Luck alum Jason Gedrick is joining Dexter for a multi-episode arc, Showtime announced on Tuesday.
Gedrick will play the manager of a Miami-area gentlemen's club that becomes linked to a high-profile murder case. He joins Rome alum Ray Stevenson as recurring stars on the drama next season.
Neal McDonough will star in TNT's drama pilot LA Noir, Deadline reports.
Exclusive: Frank Darabont on his new TNT show and leaving The Walking Dead
The project, which will be written and directed by former Walking Dead showrunner Frank Darabont, is about the decades-long conflict between the LAPD and the L.A. mob. McDonough will play former LAPD chief William Parker, who's dedicated to taking corruption out of the police department.
Taking a break between scenes, Blue Bloods' Donnie Wahlberg places two smartphones within easy reach. The onetime teen heartthrob is so connected to social media that instead of watching his hit cop show on Fridays at 10, he reads real-time Tweets to gauge what viewers like or don't. Happily for the actor who plays Det. Danny Reagan, the "likes" win — Blue Bloods and Wahlberg rule the night...
Cheers to Justified for adding another piece of work to its rogues' gallery.

Faced with the prospect of filling Margo Martindale's Emmy-winning "sh--kicker" boots, FX's down-home crime drama has wisely decided to flood the zone with as many baddies as possible. We've recently been introduced to Neal McDonough and Mykelti Williamson — both alums of...
So You Think You Can Dance

Question: I heard somewhere that Fox will be canceling So You Think You Can Dance after this season and that this season will be shaved down a bit. How can this be true? This is one of the very best "reality" shows on TV. It's classy, inspiring, emotional, and I keep being amazed ...
Gary Basaraba will be putting on a cop's uniform once again for a guest spot on Blue Bloods, TVGuide.com has learned exclusively.
Check out photos of the Blue Bloods cast
Basaraba, who starred as a police officer on both Steven Bochco's Brooklyn South and NBC's short-lived Boomtown, will play Jimmy, a former partner of Tom Selleck's Commissioner Frank Reagan. As we first reported, Jimmy once saved Frank's life and vice versa.
When the two reconnect, Jimmy hopes to capitalize on the friendship and asks Commissioner Reagan for a promotion to commander...
As the Blue Bloods cop most likely to shove a perp's head in a toilet, Danny Reagan (Donnie Wahlberg) makes it hard to tell which side of the law he's on. "He's a gray guy," says Wahlberg. "Is anyone really good or bad?" Though Danny exercises a little flexibility with constitutional rights, he's always a stand-up older brother to the youngest Reagan, Jamie (Will Estes), who recently joined the force...
Jeers to Scoundrels for not living up to its title.
ABC's summer crime dramedy (at least I think it's trying to be funny) suffered a huge loss when Neal McDonough was reportedly sacked after three days of production because the devout Catholic refused to shoot sex scenes with costar Virginia Madsen. McDonough brings a riveting malevolence to every role he plays, from sleazy DA David McNorris on Boomtown to psycho killer Dave Williams on Desperate Housewives. He surely would've lived up to the name of Palm Springs crime family patriarch Wolfgang "Wolf" West.
Here's the real crime: McDonough was replaced by David James Elliott, a likably generic TV hunk best known for his role as straight-arrow military man Harmon "Harm" Rabb on JAG. But on Scoundrels, Elliott seems...
FX's Justified is my favorite new show of the spring. And based on its premiere's big ratings, others obviously dig Raylan Givens' brand of gun-toting justice. A few reasons why the show (Tuesdays at 10/9c) is worth your time:
FX shoots to kill with Justified
1. Elmore Leonard Inspired It
Hollywood's love affair with the prolific Leonard has ranged from excellent adaptations (Get Shorty, Jackie Brown) to bad (TV's Karen Sisco and Shorty sequel Be Cool). Justified borrowed all the best Leonard elements (cool characters and muscular dialogue) for its pilot...
Timothy Olyphant, Justified
What would Elmore do?
That's the question Graham Yost (Boomtown) kept asking himself while creating Justified, the new FX drama based on one of Elmore Leonard's characters, Deputy Marshal Raylan Givens.
"It sounds so cliché in Hollywood to say I've always been a big fan of Elmore Leonard, but it's true," Yost tells TVGuide.com. "I always loved his writing, his approach to his characters, the humor, the danger, the tension, the sudden violence. It just all appealed to me. And I liked Raylan Givens."
Givens appears in two of Leonard's books — Pronto and Riding the Rap — and the short story "Fire in the Hole" on which Yost, the series' executive producer, based the pilot. Leonard's work has inspired such big-screen hits as Out of Sight, 3:10 to Yuma and Get Shorty.
The Givens character that Leonard created on the page — a modern-day lawman with a Wyatt Earp sense of justice — is ...
