Hector Jimenez among latest TV castings

Brian White, Christina Moore also join projects

Hector Jimenez has been cast in Fox's hourlong pilot "The Emancipation of Ernesto," while Brian White has joined TNT's drama pilot "Men of a Certain Age."

Additionally, Christina Moore has come on board the CW's new drama series "90210" as a recurring.

"Emancipation" centers on Ernesto (Wilmer Valderrama), a guileless innocent embarking on an epic quest to find his father amid a Los Angeles landscape polluted with excess. Jimenez ("Nacho Libre") will play Hilario, a pragmatic day laborer who was reared in the same prison as Ernesto.

"Men" explores the bonds of male friendship through the eyes of three college buddies, Joe (Ray Romano), Owen (Andre Braugher) and Terry (Scott Bakula), who are in their 40s.

White ("Moonlight") will play Marcus, a charming salesman at Owen's dad's car dealership who gets promoted to sales manager when Owen is overlooked by his father. He is repped by UTA and Luber Roklin.

On "90210," Moore ("Hot Properties") will play Tracy Bennett, the mother of Naomi Bennett (AnnaLynne McCord). Described as a "Beverly Hills MILF," Tracy shares a past and some secrets with Harry Mills (Rob Estes).

Moore is repped by Gersh and Artistry Management.
