Apparently, like me, having managed to avoid Suddenly Susan almost entirely, NBC has tapped Brooke Shields to star in its hot-property pilot Lipstick Jungle, based on Candace Bushnell's novel about a trio of affluent Manhattan power mongers. The onetime Calvin Klein model will play a movie mogul/wife/mother. So I guess being scolded irrationally by Tom Cruise worked out pretty well for her.... In other casting news, well-preserved '90s relic Grant Show has landed the lead in CBS' '70s-set drama pilot Swingtown. Can a gig for Patrick Muldoon be far behind?
