Casting News - Amy Seimetz to Recur on 'Get Shorty'; Aliyah O'Brien and Alice Lee Join 'Take Two'; Plus 1 More Update!

Casting News - March 13, 2018

ABC's Take Two; CBS' FBI; and Epix's Get Shorty.

  • Aliyah O'Brien and Alice Lee have been cast on the upcoming drama starring Rachel Bilson and Eddie Cibrian. O'Brien has had recurring roles on ABC's Rookie Blue, A&E's Bates Motel and Freeform's Beyond. Lee's Broadway credits include Heathers: The Musical, Spring Awakening and Spider-Man: Turn Off the Dark.
  • O'Brien will play Detective Christine Rollins, an experienced investigator and Eddie's (Cibrian) chief contact at the LAPD.
  • Lee will play Monica, Sam's (Bilson) long-suffering assistant. Incredibly competent and loyal, she does her best to stand by her star through the best of times and the worst of times.
  • Amy Seimetz has booked a recurring role on the drama's upcoming second season. She was the co-creator of Starz's anthology series The Girlfriend Experience.
  • She will play Jinny, a mysterious love interest for Miles (Chris O'Dowd) who performs a strange, new-age "crystal ceremony" and could open doors to an elite Hollywood world. The more Miles learns about her, the more he realizes she's not the person she's pretending to be.
  • Ebonée Noel will co-star on the upcoming drama starring Zeeko Zaki, Connie Nielsen and Jeremy Sisto. She starred in ABC's short-lived drama Still Star-Crossed.
  • She will play an analyst who's recruited straight out of university. Even though she doesn't carry a gun, she could hardly be more valued. Whip smart, opinionated, with an incredible capacity to grind, she is broadly educated, deeply analytical - basically, the resource the FBI is always searching for. She pieces together the big picture faster than anyone, and loves to tell you about it.
