Doug Jones of Hellboy fame has been added as a villain for the second half of Teen Wolf season 3.
According to TV Line, Doug Jones will be a season 3 villain. There’s no word yet if he’ll be the only one, but considering Teen Wolf likes to throw as much at their characters as they can, it’s quite possible he won’t be.
Jones’ character will be called Barrow and will be a “known killer.” There’s also no word yet on whether or not he’ll be a supernatural villain or a human one, but TV Line does refer to him as a “monster.”
Barrow will appear in season 3, episode 15, which will be the third episode of the second half of season 3. This episode will be titled “Galvanize.”
Season 3B will begin airing on January 6, 2014. The cast and crew are currently shooting the final 12 episodes for season 3.
Jones has played a variety of characters, and playing a non-human wouldn’t be out of his range. One of his best known roles was Abe Sapien in the Hell Boy franchise. He was even one of the Gentlemen in Buffy.
Although we don’t know much about his character right now, we’re sure he’s going to bring plenty of creepiness to the role. We’re definitely looking forward to seeing who exactly he’ll be playing and what Barrow’s motivations will be.
Previous casting news for Teen Wolf season 3 has come in the form of Arden Cho playing Kira, an Asian-American student of Beacon Hills. We don’t know much about Cho’s character either, but it’s quite possible she’ll be tied to the kitsune myth.
In Teen Wolf season 3B, the story will focus on Japanese folklore, which includes the kitsune. The kitsune is a werefox (among other things, depending on the legend). Could Jones’ character be tied to the myth as well, or will he be a separate diversion our favorite characters will have to deal with?
