  • Pellegrino is the best thing ever! He’s a like a God to all genre shows! He was awesome in Revolution! And now he’s on my most favorite show last season! Can’t wait. Ben and Jacob reunion!! I’m so excited! Wonder if he’ll exact revenge on Ben!

  • You get the feeling that cast must have gotten along pretty well, considering how much they seem to turn up on each other’s new shows. Finger’s crossed for Sawyer to go apartment-hunting at 666 Park Ave. :)

  • If past incarnations are any indication, Pellegrino’s character better watch his back around Finch!

  • Mark was also in the Brimstone episode “Ashes.” I was happy to see him on Supernatural and Grimm. Looking forward to seeing him on Person of Interest. Wish he could show up as a regular, or at least recurring on one of the shows I watch.

    • This! Give the man a regular gig already! I loved seeing him recur on The Closer.

      • If he wanted a regular gig, producers and directors would be lining up in front of his home begging him to be a lead on their shows. He just doesn’t want to be tethered to one thing for a long time which is a shame.

  • This may have been predicted by TVLine before the season started

  • You guys should dig around and let us know if Mark Pellegrino will be a recurring star on Revolution. I am dying to know . His character was introduced as more than a one time guest and now that Revolution has a full season order, its time to know that. Nonetheless great news, great casting and thanks for the info.
