With talk of resurrections, out-of-body experiences, and hauntings, TNT's "Proof" pilot has piqued our interest so we're continuing to keep an eye on it. Up today is some more casting news in the form of Terminator 2: Judgment Day's Joe Morton.
More than likely, TNT's Kyra Sedgwick-produced "Proof" is more drama than supernatural in nature, but the medical-themed pilot has landed its lead actress so we'll keep passing on the news until we get confirmation one way or the other.
Starring Christopher Egan, Natalie Dormer, Kevin McNally Directed by Alex Graves ABC TV Pilot
British actress Natalie Dormer (aka Anne Boleyn on Showtime's "The Tudors") has joined the rapidly expanding cast of ABC's "Poe" as a character named Celeste.
Two Aussie actors and a Brit have joined the previously announced Leslie Odom, Jr., in ABC's "Poe", which has Alex Graves handling the directorial reins for its first episode.
Casting has begun for ABC's "Poe", and when you're looking to solve heinous crimes dealing with the macabre, who better to bring aboard than a dude from "CSI: Miami"?
It's great to see such a wonderful resurgence in interest in the always amazing macabre author Edgar Allan Poe. With several Poe themed projects in the works, it seems as if the industry just can't get enough of this troubled yet lovable soul.
Though it’s not exactly news, since it was mentioned in the first story we did on the show, Variety included Fox’s “pickup” of JJ Abrams’ new show, “Fringe”, in an article today about recent network acquisitions. The show is about an FBI agent working with an institutionalized scientist when a rash of weird shit starts going down. In layman’s terms.
J.J. Abrams just can’t seem to stop making freaky TV shows, can he? The creator of “Lost” has another new project in the works called “Fringe”, and Sci Fi Wire reports today that “Journeyman” director Alex Graves has been tapped to direct the show’s pilot.
