TGIF! (Even if in some time zones it’s Saturday now 😉 ) I had a busy day and just got home a bit ago, so here’s your news. Let’s chalk it up to the first sunny day in awhile and move on shall we? 😀
Barry Watson (7th Heaven, What about Brian?) has landed a guest role on Drop Dead Diva as a man who is fired from his job. He’ll have Jane (Brooke Elliott) and Grayson (Jackson Hurst) as his lawyers. I’ll let you know when this episode will air, but any news about Watson or Drop Dead Diva is great news! Source
More after the jump.
Maura Tierney has officially signed on to star in ABC’s new drama, The Whole Truth, replacing Joely Richardson who backed out of the role to spend more time with her family. Tierney will play “Kathryn Peale, a deputy bureau chief in the Manhattan District Attorney’s office.” She’ll star along side Rob Morrow (Numb3rs) who plays a criminal lawyer. I’m so excited for this show, and for Tierney back on TV aren’t you? Source
Finally for tonight, Idris Elba (The Wire, The Office) will be joining the already fabulous cast of the new Showtime show, The Big C. Elba will be playing a love interest for Laura Linney’s cancer patient. The show will be focused on Linney’s character, who is struggling with cancer all the while being a wife and a mother. It’s going to be a stellar cast and I’m sure they’ll knock it out of the park on this one. Source
That’s all for tonight, check back during the weekend for more reviews and next week for more news and interviews. Happy weekend!
