Sissy Spacek Joins Big Love

In 2010 Winter Schedule, Big Love, Casting, HBO on 09/17/2009 at 4:37 pm

Sissy Spacek

The LA Times Show Tracker blog broke the news yesterday morning that Sissy Spacek is planning to join the cast of HBO’s poly-affair Big Love.  When we first heard she would be joining the series for multiple episodes of the fourth season, we immediately jumped to the image of her on the compound in frumpy-frock fashion and secretly hating life as a sister-wife…The fit seemed kinda perfect.

Then we realized she’s actually slated to star as a political lobbyist!  Silly us for type casting such a fine actress.  Just because she shined as a coal miner’s daughters doesn’t mean she should be automatically relegated to the compound, right?  I mean, with a half a dozen Academy Award nominations, she probably knows how to handle herself in any role.

Big Love is slated to return for it’s fourth season in January 2010 on HBO.

Melissa McCarthy Joins ABC’s Hank!

In 2009 Fall Season, 2009 Pilots, ABC, Casting, Gilmore Girls, Hank, Samantha Who? on 08/27/2009 at 11:44 am

Melissa McCarthy

We love it when favorite actors of ours find new roles!  Michael Ausiello broke the word yesterday that Melissa McCarthy has been hired to appear in Kelsey Grammer’s upcoming ABC sitcom Hank.  She’s set to takeover a reccurring role as Dawn, Kelsey Grammer’s sister-in-law.  We last saw Melissa as Dena on ABC’s recently ended Samantha Who?, though we of course fell in love with her as Sookie St. James, brilliant chef and talkative best friend of Lorelai on Gilmore Girls.

You can see a preview of Hank that we posted last month here.

Hank premieres on ABC Wednesday September 30th at 8pm.

Starbuck Joining Cast Of 24

In 24, Battlestar Galactica, Casting, Fox on 06/08/2009 at 10:45 pm


Starbuck aka Kara Thrace aka Katee Sackhoff is joining the cast of 24‘s eighth season. EW‘s Michael Ausiello (who else?) broke the news that the Battlestar Galactica alum will be joining the cast as a CTU computer analyst. I was hoping the character would feature Starbuck’s piss n’ vinegar attitude but Ausiello says her character will be “a highly respected and down-to-earth data analyst”.

Information on the eighth season of 24 has been leaking out since before season seven even ended when word came out that the next season would be taking place in New York City. Since then, we’ve also learned Anil Kapoor, the creepy game show host from Slumdog Millionaire, will be a star, Cherry Jones will be returning as the president, the character of FBI agent Renee Walker will make a come back and Freddie Prinze Junior will be running the New York CTU branch.

Ausiello also says Sackhoff’s character will be in a relationship with Freddie Prinze Junior’s.
