Brooke Shields and other casting news
Also, Eric Balfour has landed a lead role in the CBS drama, Protect and Serve. I bet you can guess what this one is about. Balfour will play an "intense and emotional" LA cop. It's nice to see Balfour land a leading role. He has done great work in 24 and Conviction. Let's hope this opportunity is a good one and we get to see him on CBS in the fall!
In other casting news, Kevin Daniels and Christopher Thornton have lead roles in the NBC comedy, I'm With Stupid. Jack Davenport and Grant Show will star in CBS' Swingtown, about 1970s married swingers.
