  • Jack Ryan - John Krasinski Cast in the Lead Role in Amazon Pilot
    EXCLUSIVE: John Krasinski is the next Jack Ryan. The Office alum has closed a deal for the title role in Jack Ryan, the TV series project based on Tom Clancy’s popular CIA hero, which is set at Amazon through Paramount TV. In a competitive situation, the package, which includes the former Lost duo of co-showrunner Carlton Cuse and writer Graham Roland, Michael Bay’s Platinum Dunes and Skydance Media, landed at Amazon with a series commitment and the intention to go straight-to-series. While there is no official green light yet, the casting of Krasinski, who had been highly sought after by TV casting directors, would likely tip the scales and help net a series order. The project reunites Krasinski with Bay who recently directed him in the 13 Hours feature.

    Conceived by Cuse and Roland, a former U.S. marine, based on Clancy’s novels, the show is not a direct adaptation of the books as were the first Jack Ryan movies but a new contemporary take on the character in his prime as a CIA analyst/operative using the novels as source material. Roland executive produces with Cuse and Lindsey Springer of Carlton Cuse Prods. as well as Platinum Dunes’ Bay, Brad Fuller and Andrew Form and the movie franchise’s producer Mace Neufeld.

  • Jean-Claude Van Johnson - Phylicia Rashad, Kat Foster and Moises Arias Join Amazon Pilot
    Amazon is setting the cast for its upcoming Jean-Claude Van Damme comedy series.

    Phylicia Rashad, Kat Foster and Moises Arias have boarded action comedy Jean-Claude Van Johnson, The Hollywood Reporter has learned.

    The series stars Van Damme as a heightened version of himself — an action movie actor who comes out of retirement to resume his alter-ego, undercover private contractor Jean-Claude Johnson. Johnson's cover as the lead role in a re-imagined action film version of Huckleberry Finn lands him right back in the midst of the danger he secretly always craves — but most importantly, back in the orbit of Vanessa, his fellow operative and the woman he loves.

    Foster ('Til Death, Your Family or Mine, Rebirth) will play Vanessa, an international undercover operative whose cover is working as a hair and makeup artist for film shoots. She spent years as his right-hand woman and fell in love with him on their last assignments together. She's now determined to keep him at arm's length when he deliberately gets himself assigned to her new mission in Bulgaria.

    Rashad will take on the role of Jane Hardy, Jean-Claude's agent who doubles as the head of the secret-ops group for which he and Vanessa work. Arias (Hannah Montana, The Kings of Summer) will portray Luis, a young secret agent who works with Vanessa.

  • Chad: An America Boy - Paul Chahidi and Christine Tawfik Join Cast + Production Pushed to May; Remains In Midseason Consideration
    Nasim Pedrad’s Fox comedy pilot Chad: An American Boy will not film in time to be considered for the fall schedule, but will be in the running for midseason.

    Chad — a single-camera Middle Eastern family comedy co-created by and starring the Saturday Night Live alumna and directed by Jason Winer — was a late order, getting the pilot greenlight on February 10. It has been casting the other roles ever since, a process that took awhile. The two adult co-starring roles opposite Pedrad in the pilot have now been filled, with British actor Paul Chahidi and Christine Tawfik landing the parts of Hamid and Naz in the 20th TV-produced pilot, which will shoot in late May, after the upfronts.

    “Because of our commitment to authenticity, we conducted a worldwide casting search for several roles in this pilot which meant that we wouldn’t have been able to get visas in time to shoot within the traditional pilot window,” 20th TV said in a statement.

    Casting a family comedy that represents a specific ethnicity is hard because it involves finding actors that have chemistry, but also look and sound authentic. Nedrad is Iranian American, and Chad, Hamid and Naz were written as Iranian Americans. Chahidi is of Iranian descent while Tawfik was born in Egypt. (Similarly, on 20th TV, successful ABC family comedy Fresh Off the Boat, about a Taiwanese American family, Constance Wu is of Taiwanese descent, Randall Park is Korean American).

    Written by Pedrad & Rob Rosell, Chad centers on a 14-year-old boy (Pedrad), who in the throes of adolescence is tasked with being the man of the house, which leaves him with all the responsibilities of being an adult without any of the perks. Chahidi plays Hamid, Naz’s sweet older cousin. Tawfik plays Naz, the witty long-divorced mom raising her two kids in Delaware with the help of her older cousin, Hamid.

  • My Time/Your Time - Tone Bell Joins Cast as 2 Roles Are Retooled
    Truth Be Told star Tone Bell has been cast opposite Nicholas Braun and Jane Levy in My Time/Your Time, CBS’ hybrid comedy pilot from Hilary Winston and How I Met Your Mother creators Carter Bays and Craig Thomas, which is currently filming.

    The late addition of Bell stems from a last-minute tweak the producers made, combining two supporting series regular characters in the original script — cast with Langston Kerman and Utkarsh Ambudkar — into one new character, played by Bell. As a result of the change, Ambudkar and Kerman are no longer in the pilot.

    Bell is cast as a guest star in My Time/Your Time because he is already a regular on another comedy pilot, NBC’s Good Fortune (though this appears to be a relatively safe second position based on early pilot buzz I’m hearing).

    Ambudkar was to play Jay, Wade’s friend and co-worker who looks like a slacker/surfer dude on the surface but is secretly ambitious. Kerman was to play another friend of Wades, Parker. He and Wade (Braun) were childhood buddies while growing up in the Midwest, and now they’re each other’s closest friend in L.A.

    The Tick reboot, written and executive produced by Edlund, is bringing back the eponymous muscle-bound, antennae-sporting superhero (Serafinowicz). In the new incarnation, the blue-suited Tick is recovering from a memory loss and ends up reteaming with his sidekick Arthur (Griffin Newman) to fight evil.

    Haley will be a major part of that evil, as he will play The Terror, a powerful super villain and the leader of the evil league in the comics.

    The Young & the Restless‘ Sofia Pernas has been cast as a regular opposite Laura Brent in The CW genre-themed drama pilot Transylvania. She replaces Amrita Acharia who was originally cast in the role.

    It’s been a whirlwind 48 hours for Pernas. On Monday, she was let go early from her Young & the Restless contract due to budgetary reasons. Twenty four hours later, she had auditioned, tested, and booked the role in Transylvania, and today, she got on a plane to go to the pilot shoot.

    Written by Hugh Sterbakov and directed by Jason Ensler, Transylvania is set in 1880 and centers on Victoria (Brent), a headstrong young woman in search of her missing father who ventures from NYC to Transylvania where she teams up with a wrongfully disgraced Scotland Yard Detective, and together they witness the births of the most famous monsters and villains in history.

    Pernas will play Coriander, an exotic gypsy, the leader of the matriarchal Szgany clan that runs the fleshpots of the Old City — the haunted spot where Vlad the Impaler once killed thousands of their tribe.

  • Toast - Jerrika Hinton Cast as the Female Lead
    EXCLUSIVE: Grey’s Anatomy co-star Jerrika Hinton has been cast as the female lead opposite Jono Kenyon in Toast, ABC’s hybrid comedy pilot executive produced by Grey’s Anatomy creator Shonda Rhimes. The project hails from Rhimes and Betsy Beers’ Shondaland, Scott Foley and Greg Grunberg.

    Hinton’s casting in Toast will have no immediate impact on her status on Grey’s Anatomy, where she is a regular, playing surgical resident Stephanie Edwards. If Toast goes to series, that will likely be revisited. There are no plans in place but I hear there is a possibility for her to do both shows, likely scaling back her duties on Grey’s for logistical reasons.

    Written by Foley and Grunberg and directed by Gail Mancuso, Toast revolves around engaged couple Max Leeds (Kenyon) and Page (Hinton), who, over their wedding rehearsal dinner, have their eclectic family and friends give toasts recalling anecdotes about the couple — but flashbacks reveal that the toasts don’t always get it right, as we watch the true story of their complicated, funny and relatable road to marriage.

    Hinton’s Page is Max’s confident, no-nonsense, self-aware, soon-to-be bride. She’s spent most of her life working very hard but feeling a bit sheltered by her well-to-do Texas family. In an effort to break the mold, Page finds herself wanting to take a risk with the charismatic but awkward Max.

    In addition to Hinton, Shondaland also recruited Grey’s alumna Tessa Ferrer for a co-starring role in Toasts.

    Joshua Sasse, who plays the title role in ABC’s medieval musical comedy Galavant, is set as the male lead opposite Tori Anderson in the CW pilot No Tomorrow. The project, from CBS Studios, has Sasse in first position.

Brinkerhoff and Silverman executive produce for CBS TV Studios and Electus.

    The underrated Galavant, created by Dan Fogelman with music and lyrics by Alan Menken and Glenn Slater, has developed a cult following but has been softly rated in its limited runs as a midseason replacement. Its second second renewal was hailed as a “miracle” in the self-deprecating opening number of Season 2. Another such miracle is not expected, especially with the ABC Studios-produced show’s chief supporter at ABC, Paul Lee, gone. Still, even if Galavant is to beat the odds and come back, Sasse will only appear in the first episode of the potential third season in a carveout from No Tomorrow. It is hard to imagine Galavant continuing beyond that without Galavant.

  • Kevin Williamson's CW Pilot - Matt Passmore to Replace Bailey Chase
    Kevin Williamson’s paranormal CW pilot is making a major casting change. Satisfaction star Matt Passmore has been tapped as the male lead in the project. He will replace Bailey Chase who was originally cast in the role. The decision was made after the pilot’s table read earlier this week.

    Written by Williamson and directed by David Nutter, the CW pilot is about a young woman (Megan West) who seeks help from a parapsychologist (Passmore) when she begins to experience paranormal phenomena. Passmore’s Clark Patterson is a once-successful parapsychologist who is now just an attraction at local ghost conventions. But when he meets a mysterious young woman, everything begins to change.

    Recastings are unfortunate but inevitable during pilot season when 80+ pilots rush to fill their casts on very tight deadlines. Being recast doesn’t necessarily reflect on the actor who sometimes just turns out not to be the best suited for the role, something that may not become clear until the table read. The CW pilot’s studio, Warner Bros. TV, has a strong relationship with Chase who recently co-starred on its drama series Longmire.
