Friday, September 13, 2013 - 20:13

We've already announced Defiance's new mayor, but he's not the only new addition to town in Defiance Season 2.

First up is William Atherton, a character actor you undoubtedly recognize from roles in Ghostbusters, Looking for Mr. Goodbar, The Day of the Locust, The Pelican Brief, Real Genius and Die Hard (how's that for a resume?). He's play Viceroy Mercado, a ruthless and sarcastic Earth Republic official. He's the boss of Defiance's new mayor, Pottinger, but carries a whopper of a secret of his own.

Also joining the cast is Anna Hopkins as Earth Republic soldier Jessica 'Berlin' Rainer. Berlin makes propagands films for The E-Rep, but one doesn't need to twist her arm to make them. As a child of the Pale Wars, Berlin sees the Earth Republic as a valuable force that protects and unites people. Hopkins has numerous television credits, including The Dead Zone, Nikita and the TV movies Human Trafficking and Too Young To Marry. She also appeared in the film Barney's Version opposite Paul Giamatti and Dustin Hoffman.
