Casting News - June 15, 2017

ABC's Quantico and NBC's Law & Order: True Crime.

  • Pearl Thusi is not returning to the drama for its upcoming third season as a series regular. She joined the cast at the start of the second season as Dayana Mampasi, a driven and disciplined lawyer. The news of her exit comes a day after it was announced Yasmine Al Massri was leaving the series. The departures come as the show is going through a creative reboot for its upcoming (and abbreviated) third season.
  • Sterling Beaumon (The Killing), Molly Hagan (iZombie) and Dominic Flores (The Meddler) have joined the cast of the upcoming anthology starring Edie Falco. Beaumon will play Glenn Stevens, a friend of Lyle's (Miles Gaston Villanueva) from Princeton and a college hockey player. He became Lyle's business partner after the murders, managing the first of a chain of restaurants. Hagan will play Joan Vandermolen, Kitty's older sister, a woman of Midwestern reserve. Flores will play Henry Llano, a cousin of Lyle and Eric (Gus Halper), who is regularly seen interacting with the other family members but was regarded as a loudmouth by the late Jose Menendez.
