NEW YORK, Aug. 14 (UPI) -- Hollywood actor Christopher Lloyd has joined the cast of the upcoming four-hour, fantasy/adventure miniseries, "Mirabilis," Sci Fi Channel said Thursday.

Lloyd is best known for his roles as Emmett "Doc" Brown in the "Back to the Future" trilogy and as the Rev. Jim Ignatowski on the classic TV sit-com "Taxi."

Sci Fi said he will play Tesselink, "a venerable senior elf and accomplished master of bloodsteel sorcery who aids his granddaughter Perfidia (Natassia Malthe) and a band of knights in their quest for the crucible that may save Mirabilis" in the new miniseries.
