Just What You've Always Wanted

Warehouse 13 Gives You Another Reason to Watch It, Casts Anthony Stewart Head As Its New Villain

To recap, here’s a (partial) list of the sci-fi royalty that has popped up on Warehouse 13 at some point: Brent Spiner, Kate Mulgrew, Mark Sheppard, Lindsay Wagner, Rene Auberjonois, Jeri Ryan, Sean Maher, and Jewel Staite. And now Anthony Head. But he’s not the only actor with geeky credits you’ll be seeing when season 4.5 kicks off April 29th.

Who are the others? Behold: Polly Walker (Caprica, John Carter), Enrico Colantoni (Veronica Mars, Galaxy Quest), Missi Pyle (Galaxy Quest, Charlie and the Chocolate Factory), Joel Grey (Cabaret, Buffy the Vampire Slayer), Nora Zehetner (Heroes), Kelly Hu (X2), and Steve Valentine (Crossing Jordan—maybe that’s not so geeky in the technical sense, but it was created by Tim Kring, so let it go). I challenge anyone to name another show so devoted to pulling in so many geeky actors. Seriously. I will write you a poem if you can manage it. There are times when I love what you choose to be, Syfy.

No word yet on who the non-Anthony Stewart Head actors will play, but Giles/Uther/Repo Man is slated as the villain Paracelsus, who will appear in the final three episodes of the season in a “major recurring role.” The actor’s also recently joined the cast of CW’s The Selection as their resident King, as well as Percy Jackson: Sea of Monsters as the centaur Chiron.

    For as small as it was and also being animated, “Gargoyles” did a heck of a job establishing geek cred with their voice actors.

  • Rebecca Pahle

    You have a point there.
    Quite a geeky show, indeed.
    Here, have a haiku.

  • Erin Treat

    And not just Tony Head and all the others you listed, but also James Marsters (Spike from Buffy)! He’s in the first episode of the second half and obviously from how it ends, he’ll be back too! He’s delightfully smarmy.

    Yeah, it’s really fun to watch the show and keep a scorecard of Star Trek alums and other sci-fi heroes as they appear. We need Lucy Lawless next.

    James Marsters (Buffy, Angel) is also on this season.

  • Carole Bennett

    First “Spike”, now “Giles” – that’s the way to pull in the BtVS fans. Would love to see who else they’ll pop into the mix!

    I am offended,

    by this haiku,

    I deserved better,

    from you.

    There once was writer and geek
    With poetry skills somewhat weak
    She’d say she was sorry
    For her haiku quite shoddy
    But she’s suffering from a bit of pique

    There was a mod who did wrong,
    But responded with a poem quite strong,
    The user base was riven,
    But she was forgiven,
    That limerick was worthy of song.

    Next week? I watched it 3 days ago? *confuzzled* But James Marsters was funny. And clearly set up to be recurring.

    The real life Paracelsus was a fascinating guy. He’s considered the father of toxicology, was an alchemist as one of his many occupations (one of the characters in Fullmetal Alchemist is actually named after him), and is credited with being the first to write about gnomes as a mythical race.

  • Mark Brown

    Turns out “gnome” is alchemical code for Ed Elric. . .

    I watched it days ago too, although all the release dates I’ve seen say the 29th. Confused, but happy I got to see it? Feels like we’ve been waiting forever!
