Casting News - June 30, 2015

ABC's Fresh Off the Boat; FOX's Minority Report; Starz's Outlander; and USA's Suits.

  • After recurring throughout the first season, Chelsey Crisp has been promoted to series regular for the comedy's upcoming second season. She plays Honey, the Huangs' neighbor and Jessica's (Constance Wu) best friend.
  • Tony winner Frances de la Tour (The History Boys, Harry Potter) has joined the cast of the drama's upcoming second season. She will play Mother Hildegard, an intelligent and commanding Mother Superior.
  • Scrubs alum Aloma Wright has landed a recurring role on the drama's current fifth season. She will play Gretchen Bodkinski, Harvey's (Gabriel Macht) new secretary. She is an experienced legal secretary with more than two decades of experience. Like Donna (Sarah Rafferty), she isn't afraid to tell it like it is, but unlike Donna, she promises to bring a fresh perspective to the firm.
  • Nick Zano (One Big Happy, Happy Endings) has joined the cast of the upcoming drama as a series regular. He will play Arthur, originally designed as a duel role for leading man Stark Sands which is now being split. Arthur is Dash's (Sands) fraternal twin brother who has a hard shell borne of years of difficult experiences in the outside world that Dash avoided. Arthur is confident and self-assured, even Machiavellian in his interaction with the world that once exploited him. He uses his gift to consolidate personal wealth and power in the building of an empire. Stronger together as a complete unit, they help one another from time to time, but in the long run both are bad for each other's business.
