Nikita‘s Nerd and Fletch are reuniting for a buzzy Syfy project.

Noah Bean has been tapped to co-star in the cabler’s 12 Monkeys pilot, which previously cast the CW spy thriller’s Aaron Stanford in its lead role.

An adaptation of the 1995 Terry Gilliam film, Monkeys follows the journey of Cole (Stanford), a time traveler from the post-apocalyptic future who appears in present day on a mission to locate and eradicate the source of a deadly plague that will eventually decimate the human race.

David Bradley (the Harry Potter films, Game of Thrones) has joined FX’s new thriller The Strain. From Carlton Cuse (Lost, Bates Motel) and Guillermo del Toro (the Hellboy films, Pan’s Labyrinth), the series stars Corey Stoll (House of Cards) as the head of a Centers for Disease Control team in New York City. Unexpectedly, the group is tasked with investigating a mysterious viral outbreak with the hallmarks of an evil strain of vampirism. Bradley replaces John Hurt as a pawn-shop owner who may have imperative information about the disease.
