Casting News: Christopher Titus, Carrie Ann Moss, Billy Baldwin, more
Carrie-Anne Moss (The Matrix) is set to star in ABC's Suspect. The show is a procedural that will solve crimes by tracking suspects through a lineup. She's joined by Eric Palladino (ER) and Kathleen Munroe (Beautiful People). The ABC track record for procedurals is less than impressive, but the addition of Guy Ritchie (Snatch) as director is intriguing enough to give this one a look.
Billy Baldwin and Peter Krause (Six Feet Under) will star in ABC's Money. Krause plays a lawyer that works for the rich and powerful Darling family. Baldwin plays Senator Patrick Darling, the head of the family, who will no doubt present a conundrum for Krause's idealistic lawyer.
