According to sources, Marc Singer will be joining the cast of ABC’s alien invasion series, V. Singer is no stranger to that world, as the actor played the lead role of Mike Donovan on the original V, which aired in the ’80s. The actor, who is perhaps best known from his lead role in The Beastmaster, will be playing Lars Tremont, one of the members of a secret organization consisting of top military and government leaders from all over the world
This goes along with the news that Jane Badler, who also starred as Diana in the original series opposite of Singer, will be joining the cast of the ABC’s reboot. Badler will take on the role of the evil mother of Anna, played by fanboy favorite Morena Baccarin of Firefly and Serenity fame, and she’ll make her debut on the January 4, 2011 premiere of season 2.
For those excited about the news of Singer’s return to the world of V, the news is a little less exciting. His debut will not come until the tenth episode of the second season, which after ABC chopped it down from thirteen episodes to ten, means you’ll have to wait until the season finale. And at the rate shows are canceled these days, you can only hope that a third season finds it way through and they can continue with whatever storyline they have set up for the actor.
V also stars Elizabeth Mitchell, Morris Chestnut, Scott Wolf, Lourdes Benedicto, Joel Gretsch, Logan Huffman, and Charles Mesure.
