Robert Patrick Joins BIG LOVE

Robert Patrick

HBO’s BIG LOVE is adding a Terminator to its cast.

Entertainment Weekly reports that actor Robert Patrick will join the show’s fifth season in a recurring role, playing the leader of a polygamist fringe group named Bud Mayberry. While details of his role aren’t known, it’s probably safe to guess he’ll cause problems for Bill who will just be settling into his job as state senator. Also presumably causing problems for Bill will be the previously announced Republican Majority Leader, played by Gregory Itzin. Bill should be a very busy boy.

Patrick is probably best known for his role as T-1000 in Terminator 2: Judgment Day. He was also John Doggett on The X-Files and has appeared on numerous shows, including recent stints on Chuck, Psych, and Burn Notice.
