Casting News - January 24, 2022

AppleTV+'s Hello Tomorrow!; CBS' FBI: Most Wanted; Disney+'s The Mighty Ducks: Game Changers; and Spectrum's George & Tammy.

  • Kelly McCormack and Katy Mixon will co-star on the upcoming limited series starring Jessica Chastain, Michael Shannon and Steve Zahn. McCormack previously starred in the second season of Peacock's Departure and recurred on Syfy's Killjoys. She next stars in Amazon's upcoming comedy A League of Their Own. Mixon previously starred for six seasons in CBS' Mike & Molly and five seasons in ABC's American Housewife. She next stars in NBC's upcoming limited series The Thing About Pam.
  • McCormack will play Sheila Richey, George Richey's (Zahn) former wife and one-time friend and confidante of Tammy Wynette (Chastain).
  • Mixon will play Jan Smith, a makeup and hair artist who works with George Jones (Shannon) and Wynette, and becomes one of her close friends.
  • Dagmara Dominczyk has booked a recurring role on the upcoming drama starring Billy Crudup. She currently stars in HBO's Succession, which has been renewed for a fourth season. She can also be seen in the Netflix film The Lost Daughter. She next stars in HBO's upcoming limited series We Own This City.
  • She will play Elle, the widow of Vistaville's richest man with a rapacious zeal for unethical, high-profit business, an unsettling potential partner or rival for Jack (Crudup) and the rest of the Brigthside team.
  • Josh Duhamel will play the new male lead opposite Lauren Graham in the comedy's upcoming second season. He previously starred for five seasons in NBC's Las Vegas, in the USA limited series Unsolved and in Netflix's one-season drama Jupiter's Legacy. He next stars in NBC's upcoming limited series The Thing About Pam.
  • He will play Gavin Cole, a NHL player-turned-coach. Inspirational, charming and hardcore, he is big on the hockey metaphor that applies to life. He runs the super-intense summer hockey institute where The Mighty Ducks land in the new season.
  • Duhamel essentially replaces Emilio Estevez, who reprised his role as Gordon Bombay from the film franchise in the comedy's first season. It was previously reported that Estevez wouldn't be brought back for the new season. Estevez and his representatives assert his exit came from a contract dispute and creative differences. However, various media outlets have reported the production's vaccination requirements also played a role in the departure.
  • Dylan McDermott has joined the cast of the drama's third season. His casting expands his relationship with executive producer Dick Wolf as he is currently starring in NBC's Law & Order: Organized Crime. He also received Emmy Award nominations in 1999 for his lead role in ABC's The Practice and in 2020 for his supporting performance in Netflix's Hollywood.
  • No details were immediately announced about the character he will be playing. However, he will fill the void being left by the departure of series lead Julian McMahon - who has led the drama for its first three seasons but is leaving in an early March episode to pursue new creative opportunities.
