Another nail landed in the Smash coffin Monday: Star Debra Messing has been cast in the lead role of an untitled CBS comedy pilot from former Sex and the City writers, TVGuide.com has learned.
Bethany Joy Lenz
One Tree Hill fans, rejoice! And be a little scared. TV Guide Magazine has learned exclusively that the fabulous OTH vet Bethany Joy Lenz will be recurring on Dexter's eighth season, which is set to premiere on June 30 at 9/8c.
Described as "an attractive former finance executive looking for a quieter life," Lenz's character, Cassie, is slated to debut in the season's fourth episode and will wind up moving in next door to Dexter. While it's doubtful she will actually find life so close to a serial killer to be peaceful, we have a sneaking suspicion that her arrival will shake things up for Dex as he and Deb continue to pass themselves off as normal, non-homicidal, slightly-incestuous siblings.
Fresh off of whatever they saw in the trunk at the end of Tuesday's Pretty Little Liars season finale, those law-breakers have a new problem to deal with! TV Guide Magazine has learned exclusively that Sean Faris has been cast on ABC family's hit teen mystery in the recurring role of Pennsylvania state police officer Gabriel Holbrook.
Rainn Wilson has signed on for his first post-Office gig. The actor has landed the title role in CBS' drama pilot Backstrom, TVGuide.com has learned.
