’12 Monkeys’ season 2 adds David Marciano, David Dastmalchian

Syfy’s 12 Monkeys has added a pair of actors for the second season of the highly popular time travel/apocalyptic show. Homeland star David Marciano and David Dastmalchian, who appeared in Marvel’s Ant-Man, landed guest roles in season two.

Variety reported that the “pair will debut in episode six of the sci-fi thriller’s second season, in scenes set in 1975. Marciano will play NYPD detective John Damato, who is pulled into the case of a serial killer who has a dangerous affiliation with the Army of the 12 Monkeys, an organization behind the death of 7 billion people in the present day. Damato teams up with heroes Cole (Aaron Stanford) and Ramse (Kirk Acevedo) as they travel back in time to track the killer and find out what he knows.”

“Slade is pursued not only by the 12 Monkeys, but by Cole and Ramse, since he may be the key to putting an end to a conspiracy that spans centuries,” Variety added.

Dastmalchain has a long resume of TV appearance, but made an appearance in Dark Knight as Joker’s thug, Thomas Schiff, the one Dent nearly shoots in the head before Batman intervenes.

Marciano played Virgil in over 20 Homeland episodes, but had a starring role on The Shield, as Captain Billings, as well as Due South, Judging Amy and Civil Wars.

The show is tied to Terry Gilliam’s original theatrical film, which starred Bruce Willis and Brad Pitt, set in a future ravaged by a pandemic. Humanity’s hope lies in a time travel project to go back and foil the outbreak before it happens.

Amanda Schull, Barbara Sukowa, Demore Barnes, Noah Bean and Emily Hampshire also star.

12 Monkeys season 2 is set to return in 2016, filming in Toronto, after being renewed by the network back in March.
