More pilots, more casting
Jaime Ray Newman has been cast as the lead in the new CW drama pilot I Am Paige Armstrong. Newman plays a congressional aide who decides to run against her crooked boss.
The comedic drama Babylon Fields, about a town where the dead have come back to life, recently added Kathy Baker to the cast. Baker will play a housewife who must contend with her zombie husband, whom she killed with an ax.
Kevin Dunn has been added to the ABC comedy pilot Sam I Am, about a woman (Christina Applegate) suffering from amnesia who must piece her life back together.
Kelly Rutherford has joined the pilot Gossip Girl for CW, based on a series of books for teens. Rutherford will play the mom on the series.
The untitled comedy pilot for the CW from Maggie Friedman has cast Annie Potts as the mother of a woman who is both a life coach and a witch.
Over on NBC, Peter Keleghan has been added to the comedy pilot Business Class along with Horatio Sanz and Mark Valley. Keleghan will narrate the episodes.
The untitled comedy pilot from Jon Feldman for ABC about a group of CEO friends has cast Amy Sloan as the wife of one of the businessmen, played by Joshua Malina.
Scott Silveri's untitled comedy pilot for CBS recently added Leslie Grossman. The series is about a group of people who stay up all night. There's no word yet on whether these people are vampires or meth users, or something else entirely. I will say that a comedy about vampires on crank would be really funny, though.
