I’d like to add another entry to EW.com’s 12 Reasons We’re Psyched for Caprica list: James Marsters joins the cast on March 5! As previously reported, the Buffy vet plays Barnabus Greely, an enigmatic and dangerous leader in the monotheist world. In other words, he’s Spike minus the fangs — hence the reason I’m psyched.

Caprica premieres tonight at 9 pm/ET on Syfy.
