Brandon Jay McLaren on "Harper's Island" (2009)

Brandon Jay McLaren (Jack, SPD) plays a small role in the new 13-episode horror miniseries "Harper's Island." McLaren appears as Danny Brooks, a groomsman and friend of lead character Henry Dunn (played by Christopher Gorham) who is sailing with his family, friends and his fiancée's family to Harper's Island for the big wedding. Unfortunately for those attending, a crazed killer is among them, murdering the guests, one by one. Danny makes it through the first episode safely, as his character is minor to the major plot of the series. He appears in several scenes as the wedding party celebrates the upcoming nuptuals. The series was filmed in McLaren's native Canada. There's no doubt McLaren's role will continue on the series.

"Harper's Island" currently airs on CBS

Ron Roggé on "Castle" (2009)

Ron Roggé (Captain Mitchell, Lightspeed) made a brief cameo appearance on the new ABC cop drama "Castle" last month. Roggé appeared in the episode "Hell Hath No Fury" playing a police officer in one scene. He has a few lines with series stars Nathan Fillion and Stana Katic as their characters arrive at a gruseome crime scene to investigate. Although his name is not mentioned in the scene, he is credited as Wolkowski in the closing credits. Roggé is no stranger to cop roles, as he's been featured on the blog playing a police officer in the films "The Animal," "Impact Point" and "Pendulum."

Antonia Prebble, Beth Allen & Morgan Reese Fairhead on "Outrageous Fortune" (2005)

Back in the first season of "Outrageous Fortune," a trio of Power Rangers alums appeared in the eighth episode "My Dearest Foe." All three of the women were part of a storyline revolving around the oldest daughter in the West family, Pascalle (series regular Siobhan Marshall). Antonia Prebble (Clare, Mystic Force) continued her starring role on the series, as the youngest West daughter, Loretta, who annoys her mother by continuously putting up a stolen clock the kids got her for her birthday. Loretta is also there to listen to her big sister's drama surrounding her modeling career. Pascalle, an animal lover, is in the running to appear in a campaign for Save the Animals, where she meets one of Loretta's old friends from dance class, Chantelle. Beth Allen (Vella, Overdrive) guest stars as Chantelle, the once chubby little girl who adored Pascalle only to be verbally abused by her constantly. Chantelle is all smiles now though, as she tells Pascalle that she became her idol and wanted to be just like her. Pascalle is convinced that the beautiful blonde will get the role and she schemes to stop her, with some suggestions from Loretta. Pascalle's attempts, however, only end up making her look foolish. Despite their real-life friendship and past on "The Tribe," Antonia Prebble & Beth Allen do not share any screentime in this episode. Given their large roles, zip files for both actresses are available to download below. Dino Thunder guest star Morgan Reese Fairhead (Kylee Styles, Dino Thunder) also appears in this episode as Xena, a receptionist with Stratosphere, the modeling agency hosting the casting call. She appears in a couple scenes, speaking with Pascalle over the phone. Xena & Pascalle have a rocky past of their own and neither likes the other.
