Lewis And Clark (HBO)

Brendan Fletcher (Gracepoint), James Cutler (Kick- Ass 2), Rob Aramayo, Devin Harjes (Daredevil, Gotham), Tim Plester, Tyson Ritter, and David Wilmot have been cast as members of the Corps of Discovery, the expeditionary group led by Meriwether Lewis and William Clark, played by Casey Affleck and Matthias Schoenaerts, respectively.

The HBO miniseries follows the epic journey of the Corps of Discovery and its captains, Lewis (Affleck) and Clark (Schoenaerts), who traverse uncharted territory on a mission to deliver President Jefferson’s message of sovereignty as they search for his fabled all-water route to the Pacific.

Josh Stewart (Criminal Minds) and Parker Croft (Once Upon A Time) have been cast…in HBO miniseries Lewis And Clark.

Stewart…will play Ruben Field, a Kentucky woodsman who will assist Lewis and Clark in every aspect of their journey. Croft…is George Shannon, the youngest and greenest member of the expedition.

Shadowhunters (ABC Family)

Alberto Rosende (Blue Bloods) and Emeraude Toubia (Tu Dia Alegre) have joined the cast of Shadowhunters

Rosende will play Simon, Clary Fray’s long-time best friend, whose loyalty and feelings for her are tested as he fights alongside her on an epic journey. Toubia is Isabelle, an exotic-looking, model-beautiful Shadowhunter. A trained fighter who can kick-ass in high-heels, Isabelle’s one weakness is her choice in men – always going for the bad boy.

Masters Of Sex (Showtime)

Heléne Yorke, who recurred heavily on Season 1, is returning for the upcoming third season of the period drama. Yorke plays Jane Martin, the seemingly unassuming hospital secretary who became Virginia Johnson’s (Lizzy Caplan) first major recruit for her sex study with Dr. William Masters (Michael Sheen). Jane went on to star in the video footage for the study, earning the affection of the aspiring filmmaker hired to shoot it, Lester (Kevin Christy).

Ito made judicial and television history with his controversial decision to allow cameras in the courtroom for the OJ Simpson murder trial, turning the proceedings into a TV spectacle.
