Everybody Loves Raymond star Brad Garrett is now in talks to join the comedy Burt Wonderstone, which tells the story of rival magicians in Las Vegas. Steve Carell will star as a more traditional magician who is upstaged by the hip and dangerous illusionist played by Jim Carrey.
The hugely impressive cast also include James Gandolfini, Olivia Wilde and Steve Buscemi with The Hollywood Reporter announcing that Garrett will play Carrell's acountant, at least until the magician fires him. The show will be directed by Don Scardino of 30 Rock fame, who is planning to start filming in January and will hopefully be premiered toward the end of the year of the start of 2013.
Meanwhile Mark Moses has also joined the cast of The Killing for the it's second season. The Hollywood Reporter is reporting that Moses will play Lt. Carlson, "a new detective who joins the Seattle police departmen and the inverstigation into Rosie's death." TV Line has added that Carlson is " a clean-cut, well-dressed lawman in his 50s who tends to keep tabs on which way the political winds are blowing."
This is one of two major additions in season two, with Moses appearing in at least eight episode. The creator of The Killing Veena Sud has promised that "We will solve the investigation of who murdered Rosie Larsen - all will be revealed - and there will also be a second case that emerges."
Another recurring character in addition to the Mad Men star will be Alexi, a 19 year old Polish American veteran of the foster system who, with his myriad piercings and tattoos, is described as a "scary looking, dark and frightening" teen who turn on a dime emotionally.
The Killing is likely to return in April 2012, however an official premiere date has yet to be announced.
