Actors in Limbo: Second Position Pilot Role Breakdown

by Chris Harnick, posted Mar 5th 2011 11:00AM
Becki Newton, Martin HendersonWhat do Martin Henderson, Becki Newton, Ryan Hansen and Rachelle Lefevre have in common? Well, they're all actors with pilot roles in second position to their current series gigs.

It's not strange for an actor to a take a pilot role in second position to a ratings-challenged series. However, what's pretty strange is both Lefevre and Henderson currently star in 'Off the Map' and have both been tapped for NBC's 'The Crossing.'

According to Deadline, the post-Civil War drama will see Henderson as Jason, a soldier who treks across the country and winds up in a town that welcomes him as a savior. Lefevre will play a war widow in the Missouri town Henderson's character settles in.

Does NBC know something we don't? Are they just not that into 'The Crossing' or do they just really love 'Off the Map'? We may never know.

Could 'Off the Map' Be Canceled?

by Jean Bentley, posted Mar 1st 2011 6:20PM
Rachelle LefevreOne more sign that ABC's "medical drama in paradise" 'Off the Map' might be hard to find on your TV schedule come fall: star Rachelle Lefevre has signed on for a new pilot.

According to Deadline, Lefevre landed the lead role on NBC's new period drama pilot 'The Crossing.' The actress will play a war widow in a post–Civil War Missouri town, though the casting is in second position to her role on 'Off the Map.' That means, should both shows get picked up for the 2011–2012 season, she's contractually obligated to return to 'Off the Map.'

It's not uncommon for actors on bubble shows -- which 'OTM' most certainly is -- to start making contingency plans. But often the actors turn out to be correct in their worst case scenario predictions.

Zach Gilford Gets Goofy on 'Off the Map' Set (VIDEO)

by Maggie Furlong, posted Feb 16th 2011 11:00AM
Zach Gilford, 'Off the Map'The most nail-biting dramas often have the funniest sets. When long days are filled with take after take of someone dying on the operating table, downtime naturally becomes prank time.

So when I visited the 'Off the Map' set on a particularly busy day -- shooting a scene of the surgical aftermath of a hang-gliding accident, which you'll see at the end of the season -- I wasn't surprised to find the cast giggly, playful and ready to have fun between shots.

But who's the king of the jokes? The funniest when the cameras stop rolling? There's no doubt that man is 'Friday Night Lights' alum Zach Gilford. And as I learned in not one but three of my other cast interviews, he doesn't always wait for the cameras to stop before popping in with some goofball antics.

Check out this adorable behind-the-scenes look at the cast of 'Off the Map' (Wednesdays, 10PM ET on ABC) after the jump.

Outside the Box Interview With 'Off the Map' Stars

'Off the Map' Outside the Box Interview with Rachelle Lefevre, Martin Henderson, Jason George, Valerie Cruz, Zach Gilford, Mamie Gummer and Jonathan CastellanosShooting in Hawaii isn't all fun and games (mostly) for the cast of 'Off the Map,' as we found out when they sat down for our Outside the Box interview show.

Rachelle Lefevre, Martin Henderson, Jason George, Valerie Cruz, Zach Gilford, Mamie Gummer revealed that and Jonathan Castellanos when the script calls for it, they are conscripted to perform their own stunts ranging from swimming in a "disease-infested" river to throwing themselves in front of a moving car ... going 2 miles an hour!

So, reality doesn't much compare to the hardships the characters endure on the show, which features doctors working in the remote jungles of South America. Still, at least one cast member professed to be squeamish about blood, and on a medical drama, blood can't be avoided.

Watch as the cast members talk about stunts and blood, as well as getting used to medical jargon and their off-camera guilty pleasures.

Ask the Stars of 'Off the Map' Your Questions

by Kelly Woo, posted Jan 5th 2011 4:20PM

'Grey's Anatomy' and 'Private Practice' have been blockbuster hits for executive producer Shonda Rhimes, but she isn't stopping there. She has teamed up with creator Jenna Bans for a new series about doctors, 'Off the Map,' which premieres Wed., Jan 12 at 10PM ET on ABC.

Unlike Rhimes' other hits, 'Off the Map' is set in the wild, remote South American jungle. A trio of young, idealistic doctors (all running from their pasts, of course) arrive to work at an understaffed, underfunded clinic.

We're sitting down with the cast -- Zach Gilford, Mamie Gummer, Rachelle Lefevre, Jason George, Martin Henderson, Valerie Cruz and Jonathan Castellanos -- and asking YOUR questionsabout ABC's new hot doc show.

Rachelle Lefevre She was replaced in the 'Twilight' series by Ron Howard's daughter and, now, Rachelle Lefevre will soon appear on the small screen with Meryl Streep's eldest girl. Only in Hollywood, folks.

According to Deadline.com, Lefevre, who played the renegade vampire, Victoria, in the first two 'Twilight' films (and was unceremoniously replaced by Bryce Dallas Howard because of a 10-day scheduling conflict), has signed on to play a doctor in ABC's new medical drama, 'Off the Map.'

Co-starring Mamie Gummer (Streep's kid), Enrique Murciano ('Without a Trace') and Jason George ('Grey's Anatomy), the series focuses on the lives of the staff at an "understaffed, under-stocked medical clinic in South America" that was started by a hot shot American surgeon played by kiwi heartthrob Martin Henderson ('The Ring').
