  • Beth Ditto has been cast as a series regular on the upcoming drama starring Susan Sarandon, Anna Friel and Trace Adkins. She previously starred in Showtime's one-season comedy On Becoming a God in Central Florida. She also fronts the indie rock band Gossip.

Although very close to her sister and heir to the crown Nicolette "Nicky" Roman (Friel), in a family of superstars, Gigi has always felt like a bit of an outcast, in spite of her incredible singing voice.
  • Brian Tee has joined the cast of the upcoming drama starring Nicole Kidman. He currently stars in NBC's Chicago Med, which returns for its seventh season later this month and has already been renewed for an eighth season.
  • He will play Clarke, a devoted husband and father. Married to Margaret (Kidman), he has no desire to exchange his expat lifestyle for American suburbia, until his world is upended and he is faced with an impossible choice.
