Marc Singer is returning to “V,” joining fellow original cast member Jane Badler in the ABC series when it returns in January on ABC.
Singer, who played Mike Donovan in the original 1980s run, will play Lars Tremont, a member of a secret organization made up of politicians and military leaders. Not to be confused with the resistance group the Fifth Column, this group essentially will be a backup plan set in motion just in case the Visitors are not as altruistic as they appear to be.
Since ending his days on “V,” Singer has been quite busy with the Beastmaster franchise. He’s also appeared in the 1988 version of “The Twilight Zone,” the 1992 “Batman” animated series and “Highlander.”
Badler, who played the evil alien overlord Diana in the 1980s version of V, was originally signed for a four-episode arc. However, that has now changed and Badler will instead appear in the full season.
Her role will be something of a wink to fans of the original series and she will play the mother of Anna (Morena Baccarin), who leads the Visitors in their mission on Earth.
Since “V,” Badler spent a good amount of time in the primetime soap “Falcon Crest,” before returning back to Australia to concentrate on her career and family.
Badler will be introduced in the season premiere, which is set to air in January, while Singer will make an appearance in the season finale with the possibility of a return in Season 3, if there is a pickup.
V returns Jan. 4 on ABC.
