The Killing

Tyler Ross, Sterling Beaumon and Levi Meaden have been cast as series regulars on the six-episode fourth and final season of The Killing on Netflix.

Ross will play Cameron Stanton, the black sheep of his wealthy, well-connected family. Beaumon takes on the role of Lincoln Knopf, a deeply troubled boy who wears his anger and instability on his sleeve and Meaden will play AJ Fielding, a charismatic, over-achieving student.


Pitt is playing the character of Mason Verger, an unstable wealthy patient of Dr. Hannibal Lecter (Mads Mikkelsen) who begins a dangerous cat-and-mouse game with the deadly serial killer.

The Mason Verger role will be introduced late in the upcoming second season…this is Mason how we’ve never seen him before (a cast description for the role compared him to the way Andrew Scott played Moriarty on Sherlock).

Isabelle will first appear for a recurring role in the eighth episode of season 2 as a patient of Hannibal Lecter’s, something that in and of itself may debunk Dr. Lecter’s public standing, at least as potentially spoiled by the most recent trailer.In any case, Isabelle’s Margot Verger has been described as beautiful and compelling, while having suffered years of abuse at the hands of her serial-killer twin brother Mason.

Ray Donovan

Hank Azaria and Sherilyn Fenn have signed on for multi-episode arcs on the upcoming second season of Showtime‘s drama series Ray Donovan. Azaria will play James Cochran, the ambitious head honcho of the Los Angeles FBI who becomes a thorn in Ray’s (Liev Schreiber) side, and Fenn will play Cochran’s frumpy wife Holly Cochran.

Fresh off the Boat

Constance Wu is set to star opposite Randall Park in ABC’s single-camera comedy pilot Fresh Off The Boat…It centers on hip-hop-loving Eddie Huang, raised by an immigrant father (Park) who is obsessed with all things American and an immigrant mother (Wu) who is often bewildered by white culture.

Mason Twins

Windell Middlebrooks has booked a series regular role  in NBC‘s comedy pilot Mason Twins...Middlebrook…will play Chance, an unkempt gay man who was Lizzie’s best (and probably only) friend in high school.
