Casting News - May 2, 2016

ABC's Scandal; Syfy's The Expanse; and TNT's Major Crimes.

  • Covert Affairs alum Christopher Gorham will appear in an upcoming episode of the drama's fifth season. He will play Dax, a sharp, tech-savvy marketer focused on promoting his celebrity clients though the manipulation of social media platforms.
  • In the wake of Kerry Washington's news that she is expecting her second child, ABC has trimmed the show's Season 6 episode order from 22 to 16 episodes. The network has been weighing a number of options with the hit drama's upcoming season - one includes the show being held on the bench until midseason and then run its 16 episodes uninterrupted. The episode order being trimmed is the only thing the network will confirm at this time.
  • Nick E. Tarabay (Spartacus, Person of Interest) has joined the drama's upcoming second season in a major recurring role. He will play Coyter, a former spy now working in the private sector who is approached by Avasarala (Shohreh Aghdashloo) about working undercover for her.
