TVLine Items: Pasdar Pops Up on ABC Family, The Hoff Hangs Well with FX's Sons, and More

Heroes‘ flying man has come back to Earth, with a fatherly role on one of ABC Family’s new series.

Having just this spring (rather awesomely) guest-starred on ABC’s Castle, Adrian Pasdar has now joined the cast of ABC Family’s The Lying Game, which stars As the World Turns alum Alexandra Chando as separated-at-birth twins Emma Becker and Sutton Mercer. Per TVGuide.com, Pasdar will recur on the dark, The Parent Trap-esque drama as the father of Sutton’s BFF. The Lying Game starts Monday, August 15.

    Just a note…the actress in The Lying Game’s name is Alexandra “Chando” ;). I will always remember her as Maddie ATWT.

  2. Sam says:

    I’m sure this has already been pointed out umpteen times, but is ABC Family the new home of “former baby drama” shows? Switched at Birth and now this?

    • K says:

      Haha! I see what you mean. But, knowing Sara Shepherd, who wrote “The Lying Game” book (as well as the Pretty Little Liars series), the show won’t be quite like that. Her style is more about mystery and dark pasts coming back to haunt people. Though I get what you’re saying.

    • Marco says:

      More like ‘Thriller Shows For Girls’ (PLL, Nine Lives Of Chloe King, and now The Lying Game).

  3. Summer says:

    I’m looking forward to it, but at the same time, the premise somewhat reminds me of a tweenified version of Ringer, SMGs new show on the CW.

  4. I loved Adrian Pasdar in heroes. I wonder if he’ll be good but evil sometimes too in The Lying Game.
