TV News - Zoe Saldana to Topline NBC's 'Rosemary's Baby' Update; 'Game of Thrones' Ups Michiel Huisman to Regular; Plus 5 More Updates!

Additional Updates for:
FOX's Gotham; FX's Sons of Anarchy; Amazon's Alpha House; and Hallmark's Signed, Sealed, Delivered.

Michiel Huisman, who joined HBO's Game of Thrones as a recurring guest star for the upcoming fourth season, is being made a series regular for Season 4, which has not been formally picked up yet. He plays Daario Naharis, Daenerys' (Emilia Clarke) new love interest.

Danny Cannon has been tapped to direct and executive produce the pilot for FOX's high profile drama project Gotham from Warner Bros. Television and writer Bruno Heller - which already has a series commitment.

Drea de Matteo has been promoted to series regular for the upcoming seventh and final season of FX's Sons of Anarchy. She has played Wendy, Jax's (Charlie Hunnam) baby momma for a large portion of the series run.

The first season finale of Amazon's Alpha House - which is set to drop on the online streaming service this Friday (Jan. 10) - will feature cameo appearances by former New York Representative Anthony Weiner, former GOP head Michael Steele and CNN reporters Jeffrey Toobin and Tom Brokaw. Additionally, Bill Murray - who had a memorable appearance in the series premiere - will return as jailed Senator Vernon Smits.

Zoe Saldana (Avatar, Star Trek) has been cast as the lead in NBC's miniseries adaptation of the horror classic Rosemary's Baby. She will play Rosemary - the role played by Mia Farrow in the 1968 film - a young wife and mother-to-be convinced her husband and neighbors have nefarious designs on her unborn child. Saldana will also be listed as co-executive producer on the four hour project.

Emmy winner Valerie Harper (The Mary Tyler Moore Show) will appear in the first two episodes of Hallmark Channel's new drama Signed, Sealed, Delivered. She will play the team's supervisor who will inspire each of them to fulfill their unique purposes as she courageously embraces her own.
