Craig Ferguson has found his next broadcast role: acting.
The former host of CBS' The Late Late Show has been tapped to star in ABC's buzzy comedy pilot The King of 7B, The Hollywood Reporter has learned.
The ensemble comedy, already hailed as one of the season's freshest scripts, centers on Prentiss (Ferguson), an agoraphobic recluse who ventures outside for the first time in 11 years when he spies what could be his soul mate moving into the building across the street.
Following The Flash's lead, CBS' Supergirl is enlisting former Superman and Supergirl.
Dean Cain, who played Clark Kent/Superman on Lois & Clark: The New Adventures of Superman, and Helen Slater, who starred as Kara/Supergirl in 1984 film Supergirl, have joined the cast of the network's DC Comics take starring Melissa Benoist, The Hollywood Reporter has confirmed.
CBS' Supergirl continues to add to its already impressive cast.
The DC Comics take has enlisted Grey's Anatomy alum Chyler Leigh and Homeland vet David Harewood for regular roles, The Hollywood Reporter has learned. Additionally, The Flash and Arrow's Andrew Kreisberg has joined the Greg Berlanti and Ali Adler drama as a writer and executive producer.
Taissa Farmiga is going from one anthology to another.
The American Horror Story favorite has signed a one-year deal on to co-star in ABC's L.A. Crime, The Hollywood Reporter has learned.
The character-driven, true-crime procedural anthology explores sex, politics and popular culture across various noteworthy eras in L.A. history. Season one focuses on two L.A. cops in search for a Bonnie & Clyde-esque serial killing team amid the rock-and-roll, coke-infused revelry of the 1980s Sunset Strip.
