  • I wonder of if The Asset is going to try and be the new Chuck? I hope not, never been an Ali Larter fan.

    • i would prefer the Asset to be the new Alias. and based on Larter’s performance in Heroes, I think she could pull it off.

  • I saw the title and thought Terry O Quinn was joining Supernatural. I would have loved to see him tangle with the Winchesters.

  • Ali Larter played a great mom in Heroes. Too bad in the end they killed her mom character and added the stereotypical slut character.

  • Very intrigued by The Asset. A blonde Alias is something perfectly acceptable to do!
    And WTF, Carrie Bradshaw has a sister(s)??? When? Where? Really?

  • I hope CBS don’t pick up the Legal Drama, cause the chance for renewal of The Good Wife will go down ;/

  • So does this mean Terry will no longer be on Hawaii 5-0?
    Ugh, all these casting reports and still no news on when Tom Welling will be on my tv again.

  • Boy this’ll teach me to read more carefully and not just skim over things. I read the headline as Terry O’Quinn joining Supernatural. Oh Joy!!! Then I read the article…BUMMER! I’d love for him to join my boys the Winchesters and teach them about fighting monsters the Lost way.
