Chicago-based actress Joey Honsa has landed the lead in Lifetime’s drama pilot “Family Practice,” while Jeremy Davies has been tapped for a heavily recurring role on ABC’s “Lost.”
Karin Anglin also has joined “Practice,” while Troy Evans has been added to Comedy Central’s half-hour pilot “Held Up” and Steven Christopher Parker has booked a recurring role on NBC’s “ER.”
“Practice,” from Sony Pictures TV, centers on a woman (Honsa) from South Chicago who becomes entangled personally and professionally with the affluent, Kennedyesque family members of one of the city’s most prestigious law firms, the Kinglares.
Beau Bridges was previously cast as the family’s patriarch, a brilliant, radical, Machiavellian lawyer (HR 8/28). Anglin will play his workaholic daughter who also is an attorney at the firm.
On “Lost,” from ABC Studios, Davies will play one of the freighters. The actor, who most recently appeared in “Rescue Dawn,” recently signed with the Gersh Agency. He additionally is repped by Untitled Entertainment and attorney Karl Austen.
“Held Up,” also from SPT, centers on Ray (Jack Carpenter), a bored bank teller whose life changes dramatically when two teams of crazy robbers — disguised as James Bond, Robin Hood, Batman and the Three Stooges — hold up his branch.
Evans will play Capt. Dan Lutz, a paranoid police captain who is one month away from retirement.
Evans, who recurs on “ER,” is repped by Stone Manners Agency.
On “ER,” from Warner Bros. TV, Parker will play Gordon, a brilliant but nervous and emotionally fragile intern.
Parker, who recently appeared in the feature “Blades of Glory,” next appears in Jason Reitman’s upcoming “Juno and Smother.” He is repped by Brandy Gold at TalentWorks and managed by Cohen Entertainment.
