Casting News - October 14, 2021

ABC's Maggie; and The CW's 4400 & Superman & Lois.

THE CW's 4400
  • Kausar Mohammed, Wilder Yari and Theo Germaine have landed recurring roles on the upcoming drama starring Joseph David-Jones. Mohammed has previously guest starred on FOX's The Resident, The CW's Black Lightning and CBS' Carol's Second Act. Yari recently appeared on Showtime's The L Word: Generation Q. Germaine starred for two seasons in Netflix's The Politician and one season in Showtime's Work in Progress.
  • Mohammed will play Soraya, a friend of Jharrel's (David-Jones) who works in IT and is one of the people called in to help process the thousands of returnees who descend on Detroit out of nowhere. An acknowledged sci-fi nerd, she herself can't even grasp the bizarre possibilities that might be responsible for the future of all these people.
  • Yari will play Jessica, an agent with the DHS who is all business when she's called in to work on the mystery of the thousands of people who have simply appeared out of the blue in Detroit. She's been romantically involved with Keisha (Ireon Roach), a Detroit parole officer, for six months, and is glad Keisha has also been called in to work on the bizarre situation.
  • Germaine will play Noah, one of the 4400 who mysteriously appeared on Belle Isle. Like Mildred (Autumn Best) and Hayden (Amarr Wooten), he is a teenager who has been separated from family and home (though Noah has been taken from the very recent past). These three bond together to find normal in the chaos and explore their new circumstances.
  • Adam Korson has booked a recurring role on the upcoming comedy starring Rebecca Rittenhouse. He currently stars in Syfy's SurrealEstate, which is awaiting word on its future after recently finishing its first season.
  • He will play Daniel, a sweet and self-deprecating Crossfit dropout who charms Maggie (Rittenhouse) with his witty and thoughtful demeanor. He helps Maggie have fun in the present, despite her constant anxieties about the future.
  • Djouliet Amara is set for a recurring role on the drama's upcoming second season. She is currently recurring on Paramount+'s Guilty Party, which debuted today. She previously guest starred on The CW's Riverdale.
  • She will play a new student at Smallville High whose past is riddled with secrets.
