Sam J. Jones, who starred as the title character in the 1980 cult classic Flash Gordon movie, will guest star in an upcoming episode of the SCI FI Channel original series Flash Gordon. Jones will be playing a character named Krebb in an episode titled “Revelations,” which is set to air in October.
Mark Stern, executive vice president of SCI FI Channel, said earlier this month that the show’s producers were working on incorporating a cameo appearance by Jones into the series.
