Arrow, Teen Wolf, Bryan Fuller’s Syfy Show Get New Cast Members
The Boob Tube
Doug Jones! Jean Loring! Moon colonies! It’s a cast-a-pa-looza!
First let’s head to Arrow, in which a character recognizable to DC fans will be making her way to Starling City: Jean Loring, who eventually goes all supervillainous but for now is just the lawyer defending Moira Queen (Susanna Thompson). She’ll be played by Teryl Rothery, whose long list of TV credits includes Stargate SG-1 (Dr. Janet Fraiser), Caprica (Evelyn), and Dead Like Me (Linda the Realtor). She’s the third new female character we’ll be seeing in season two: The others are Black Canary and Isabel Rochev, the latter of whom will be played by Summer Glau.
As for Teen Wolf, it’s not confirmed, but TV Line is saying that when the show comes back from its mid-season hiatus in January Doug Jones will have joined its cast. Yes, I said Doug Jones. He of Hellboy, Pan’s Labyrinth, and too many other nerdy things to mention. If the rumors are true he’ll be playing a “known killer” named Barrow in episode 15, titled “Galvanize.” (For context, next week’s midseason finale is episode 12.) He’d be joining previously announced Beacon Hills newbie Arden Cho, who will be playing a kitsune, or a fox creature from Japanese mythology who can assume human form and has magical powers.
Last but not least, the leads have been cast for High Noon, an upcoming Syfy show being executive produced and written by Bryan Fuller (Hannibal, Pushing Daisies, Dead Like Me). Quoth Deadline, the show “explores what happens when the countries of Earth establish colonies to mine the moon’s resources and discover a new form of life.” A Bryan Fuller sci-fi show set on the moon? Yes, please.
The first two cast members are Jake Sandvig (Easy A) and Chris Diamantopoulos (Episodes). They’ll play, respectively, Marty Thurgood, “an American astronaut investigated for engaging in possible espionage and sabotage when a giant blast goes off near an area where he was working,” and Marty’s older brother, who just so happens to be in charge of investigating the explosion.
I’m sorry, my brain’s still caught on “Doug Jones might be on Teen Wolf.” Make it so!
