Casting News - March 1, 2023

The CW's Gotham Knights; and Paramount+'s Bass Reeves & Frasier.

  • Grantham Coleman has been cast as a series regular on the upcoming limited series starring David Oyelowo. He currently appears in the Netflix film Bardo. He previously recurred on Hulu's 11.22.63 and Starz's Power Book III: Raising Kanan.
  • He will play Edwin Jones, an extremely persuasive man who has a clear vision and a promise for the future, to those who will listen.
  • Bebe Neuwirth has officially signed on to reprise her role from Cheers and Frasier on the upcoming spinoff starring Kelsey Grammer. Neuwirth appeared on eight seasons of NBC's Cheers - six as a recurring guest star and two as a series regular. She also recurred throughout the original run of NBC's Frasier. She won two Emmy Awards in 1990 and 1991 for her performance.
  • She plays Lilith Sternin, Frasier's (Grammer) ex-wife and Freddy's (Jack Cutmore-Scott) mother. When they reunite at Freddy's birthday party, Lilith, in classic form, is far from pleased about having to share Freddy now that Frasier is back living in Boston. What begins as a fun party with friends and family, inevitably becomes a Lilith-and-Frasier showdown for the ages.
  • Doug Bradley will appear in an episode of the upcoming drama starring Oscar Morgan and Olivia Rose Keegan. He is best known for playing Pinhead in the Hellraiser film franchise.
  • He will play Joe Chill, one of DC Comics' most infamous villains, who irrevocably changed Gotham when he cruelly gunned down Bruce Wayne's parents. After fifty years of rotting on death row, he is schedule to be executed. But Gotham's notorious "Patron Saint of Bad Guys" is not about to let his secrets die with him.
