?Original V stars Marc Singer (The Beastmaster!) and Jane Badler are joining the cast of the new V series. That’s pretty groovy. I was about to call it stunt-casting, but then I realized in no universe is putting Marc Singer in anything considered stunt-casting, so it’s just kind of a warm, nerdy fuzzy. Unfortunately, Geeks of Doom says that while Badler will show up in the season 2 premiere on January 4th, Singer won’t be appearing until the season finale –and god knows if there’ll even be a season 3. Although I do love the idea of the V producers sitting around desperately trying to think of ways to ensure the show stays on the air, and someone leaps up and shouts “GET ME MARC SINGER.”
