Orphan Black Picks Up New Cast Members Including Ultimate Creeper James Frain & Lost Girl’s Ksenia Solo!

KseniaSoloOrphan Black casting is happening. That means more Orphan Black soon. That means CLONE DANCE PARTIES!

TVbythenumberes reports James Frain, Ksenia Solo, Justin Chatwin (that guy who looks hella like Aaron Paul), Kyra Harper, and Earl Pastko will be joining the cast of the BBC America original series Orphan Black for Season 3.

The press release from BBC America, Space, and Temple Street Production explains who they’ll play:

Justin Chatwin joins in a recurring role as Jason Kellerman. With rugged good looks and street-smarts, Jason is a savvy drug-dealer in the guise of a charismatic businessman. James Frain guest stars as Ferdinand, a well-educated, “cleaner” who is both charming and intimidating. Ferdinand is a powerful player in a secretive, multi-national political faction that operates with questionable ethics and a ruthless approach.

Well Frain, who recently starred in BBC America’s Intruders, certainly has a type, doesn’t he? Speaking of which…

“Also joining the cast this season is Ksenia Solo (Black Swan) as Shay, a soulful and compassionate holistic healer with a great sense of humor destined to become a new friend to Cosima Niehaus (Tatiana Maslany).”

Knew it! Knew it! Knew it! Though I haven’t watched Syfy’s Lost Girl (I’ve heard great things) I had a feeling Solo would be connected to Cosima.

Kyra Harper (Warehouse 13) will play Dr. Coady, a ruthless doctor and advisor to the military. Coady is outwardly the soul of reason, but her maternal, nurturing manner conceals an agenda that even her superiors do not suspect. And rounding out the additions is Earl Pastko (Murdoch Mysteries) as Bulldog, Ferdinand’s silent, imposing and violent personal bodyguard. Communicating with his boss by looks only, Bulldog carries out the dirty work of his shady employers.

What are your thoughts on the new additions?
