Other fronts:

Peter Wingfield tweets that he will be filming an episode of Alphas, a new Syfy show that kicks off in about a month (July 11, with Callum Rennie guest starring in the pilot). From
Peter is going to be on an episode of SyFy's new show Alphas playing the character James Collier, directed by Leslie Libman. The show, which shoots in Toronto, has not begun airing yet but stars the oscar winning actor David Staithaim as Dr. Leigh Rosen, the head of Section 8, a team acting under the auspices of the National Security Agency with a mandate to locate and assess the threats posed by 'alphas', human beings with enhanced abilities due to differences in their brain structure.
Can't confirm this anywhere, but Tahmoh Penikett might show up on The Killing tonight.

Last not least, a new interview clip - Esai Morales talks activism:
