Brandon Jay McLaren on "Human Target" (2010)

Brandon Jay McLaren (Jack, SPD) made a brief guest appearance in the fifth episode of the FOX drama "Human Target". In the episode titled "Run," McLaren appears as Omar, a not-so-legitimate technology expert who is an acquaintance of one of the show's main characters, Guerrero (played by Watchmen star Jackie Earle Haley). The episode follows lead character Christopher Chance as he's hired to protect a district attorney who becomes a murder target when she investigates an organized crime family. When Chance discovers that she's injested a tracking device, he calls upon Guerrero to try to remove it. When he's unable to do so without physically harming her, he seeks out Omar's advice. Brandon Jay McLaren appears in one extended scene where his character tries to explain that the only way to get rid of the tracking device is to cut it out. But, their conversation leads Guerrero to figuring out a way to block the signal the device sends to its satellite.

Eka Darville & Craig Parker on "Spartacus: Blood and Sand" (2010)

The cable action drama "Spartacus: Blood and Sand" continued with two PR alums amongst the cast in its second episode titled "Sacramentum Gladiatorum." Former Red Ranger Eka Darville (Scott, RPM) made his debut as Pietros, a slave boy who is kept in the gladiator training compound known as the ludus. Pietros can be seen throughout this episode as Spartacus is introduced to the world of gladitor training. Pietros can be seen giving a massage to the gladiator Barca in his first scene. He later helps with training the new recruits by passing them weapons on command. Pietros can also be seen in the background with Barca, while the gladiators have a meal. Darville plays a small background role and had no lines in this episode. Ninja Storm voice actor Craig Parker (voice of Motodrone, Ninja Storm) reprises his role as Spartacus' nemesis, Claudius Glaber from the first episode of the series. Glaber visits the ludus and taunts Spartacus over enslaving his wife and vowing that he will die a slow death as a Gladiator. With Glaber watching, Spartacus finds the desire to fight and kill to save his wife.
