Two Join 'Matadors' Pilot

ABC logoIt looks like we're going to have another legal drama on TV, but at least this one looks like it might have a twist to it. ABC has cast the two lead roles for 'Matadors,' about two battling families who also happen to be filled with attorneys. One family has a private practice while the other works for the state. The Hollywood Reporter describes it as a "Romeo and Juliet-style drama" because the two lovebirds come from each of those battling families.

Michelle Borth, who currently co-stars on ABC's 'The Forgotten' (though I'm guessing not for long) will play Juliana, while Zach Gilford will play Alex, the guy who Juliana will fall in love with. The woman's name is Juliana? Well, at least they didn't name the man's character Roman or something like that.

Gilford plays Matt on 'Friday Night Lights.' He's not a regular anymore but did make appearances this season.

Amy Smart Scrubs in for CBS Medical Drama

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."
