Torchwood New Cast (SPOILERS)

Unofficial details on three new cast members for the upcoming American-themed Torchwood have been released. Joining Captain Jack and Gwen will be:

"Rex Matheson, a wickedly funny (operative word: wicked) CIA agent born to make waves. Almost as key to the new season are recurring characters Esther Katusi, a CIA grunt in her early 20s who learns what she’s really made of only when she’s forced to, and Oswald Jones, a convicted murderer and pedophile who will be as shocked as anyone to learn how easily infamy and fame can be exchanged for one another."

Not sure if I like the CIA angle, spies seem a little pedestrian compared to Torchwood and it probably means more government conspiracy stuff. Oswald Jones sounds like the most interesting and original character, though it's weird they gave him the same last name as Ianto. Of course, this is all very early and plenty of stuff may change--I'll probably stop avoiding spoilers now, even though we're a year out from the show airing.
