This week the casting couch features a handful of actors who will be showing up on a returning fan favorite series, two upcoming new series and a returning cable favorite:
Character actor Patrick Fischler (Lost and Mad Men) will appear on Suits, playing A. Eliot Stemple, a Harvard Law School classmate of Harvey’s (series lead Gabriel Macht) with whom he has a unique (and tense) history. Suits will be back with the rest of its current, third season on the USA Network in early 2014.
Actor Joel Gretsch (The 4400 and V) has joined the cast of the new Lifetime drama Witches of East End that will debut this Sunday, October 6. He will play Victor, a mysterious doctor who has an unknown connection to the Beauchamp family of witches.
Actor Jimmy Jean-Louis (who played the “Haitian” on Heroes) will appear in a multi-episode arc on Arrow, playing a character called “The Captain”, a mysterious and deadly associate of Professor Ivo (Dylan Neal from Cedar Cove and Blood Ties) who has a connection to a Season 2 mystery called “Amazo”. Arrow will air its season premiere on The CW on October 9.
Actor RJ Mitte (Breaking Bad) will have a recurring role on the ABC Family drama Switched at Birth, playing Campbell, a pre-med college student paralyzed by a snowboarding accident who works at the free clinic alongside Daphne (series lead Katie Leclerc). Switched at Birth will be back with more new episodes in January 2014 on ABC Family.
Actress Halle Berry will star in the straight-to-series CBS drama Extant from Steven Spielberg’s Amblin TV and CBS TV Studios. The series that will most likely air in 2014 will follow an astronaut (Berry) returning from a year-long solo space mission who tries to reconnect with her husband and son in their everyday life. Her experiences in space and home lead to events that ultimately change the course of human history.
