Mädchen Amick joins My Own Worst Enemy - VIDEO
Some day I should probably type up an official list of the actresses who, by their mere presence, will guarantee I'll watch a series. The fact that I saw every episode of Freddie should serve as proof that Mädchen Amick is on that list. After following that up with Viva Laughlin, I think we can all agree that this latest role has her career moving in the generally upwards direction.
My Own Worst Enemy was already on my short list of new shows to keep an eye on in the fall. It's an interesting premise, has Christian Slater, and the previews look great. The addition of Amick just makes it that much more intriguing. She'll be taking over the role of Henry's wife that was originally played by Yara Martinez (The Unit). It's a bit of rough luck for Martinez. Before this she was set to appear in that ill-fated Spaced remake.
This all comes on the heels of other changes for Enemy. The show's creator, Jason Smilovic (Kidnapped), has made way for John Eisendrath (Alias) to take over as showrunner. The show will premiere in the cushy post-Heroes slot beginning on October 13th. Have a look at the preview, complete with some Yara Martinez footage that isn't long for this world.
