A "Lord of the Rings" actor and an "NCIS" actress are among the guest stars slated for the second season of Syfy’s "Alphas," according to The Hollywood Reporter.
Sean Astin of "Lord of the Rings" and Lauren Holly of "NCIS" are part of an impressive list of actors lined up to appear on the show. Other guest stars who are on tap include Steve Byers of "Immortals," C. Thomas Howell of "Southland," Kandyse McClure of "Battlestar Galactica" and Noah Reid of "Rookie Blue," the story notes.
Astin will play an Alpha with an "absorptive brain," which means he can assume the memories of anyone close to him, the piece notes. Holly will play Sen. Charlotte Burton, who has ties to a member of the Alphas team.
