Amy Acker and David Morse

I have said it before, I say it again: The Buffyverse is en fuego these days.

Angel's Amy Acker, who currently is sporting some nassssty scars on Joss Whedon's Dollhouse, has joined ABC's murder-mystery pilot Happy Town, playing the wife of Geoff Stults' top cop.

Elsewhere on the Alphabet network, both Michael Nouri and David Morse have taken residence in Empire State, playing the respectively blue-blooded and blue-collar fathers of a modern-day Romeo and Juliet.

Meanwhile, Eric Christian Olsen (aka Greenatopia guru Kyle on Brothers & Sisters) has landed the lead in an untitled ABC comedy from Family Guy's Ricky Blitt, revolving around a man-child torn between his best bud and the new love of his life and her kids.
