Casting News - September 14, 2016

History's Vikings; NBC's Chicago P.D.; and Netflix's Dear White People.

  • Pretty Little Liars alum Brant Daugherty has been cast in a recurring role on the upcoming comedy from Justin Simien. He will play Thane Lockwood, the star running back on the college football team. He is not the brightest bulb in the scoreboard. He's a bit of an affable goof.
  • The hit drama will return for the next ten episodes of its fourth season on a new day and time - Wednesday, November 30 at 9/8c. In the midseason premiere, Ragnar's (Travis Fimmel) reappearance in Kattegat triggers a chain of events no one - except the Seer - could have ever imagined. He unexpected arrives home to see what has become of his sons and to handle unfinished business in Wessex with King Ecbert (Linus Roache). Meanwhile, Lagertha (Katheryn Winnick) plans a power play in Kattegat and Bjorn (Alexander Ludwig) prepares to fulfill his long-held dream to explore the Mediterranean in a sleek new boat built for him by Floki (Gustaf Skarsgård).
  • Billy Burke (Zoo, Revolution) will appear in an upcoming episode of the drama's fourth season. He will play a legendary retired baseball player who gets caught up in a murder investigation. He will appear in the sixth episode of the season.
