AMC's little show that could, The Killing, is getting a little more star power for season three in the form of Peter Sarsgaard. According to The Hollywood Reporter, the Lovelace star has been tapped to portray a major villain for the upcoming season of the series named Tom Seward - "a condemned [death row] inmate for whom the clock is clicking down." Yikes. Apparently, Seward is also a lifelong convict who has been committing violent crimes since he was ten, and he has a bit of a superiority complex. Double yikes.

Season three of The Killing will be set a year after the events of the first two seasons - Rosie Larson who? - and will likely return to TV sometime this year.
