"Nikita" actor Xander Berkeley will join Season 3 of Syfy's "Being Human."
Set for a recurring role, Berkeley ("Terminator 2: Judgment Day") plays the vampire-hunting father of Connor (Jon Cor) and Brynn McLean (Tracy Spiridakos). He is expected to appear in eight episodes.
In addition, Season 3 will see Kristen Hager promoted to a series regular as werewolf Nora Sergeant.
"Being Human," which is is expected to return in 2013, stars Sam Witwer, Meaghan Rath, Sam Huntington and Mark Pellegrino, and it's based on the acclaimed U.K. series, "Being Human," created by Toby Whithouse.
The Syfy series follows three supernatural roommates -- vampire Aidan (Witwer), ghost Sally (Rath) and werewolf Josh (Huntington) -- who share their secrets and a Boston brownstone, while attempting to live everyday lives. Together they learn that there are fates worse than death and more to life -- and the afterlife -- than most "normal" humans could ever imagine.
Michael Prupas ("The Kennedys"), Jeremy Carver ("Supernatural") and Anna Fricke ("Everwood") serve as showrunners, executive producers and writers for the series.
Rob Pursey and Toby Whithouse also executive produce.
