Colin Cunningham Slinks Into Blood Drive

The Falling Skies alum will be playing the mastermind behind the underground death race.

By Bryan Enk

There's evil afoot as Blood Drive has claimed its big bad.

Colin Cunningham has joined the upcoming action series in the role of Slink, "the nastiest creature you'll ever dread to meet, created from an ether of pure corruption and sin. Ever the showman, Slink soaks up the spotlight as the mastermind of Blood Drive, an underground death race in which the cars run on human blood."

Okay ... best character ever?

Colin joins Alan Ritchson as Arthur Bailey, a former cop turned private security operative forced to participate in the deadly competition, and Christina Ochoa as Grace, a femme fatale volunteer in the Blood Drive who's unexpectedly partnered with Bailey.

Colin Cunningham is perhaps best known for his portrayal of John Pope on Falling Skies (2011-2015). His other television credits include Beggars and Choosers (1999-2001), Stargate SG-1 (1999-2005), The Collector (2004-06) and Klondike (2014). He also recently guest-starred on Syfy's The Magicians as Bjorn.

Production on the 13-episode Blood Drive commences this month.
