VIVICA A. FOX AND "BEING HUMAN'S" SAM HUNTINGTON APPEAR IN AN ALL NEW EPISODE OF SYFY'S "FACE OFF," WEDNESDAY, FEBRUARY 8 AT 10 PM ET/PT

NEW YORK - January 26, 2012 - Actress Vivica A. Fox (Independence Day, Kill Bill) and Being Human's Sam Huntington make a special appearance in an all-new episode of Syfy's acclaimed reality competition series, Face Off, airing Wednesday, February 8 at 10 PM ET/PT.

For the Foundation Challenge, the ten remaining contestants are tasked with creating an original trauma makeup featuring wounds that may have been inflicted by a werewolf. Sam Huntington brings his expert perspective to the challenge, having worn a tremendous amount of special effects makeup in his career, including his role as a werewolf on the hit series Being Human, currently in new episodes Monday nights at 9/8c on Syfy.

When the contestants head back to the lab they are shocked to find exotic plants and animals in their work space - including a 600lb black bear, a rhinoceros, a leopard and poisonous dart frogs to name just a few. For their Spotlight Challenge, the contestants are paired into teams and asked to select one animal and one plant to serve as inspiration for an original hybrid creature that is not only beautiful but also deadly. The team challenge adds even more drama as one team clashes over the design of their spider-inspired creature, leading up to an emotional confrontation on the Face Off reveal stage.

Actress Vivica A. Fox lends her expertise as a guest judge to critique the contestant's work at the reveal, offering an on-point judging style and unique perspective as an actress very familiar with the world of special effects and the integral role it plays in entertainment.

Face Off is a competition/elimination series exploring the world of special-effects make-up artists and the unlimited imagination that allows them to create amazing works of living art. Judging the Face Off competition are some of the most renowned names in the SFX world -- three-time Academy Award winner Ve Neill, famed special make-up effects artist Glenn Hetrick and director/creature designer Patrick Tatopoulos. Together, they make a panel that is tough, smart and direct.

The Face Off artists are whittled down week by week as they compete to outshine their competition. The winning SFX artist will earn $100,000 in seed money to help encourage their special effects career, a year's supply of Alcone make up products, a Reinvented 2012 Toyota Camry Hybrid and the coveted exposure to help launch a career.

Face Off is a production of Mission Control Media with Michael Agbabian and Dwight D. Smith serving as executive producers.

Syfy is a media destination for imagination-based entertainment. With year round acclaimed original series, events, blockbuster movies, classic science fiction and fantasy programming, a dynamic Web site (www.Syfy.com), and a portfolio of adjacent business (Syfy Ventures), Syfy is a passport to limitless possibilities. Originally launched in 1992 as SCI FI Channel and currently in more than 98 million homes, Syfy is a network of NBCUniversal, one of the world's leading media and entertainment companies. (Syfy.
