        Sunday, February 3 - House and Breaking In alum Odette Annable has landed a recurring role on FOX's New Girl.

Irish actress Victoria Smurfit (Bulletproof Monk) has joined the main cast of NBC's 10-episode drama series Dracula. She will play the lithe and beautiful Lady Jayne who is instantly attracted to Alan Grayson/Dracula (Jonathan Rhys Meyers) and pursues him.

Private Practice star Griffin Gluck is the first actor from the recently departed medical drama to land a new role in an upcoming pilot. He joins the cast of ABC's currently untitled Cullen brothers single-camera comedy pilot that already has James Caan attached to star in. Gluck will play the son of lead character Terry - yet to be cast - and the grandson of Caan's character.
