Fall TV Preview
Billy Zane Legends of Tomorrow

TVLine Items: Billy Zane Visits Legends, Jason O'Mara to High Castle and More

Legends of Tomorrow is staging a Titanic reunion, tapping Billy Zane to portray politician and showman P.T. Barnum, who founded Barnum & Bailey Circus (aka “The Greatest Show on Earth”).

Per EW.com, Zane will guest-star in a Season 3 episode, during which he will share the screen with Titanic castmate Victor Garber, who plays Dr. Martin Stein/one half of Firestorm on the CW series.

On Legends, Barnum is “the villain of our story,” but he is also “just a guy who wants to put on a good show,” executive producer Phil Klemmer previews.

Zane’s TV credits include Guilt, The Deep End, Samantha Who? and Twin Peaks.

Legends of Tomorrow returns for Season 3 — with a new Muslim hacktivist team member! — this fall, airing Tuesdays at 9/8c after The Flash.

    He was also on Charmed. I also can’t wait for Mindhunter! Jonathan Groff and Anna Torv?!

    Excited to see Jason O’Mara actually playing an Irishman for once. He has played so many American characters at this point.

    Billy Zane needs to be Lex Luthor!

    • TheDude says:

      Its the CW…that will never happen. They will recycle some other pretty 20 something CW actor and shave his head if they ever do Lex luthor in the CW tv verse
