While I was posting my little rant about the Weinstein Company’s “way out”, some new infos have been surfacing regarding TV stuff:
Damages’ third season has added another regular to its table: Royal Pains’ Campbell Scott.
Also, Greek’s Jesse Williams (who will soon star in Cabin in the Woods) has just joined Grey’s Anatomy for a multi episode arc.
Dollhouse has added loads of great actors including kind of a Whedonverse reunion with Summer Glau and Alexis Denisof. Michael Hogan and Keith Carradine are also joining the cast.
Does the show have the best cast on TV right now or what?
And Superman Returns’ Brandon Routh is joining Chuck for a substantial arc.
Speaking of, Josh Schwartz is teaming up again with another Chuck exec, Matt Miller, to write a multicamera sitcom script for CBS. The potential show would follow young newlyweds shortly after their honeymoon. The series is supposedely inspired by both Miller and Schwartz’s recent marriages.
I wonder how that will turn out.
After The L Word, here comes another letter-word Showtime series, The C Word.
The cable network has ordered to pilot a show that would star none other than Frasier/John Adams’ Laura Linney. C Word, created by Darlene Hunt, will be a dark comedy about cancer. Linney will play “a suburban mom forced to deal with a cancer diagnosis”.
And finally, some fantastic news for all Leverage fans out there.
The show has already been renewed for a third season (to be aired later next year).
