Christopher Lloyd To Appear In Syfy’s 12 Monkeys

Emmy Award-winning Taxi and Back to the Future actor Christopher Lloyd is set to play a guest role on Syfy’s 12 Monkeys.

Over the course of his long career, Lloyd has made a name for himself as one of the most talented actors to appear in both film and television. From early appearances in such movies as One Flew Over The Cuckoo’s Nest to guest appearances on recent TV programs like Psych, Lloyd remains highly recognizable to this day:

Llloyd will play Zalmon Shaw, a charming but deadly cult leader who preys upon other’s tragedies and losses in order to recruit new members into the apocalyptic cult the “Army of the 12 Monkeys.” Shaw is the father of the series’ most imposing villain, the enigmatic Pallid Man.

The series follows the journey of James Cole (Aaron Stanford), a man from the future sent back in time to stop the malevolent “Army of the 12 Monkeys” from destroying the world. Also starring are Amanda Schull, Kirk Acevedo, Emily Hampshire, Barbara Sukowa, and Todd Stashwick. In season three, Cole (Stanford) and Cassandra Railly (Schull) embark on a desperate search across time to find the man responsible for the apocalypse, a time traveler who calls himself the Witness.  Killing the Witness will mean saving the world. But the journey will come at tremendous personal stakes for both Cole and Railly and will call into question new alliances, old bonds, and the virtue of the mission itself.

An aspiring writer, longtime film junkie, and former disc jockey (where I graduated with a BA in Political Science), I've made the jump from penning book reviews and current events editorials for to writing movie and TV news and reviews.

When I'm not working towards my certificate in Radio and Television/Video Production at Fullerton College, I enjoy reading (horror, science fiction, and historical/political nonfiction are particular favorites), participating in my school's TV and theatre clubs, attending movie screenings, plays, concerts, and other events, and trying to come up with pithy things to say on social media. Believe it or not, there are occasions where I find time to write for my own leisure.
