Casting News - February 22, 2018

CMT's Nashville; NBC's Chicago P.D. & Trial & Error; and Netflix's Untitled Sabrina Drama.

  • Titus Welliver will appear in an upcoming episode of the drama's fifth season. He currently stars in Amazon's Bosch and has previously recurred on CBS' The Good Wife, ABC's Lost and TNT's The Last Ship.
  • He will play Ronald Booth, a big-time meth dealer recently released from prison. He can slide from chilling charm to fervent rage in an instant. He may be handsome, intense, intelligent, cunning and mercurial, but don't let that fool you - he's capable of anything.
  • Kristin Chenoweth will star in the comedy's upcoming second season. She won an Emmy Award for ABC's Pushing Daisies and a Tony Award for You're a Good Man, Charlie Brown. She recently appeared in the first season of Starz's American Gods.
  • She will play Lavinia Peck-Foster, the first lady of East Peck who is a larger-than-life grand dame - at least in her own mind. She is an eccentric heiress known for her flamboyant outfits, large hats and hairless cat, Fluffy, who has not left the confines of Peck Gardens in ages. She calls on Josh Segal and Associates to defend her after she was found with her husband, Edgar, stuffed into a suitcase in the back of her car.
  • Richard Coyle will co-star on the upcoming drama starring Kiernan Shipka. He starred in the Amazon miniseries The Collection and will next appear in Hulu's Hard Sun.
  • He will play Father Blackwood, the High Priest of the Church of Night and Dean of the Academy of the Unseen Arts. Ruthless and ambitious, Blackwood hides a terrifying dark agenda that will put him in direct conflict with Sabrina (Shipka) and other members of the coven.
  • Mia Maestro and Ronny Cox have booked recurring roles on the drama's sixth and final season. Maestro starred in ABC's Alias and FX's The Strain. Cox is known for his roles on NBC's St. Elsewhere and SciFi's Stargate SG-1.
  • Maestro will play Rosa, a true-believer member of The Movement for Coherent Philosophy who is starting to doubt her involvement in the organization.
  • Cox will play Gideon Claybourne, Deacon's (Charles Esten) father, a recently reformed lifelong alcoholic and crusty, frustrated, would-be musician who tries to repair his relationship with his son.
