Meet the New Mayor of Defiance

Thursday, August 1, 2013 - 04:34

Jim Murray, a British actor who's a veteran of a number of shows, including CBS' Chaos and mega soap Coronation Street, is joining Defiance in Season 2 as Niles Pottinger, the new mayor of Defiance.

Mayor?! But what about Datak? Seems that Pottinger has been appointed by the Earth Republic and, true of any lackey of the E-Rep, he's shrewd, calculating and charming. And he's got his eyes laser-focused on Amanda (Julie Benz).

So wait, this raises way more questions than it answers. What's this guy's true agenda? What's his interest in Amanda (other than the obvious, unless it is the obvious)? And where the heck is Datak, who we all thought was the Mayor?
