Smallville ‘s Aaron Ashmore Joining Warehouse 13

ON

Aaron Ashmore, who portrayed Jimmy Olsen on “Smallville,” will join the cast of Syfy’s “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 season two finale, Myka Bering (Joanne Kelly) abruptly quit her job at the Warehouse after being betrayed by the duplicitous HG Wells (Jaime Murray).

In addition to “Smallville,” Ashmore has appeared in 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.

“Warehouse 13” follows follows a team of government agents who work at a massive, top-secret storage facility in windswept South Dakota which 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.
