming miniseries House of Bond.

Nine announced casting this morning at their annual post-Logies recovery for talent, execs and media.

Also starring are Rachael Taylor (Marvel’s Jessica Jones) as Diana Bliss, Adrienne Pickering (Rake) as Eileen Bond and Sam Neill (House of Hancock) as Roland “Tiny” Rowland.

It will also star Gyton Grantley, Samantha Jade, Anne Looby, John Howard, Johnny Ruffo, Roy Billing, Paul Gleeson and Jack Campbell.

Filming will take place in Sydney and Western Australia.

House of Bond is the rags-to-riches tale that will expose Alan “Bondy” Bond’s incredible rise and spectacular fall in the 1970s and 80s as the cheeky, knockabout “Ten Pound Pom” who fought his way from the back alleys of Fremantle to become the richest man in Australia and one of our greatest sporting heroes for winning the America’s Cup. Was Bond a hero? A villain? Or a little bit of both?

House of Bond is being produced by Cordell Jigsaw Zapruder, with executive producers Andy Ryan, Jo Rooney and Michael Cordell; producer Paul Bennett (House of Hancock, The Great Mint Swindle); writer Sarah Smith (Winter, Rescue Special Ops, Dripping in Chocolate); and the assistance of Screen Australia and Screen NSW.
