Star Trek: The Next Generation’s Brent Spiner will be returning to television with a guest role on SyFy’s Warehouse 13 tonight.
Spiner’s role will be that of Brother Adrian, a new villain.
The TV Guide description of the episode says that “Artie Nielsen [Saul Rubinek] and the gang are on a mission to pull their lives back together and Brother Adrian is a major obstacle to that. The Brotherhood is descended from the Knights Templar and connected to the Vatican. It is charged with the protection of many powerful artifacts, one of which Artie desperately needs to make everything right again.”
Warehouse 13 Executive Producer Jack Kenny first saw Spiner perform in something rather different than Star Trek: The Next Generation. “I love Brent Spiner, [but] I don’t have the same relationship with him [as Trek fans do]”, said Kenny. “I saw him as John Adams in 1776 on Broadway. We knew that we were creating this role of Brother Adrian that would be a nemesis for Artie.”
Season Four of Warehouse 13 premieres tonight at 9 PM on Syfy.
