Defiance Season 2 Adds Die Hard Menace — Plus: New Love Triangle Ahead

September 6, 2013 Leave a comment

Defiance Season 2 Casting NewsThe Earth Republic of Syfy’s Defiance has further fortified itself for Season 2, with a pair of new castings.

TVLine has learned exclusively that Die Hard franchise alum William Atherton will fill the role of E-Rep official Viceroy Mercado aka Major Pottinger’s commanding officer. Described as ruthless, sarcastic and fond of peppering his sentences with “old Earth” references, Mercado is harboring a dark secret that would shock both his colleagues and the people of Defiance.Defiance_Anna_Hopkins

Also boarding the show’s sophomore run is Anna Hopkins as Jessica “Berlin” Rai, a soldier and documentarian who makes propaganda films that shine a positive light on E-Rep’s occupation of Defiance. Watch for this tough, fearless lass to form the center of a passionate love triangle.

Atherton’s more recent TV credits include guest gigs on Workaholics, Castle and The Glades, while Hopkins appeared in a February episode of Nikita.

When Defiance opens Season 2 in June 2014, E-Rep has assumed control of the titular town with far-reaching consequences — including a new mayor — while Nolan is traversing the badlands to find Irisa, Amanda assumes an unexpected role as she searches for Kenya and the Tarr family desperately tries to keep control of their criminal empire.

Defiance Installs Primeval Vet

Defiance Season 2 Cast James MurrayBritish actor James Murray, whose TV credits include Primeval, Kröd Mändoon and the Flaming Sword of Fire (as Ralph Longshaft) and CBS’ short-lived Chaos, is joining Syfy’s Defiance in the new series regular role of Niles Pottinger,  Deadline reports.

Hailing from the UK (which was devastated during the Pale Wars), Niles is appointed Defiance’s provisional mayor by E-Rep — probably because Datak has either gone on the lam after killing the military conglom’s Colonel Marsh, or because he gets caught.

Niles is described as a man who has transcended his working class roots to appreciate the finer things in life — all while exhibiting a rock star’s charisma. And the next “finer thing” he obsessively sets his sights on is none other than ex-mayor Amanda (played by Julie Benz). Smart man.

Defiance is set to launch its 13-episode sophomore run in June 2014.
