'V': Bret Harrison joins Season 2

bret-harrison-320.jpg "V" is adding a Reaper to its cast for Season 2.

Bret Harrison, who starred on The CW's "Reaper" from 2007-09, will have a recurring part on the ABC show when it returns at midseason, the network says. His character, Dr. Sidney Miller, is an evolutionary biologist who will first appear in the season premiere.

Erica ( Elizabeth Mitchell) and other members of the Fifth Column track him down, believing he has information about the Red Sky seen in last season's finale.

Harrison's casting comes a few days after the news that Jane Badler, the villain in the original "V" miniseries from the early '80s, will also have a recurring part in Season 2.

In addition to "Reaper," Harrison has starred on "The Loop" and "Grounded for Life." He also starred with Christian Slater in a FOX comedy pilot (called "Security" and "Breaking In" at various points in its development) in the spring, but it wasn't picked up to series.

"V" is set for a midseason premiere on ABC.
