Michael Ausiello has the scoop on the new characters that will be seen on series 4 of Torchwood which will start filming early next year.
This is what Ausiello had to share:
[Ausiello Files]Among the casting intel I’ve gathered on the new season (airing on my new favorite cable network, Starz), the show is out to cast a new series regular — Rex Matheson, a wickedly funny (operative word: wicked) CIA agent born to make waves. Almost as key to the new season are recurring characters Esther Katusi, a CIA grunt in her early 20s who learns what she’s really made of only when she’s forced to, and Oswald Jones, a convicted murderer and pedophile who will be as shocked as anyone to learn how easily infamy and fame can be exchanged for one another.
A CIA agent makes sense in this new international iteration of the show. What makes my ears prick a bit is the murderer / pedophile recurring character. I don't know what to make of that. From what Ausiello says, I almost get the feeling the character's meant to become a reluctant hero of some sort.
But any news is good news, it means the show is progressing at a steady pace!
I'd love to hear your thoughts on that one, so chime in!
