This week’s casting couch features the following actors and actresses who will appear in episodes of some fan favorites and one red-hot series, from earlier this year that will finally be back in the spring:
Actress Frances Fisher will guest star in a 2014 episode of Castle that will be very Devil Wears Prada-esque. She will play Matilda King, a fashion mogul who runs this magazine, Modern Fashion, who crossed paths with Beckett when she briefly flirted with a career as a model. Castle will be back after its holiday hiatus on ABC on January 6.
Actress Gail O’Grady (NYPD Blue) will appear in Revenge as the ex-wife of Conrad Grayson (series regular Henry Czerny). Divorced from Conrad, who left her for Victoria, for over 25 years, O’Grady’s character will be “West Coast posh” paying a surprise (and very unexpected) visit to her former hubby. Also, actor Brett Cullen (Devious Maids and Friday Night Lights) will have a recurring role in the show, playing Jimmy, the biological father of Victoria’s (series lead Madeleine Stowe) love child Patrick (Justin Hartley). The fall finale of Revenge will air on ABC on December 15.
Actor Patrick J. Adams (Suits) will make a guest appearance on the acclaimed series Orphan Black [he has been a vocal fan of the show via Twitter], playing a character named Jesse, who lands in a ton of trouble when the clone characters (played by lead star Tatiana Maslany) enter his life. Orphan Black will be back for its second season on April 14 on BBC America.
Actor Robert Knepper (Prison Break, Heroes and Cult) will play the “plum role” of master criminal William Tockman aka “Clock King” on Arrow. He will appear in the same episode that finds actress Alex Kingston (ER and Doctor Who) returning to Starling City. The fall finale of Arrow just aired this past Wednesday and it will return to The CW on January 15.
Actor Eddie Matos (All My Children and General Hospital) will have a recurring role on Hart of Dixie, playing Enrique, the gorgeous Latino driver for Grandma Bettie Breeland (Maree Cheatham), who is saving money to attend poetry school. Hart of Dixie will be back from its holiday hiatus on January 13 on The CW.
