Ian Ziering brings his Sharknado swagger to Defiance on July 17 as Conrad Von Bach, a gunrunner who shares a past with Berlin (Anna Hopkins). To defeat Rahm Tak, the new baddie played by Lee Tergesen, "the town of Defiance desperately needs weapons," explains executive producer Kevin Murphy. “Conrad will sell them to anyone who can pay his price.”

This first photo shows Ziering in character. The Syfy drama returned earlier this month, and the season ahead will feature moral dilemmas and major deaths.
