The hit Syfy series Warehouse 13 is about to get a healthy dose of Buffy the Vampire Slayer.

The show has a great habit of signing former sci-fi alums in guest roles, and the trend looks to continue in the upcoming back half of season four. The latest addition? None other than Anthony Stewart Head, aka Buffy’s beloved watcher Giles.

Head has signed on for the final three episodes of season 4.5, which premieres April 29. He’ll be playing the mysterious villain Paracelsus, and that’s about all we know, as the network has not revealed any more details about the character.

If you’ve been missing your weekly dose of the former Watcher, you’re in luck, because he’s also joined the new Hunger Games-esque CW series The Selection and the upcoming young adult flick Percy Jackson: Sea of Monsters. So we should have more than enough sage Giles wisdom this year.

Do you think Head will be a good addition to the Warehouse 13 universe?
