SYFY PILOT THREE INCHES CASTS JAMES MARSTERS, ANDREA MARTIN, STEPHANIE JACOBSEN, ANTONY DEL RIO, NAOKO MORI, KYLE SCHMID AND BRANDON JAY MCLAREN

Alona Tal, Craig Eldridge and Julian Richings to Guest Star

Production Commences in Toronto August 30

New York City, New York - August 26, 2010 - Syfy's Three Inches has added an all-star cast to the 90-minute pilot, starring Noah Reid (Strange Days at Blake Holsey High). James Marsters (Smallville, Caprica, Buffy the Vampire Slayer), Andrea Martin (My Big Fat Greek Wedding, SCTV Network), Stephanie Jacobsen (Melrose Place, Battlestar Galactica: Razor), Antony Del Rio (The Super Hero Squad Show), Naoko Mori (Torchwood), Kyle Schmid (Blood Ties) and Brandon Jay McLaren (TRON: Legacy, Harper's Island) will join the action-adventure/fantasy as series regulars. Alona Tal (Veronica Mars), Craig Eldridge (Covert Affairs) and Julian Richings (Supernatural) will guest star in the pilot episode.

Three Inches, from Fox Television Studios and Landscape Entertainment, will begin production in Toronto, Canada on Monday, August 30.

In Three Inches, professional daydreamer and underachiever, Walter Spackman (Reid) is struck by lightning, and develops a unique "super" power -- the ability to move any object using just his mind... but only a distance of three inches. He's soon recruited by a covert team of superheroes each gifted with their own extraordinarily ordinary abilities. Together, the unlikely band of heroes proves that "super" is simply a state of mind.

Jace Alexander (Rescue Me, Prison Break) is directing the pilot, written by Harley Peyton (Twin Peaks), who also serves as executive producer. Fox Television Studios is producing with Executive Producer Robert Cooper, through his company Landscape Entertainment. J.J. Jamieson heads up television for Landscape Entertainment.

James Marsters will star as Troy Hamilton, a former government agent who takes Walter in to his own team of "super" heroes who fight evil wherever they find it. He is a father figure to Walter.

Andrea Martin will play Belinda Spackman, Walter's mother, a brutally honest, comically cynical force of nature that loves her son more than words can say and will do anything to protect him.

Stephanie Jacobsen plays Watts, a beautiful "super" hero who has the ability to shape the emotions of anyone she meets at close range.

Antony Del Rio will portray The Human Smell, an adventurous, often irritating teenager who is able to emit a pungent gas through his pores that disables anyone nearby.

Naoko Mori plays Annika, a woman who can duplicate and broadcast any sound she hears.

Kyle Schmid will play Brandon, the "super" hero team leader with all the cockiness and strength of a true action hero, minus the superpowers. He is the opposite of Walter and sees most of the team as freaks.

Brandon Jay McLaren plays Macklin Sportello, Walter's best friend, a big talker with not a lot to back it up. His relationship is tested when Walter begins to change, but he's the friend that will always be there for him.

Alona Tal will guest star in the pilot as Lily Theroux, the kind, pretty girl next door and Walter's long time crush who loves him but "not in that way."

Craig Eldridge will guest as Todd, part of Troy's team of "super" heroes who can see two minutes into the future at the cost of a massive disabling headache.

Julian Richings will also appear as a guest star playing Ethan, a man with the ability to communicate with and control the insect kingdom.

Fox Television Studios' scripted programming slate includes the hit cable series Burn Notice and White Collar for USA, The Glades for A&E, as well as network shows The Good Guys (FOX), The Gates (ABC) and Persons Unknown (NBC), with FX's Lights Out and AMC's The Killing (working title) slated to air in 2011. The studio is also in production on the FX pilot Outlaw Country.

Bob Cooper founded Landscape Entertainment in 2004, a film & television company whose credits include NBC's Medical Investigations, the feature John Tucker Must Die and the comedy Mr. Woodcock. Landscape has already sold series projects to USA, Fox, CBS, A&E, AMC and Syfy. Mr. Cooper's considerable r�sum� includes posts as CEO of Artisan Entertainment, President of Production at DreamWorks SKG, President of TriStar Pictures, and President of HBO Films.
