“Drop Dead Diva” has announced two more guest stars for its fifth season.
Jordan Wall (“The Glades”) and Josh Randall (“Ed”) will appear on the Lifetime series, which makes its fifth season debut June 23 at 9 p.m.
Wall will play Brad Pines, a chemistry grad student who is a protégé of Stuart Kane (played by Randall). Pines is an ambitious researcher who drops everything to help his mentor after he is arrested at LAX for attempting to smuggle drugs out of the U.S.
Sandra Bernhard, John Ratzenberger, Barbara Corcoran, Brigid Brannagh and Reiko Aylesworth will also guest star this season.
“Drop Dead Diva” was canceled in January but a new agreement between Sony Pictures Television and producers revived it a couple of months later.
In the season premiere, entitled “Back from the Dead,” Jane (played by Brooke Elliot) searches madly for Owen (played by Lex Medlin), who disappeared after seeing her kiss Grayson (played by Jackson Hurst) right before their wedding. Jane also represents a father trying to save his eight year old son after his drug treatment for T-cell Lymphoma is terminated by a pharmaceutical company. Luke (played by Carter MacIntyre) gets replaced as Jane's guardian angel.
