Dallas Roberts has been unforgettable in numerous recent roles, including the doomed Milton Mamet on The Walking Dead and Alicia Florrick's gay brother, Owen, on The Good Wife. Now he's landed a steady gig as Poppy Montgomery's inscrutable new NYPD boss, Elliot, on Unforgettable. Here's why he lives up to the show's title.
Much has changed on the Unforgettable set since the drama about NYPD cop Carrie Wells (Poppy Montgomery), who has near perfect memory, was canceled more than a year ago by CBS, then miraculously brought back to life. The action has moved from a grimy Queens precinct to the shiny, high-tech Manhattan Major Crimes Section, and the show's tone has been similarly lightened, in keeping with its off-season scheduling (the first of eight summer episodes aired July 28, with five more new installments to follow later).
Anthony Weiner might be feeling a little hot under the collar after his most recent headline-making scandal, but The Good Wife writers are reveling in his latest misconduct. "I think we're the happiest people writing right now because we have so much to write about," co-creator and executive producer Robert King told reporters at the Television Critics Association fall TV previews on Monday. "It's the gift that keeps on giving," star Julianna Margulies added. "We're starting Season 5 and it feels brand-new....

Poppy Montgomery will never forget when Unforgettable was un-canceled.
"I got the call and I was like, 'Where's Ashton Kutcher? This is Punk'd!'" she tells TVGuide.com. "I was like, 'This is not real, c'mon, people!' It was really fast. I really thought it was a practical joke. I trust that the networks and studio know what they're doing and what they need and want. If it's not meant to be, it's not meant to be, and I really thought it wasn't last year. So many shows get canceled. It's so rare to bring a show back."

The Walking Dead took a shocking turn in Sunday's Season 3 finale, killing off a character who is still alive in the comics more than 100 issues in. Sure, the show has taken liberties with character deaths before, but this particular death is such a departure that one must question whether this will alienate fans of the comic books.
Again, spoiler warning.
