Casting News - May 30, 2017

IFC's Stan Against Evil and NBC's Law & Order: True Crime.

  • Miles Gaston Villanueva (The Young and the Restless, God Looked Away) has been cast on the upcoming anthology series starring Edie Falco. The first season focuses on the infamous case of Lyle (Villanueva) and Erik Menendez (Gus Halper), brothers who were convicted in 1996 of murdering their parents seven years earlier. After a mistrial and deadlocked juries (there was one trial but two separate juries, one for each brother), the brothers were later re-tried and convicted of two counts of first-degree murder and sentenced to life without parole.
  • Denise Boutte, Jeffrey Combs, David Koechner, Steven Ogg and Patty McCormack have booked recurring roles on the comedy's upcoming second season. Boutte will play Lara Bouchard, a local who may know more about the town's demonic creatures than she lets on. Combs will play the Impish Man, a Willard's Mill newcomer who loves nothing more than a good bet. Koechner will play Kenny, Evie's (Janet Varney) incorrigible ex-husband who creates a friendship with Stan (John C. McGinley). Ogg will play Rusty, a cowboy from the past who takes a particular liking to Evie. McCormack will play Priscilla, the knowledgeable owner of an antiques store.
