Michael Ausiello, now running the TVLine website, has posted news that All My Children’s Alexa Havins and Dollhouse’s Dichen Lachman have joined the cast of the upcoming new season of Torchwood on Starz.
Havins’ character is a CIA Watch Analyst named Esther Katusi. She has a lot of fath in human nature and a crush on her colleague Rex (Mekhi Phifer).
Lachman will be guest starring on the first episode as a CIA agent.
Phifer will be playing a character named Rex Matheson who is said to have a “lethal sense of humor.” Arlene Tur (Crash) will also be a part of the cast, and Bill Pullman has joined as a character that Ausiello describes as “a dangerously clever convicted murderer who escapes his lifelong prison sentence on a technicality and quickly becomes a media sensation.” The description of Pullman’s character continues to say that he is “enuinely repentant yet boiling with lust and rage” when he gets caught up in a terrifying worldwide crisis. That character’s name is Oswald Jones (no relation to Ianto or Martha).
For Torchwood: Children of Earth, John Barrowman returns as Captain Jack Harkness and Eve Myles is back as Gwen.
