TV Show News


Scott Glenn Sucker Punch

The Flash, Agent Carter, Daredevil, and other TV productions have made recent TV show casting, TV movie casting, and TV directing news. These shows and movies air on The CW, ABC, and Netflix.

The Flash (The CW)

Amanda Pays, who used to play Barry Allen’s potential love interest Dr. Tina McGee [in the 1990’s version], will make her way onto The CW’s The Flash as the same character she played before. Although, she most likely won’t be a love interest for Grant Gustin’s Barry Allen.

Unlike her comic book counterpart, who was first introduced in 1987, Dr. Tina McGee will not work for S.T.A.R. Labs…McGee will be a geneticist who works for a tech company that rivals them.

Agent Carter (ABC)

James D’Arcy (Let’s Be Cops, Cloud Atlas) will join the cast of ABC’s Agent Carter as the butler of Howard Stark (Dominic Cooper) and ally to Agent Peggy Carter (Hayley Atwell). Further reports…confirm that D’Arcy will specifically play the butler Edwin Jarvis.

The character of Jarvis, who first appeared in 1964’s Tales of Suspense #59, has been heavily featured in Marvel’s Iron Man comics as the butler to Tony Stark and his father’s butler before him…The inclusion of Edwin Jarvis in Agent Carter implies that there was a Jarvis before J.A.R.V.I.S. and Tony Stark may have based his A.I. on him.

Daredevil (Netflix)

The latest addition is Scott Glenn, who will be playing the character Stick.

In the comics, Stick is the mentor of Matt Murdock. He acts as a guide when Murdock becomes the superhero Daredevil and teaches him martial arts.

Point of Honor (Amazon)

Nathan Parsons is set as the lead in Point Of Honor, Amazon’s Civil War family drama pilot from Carlton Cuse and Randall Wallace. Luke Benward (Ravenswood) co-stars in the project, which centers on best friends and brothers-in-law, John Rodes (Parsons) and Robert Sumner, who find themselves on opposite sides of the conflict. Benward…plays Garland Rhodes, the dashing black sheep brother of the Rhodes family.

Problem Child (NBC)

Scot Armstrong…is taking on the 1990 PG comedy Problem Child…a single-camera comedy adaptation of the Universal Pictures/Imagine feature that starred John Ritter and Amy Yasbeck as a couple conned into adopting a troubled 7-year-boy who wreaks havoc in their lives and leaves a path of destruction anywhere he goes.

Armstrong will be translating the movie franchise into a series

Eye Candy (MTV)

Casey Deidrick (Days Of Our Lives), John Garet Stoker and Kiersey Clemons (Austin & Ally) are set to co-star opposite Victoria Justice in MTV’s thriller drama series Eye Candy

Written by Emmy Grinwis, Eye Candy stars Justice as tech genius Lindy who begins to suspect that one of her online suitors might be a deadly cyber stalker. When her friends at the cyber-police uncover a potential serial killer in Manhattan, she works with the hackers to solve the murders while unleashing her own style of justice.

Deidrick…plays male lead Tommy, a dry-witted NY native who descends from a long line of cops and works as a detective in the NYPD Cyber Unit. He is skeptical of Lindy’s tactics and motivations, but he ultimately decides to work with her.

Love (Netflix)

Judd Apatow[‘s]…relationship comedy starring Paul Rust (I Love You, Beth Cooper) and Community’s Gillian Jacobs, is getting a big two-season straight-to-series pickup from Netflix. The streaming has ordered a 10-episode first and 12-episode second season of Love, which Apatow co-created and wrote with Rust and Lesley Arfin (Brooklyn Nine-Nine).

Love follows Gus (Rust) and Mickey (Jacobs) as they navigate the exhilaration and humiliations of intimacy, commitment, and other things they were hoping to avoid.

Nurse Jackie (Showtime)

Mark Feuerstein has signed on as a recurring guest star for six episodes of the dramedy’s final season.

Feuerstein will play Barry Wolfe, a high-powered, cutthroat lawyer who will represent Edie Falco’s Jackie as she pieces her life back together following her arrest last season.

Stanistan (USA)

Zach Gilford (Friday Night Lights, The Purge: Anarchy) and Jonathan Cake (Desperate Housewives) have been cast opposite Jennifer Carpenter in USA’s drama pilot Stanistan. Gilford…will play Phillip Guthrey, an Infrastructure Deputy Manager for USAID and close friend of Marcie (Carpenter). Cake…will play Greg Weir, an on-air foreign correspondent who is entangled in a complicated affair with Marcie.
