Aaron Ashmore

Looks like Syfy’s WAREHOUSE 13 is getting itself a new agent. InsideTV reports that former Smallville actor Aaron Ashmore is joining the summertime hit as a series regular.

Ashmore is set to play the role Steve Jinks, a young ATF agent with an ability to tell when somebody is lying. Jinks is recruited to the job by Mrs. Frederic (CCH Pounder) to be Pete’s (Eddie McClintock) new partner as they continue the search for mysterious artifacts.

Fans will remember in last year’s second season finale, Myka Bering (Joanne Kelly) quit her job at the Warehouse after being betrayed by HG Wells (Jaime Murray).

The third season of Warehouse 13 will run 13 new episodes this summer. Last season the series averaged 3.4 million viewers, making it Syfy’s most-watched show.

Ashmore played Jimmy Olsen on Smallville, until his character was killed off 2009. The actor has also appeared on shows like In Plain Sight, Veronica Mars, and Fringe.
