Hey All,

Here are the news items for today, including some Q&A’s from Entertainment Weekly so please tread lightly if you don’t want to be spoiled:

TELEVISION

Actress Jamie Ray Newman (Eastwick and recurring stints on Drop Dead Diva and Eureka) will guest star in CSI: NY as Claire Taylor, the wife of Mac (Gary Sinise), who was lost during the Sept. 11 terrorist attacks. She will appear in flashbacks during the show’s Season 8 premiere which airs on September 23 at 9 PM. (Adam Bryant at TV Guide)

Talk show host Craig Kilborn will guest star in the season premiere of Chuck, which returns for its final season on NBC on October 21. He will play Roger Bale, a charming yet conniving investor who has stolen money from some of the world’s most dangerous people. The twist? Mr. Bale is rather dangerous himself! It’s probably safe to say Kilborn will have a run-in with the episode’s other Big Bad, Star Wars alum Mark Hamill. (Michael Ausiello at TV Line)

Actress Molly Parker (Deadwood) has landed the female lead in the TV adaptation of The Firm – the book by John Grisham that was famously made into a movie starring Tom Cruise. Parker will play Abby who, ten years ago, helped her husband Mitchell McDeere (Josh Lucas from Sweet Home Alabama) bring down a Memphis law firm that was a front for the Chicago mob. The cast of the NBC series – that still has to be given an official air date – will co-star Juliette Lewis (Natural Born Killers) as Tammy, Mitch’s feisty, sexy receptionist and Callum Keith Rennie (The Killing and Battlestar Galactica) as Ray McDeere, Mitch’s charming yet volatile older brother whose work as an investigator in Mitch’s office is uniquely informed by his past stretch in prison for manslaughter. (TV By the Numbers)

Actors Tom Skerritt and Bailey Chase will guest star in an upcoming episode of White Collar with Skerritt playing Alan Mitchell, the discerning dad of Elizabeth (Tiffani Thiessen), who is a psychiatrist and a protective father. Meanwhile, Chase will step into the role of Bryan McKenzie, a Sterling-Bosch vice president whom Sara (Hilarie Burton) suspects of stealing a Stradivarius. They will appear in the same episode that is slated to air in January when the show returns for its final six episodes of the current season. (TV Guide)

Actress Aly Michalka (Hellcats and the box office film Easy A) will guest star in an episode of CSI: NY next fall. She will play a hard rocker named Miranda who explodes onto the stage of New York’s hottest underground clubs. Her character is questioned by the CSI team when the guy she’s been dating is found murdered. (Lynette Rice at Entertainment Weekly)

BOX OFFICE NEWS

Young actor Lucas Till (X-Men: First Class) has joined the cast of the box office thriller Stoker that stars Nicole Kidman, Mia Wasikowska and Matthew Goode and was written by Prison Break actor Wentworth Miller. The film is about a teen who is mourning the death of her father at the same time her mysterious uncle appears in her life. (Joshua L. Weinstein at The Wrap)

SPOILER ALERT!!

Q&A SECTION (with Sandra Gonzalez at Entertainment Weekly)

Question: Can I assume that Shawn and Jules are in a happy relationship when we come back for next season of Psych? — Stephanie

Sandra: They’re going strong, I hear! But they’re not the focus of the season by any means. James Roday told me in a chat prior to Comic-Con that he wanted to make sure the relationship wouldn’t interfere with the dynamic of the show. “My biggest fear with Shawn and Jules — and there are many examples on other shows of when the “Will they or won’t they?” finally comes together, it just isn’t good anymore, and I think because of that we’re proceeding with caution,” he said. “We’re trying to keep it real. Predominantly, their relationship is based on work because that’s where they spend the most amount of time — so not a lot changes on that front. And they’re just kind of figuring out what they are outside of work and taking very slow baby steps in doing it so that nothing feels forced or strange.” Hoping for a soap opera of love? Probably not what you’ll find this season, he says. “We really don’t want to go there. I think we’ve done a pretty good job of protecting the show so that people don’t have to worry about that. I can personally guarantee all of our fans that they will not be disappointed. We’re just as wacky and wily. At its core, this is always going to be a show about two best friends living out a childhood dream, and there’s no way around that. That’s what we are, and that’s what we’ll always be.” Anyone else feel the need to cheer right now? He gets us, he really gets us!

Question: Any scoop on Burn Notice? Framing Michael for murder was a pretty great twist. (But poor Grant Show!) — Jessica

Sandra: Expect the twists to keep coming, says creator Matt Nix. “It’s a pretty twisty season. I mean, I’d say there are a couple of big, hard twists coming up. It depends on what you think of as a twist and then the summer season-finale is one of our twistiest episodes ever. We just finished filming that,” he teases. “There’s a lot that goes on before that. It really heats up coming to the end of the season. I just got finished directing that [last] episode, and it’s very, very, very intense.” Preview Next week we’ll have dish from Nix about how Gavin Rossdale is going to put Fiona and Michael’s relationship to the test!

Question: Castle scoop, Sandra? You know you want to! — Joanne

Sandra: Don’t tell me what I want! Kidding. Actually, I’d prefer you did because, God knows I have no freaking clue. Anyway, if you followed word from Comic-Con, you already know about plans for a superhero-themed episode and a Halloween-themed episode. But executive producer Laurie Zaks told me preliminary plans to send the gang to the premiere of the Nikki Heat film in L.A.! (The show typically shoots its New York setting on a stage in L.A.) So does that mean Laura Prepon would reprise her role as the title character of the movie? Possibly, says Zaks. “That would totally depend on her schedule, and she got cast in a pilot. If you’ll remember, the character was sent off to rehab, so hopefully she’ll be out of rehab by then,” she said with a laugh.

Question: Thanks for being among the only one to give Haven some love, Sandra. I’m dying for a little intel on Jason Priestley’s character! — Martha

Sandra: Why, thank you! I’d bow, but that’s a bit much, I think. Look for Priestley’s character to bring out the “girly side of Audrey” in episode 6, according to star Emily Rose. “What happens is really fantastic and I can’t wait for it to come out,” she says. “We see a personal side of Audrey in a really unique way.”

That’s it. Enjoy!

Hey All,

Here is the news for today with some interesting casting items and more. Please read on:

TELEVISION

Actress Alicia Coppola, who has a recurring role on The Nine Lives of Chloe King (and is probably best known for her work on the short-lived but fan-favorite series Jericho) will guest star on an upcoming episode of the USA Network new series Suits as Alexandra Leeds, a woman from Harvey’s (Gabriel Macht) past who suddenly appears to stir up some big trouble for the legal eagle. Additionally, she has been promoted to recurring status on the cable network’s recently ordered-to-series buddy cop show, Common Law. (Megan Masters at TV Line)

BBC America has picked up a new drama for the summer of 2012 called Cooper, which centers on a young Irish cop operating in the immigrant communities of 19th century New York. The series received a 10 episode order. (DanielleTBD at Twitter)

Actor-Comedian Eddie Izzard (The Riches) will have a guest starring role on The Good Wife, playing Abbott Thrush, an upper-class English barrister brought in to fight Lockhart/Gardner in a libel case that finds its way into British court. The Good Wife will return on September 25 at 9 PM on CBS. (TV Guide)

Actress Paula Marshall (Cupid and Californication) will play Malificent, the nemesis of Sleeping Beauty on the new ABC series Once Upon a Time, the fairy tale drama that will debut this fall on October 23.

(Maureen Ryan at AOL TV and Megan Masters at TV Line)

Actress Julie Benz (No Ordinary Family) has changed her status on the new fall medical drama A Gifted Man, which is set to debut this fall on CBS. Her character, the sister of Michael (Patrick Wilson), an ultra-competitive surgeon whose life is changed when his dead ex-wife (Jennifer Ehle) starts visiting him, will now be a recurring character rather than a series regular. (Deadline)

MADE FOR TV MOVIE NEWS

Actors John Corbett and Gary Cole and actresses Julie Benz and Kelly Overton have been cast in the two-hour movie Ricochet, based on the best-selling book by Sandra Brown, which will air on TNT. Det. Sgt. Duncan Hatcher (Corbett), a sexy Savannah homicide cop, falls hard for Elise Laird (Benz), a dishy damsel-in-distress. She’s married to corrupt Judge Cato Laird (Cole), who consistently subverts Hatcher’s efforts to bring a local drug lord to justice. Things get complicated when Hatcher and his feisty partner, Det. DeeDee Bowen (Overton), are called to the Laird home after Elise supposedly shoots an intruder in self-defense. This made for TV movie is part of the new Tuesday Night Mystery movie franchise slated to launch in November on TNT. The franchise will feature six contemporary crime dramas, from true-crime stories to fictional mysteries. (Deadline)

DEVELOPMENT NEWS

Cable network A&E has decided to not pick up the proposed pilot of Big Mike – that was to star Greg Grunberg (Alias and Heroes) as a plus-size detective with the San Diego Police Department. Meanwhile, the fate of the new pilot Longmire, which is based on the Walt Longmire Mystery series of novels by Craig Johnson, is still up in the air, but the “buzz” is strong and the network “is leaning heavily toward picking it up to series”. Longmire is about Walt Longmire (Robert Taylor from Matrix), the charismatic, dedicated and unflappable sheriff of Absaroka County, Wyoming. Widowed only a year, he is a man in psychic repair but buries his pain behind his brave face, unassuming grin and dry wit. The cast includes Katee Sackhoff (Battlestar Galactica), Lou Diamond Phillips (Stargate Universe), Bailey Chase (Saving Grace) and Cassidy Freeman (Smallville). (Deadline)

BOX OFFICE NEWS

Actor Lee Pace (Pushing Daisies and soon to be seen in The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn and The Hobbit) has joined the cast of the upcoming film Lincoln, playing opportunistic New York City mayor Fernando Wood, a prominent early supporter of the Confederate cause. The mayor traded frequent correspondence with President Lincoln (Daniel Day-Lewis). (Deadline)

Actress Rosario Dawson and actor Vincent Cassel have joined the cast of the upcoming thriller called Trance, which stars James McAvoy and Cassel as partners who concoct an elaborate art heist that goes awry. Dawson will play a woman who has an unusual relationship with both men. (Deadline and Dark Horizons)

Actress Cody Horn (Rescue Me) has joined the cast of the indie cop drama called End of Watch that follows the friendship of two long-time LAPD partners (Jake Gyllenhaal and Michael Peña). Horn will play a policewoman opposite America Ferrera (Ugly Betty) and Anna Kendrick (The Twilight Saga franchise). (The Hollywood Reporter and Dark Horizons)

Actress and Oscar nominee Jacki Weaver (Animal Kingdom) has signed on to star in the upcoming thriller called Stoker. The film is about a teen, mourning the death of her father and has to deal with an eccentric uncle who shows up unexpectedly. The cast includes Nicole Kidman, Mia Wasikowska (Alice in Wonderland) and Matthew Goode (Leap Year and Watchmen) in a movie written by actor Wentworth Miller (Prison Break). (Deadline and Dark Horizons)

Actresses Jamie-Lynn Sigler (The Sopranos) and Nadia Bjorlin (Days of Our Lives) and actor Jonathan Bennett (Mean Girls) will star in the first romantic comedy from the Indian company RR Movie Makers called Divorce Invitation. The story is about Mike (Bennett), a happily married man, who runs into his high school sweetheart, realizing she is his true soul mate. The huge problem: he signed an iron-clad pre-nuptial agreement and his wife (Sigler), who will not let him out of the marriage. (The Wrap)
