Get More: Casting News

Two familiar faces from Showtime’s fall drama lineup have landed hot new winter gigs.

First up, Homeland stunner Morena Baccarin will drop by The Good Wife this March, playing a high-powered event planner who accuses returning creepster Colin Sweeney (Dylan Baker) of sexual harassment.

Meanwhile, Dexter alum Colin Hanks is set to ditch the gloom and doom(sday killings) for a guest appearance (as himself!) on Happy Endings. The story finds a fictionalized Hanks befriending Dave when the Steak Me Home Tonight truck becomes a Chicago hotspot.

Both casting scoops were first reported by EW.com.

Ready for the rest of today’s casting roundup? Well…

• Former Gossip Girl badboy Sebastian Stan has booked a top-secret guest spot on a spring episode of ABC’s freshman fairy tale Once Upon a Time, TVGuide.com reports.

• Newcomer Lindsey R. Garrett will guest-star this February on a flashback-centric installment of The Vampire Diaries, per TVGuide.com. The fresh face has been cast as Samantha Gilbert, Elena’s distant relative and one of Mystic Falls’ founding family members.

  • Morena Baccarin is terrific in Homeland but each time she’s on I still see the evil queen of the visitors in “V”, especially when she cut her hair short.

  • Awesome news! Morena is great, and now she’s going to be on TGW as well as The Mentalist? An embarrassment of riches, I tell you…
