As for the new guest stars, they include:
Sean Astin (The Lord of the Rings franchise) will play Roland, an Alpha who has a bizarrely absorptive brain, which allows him to assume the memories of anyone close to him and then replay them like a tape recorder;
C. Thomas Howell (Southland) will play Eli Aquino, an intense Alpha with super-speed who is bent on revenge;
Lauren Holly (NCIS) will play Senator Charlotte Burton, a government official with mysterious ties to a member of the Alphas team;
Steve Byers (Against the Wall) will play John Bennett, a new member of the tactical team from the U.S. Department of Defense assigned to the Alphas team;
