In addition to all of the other news we’ve been reporting, here are a few entertainment and TV headlines you might have missed:

-Fans of 'The Office' will be excited to hear that show alum Brian Baumgartner is heading back to the small screen in a guest-starring role on FX's 'The Bridge,' TVGuide exclusively reports. He will play Gary, a recovering alcoholic who is the AA sponsor of Daniel Frye (Matthew Lillard).

-TVLine has exclusively learned that 'The Wire's Andre Royo has recently been cast in Amazon’s hour-long drama pilot 'Hand of God.' The project will center around the powerful and law-bending Judge Harris Pernell (Ron Perlman), who experiences a religious awakening and starts hearing voices through his ventilator-bound son, which could actually be God speaking to him. Royo will play the part of Bobo, the local mayor and Pernell’s best friend.

-USA's police drama 'Graceland' has nabbed two new members to its team in the form of Carmine Giovinazzo ('CSI: NY') and Jon Sklaroff ('24,' 'Life'), who have both been cast in recurring roles. Giovinazzo will play Sid Markham, the head of LAPD’s Gang Task Force, who is described as being "more mind than muscle." Meanwhile, Sklaroff will take on the role of Fritz — a man who has made his living through human trafficking and uses intimidation and brutality to keep “his property” in line.
