Well, this is certainly exciting news, especially if you’re a fan of ABC’s new “V” show. Or even if you aren’t, but loved the original, then this may get you to start watching the new rebooted version. Or not.
According to TVGuide, Marc Singer, news cameraman turned freedom fighter in the original “V” mini-series and TV show, will be joining the cast of “V’s” second season. This marks the second original “V” castmember to show up on the new show, joining Jane Balder, who will be once again playing an alien lizard in the show’s second season.
While Badler will be playing the mother of Anna (Morena Baccarin’s character), Singer will also be playing a familiar role in the new series:
Marc, who played freedom fighter Mike Donovan in the ’80s version, will be playing a new character named Lars Tremont. Lars is a member of a super top secret organization comprised of high-ranking military and government leaders from around the globe, who have long suspected that the Visitors — despite what they tell us — are very much not here in peace.
Could Faye Grant be far behind? We hope not.
The second season of “V” returns January 4, 2011. Here are a couple of quickie promos:
