TERRA NOVA continues to fill out its cast in advance of next month’s anticipated start of production.

Entertainment Weekly reports that Mido Hamada, who portrayed Samir Mehran in 24‘s final season, has signed onto the series regular role of Guzman, the security team head who acts as an advisor to colony leader Frank Taylor (Stephen Lang).

Terra Nova is a highly anticipated FOX drama about a group of people who travel 85 million years back in time to save modern civilization. Jason Mara, Shelley Conn, and Allison Miller will also star.

While Terra Nova won’t officially premiere on FOX until fall 2011, it will have a special preview next May, much like Glee did, very successfully, in 2009.
