Syfy’s new hit series Alphas will feature an impressive lineup of special guest stars for its debut season. Garret Dillahunt (Terminator: The Sarah Connor Chronicles, Burn Notice), Summer Glau (Terminator: The Sarah Connor Chronicles), Alaina Huffman (Smallville, Stargate Universe), Rebecca Mader (Lost), Brent Spiner (Star Trek: The Next Generation), Lindsay Wagner (Warehouse 13) and Peter Wingfield (Sanctuary) will join previously announced recurring guest star Valerie Cruz.
The curious thing about bringing Wagner to alphas is that she’s reprising her Warehouse 13 role as Dr. Vanessa Chase. I can see Warehouse 13 and Eureka [which has crossed over with W13 a couple of times] as being in the same universe, but Alphas is tonally all wrong for that kind of crossover – unless their Dr. Chase is just an AU version of the one in W13. Should be interesting to see…
A complete of episodes featuring the abovementioned guest stars, follow the jump.
