Exclusive: 'Fringe' snags 'Wire' grad Andre Royo

fringe-torv-royoImage Credit: Sylvain Gaboury/PR Photos; Inset: Michael Lavine/FoxFringe has tapped Wire alum Andre Royo (a.k.a. Bubbles!) to guest star in the show’s third season premiere, sources confirm to me exclusively.

Royo will play Henry, a soulful taxi driver who is unexpectedly forced into a tense situation with Olivia (Anna Torv).

But are we talking about the [warning: incoming spoiler] real Olivia or Fauxlivia? My guess is it’s Fauxlivia, since the real one won’t be running into any cab drivers while in captivity “over there.”

Royo’s casting comes a week after Fringe recruited Amy Madigan to play the pivotal role of Olivia’s mom.

    Or it could be real Olivia escaping from captivity and on the loose in the alternate universe – hijacking his cab.

    • Aliza

      maybe that’s how she runs into Fauxlivia’s mom. I don’t exactly see Walternate letting Mama Dunham see his nifty little prison, but Olivia on the run might look for her.

    • Mena

      Yeah, that was my guess, too. Maybe Olivia will escape from Walternate in the first episode, and then the next few episodes could be about Olivia trying to make it back to our dimension. Bring on season three!

    • LOL

      I want a massive BJ from Anna Torv!

      • Scooptress

        Damn right.

      • Jay

        Stay classy!

  • Monica

    My thoughts exactly, chrismisc.

    • Brian

      I’m gonna second Aliza’s idea. Either way: FUN.

  • skellington

    Oh, I love this show…

  • Gillian

    Ooh! Some Fringey scoop. I like to think that Ourlivia will run into him. I CAN’T WAIT.

  • Billy Manners

    This has cheered me up majorly after the emmy nonsense (John Noble getting snubbed again).

    • Kim

      Me too. That really sucked.

      • Coz

        Maybe AlterJohn was nominated.

  • Markham

    Yup, I think it’s real Olivia too. They can’t have her in the cell for too long, it wouldn’t be much interesting. Tense situation in a taxi cab? Bring it on!

    Fauxlivia has the big SUV and stuff, don’t need a cab :p

  • Mincha

    …?! Awesome!

  • mindy johnson

    I hope that the real Olivia comes back on. It won’t be the same without her. I can’t wait to see Fringe again. I love it. Totally awesome show.

  • jon

    Great show can’t wait for the new season to start.

  • Abie

    Have Olivia’s cortexiphan powers fully manifested? Maybe at some point she will be able to travel between dimensions all by herself?

  • Ripley

    Okay, you got me. Now I’m going to use the summer to finally watch Fringe. I love Bubbles!!
