Some casting news today, as CBS's spinoff of NCIS: Los Angeles added a regular role while AMC's The Killing procured two new series regulars for its return.
Scott Grimes, best known for his roles on ER and Party of Five, joins the planted pilot for the NCIS: LA spinoff as Dave, a highly capable forensic specialist with an eye for clues and a nose for lies.
The spinoff will follow a mobile team of agents who must live and work together as they traverse the country solving crimes. The cast so far includes John Corbett (Northern Exposure) and Edwin Hodge (Red Dawn). Both Grimes and Hodge have appeared previously in the NCIS franchise in guest roles playing different characters.
When The Killing returns from the dead for its third season later this year, the crime drama will be sporting two new regular characters. British actor Max Fowler will play Twitch, a good-looking and street-smart teenager with a history of prostitution, drug possession, and trespassing. He has always managed to charm and manipulate his way out of compromising positions and dreams of a Hollywood career as a model/actor.
Bex Taylor-Klaus, an 18-year-old newcomer from Atlanta, has been tapped to play a 16-year-old tough guy named Bullet who protects the local street girls. It turns out that Bullet is in fact a girl herself.
Production on Season 3 of The Killing is slated to commence on February 25 in Vancouver.
