Update: 27th May An update on the previous re-casting news

There has been a change, and one of the two young actors in the Oil pilot earmarked for recasting, Yani Gellman, may continue on the show. A final decision will be made in the next few weeks.


Thanks to Mr. Edmodo for the heads up.
Add Sunday drama Oil to the list of newly picked up ABC/ABC Studios drama series that will be undergoing recasting. Oil, toplned by Don Johnson and Chace Crawford, examines the biggest oil discovery in American history which has triggered a geopolitical shift and an economic boom in North Dakota on a scale not seen since the 1849 California Gold Rush. The series will be recasting two series regular characters played in the pilot by Caitlin Carver and Yani Gellman.

Carver portrayed Lacey Boyd, the younger daughter of Hap (Johnson). Gellman played A.J. Menendez, Hap’s personal driver who leads a triple life: He’s not only Lacey’s clandestine lover, he’s a spy for the reigning family of Saudi Arabia as a member of its royal family. And Lacey’s pillow talk gets passed along to the Middle East as soon as she falls asleep.
