Warehouse 13 has a new agent.
Former Smallville actor Aaron Ashmore is joining Syfy’s summertime hit as a series regular.
Ashmore will play Steve Jinks, a young ATF agent with an ability to tell when somebody is lying. Jinks is recruited by Mrs. Frederic (CCH Pounder) to be Pete’s (Eddie McClintock) new Warehouse 13 partner as they search for mysterious artifacts.
As fans know, last year’s second season finale had Myka Bering (Joanne Kelly) quitting her job at the Warehouse after being betrayed by HG Wells (Jaime Murray). As for whether Kelly will appear on the show again … well, that’s a good question. We’ll have to wait and see on that one.
Season 3 of Warehouse 13 will have 13 new episodes this summer. Last season the series averaged 3.4 million viewers, making it Syfy’s most-watched show.
Ashmore’s Jimmy Olsen was killed off on Smallville in 2009. He’s also appeared on shows like In Plain Sight, Veronica Mars, and Fringe. Random factiod: Warehouse 13 received an Emmy nomination last year for Outstanding Main Title Theme Music.
