Casting News - September 13, 2021

FOX's Monarch and Showtime's Super Pumped.

  • Elisabeth Shue has joined the cast of the upcoming limited series starring Joseph Gordon-Levitt, Kyle Chandler and Kerry Bishé. She previously starred for four seasons in CBS' CSI and in the first season of Amazon's The Boys. She currently stars in Netflix's On the Verge, which released its first season last week.
  • She will play Bonnie Kalanick, Travis' (Gordon-Levitt) mother, the one person he can always count on for wisdom and truth.
  • Joshua Sasse will co-star on the upcoming drama starring Susan Sarandon, Anna Friel and Trace Adkins. He previously starred for two seasons in ABC's Galavant and in The CW's one-season dramedy No Tomorrow.
  • He will play Luke Roman, the smart, charming but insecure son of country music legends Dottie (Sarandon) and Albie Roman (Adkins), as well as the CEO of the family's business, Monarch Entertainment. He is close to his sisters Nicky (Friel) and Gigi (Beth Ditto), and is the apple of his mother's eye, but he has a troubled relationship with his father, whose approval he can never get, no matter how hard he tries.
