Marc Singer Returns to V!

By Mother Brain

Coming off the heels of the Jane Badler news, this is the news I’ve been waiting over a year for. Marc Singer, the actor who played the badass TV cameraman-turned-Resistance fighter in the original incarnation of V, has signed on to guest star on the updated version of the series that starts its 2nd season on January 4. From what’s been described about his involvement, Singer will be playing a similar human character who knows of the Visitors’ true evil motives. As I mentioned in an earlier blog, the current show desperately needs tougher male characters since the majority of them are prissy in contrast to the females on the show. While it sucks that he won’t appear until the season finale, bringing Singer back will hopefully inject the testosterone of the original 80’s series and also be a clear sign of other original series actors to return (i.e. Faye Grant, Robert Englund, Michael Ironside, etc). Here’s the original article below from TVGuide.com:

The excitement just keeps on building for ABC’s V. Following the awesome news that Jane Badler will be appearing as Anna’s evil mother Diana comes word that Jane’s original V co-star Marc Singer will also be appearing on the updated version of NBC’s ’80s cult fave. A show source tells me exclusively that Marc, who played freedom fighter Mike Donovan in the ’80s version, will be playing a new character named Lars Tremont. Lars is a member of a super top secret organization comprised of high-ranking military and government leaders from around the globe, who have long suspected that the Visitors — despite what they tell us — are very much not here in peace.

Marc, 62, is also known to sci-fi fans for his role in the 1982 film The Beastmaster and the more recent Beastmaster spin-off series, while soap fans might Remember him from Dallas or The Young & the Restless. Jane Badler will make her debut in the Jan. 4 season premiere, while Marc will pop up in the 10th episode, which is also the second season finale. The two won’t share any scenes in the episode…but there’s always that possibility in season three. (Fingers crossed.) Faye Grant, make sure your cell phone’s charged! You might be next.
