Eureka is returning on July 11th on Syfy, and if you follow the right people on Twitter, you know that Felicia Day and Wil Wheaton are reprising their previous guest roles over multiple-episode arcs – since they tweeted incessantly about it 🙂 (just kidding guys…love your tweets!). Each will appear in a 7-episode arc.
Felicia Day (Web series The Guild, Red) plays Dr. Holly Marten, a quirky Department of Defense visitor to Eureka tasked with evaluating eager candidates for a special mission that has been given to Global Dynamics and will pit the town’s scientists against one another. Day’s story arc will begin July 18th.
Wil Wheaton (Star Trek: The Next Generation) returns as the contentious Dr. Parrish, who is in competition with Fargo to be selected to the mission. The two also vie for the affections of Dr. Marten, who unwittingly finds herself at the center of a love triangle.
But also making a cameo appearance will be none other than comic book legend Stan Lee, the create of Spider-Man, who will appear on the July 25th episode. Mr. Lee portrays Dr. Lee, an expert on the effects of gamma radiation (Hmmm…The Hulk is another one of his creations…suddenly I can picture Fargo in green makeup…), making him a candidate for the mission.
In the meantime, check out some hi-res stills from the upcoming episodes below.
