'Revenge' Promotes Barry Sloane to Series Regular

The sophomore season addition, originally slated to recur through episode 13, will now appear in the entire back nine.

Emily Thorne's (Emily VanCamp) complicated love interest is sticking around.

Revenge has upped 
Barry Sloane to a series regular, an ABC rep confirms to 
The Hollywood Reporter, after originally tapping him to recur over the first half of the season as Aiden Mathis.

First appearing in the season two premiere, Sloane's character has yet to fully reveal his motives on the show -- only that he spent time with Emily in Japan and that the two share a romantic past.

As a part of his new deal, Sloane will appear in each of the final nine episodes of the current season, starting his regular status in episode 14, with an option to return for the potential third season.

For those keeping track of the plot, this news seems to rule out Aiden as the owner of the dead hand glimpsed in the premiere's ominous flash forward. Showrunner Mike Kelley says that storyline will wrap up with episode 14.

Sloane came to Revenge after ABC declined to pick up his 20th TV drama pilot Gotham. He is repped by The Collective, Innovative Artists and UK’s BWH Agency.

I never noticed that until now. He looks better in motion.

I honestly thought it was Looper JGL in that pic when I scrolled by quickly
phallus 24th-Oct-2012 02:20 pm (UTC)
Yes. Moar this guy with a sexy accent, less of those two annoying brothers.
wickedground 24th-Oct-2012 02:24 pm (UTC)
I'd rather see her with Aiden than with the other two flops. But only Prince Nolan is her worthy.
musicnextdoor 24th-Oct-2012 05:11 pm (UTC)
Agreed. But I'm not happy about this news. The show already has too many sucky regulars.
setsuna16 24th-Oct-2012 02:25 pm (UTC)
I like this guy and love the soap, but last week's episode, with Amandaly falling over the BANNISTER was a bit too over the top soapy for me. She couldn't have just fallen down the damned stairs?
phallus this shit is funny tho..24th-Oct-2012 02:27 pm (UTC)

True, tis amusing indeed.
suburb_fabulous Re: this shit is funny tho..24th-Oct-2012 02:45 pm (UTC)
I was losing interest in the show, but this has convinced me to watch this week's episode. lol
viva_espanyol Re: this shit is funny tho..24th-Oct-2012 02:49 pm (UTC)
Totally didn't see that coming lmao
zeldafitzgerald Re: this shit is funny tho..24th-Oct-2012 03:21 pm (UTC)
The thing that irritates me the most about this is that the bannister is so obviously not up to code (how do I know this stuff?).

Holy shit, grammar fail.

idk man, falling down the stais is equally as soapy imo.
phallus 24th-Oct-2012 02:25 pm (UTC)
Anyone know which episode this is from?

chibi 24th-Oct-2012 02:27 pm (UTC)
not any that have aired. maybe next episode?
teaaet 24th-Oct-2012 02:30 pm (UTC)
victoria's wedding episode, i think 2x06
treebraids 24th-Oct-2012 04:06 pm (UTC)
this face.
alkalinecupcake 24th-Oct-2012 02:26 pm (UTC)
i should really try to catch up on season 2!
brosling 24th-Oct-2012 02:26 pm (UTC)
i prefer emily with him instead of jack so i am for this
chibi 24th-Oct-2012 02:26 pm (UTC)
im only ok with him being a regular if it means theyre going to brutally murder jack and/or declan, thus it being their bodies on the amanda ala the first episode flashforward.
phallus 24th-Oct-2012 02:29 pm (UTC)
It's probably going to be that guy who wants to buy the restaurant or you know, it could actually be him who dies too.
chibi 24th-Oct-2012 02:31 pm (UTC)
before this announcement, i thought aiden was gonna be the boat body, but its definitely pointing towards the blackmailer dying. probably some stupid non-dilemma for emily with having to stop kicking ass and taking names to help fix jacks stupid murder.
dumpyfledgling 24th-Oct-2012 02:30 pm (UTC)
This. Emily needs a badass to keep up with her. Nolan is a technology badass. Aidan could potentially be a badass. If things work out & Emily is willing to share, this could be a threesome.
hearthecity 24th-Oct-2012 02:40 pm (UTC)
double murder of Jack and Declan works
wristtattoos 24th-Oct-2012 03:20 pm (UTC)
lol i wish they would kill off amanda so "emily" could come clean and be my OTP with jack. the scene with the doggie was so sad and convinced me they should be together.
severalstories 25th-Oct-2012 12:35 am (UTC)
I know they'll torture us with Declan's continued existence forever, but I just can't give up hope that he's the one getting killed off. I'm not nuts about Jack, either, but Nolan & Emily's boundless fondness of him is pretty adorable, so he can stay.

NGL, I have been feeling Emily/Daniel this season. Must be because the actor looks more handsome this season
watch_mex0x0 24th-Oct-2012 02:39 pm (UTC)
mmmm that haircut
hearthecity 24th-Oct-2012 02:40 pm (UTC)
ia, but I think it's because I heard him speak irl and his accent is hot
phallus 24th-Oct-2012 02:45 pm (UTC)
Where is he from?
lollapoe 24th-Oct-2012 02:43 pm (UTC)
The prospect of Emily and Jack makes everything seem great by comparison.
treebraids 24th-Oct-2012 04:05 pm (UTC)
same here. And the character is less of a clueless dumb arse as well.
geekchicrichie 24th-Oct-2012 02:33 pm (UTC)
OMG I made that gif like a year ago!!
Also, his character is a bit meh tbh.
watch_mex0x0 24th-Oct-2012 02:35 pm (UTC)
no thnx
robertsbox_xo 24th-Oct-2012 02:44 pm (UTC)
ugh his character is such a bore so far. hopefully he does something interesting soon if he's sticking around
musicnextdoor 24th-Oct-2012 05:16 pm (UTC)
He's a bore and he tries to control Emily -- granted, he's supposedly doing so on behalf of Takeda, but he supposedly loves Em, so it makes him come off as a controlling love interest. Not good.
bellwetherr 24th-Oct-2012 02:45 pm (UTC)
This is such good news. Aiden has so much potential. I need to see him and Emily kicking ass side by side.
