Erica Durance Wonder Woman Harry's Law'Smallville' actress Erica Durance will guest star on 'Harry's Law' as Wonder Woman ... sort of.

According to TVLine, Durance will appear in a Season 2 episode of 'Harry's Law' as a "psychologically infirm" woman who thinks she's the DC Comics character. In her Wonder Woman persona, Durance's character seeks revenge on those who commit domestic abuse.

Durance will appear in the 11th episode of 'Harry's Law,' which does not have an airdate yet.

Audiences may recall NBC produced a pilot for a new Wonder Woman series from 'Harry's Law' creator David E. Kelley. The pilot never made it to series.

No word on whether Durance will don the iconic ensemble.

James WolkJames Wolk has joined the cast of 'Shameless.' That sound you hear? It's every TV critic falling off their chair.

Wolk will play Adam, an investment executive who forms a connection with Emmy Rossum's character, Fiona. He'll appear in multiple episodes during Season 2 Showtime dramedy.

Viewers may remember Wolk as the star of the short-lived and critically acclaimed 'Lone Star.' Fox canceled the drama about a man living a double life after two low-rated episodes, despite the critical acclaim.

Lone Star, James Wolk, Adrianne Palicki, Eloise MumfordFinally, the critically lauded stars of 'Lone Star' have all found other gigs. Adrianne Palicki was cast yesterday in David E. Kelley's 'Wonder Woman' reboot, and now the other two leads have booked pilots of their own.

The charming James Wolk will play young speechwriter Andrew Pierce in Josh Schwartz and Stephanie Savage's Washington, D.C.–set ABC pilot, 'Georgetown.' According to Vulture, the casting breakdown describes the character as a "handsome, effortlessly charming, sophisticated, brilliant, Yale graduate" and "the youngest presidential speech-writer on record."

Eloise Mumford, who played Wolk's sweetly innocent girlfriend on 'Lone Star,' is the first one cast in the ABC thriller drama 'The River.' She'll star as a "fearless helicopter pilot" searching for a missing TV explorer and his cameraman (who also happens to be her father) in the Amazon, according to Deadline.

David Giuntoli will solve mysteries as the handsome detective lead on NBC's 'Grimm.'

'Lone Star' Series Premiere: Living Two LivesIn order to be a successful con man, you have to be adept at living a double life. But what if you feel like going straight? If you've been living a lie for years, can you suddenly change course and become an honest man? That's the question posed in the premiere of 'Lone Star' (Mon., 9PM ET on Fox).

[Warning: Spoiler alert.]

Bob Allen (James Wolk) is two different people. In the suburban town of Midland, Texas, he's "Robert" -- a grifter who cheats local investors while living with his cute (yet clueless) girlfriend Lindsay (played by Eloise Mumford). Meanwhile, 400 miles away in the big city of Houston, he's "Bob" -- and he's married to Cat Thatcher (Adrianne Palicki), the daughter of an ultra-rich oil magnate. In Houston, he plays the part of the "perfect" husband, although he's also trying scam money from Cat's father Clint (Jon Voight).

'Lone Star'My favorite new fall show boasts sexy stars, drama, intrigue and a pretty amazing cast. Basically, 'Lone Star' is the complete package.

The show's hot new leading man (James Wolk) will get to romance two fabulous ladies (Adrianne Palicki and Eloise Mumford) while he's also working a major con job on an oil magnate (Jon Voight) and trying hard to get out from under his fellow conman dad's (David Keith) thumb. It's soapy, dramatic, suspenseful, heartwarming ... oh, I'm done gushing. I'll let the stars do it for me.

I caught up with the 'Lone Star' cast to get their take on the show and their characters, working with the legendary Jon Voight and being one of the sexiest casts on TV.

'Lone Star' State of Mind - TCA Report

'Lone Star' cast
Though 'Dallas' is long gone, its influence lingers on across network television -- but no new series embodies the spirit of the Ewings quite as pervasively as 'Lone Star,' which creator Kyle Killen reportedly pitched as "'Dallas' without the cheese."

Charismatic James Wolk (who looks like the genetically engineered love-child of Kyle Chandler and George Clooney, good golly!) plays con-man Robert Allen, who is living two separate lives with two separate women in two different cities. In Midland, he lives with naive girlfriend Lindsay (Eloise Mumford) while bilking local investors out of their money, and in Houston, he's married to Cat (Adrianne Palicki) daughter of a wealthy oil magnate (played by Jon Voight). Through it all, his con-man father and mentor John (David Keith) is pulling the strings and trying to draw him into another con.

Highlights from the panel follow after the jump.
