Casting News - March 9, 2018

ABC's Station 19; CBS' FBI; and Hulu's Catch-22.

  • Christopher Abbott will star opposite George Clooney on the upcoming limited series adaptation of the classic novel. He starred in two seasons of HBO's Girls as well as USA's limited series The Sinner.
  • He will play Yossarian, a man who is in constant struggle with the realities of serving in war and does what he needs to get by and stay alive.
  • Brenda Song will appear in a recurring role on the upcoming drama starring Jaina Lee Ortiz and Jason George. She starred in the Disney Channel sitcoms The Suite Life of Zack & Cody and The Suite Life on Deck. She has recently recurred on ABC's Scandal, FOX's New Girl and NBC's Superstore.
  • Like with most Shondaland shows, all details about the character she is playing are being kept under wraps. However, she will debut on the drama during its second episode.
  • Jeremy Sisto has been cast as a series regular on the upcoming drama starring Zeeko Zaki and Connie Nielsen. His casting reunites him with executive producer Dick Wolf after starring in three seasons of Law & Order. He has also starred in three seasons of ABC's Suburgatory and two seasons of Audience's Ice.
  • He will play the FBI Assistant Special Agent in Charge. He is in the sweet spot of his FBI career: experienced enough to honcho a sophisticated responses and energetic enough to keep his team motivated. His ability to relate and engage easily to subordinates and superiors makes him "good glue" and sets him up as the nerve center of the office. Everybody thinks they know the "real" man, but as open as he is, if you look closely, he takes in much more than he puts out.
