It looks like actor Craig Ferguson is going from good cop to bad news. The popular genre actor, best known for walking the beat as Sheriff Jack Carter for five years on Eureka, is joining the regular series cast of Haven for season four.
According to Deadline, the new season of Haven picks up six months after season three’s cliffhanger ending where the titular town was nearly destroyed by a meteor shower. Ferguson comes into the picture as William, a “handsome, mysterious stranger, whose secret agenda” involves Haven lead character Audrey Parker (Emily Rose).
It should prove interesting to see Ferguson play a darker character, as you may have inferred from his years on Eureka, Ferguson has a lot of comedic experience behind him as one of the founders of Second City Detroit and as a member of the Montreal improv group On The Spot. What will Ferguson bring to this world originally created by Stephen King? I guess you’ll have to wait for the new season of Haven to see.
Since Eureka wrapped Ferguson has guest starred on the series Happily Divorced and Primeval: New World. Meanwhile, filming of the fourth season of Haven got underway in Halifax, Nova Scotia.
