Michiel Huisman

Michiel Huisman might just have as many alter egos as Orphan Black‘s protagonist Sarah (Tatiana Maslany).

The actor, who can currently be seen on Nashville and will appear on the upcoming season of Game of Thrones, has landed a recurring role on Orphan Black, BBC America announced Friday.

Huisman will play Carl Morrison, a rugged, resourceful outdoorsman with surprising emotional depth and a sixth sense about people and situations — skills that will come in handy when he comes in contact with the clones.

Nikita alums Peter Outerbridge and Ari Millen have also landed recurring roles on the series. Outerbridge will pop up as Henrik “Hank” Johanssen, a modern-day cowboy who leads a flock of followers that have broken away from the old world “Prolethean” brotherhood. Under his vision, the divide between science and religion has merged to form a powerful new threat.

TV’s worst cops

Millen has been cast in the role of Mark, a cunning predator with a darkness to him. Mark is utterly devoted to Johanssen, who took him in and made him a true believer. Now Mark is relentless in his pursuit of the clones.

Season 2 of the hit series will find Sarah desperately racing to find her missing daughter (Skyler Wexler). Orphan Black will return with new episodes in April 2014.
