Unfortunately, on the most recent episode, they're not doing too well -- either with the "working together" part, or the "not committing crimes" part.
Cal West attempts a robbery in order to raise money for his dad's legal defense. But he's stopped by his twin brother Logan West. (Both parts are played by Patrick Flueger.) Cal and Logan may be twins, but they're opposites in every possible way. One's clean-cut and responsible; the other, scruffy and impetuous. Soon enough, they get in a physical fight over the attempted burglary. They also bicker about what so many brothers argue about -- which one of them their dad likes best. It's classic sibling rivalry -- with an odd mirror image twist.
In this clip, Heather managed to do just that, despite the fact that a sleazy photographer thought he had the best of her.
Think again, buddy. You're dealing with a scoundrel.
Thieves are usually the bad guys, the people we hate on TV ... but not with 'Scoundrels.'
ABC's new drama centers on a family of thieves, including mom Cheryl, played by Virginia Madsen, and schemer extraordinaire dad Wolf, played by David James Elliott. When Wolf gets thrown in the clink for crimes committed, Cheryl decides it's time for the whole family to quit the business and go legit. Apparently, that's not so easy for any of them. But according to Elliott, they're just a "typical American family ... every family's dysfunctional on a level."
I caught up with the stars to find out more about the show, and to hear how playing bad on TV has affected them in real life. Check it out here ...
There's also some new kids on the block in 'Rookie Blue,' which is basically like 'Grey's Anatomy' with badges and guns instead of scrubs and scalpels. Then we've got a new family of crime with 'Scoundrels,' starring Virginia Madsen and David James Elliott, and the return of James Franco's mysterious (and murderous) 'General Hospital' character Franco.

Well, not so fast. According to Entertainment Weekly, Priestley isn't quite done with small screen stardom just yet, as the 90's heartthrob will be appearing in a multi-episode arc on ABC's upcoming summer dramedy 'Scoundrels.'
Labine will stay on 'Sons of Tucson' if FOX renews it. The new show is called 'True Love' and it's about four friends who live in New York (God, that a really generic description but shows aren't about plots it's about the writing). Everyone must love Labine because he has been offered this role more than once (he turned it down because 'Sons of Tucson' hadn't premiered yet). 'True Love' will also star Jason Biggs and Minka Kelly.
In other casting news, former 'JAG' star David James Elliott has replaced Neal McDonough in the pilot for ABC's 'Scoundrels.' We told you last month about this show, a "dramedy" starring Virginia Madsen as a mom who heads a family of crooks who decides to go straight after her husband is sent to jail. McDonough was going to play the husband but now he's out and Elliott is in.
More casting news after the jump.
The Hollywood Reporter reports that Nicollette Sheridan will costar in the pilot for a new CBS sitcom directed by 'Seinfeld' and 'Borat's' Larry Charles. She'll play the mom of a teen singer who has to battle with her British ex-husband who comes to the States to be with the daughter. Meanwhile, her ex from 'Desperate Housewives,' Neal McDonough, has joined the cast of ABC's 'Scoundrels,' a show we told you about a few weeks ago. He'll play Virginia Madsen's husband, a crook who is sent to jail. Actually, the whole family is filled with crooks but he's the only one sent to jail.
'Scoundrels' is described as a "dramedy." Wow I really hate that word.
'Scoundrels' is based on a New Zealand show, 'Outrageous Fortune,' and Madsen will star as the mother/head of a family of crooks who decides that they all need to go straight after the dad is put in prison. I'm going to assume that things don't go smoothly and their criminal pasts will catch up to them in some way. But this sounds like it could be a fun show, sort of like 'The Riches' and maybe a hint of the USA show 'Cover Me' (which I really liked - it was canceled way too early).
This won't be a permanent series though. Right now it's going to be an eight episode summer show.
More casting news after the jump.
