Matt Czuchry is perfect for this role. Super excited for this casting and this pilot.
Love Taye Diggs. Hope his presence elevates some of these struggle performances on the show. I also hope they don’t over do the guest stars this season.
Yesss!!! This Star Wars cast is shaping up quite nicely.
Ughh another remake/reboot. This might be interesting though with Zoe Saldana.
Zoe Saldana should probably pick up a copy of What to Expect When You’re Expecting Satan’s Spawn, because she’s been cast as the lead in NBC’s adaptation of the horror classic Rosemary’s Baby.The Star Trek siren will play Rosemary, the role made famous by Mia Farrow in Roman Polanski’s 1968 film, in the Peacock Net’s upcoming miniseries based on Ira Levin’s demonic novel.

NBC’s version of the tale moves the action to Paris, where young wife/mother-to-be Rosemary and her husband move into an apartment with a dark history. As time passes, Rosemary becomes convinced that her husband and neighbors have nefarious designs on her unborn child.
Saldana will also co-executive-produce the four-hour project with a team that includes Joshua Maurer (Rubicon) and Lionsgate Television. Agnieszka Holland (Treme) will direct, with a script by Scott Abbott…

Woooooooooooo!!!! New black female cast member. I checked out some of Youtube videos of her and she’s pretty funny. Hopefully SNL can write some good material for her.
Oh snap. Loveee Khandi Alexander. I can see why they cast her.
Scandal‘s about to have a “Whoa, mama!” moment.
Khandi Alexander (Treme, CSI: Miami) has been cast in the recurring role of Maya Lewis, late mother of Kerry Washington‘s Olivia Pope, and will start appearing in flashbacks beginning with this Thursday’s episode (10/9c on ABC), according to The Hollywood Reporter.
Alexander currently stars in HBO’s Treme, which kicks off an abbreviated fourth and final season Dec. 1 on HBO.
Last week’s Scandal included a doozy of a plot twist involving the character Alexander will play. (Click here for our recap if you don’t mind getting spoiled.)
Excited about Alexander joining Scandal? Looking forward to flashbacks of Liv and her mom? Sound off below!
I liked Cecily Strong last season. In the little she was given, she was pretty funny at it. I doubt they let her go solo though. I’m sure Seth Meyers is going no where.
The Girl You Wish You Hadn’t Started a Conversation With at a Party will now be driving the pop culture conversation, as a co-anchor of Saturday Night Live‘s Weekend Update segment.
SNL boss Lorne Michaels tells the New York Times that starting with the late-night sketch show’s Season 39 premiere (airing Sept. 28), sophomore cast member Cecily Strong will sit alongside veteran news reader Seth Meyers at the WU desk, mocking headlines.
“Cecily, from the first show, was right there,” Michaels said of Strong’s first year with SNL. “She exploded.”
Whether Strong goes solo on Weekend Update once Meyers’ run as host of NBC’s Late Night begins in late February remains to be seen. Michaels seems to be holding out some hope that since Meyers won’t shoot Late Night on…

Yess love me some Lisa Kudrow. Ready to see her do more dramatic roles.
Lisa Kudrow is headed to Scandal, but will she be a friend or foe to the Gladiators?

The gig brings Kudrow under the same tent as her longtime producing partner, Scandal Emmy nominee Dan Bucatinsky.
