Jay Karnes, Brendan Coyle joining 12 Monkeys
by Doc on Aug.10, 2015, under Television
EW is reporting that actors Jay Karnes (The Shield) and Brendan Coyle (Downton Abbey) will be appearing in the upcoming second season of Syfy’s 12 Monkeys.
Karnes will recur as a savvy FBI agent in the 1940s named Robert Gale, who believes a series of grisly murders may have something to do with a man named James Cole (Aaron Stanford) — an outsider who Gale suspects might not be from this time.
Meanwhile, Coyle will first appear in the season premiere as Dr. Benjamin Kalman, a former Markridge bioengineer racked with guilt over the deadly virus his team gave birth to. Cole and Ramse (Kirk Acevedo) find him in Budapest and recruit him in their efforts to stop the Army of the 12 Monkeys.
