TV News - 'White Collar,' 'Bad Advice From My Brother,' 'The Fosters' & 'The Strain'

        Monday, June 17 - Annet Mahendru (The Americans) and Mike Dopud (Continuum) will appear in the sixth episode of USA's White Collar's fifth season. Mahendru will play Katya, a talented Russian figure skater who shows Olympic promise. Dopud will play Sergei, a Russian gangster.

Miles Fisher, Mike Castle and Reggie Watts have been cast on the Comedy Central pilot Bad Advice From My Brother from Jordan Pope Roush. The comedy follows the adventures of two brothers - Jason (Fisher), the older, not necessarily wiser brother who has spent most of his post-college life chasing women and the almighty dollar on Wall Street, and Ben (Castle), his younger brother who wants to follow in his footsteps - and their neighbor Reggie (Watts).

Necar Zadegan (The Event, FOX's upcoming Rake) will guest star on an upcoming episode of ABC Family's The Fosters. She will play Gretchen, the sexy and sophisticated ex-girlfriend of Lena Adams (Sherri Saum).

Oscar-nominated actor John Hurt (The Elephant Man, Midnight Express) has been cast on the FX drama pilot The Strain starring Corey Stoll. He will play Professor Abraham Setrakian, a holocaust survivor who immigrated to the U.S. after World War II and now runs a pawn shop in Spanish Harlem. As the outbreak spreads, he may be the only one with answers - if anyone will listen.
