Andrew Rannells is returning to HBO's Girls for multiple episodes of its third season. He plays Elijah, Hannah's (Lena Dunham) gay ex-boyfriend and has appeared in eight episodes during the first two season. He is also poised to become a series regular should the series be picked up for a fourth season.

Emmy and Tony winner John Larroquette has landed a recurring role on FOX's Almost Human. He will play Nigel, a genius roboticist who is sympathetic, highly intelligent and a bit broken.

Lilah Richcreek (2 Broke Girls) has joined the ABC Family comedy pilot Work Mom as a series regular. Additionally, Doug Savant (Desperate Housewives) has been cast as a guest star. Richcreek will play the beautiful, aggressively confident and bitchy Rihanna, who is convinced she should be promoted and tries to spin every moment in her own favor. Savant will play Thomas, a widower who operates with a brusque manner and a trademark scowl and is raising his son Ashton to take over the company.

Jordana Spiro (My Boys, The Mob Doctor) has been cast in a potentially recurring role on CBS' The Good Wife. She will play Jenna, a tough, funny and smart police detective who's not opposed to mixing business with pleasure and sometimes crosses professional boundaries to gather information, but other times she's merely in pursuit of a good time. She will debut in the December 1 episode - which is also the series' 100th episode.

Justin Kirk (Weeds), Andrew Dice Clay (Entourage) and William Sadler (The Shawshank Redemption) will guest on an upcoming episode of NBC's The Blacklist.

Sadler will play Sam, a man from Liz's (Megan Boone) past who is gravely ill and reaches out to Liz.

Morris Chestnut (V, Nurse Jackie) has joined the cast of TNT's new drama Legends as a series regular. He will play Antonio "Tony" Cimarro, a quick-witted FBI deep cover operative who's an extremely smart guy with an even smarter mouth and a natural born talent for assuming "legends."

Arrested Development creator Mitch Hurwitz will pop up on an upcoming episode of NBC's Community. He will play Preston Koogler, Greendale Community College's ultimate party animal who butts heads with any authority figure who stands in his way.
