Casting Scoops! Rebecca Mader's Alphas Bit, JAG Vet's Covert Op, and ABC Family Steps Up

Rebecca Mader is hanging with no ordinary people again, a JAG alum is engaging in Covert Affairs, and a buzzy ABC Family series is “stepping up” its game. Here now, the scoops!

On an upcoming episode of Syfy’s Alphas — which this past Monday gave the cabler its most-watched series debut in two years,with  2.5 million viewers — Lost/No Ordinary Family alum Mader will play “a mysterious Alpha,” a rep for the show cagily tells me. Mader’s airdate is under wraps as well, but I can tell you this: She appears within the first 10, and her character’s ability has to be seen to be believed.

Mader next can be seen on the July 19 episode of USA’s Covert Affairs, playing a flight attendant who helps Auggie when his “getaway” to Istanbul takes a work-related turn.

Speaking of Covert Affairs, David Andrews (aka JAG‘s Maj. Gen. Gordon ‘Biff’ Cresswell) has landed a role in the USA hit’s summer finale, airing August 9. He’ll once again get officious on us, playing a hotheaded and tightly-wound State Department honcho who crosses paths with Joan and the CIA when a defection attempt gets… complicated.

Lastly: ABC Family’s new summer sudser, The Lying Game — which follows recently reunited twins (played by Alexandra Chando) who swap lives for a day, until one mysteriously disappears — doesn’t debut until August 15, but it’s already adding to its cast: TVLine has learned that Step Up 3D‘s leading stud, Rick Malambri, has booked a multi-episode arc as Eduardo, a sexy choreographer at the Royal Ballet Studio in the series’ hometown of Scottsdale. It’s only fitting that Eduardo will become romantically involved with one of his students, but will the lucky lady be Lincoln Heights headturner Alice Greczyn’s Mads, or Kyle XY alum Kirsten Prout’s Char?

  • Great to see the Lovely Maders back on tv :) I gues it’s another night of popcorn and beer watching Covert Affairs and Alphas, at this rate we will both be drunk and one of us wont be able to walk in a straight line and the other wont remember the lines lol.

    The ultimate role for Rebecca Mader though would be Leonard’s British science student girl friend in Big Bang Theory…

    You know it makes sense :)

  • I gotta say I watched the premiere of alphas and I really liked it. It kinda reminded me of heroes. Hopefully it doesn’t lose it’s way and actually stays decent.
    The Lying Game looks like it could be awesome. If it’s anything like PLL I’m looking forward to it.

  • Ok, The Lying Game sounds A LOT like SMG’s (Buffy) new show Ringer. Or am I crazy?
