Fall TV Preview

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

Billy Zane Legends of Tomorrow

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.
