“Battlestar Galactica” junkies, nerds, uber-fans, latecomers who stayed up day and night to finish the series in a few weeks (you know who you are), you have a reason to celebrate. “Arrow” has targeted stars from sci-fi television shows. In addition to “Torchwood’s” John Barrowman, Tahmoh Penikett from “Battlestar Galactica” will appear in “Arrow.” Penikett announced on his Official Facebook Page that he’s currently filming for a guest role that may or may not increase to a multi-episode arc.
GreenArrowTV confirmed the news:
Penikett will be playing Tom Salvati, right hand man to Jeffrey Nordling’s mob boss Frank Bertinelli. Bertinelli is, of course, the father to Helena Bertinelli, who also happens to be crimefighter known as The Huntress. She first appears in Arrow Episode 7, “Muse of Fire.”
“Arrow” can be enjoyed by nearly everyone now, including (but not limited to) sci-fi lovers, people with Batman withdrawals, girls who love six-packs and well, girls who love six-packs. I am in for the long haul. Mostly because I fit all four categories. Do you?
