ABC's No Ordinary Family is continuing the fun trend of casting familiar TV faces as cool super villains. The latest to sign up as a Powell family foe is 24 and Six Feet Under alum Eric Balfour. Eric will play a death row inmate named Marcus Winnick in two episodes that will likely air in March.  

Viewers seem to be responding to NOF's villain-of-the-week stunt casting, which has also included sinister visits from Rick Schroder, Anthony Michael Hall, and most recently, Lost alum Rebecca Mader. Rebecca's episode this week gave the show a nice ratings lift, so the Powells should keep an eye out for many more guest villains in the future.
