Grant Show, Julia Ormond
Jake who? In what I like to imagine is a calculated move to take himself off the "Melrose Place reboot" market, Grant Show has signed on to play the boss of Jenna Elfman's unexpectedly pregnant film critic in the CBS comedy pilot Accidentally on Purpose.
Since CBS' Swingtown got its groove off, Show has ...
Brian Austin Green and Gabrielle Union

Who better to lord over Mischa Barton and a gaggle of other wannabe supermodels than one of the beauty biz's premiere mannequins?
Elle Macpherson, whose acting career to date is perhaps best summed up with Batman & Robin (though Sirens did have its certain charms...), has landed a recurring role in A Beautiful Life, the CW's Ashton Kutcher-produced pilot about models cohabitating in a co-ed Big Apple residence.

Eric McCormack, Freddie Prinze Jr.
Eric McCormack may get a chance to show us the funny again, with a starring role in an untitled ABC comedy pilot from Tad Quill (Scrubs). McCormack would play a heart surgeon and new dad, while Reno Wilson (Blind Justice) is his best bud, a contractor.
Cast as their wives are Jolie Jenkins (Shasta McNasty) and Constance Zimmer (Entourage), respectively.
Theoretically, this new comedy is a "second position" situation for McCormack, meaning ...
Reiko Aylesworth, Gail O'Grady
If you seek Lost's Amy beyond this spring (or beyond the 1970s, for that matter), you may be out of luck. Reiko Aylesworth, who only joined up with the Dharma Initiative for a handful of episodes, has landed a role in Jerry Bruckheimer's untitled ABC drama pilot about amateur detectives.
Among a multitude of other ABC pilot castings from the Hollywood Reporter, Gail O'Grady (NYPD Blue) has been cast in ...
The CW's Melrose Place has found its newest resident in Cloverfield star Jessica Lucas.
Lucas will join Melrose as rich kid Riley Richmond, a 24-year-old inner-city elementary school teacher (she cares, people!), says The Hollywood Reporter. Riley's engaged to Jonah (Michael Rady), but is having second thoughts about walking down the aisle.
Lucas knows what it's like to be on a reboot. She recurred as ...
