'Nikita': Stan Lee to make a kick-ass cameo

stan-lee-mct-320.jpgThere's a treat this fall on The CW, truebelievers.

Marvel Comcics legend Stan Lee will make a cameo on an upcoming episode of "Nikita," a rep for the show confirms to Zap2it. The story was first reported by IGN.

Lee had swung by Fan Expo in Toronto this past weekend, making it convenient for him to tape his guest appearance on the Canadian set. He'll make his "Nikita" debut on the fifth episode, which will air on Oct. 7.

That just happens to be the same episode that Devon Sawa will swing by to give Nikita ( Maggie Q) some trouble.

So far, there's no word exactly what Lee's role will be -- whether he'll play himself or another small role. We'd like to see him play an evil mob boss called The Chairman.

The guest appearance came about serendipitously when Q and Lee ran into each other in July at San Diego's Comic-Con, where they discussed his possible participation. Lee has made numerous cameos in both film and on TV, most recently appearing in "Iron Man 2" and on "The Big Bang Theory."

"Nikita" debuts on Thursday, Sept. 8 at 9 p.m. ET/PT.

Excelsior!
