Pilot Scoop: Michelle Trachtenberg Joins 'Save the Date,' NBC Lands Michael Rosenbaum & More!

 

It's pilot season, which means the news is swarming with an array of different casting updates and series orders. Here's a round up of some of the most recent stars who booked a few new gigs this winter.

According to Deadline, 'Buffy' alum Michelle Trachtenberg has teamed up to co-star opposite 'Psych's Maggie Lawson in CBS’ half-hour sitcom 'Save the Date,' which centers around newly single Kate (Lawson), who drunkenly books a wedding venue, resulting in a race against time to find Mr. Right. (No pressure though!)

Trachtenberg will assume the role of Kate's no-nonsense sister, Hillary, who also happens to be her roommate. Tom Bennett will play Roger, Hillary’s boyfriend of four years, while Julie White has nabbed the role of Connie, the girls' mother.

Up next, we have 'Smallville's Michael Rosenbaum, who is set to co-star opposite Krysten Ritter in NBC's upcoming pilot 'Mission Control,' Deadline reports. This Will Ferrell-produced comedy tells the story of a 1960s workplace and examines what happens when a strong woman (Ritter) butts heads with a macho astronaut in the race to land on the moon.

Rosenbaum has been given the part of Lex Luthor Bus — a handsome, jockish, stubborn, but very likeable NASA astronaut. (Anyone else thinking he sounds like a perfect love interest candidate for Ritter's character?)

Meanwhile, The CW drama 'The Messengers' — which follows a group of strangers charged with preventing an apocalypse after surviving a mysterious event — has managed to round up a few new cast members as well, according to Deadline.

Sofia Black-D’Elia ('Gossip Girl,' 'Skins') will play Erin, a single mom who, despite the stresses in her life, is eager to make a fresh start for herself and her young daughter, far away from her hot-headed ex-husband's grasp. Meanwhile, Joel Courtney ('Super 8') has nabbed the role of Peter, a loner who was raised in a group home and gets bullied constantly.

God lord what a steaming stinky pile. I thought Lex had issues with working? He hasn't appeared all that much in anything, when he does it is worth the effort to watch.
