Brad Dourif to Play Key Role in Fringe Season Finale

at . Comments

A key role for Fringe‘s Season 3 finale will be filled by Deadwood alum Brad Dourif.

He will play a mysterious character named Moreau in the sure-to-be-intense installment airing Friday, May 6. The interesting wrinkle regarding this casting move?

Producers sought “well-known Japanese actor who speaks English” to fill the role.

B. Dourif

Dourif is not a Japanese actor, but he does have a long resume filled with fright film credits, most recently playing the sheriff in Rob Zombie’s Halloween redos.

He also played The Lord of the Rings‘ Wormtongue, and since Fringe fave John Noble was Denethor ... well, that doesn't mean much, but it's a fun coincidence.

Any thoughts on what this mysterious new character could be and what his role could be in the Fringe season-ender? Sound off with your comments below.

Elizabeth: Sometimes what we have is not the world we want, but we have our hearts and our imaginations to make the best of it. I will promise you this: I will be the best mother I possibly can be to you. I'll take care of you, I will protect you and I will never let anyone take you away from me. No one. Not ever.
Peter: But you're not her, are you? You're not my real mother.
Elizabeth: You were sick. You were very sick for a long, long time and I think it confused you. Yes, I am your mother, of course I am.
