Sean Astin plays 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.
So… relatively similar Kat’s abilities, then?
Roland will be seen during two Alphas episodes: If Memory Serves (October 8) and the following episode Need to Know (October 15)
Judging by the name of the first episode he’s in, Roland will have a large part in the episode. Also, at Comic-Con there seemed to be naming confusion - he has been called both Roland and Mitchell. So I won’t make a tag for him quite yet…
But I’m leaning towards Mitchell, I mean, surely a Sean Astin dedicated blog would know???
