Last year’s debut season of Alphas had its fair share of stellar guest stars to show off, and it looks as if it isn’t skimping on that department this year either. News has arrived that geek legend Sean Astin and Firefly star Summer Glau have been lined up for future episodes.
Astin will pay Roland, an Alpha with the ability to absorb memories, while Glau will return as Skylar Adams for three additional episodes. Now, as you can probably tell from our layout, Summer Glau is a hero of ours, and adding to her sci-fi resume is something we wholeheartedly approve of.
NCIS actress Lauren Holly will appear as a senator with a hidden agenda, while Southland’s C Thomas Howell will play a man with super speed. Caprica’s John Pyper-Ferguson will return as Stanton Parrish, and CSI: New York actress Kathleen Munroe will reprise her role as Dr. Rosen’s daughter. [TVLine]
