EXCLUSIVE: Amy Smart Cast in Showtime's 'Shameless'

by Maureen Ryan, posted Feb 2nd 2011 2:00PM
'Shameless' already has its share of feisty females, but the Showtime drama is about to get one more.

Amy Smart ('Crank,' 'Smith') will appear in the final two episodes of the show's first season as Jasmine, a new friend of Fiona Gallagher (Emmy Rossum). Fiona is the oldest sibling in the large Gallagher family, which is headed by the frequently inebriated Frank (William H. Macy). Despite taking on much of the responsibility for caring for her siblings, Fiona also has an active social life and her new friend Jasmine wants to be part of it.

Jasmine, according to Showtime, is someone Fiona knows from the neighborhood, but she's older than Fiona (in this recent interview, Rossum said Fiona's around 21). Jasmine has a daughter who is in the same class at school as Fiona's little sister, Debbie.

Amy Smart Scrubs in for CBS Medical Drama

by Michael D. Ayers, posted Feb 16th 2010 11:00AM
CBS is getting smart -- Amy Smart, that is.

According to the Hollywood Reporter, Smart will star in CBS' untitled medical drama from executive producer John Wells ('ER'; 'Southland'). In it, she will play a "tough nurse" who speaks her mind and is romantically involved with another character.

The show follows a group of medics who travel the country to help less-fortunate people in need of medical care.

While Smart's career has mostly been relegated to film -- she's had a long history with both frat comedies ('Road Trip,' 'Varsity Blues') and romantic comedies ('Just Friends,' 'Win a Date With Tad Hamilton!') -- she's had a few roles on the small screen, including a season of 'Felicity' and a four-episode arc on 'Scrubs' as "Tasty Coma Wife."

CBS orders pilots with Amy Smart and Fred Savage

by Allison Waldman, posted Mar 24th 2008 9:41AM
Smart/SavageIt'll be one more time around for a Wonder Years alumna and a Felicity fave. Fred Savage and Amy Smart have both been cast in CBS pilots. For Fred, who for me may have peaked as an actor as Kevin Arnold (although I did love him in Austin Powers in Goldmember playing Number Three -- the guy with the mole on his face), the new project on tap is Single White Millionaire. The sitcom is from the pen of writer Ricky Blitt, one of the Family Guy scribes, so that's a plus. The plot is described as the story of an unassuming, thirtysomething millionaire ready to settle down -- and obviously looking for the right lady to share his life (although I guess he could be looking for a significant other of either gender -- the project line leaves it open).

How Smith would have ended

by Anna Johns, posted Nov 28th 2006 11:01AM
ray liotta; smithAll unaired episodes of Smith are now up on CBS' broadband channel, Innertube. The heist drama was canceled in early October, after only three episodes made air. The remaining four episodes are available on Innertube, but there is also a synopsis of how the story arc would have played out and what would have become of the characters had the show remained on the air. After episode 13, it would've been a hell of a cliffhanger.

I've read the synopses and I'll spoil it for you... after the jump:

Goodbye Smith

Smith
Are you enjoying Smith? Too bad! CBS has decided to shelve it. The Ray Liotta drama has been doing so-so in the ratings, and it looks like CBS doesn't want to take any more chances with it.

There's no official word on the move yet, but expect something official later today. In fact, check out the web site. There are still some links to get to the show's page, but it's gone from both drop down menus!

As I mentioned in my reviews, the show has started to go downhill from an intriguing pilot. Maybe CBS saw something in the upcoming episodes that said, "hey, let's dump this for now and put something else on"?

Update: Yup, it's gone.

Smith: Three

by Bob Sassone, posted Oct 3rd 2006 11:09PM
Smith(S01E03) Three episodes into Smith, and this show has started to come off the rails. It's sort of a mess now. And it's getting tedious and boring, with just too many elements (side plots, characters, etc) the writers have thrown into the mix that ruin the tone set by the stylish, clever, moody pilot.

Anyone else having this reaction to this show?

Smith: Two

by Bob Sassone, posted Sep 26th 2006 11:02PM

Ray Liotta(S01E02) Dear Makers of Smith,

I just watched the second episode of your show, and while I think it's still good, I'm starting to fall out of love with it. Have you ever had that feeling?

Maybe it's not you, it's me. But I'm pretty sure it's you.

Old Christine, Close to Home get renewed

by Anna Johns, posted May 16th 2006 8:42AM
new adventures of old christine; julia louis-dreyfusCongratulations to Julia Louis-Dreyfus! CBS just signed on for a second season of The New Adventures of Old Christine. Maybe now everybody can stop talking about that 'Seinfeld curse' that she parodied on SNL last week. I watch the show and I think it has some funny moments, but it's not great like The Office or My Name is Earl or Scrubs. Doesn't even come close. Also renewed by CBS is Close to Home and renewal of The Unit is still up in the air. The network ordered 13 episodes of The King of Queens (that's still on?) because Kevin James is shooting a movie with Adam Sandler this year.

Also, CBS picked up five new dramas:

Ray Liotta, Virginia Madsen coming to CBS

by Anna Johns, posted Feb 6th 2006 8:02AM
ray liotta smithDespite his career-long hesitation to work in series television, Ray Liotta has signed on to a new crime drama on CBS. Virginia Madsen, who had a stint on Frasier and co-starred in the wine-soaked flick Sideways, has also signed on to the project. The series, called Smith, is a crime drama told from the point of view of a crew of career criminals. Amy Smart and Franky G are also on-board this project.

Liotta may have decided to come to television because of the producer and director on Smith. The producer is John Wells and the director is Christopher Chulack, both of whom Liotta worked with when he had a guest appearance on ER. Wells is an ER producer and Chulack directed Liotta's episode, called Time of Death.

I like the idea of a crime show from the other perspective. Sure, there's The Sopranos on HBO but we haven't seen a new episode forever and they're about to end the series. I'm tired of all the cop and court shows on television. It's time to root for the bad guy!
