Aaron Ashmore, who portrayed the iconic character Jimmy Olsen in "Smallville," will join the cast of Syfy's hit series "Warehouse 13" as "Steve Jinks," a young ATF agent with an innate ability to detect when someone's lying. Jinks is recruited by the all-powerful Mrs. Frederic (CCH Pounder) to be Pete Lattimer's (Eddie McClintock) new Warehouse 13 partner.
In last year's gripping season two finale, Myka Bering (Joanne Kelly) abruptly quit her job at Warehouse 13 after being betrayed by the duplicitous HG Wells (Jaime Murray).
In addition to "Smallville," Ashmore has appeared in television series such as "In Plain Sight," "Veronica Mars" and "Fringe."
The third season of "Warehouse 13" will return with 13 new episodes beginning this summer.
During its second season, "Warehouse 13" averaged 3.4 million total viewers, 1.5 million adults 18-49, 1.8 million adults 25-54 and a 2.4 household rating, based on DVR Live +7 data, making it the most watched Syfy series of 2010.
"Warehouse 13" follows a team of government agents who work at a massive, top-secret storage facility in windswept South Dakota, a warehouse that houses every strange artifact, mysterious relic, fantastical object and preternatural souvenir ever collected by the U.S. government. The warehouse's caretaker, Artie Nielsen (Saul Rubinek), charges Pete Lattimer (McClintock), Myka Bering (Kelly) and young apprentice Claudia Donovan (Allison Scagliotti) with chasing down reports of supernatural and paranormal activity in search of new objects to cache at the warehouse, as well as helping him to control the warehouse itself.
"Warehouse 13" is produced for Syfy by Universal Cable Productions. Jack Kenny ("The Book of Daniel") is executive producer and showrunner.
