Cary Elwes, Billy Crystal, Wallace Shawn, Chris Sarandon, Robin Wright and Carol Kane got together for a 'Princess Bride' reunion that aired Friday on 'Good Morning America' (weekdays, 9AM ET on ABC). The cast reminisced about the '80s cult comedy classic, told some funny stories about their late friend and co-star Andre the Giant, and re-lived the experience of shooting the film.

Billy Crystal explained what he thought was the secret to 'The Princess Bride's' enduring appeal. "Great screenplay, it was the perfect cast, the perfect director, it's the perfect movie for us. For me, I'm so proud to be in it with everybody," Crystal said, as they all joined hands.

Cary ElwesThe 'Wonder Woman' cast has added yet another awesome actor to its ranks: Carey Elwes, otherwise known as Westley from 'The Princess Bride.'

He'll play Henry Detmer, the acting CEO of Themyscira Industries and an uncle-like figure to Adrianne Palicki's Diana Prince who could potentially turn into a love interest, according to Deadline.

Meanwhile, TV Line reports that Becki Newton, one of pilot season's most sought-after stars, has signed on for the Fox comedy pilot formerly known as 'Home Grown.' The casting is in second position to her as-yet-unaired NBC series, 'Love Bites.'

Jim Cavizel, also known as Mel Gibson's Jesus in 'The Passion of the Christ,' has booked the leading role in the J.J. Abrams/Jonah Nolan pilot 'Person of Interest,' according to Vulture. He joins the already-cast Taraji P. Henson and Michael Emerson.

'Greek' alum Scott Michael Foster is getting around. The actor, who recently booked an arc on 'Parenthood,' will appear on ABC Family's 'Melissa & Joey' for three episodes as a potential love interest for Melissa Joan Hart. [TV Line]

NBC's Don Johnson pilot, 'A Mann's World,' has cast another actress. Caitlin Crosby joins Taylor Kinney and Kelly Hu in the series about a fiftysomething Beverly Hills hairdresser. [THR]

Despite two of the 'Off the Map' leads booking roles in an NBC pilot, one of their costars says the show has a 50/50 chance of coming back for a second season. "Five percent of the shows are out-of-the-box hits, 5 percent are canceled on arrival, and 90 percent of shows, which is where we are, ride the bubble. And it's all on how the fans respond, you know. Like, hit ABC.com," Jason George said. [EW]

Lucas Black, Cary Elwes Join Epix's 'Tough Trade'

by Gary Susman, posted Nov 30th 2009 12:30PM
If you want to get the folks in the heartland to subscribe to your new premium cable channel, what better way than to expose the dark, seamy underbelly of the country music industry?

Okay, we don't see the logic either, but that's what Epix, the month-old premium channel on Verizon FIOS systems, is doing. Two weeks ago, the channel announced a pilot for its backstage-country soap 'Tough Trade,' which will star Sam Shepard as the patriarch of a Nashville music family. Now comes news that the cast is being rounded out by Lucas Black and Cary Elwes (pictured, right).

'Tough Trade,' created by 'Weeds' producers Jenji Kohan and Chris Offutt, centers on the Tuckers, a music-biz clan, described alliteratively by the Hollywood Reporter as "a Nashville music dynasty whose penchant for drink, debauchery and divorce has left it on the verge of bankruptcy." Shepard will play father to Elwes, both of whose characters are respected country music figures. Black will play Elwes' son, a talented guitarist who's avoiding the family business, choosing instead to sell illegal ammunition.

Law & Order SVU: Dependent

(S08E14) Just like last week, this episode took a complete turn a little more than halfway through. I felt pretty unhappy with the ending because, once again, it seemed rushed. An entire murder investigation was wrapped up extremely quickly and then another storyline was opened with Elliot and his wife- all in the last 25 minutes of the show.

The episode started out like any other. A father (Cary Elwes) and his son arrive at his estranged wife's house to find someone inside. The mother is dead, the father gets whacked on the head with a vase and the boy runs for his life. It turns out the family may have the mob after them, but that lead dries up quickly. Then the father remembers seeing his daughter in the house and the investigation quickly turns to her. She was on drugs that made her violent and she had a violent relationship with her mother. The case pretty much seems wrapped up until tests come back to reveal that the urine in the toilet that proved the daughter was high on drugs, did not belong to her. It was a man's - probably her boyfriend.
