Scoop: 'Warehouse 13' hails 'Taxi' driver Judd Hirsch

But wait, there’s more…

The Gates’ Paul Blackthorne also appears in the hour as a workaholic who runs afoul of a thief with a Santa fetish.

And, while we’re on the subject of the most wonderful time of year, Eureka has also announced its seasonal stunt-casting: SNL alum Chris Parnell. Here, 30 Rock’s Dr. Spacemen will play a Global Dynamics scientist who endangers more than the office Christmas party when one of his experiments goes, to put it mildly, awry.

No air dates for either eppy yet, but since it’s what, 104 degrees outside? It’ll be a while before they’re on.

In the meantime, though, feel free to share your thoughts below. Preferably your thoughts about Warehouse 13 and Eureka, but hey, I’m not particular.
