Comic Book Legend Stan Lee to Guest on 'Eureka'

Comic book legend Stan Lee to guest star on Syfy's 'Eureka'It's not as if Syfy's 'Eureka' is lacking in geek cred, but they'll peg the meter next season when, according to TVGuide.com, Stan Lee will make a cameo appearance. The show, about a town built to house and nurture America's most promising scientific geniuses, was just renewed for a fifth season.

The comic book legend joins an already crowded list of guest stars, including Ming-Na ('Stargate Universe'), Wil Wheaton ('Star Trek: The Next Generation'), Jamie Kennedy ('Ghost Whisperer'), Chris Parnell ('Saturday Night Live'), Felicia Day ('The Guild'), and former show regulars Ed Quinn and Matt Frewer, who also recently guest starred on 'True Blood' and 'Supernatural,' respectively.

Lee is no stranger to cameos. You can catch a glimpse of the legendary comic book writer in various film adaptations of characters he helped create, like Spider-Man, the Hulk, the X-Men, Daredevil, and the upcoming Thor movie.

On TV, he has turned up as himself everywhere from 'Entourage' to 'The Big Bang Theory.' He also had his own reality show, 'Who Wants to Be a Superhero,' which ran for two seasons.

There was no confirmation on who or what Lee will be playing, but he should fit right in with the rest of the creative geniuses in town. An inventor, perhaps?

'Eureka' fans, what would you like to see Stan "The Man" doing on the show?

As an Australian science fiction writer I've been reading Marvel comics for over 50 and have long ben an admirer of Stan's. I just love it when he has these cameo appearances in the Marvel movies.

After all those years I thought it was time to give a little something back to the genre:

Will Wheaton shared this info on his twitter account yesterday or the day before. Here is the twitpic from it.

Doesn't matter what he does. It's just going to be really sci-fi cool to get Stan Lee on the show. Kind of surprized that the Syfy channel had the smarts to actually renew a science fiction show. Considering their lack of science fiction programming over recent years. What? Three Ghost Hunters shows, now two wrestling programs, Mary Knows Best, Fact or Faked, Destination Truth. They are popular, but not science fiction. Even reruns of Auto Man would be better than the programs on that list I just submitted.
