JAMES MARSTERS JOINS SYFY'S CAPRICA

New York, NY � August 19, 2009 � Fan favorite James Marsters has been cast in Syfy's upcoming series Caprica as the dangerous terrorist leader Barnabus Greeley. Driven by moralistic and yet carnal desires, this unpredictable villain is constantly torn by his conflicting motivations.

Humanity's storyline takes completely new twists with Caprica, which follows two rival families and their patriarchs � Daniel Graystone (Eric Stoltz) and Joseph Adama (Esai Morales) � as they compete and thrive in the vibrant realm of the 12 Colonies, a society recognizably close to our own. This original, standalone series will feature the passion, intrigue, political backbiting, and family conflict in an omnipotent society that is at the height of its blind power and glory�and, unknowingly, on the brink of its fall. Caprica also stars Paula Malcomson (Amanda Graystone), Polly Walker (Sister Clarice Willow), Magda Apanowicz (Lacy) and Alessandra Torresani (Zoe Graystone). The series is from Universal Cable Productions and is executive produced by Ronald D. Moore, David Eick and Jane Espenson. Jonas Pate serves as co-executive producer and director. Jeffrey Reiner (Friday Night Lights) directed the pilot. Caprica premieres January 22, 2010.

Marsters may best be known around the world for his ever-popular cult character "Spike", the punk-goth vampire he played on Buffy the Vampire Slayer and Angel for seven years. After working six years on the hit show Buffy the Vampire Slayer, he made the move to Angel for the last season it aired. Marsters has received and been nominated for numerous awards worldwide.

Marsters recently had recurring roles on three television series: Without A Trace, Smallville and the UK hit Torchwood. When he joined the cast of Smallville as �Brainiac� in 2005, his appearance saw the ratings rise by an estimated 50%. Initially hired for just one episode of Torchwood, the creators immediately recognized a good thing and signed him up for two more. On film, Marsters was last seen as the co-lead, opposite Hillary Swank and Gerard Butler, in the Richard LaGravenese film, P.S. I Love You, based on the best-selling novel by Cecilia Ahem, as well as this year's Dragon Ball Evolution for 20th Century Fox opposite Emmy Rossum and Justin Chatwin.
