Buffy's James Marsters joins Caprica

james marsters, capricaThe folks at Caprica central are making a lot of geeks happy this week. First, we heard that comedian and professional nerd Patton Oswalt was joining the Battlestar Galactica prequel series as a Caprican talk show host. Now comes news that Buffy the Vampire Slayer vet James Marsters is joining the show for a sizeable arc.

Marsters will do what he does best on Caprica: play a dangerous and unpredictable baddie driven by his carnal and moralistic desires. EW tells us that Marsters will play a terrorist leader named Barnabus Greele in at least three episodes of the upcoming Syfy series.

This role sound like a perfect fit for Marsters, who made a name for himself in genre TV as Spike the vampire on Buffy. The actor seems content sticking with genre projects. He had a sizeable arc as Brainiac on Smallville a few seasons ago, and he shook things up for Captain Jack on a few eps of Torchwood last year.

Caprica premieres January 22, 2010 on Syfy. (Hey, Buffy fans who have yet to dive into the BSG universe, will this get you to watch Caprica?)
