Dallas Scoop: Jordana Brewster's Getting a [Spoiler] in Season 2!

Get More: Casting News, Exclusive

Jordana Brewster DallasThere’s a forecast for rising temperatures on Season 2 of TNT’s Dallas reboot, as the show’s producers are planning to add two scorching series regulars to the cast.

First up is the role of Andres Ramos, the estranged older brother of Jordana Brewster’s Elena (pictured). Andres is described as being in his early-to-mid 30s, Hispanic, sexy and with a “great body.” (Um, this is Dallas, of course he wasn’t going to have a spare tire and chicken legs!)

Known by his close associates as “Drew,” Elena’s bro has a big personality and a little bit of a past: He witnessed his father’s death as a young man and grew up to be a lost, angry, bar-fighting, drug-taking screw-up. After a tour in Iraq, however, Drew got his affairs in order and, according to producers, has “spent the last 10 years bouncing around the world working oil rigs in exotic locales.” He’ll return to Southfork to “to drill the land his father died drilling,” but there’ll still be bitterness bubbling underneath Drew’s stated desire to continue dear old dad’s legacy.

Crazy/Beautiful‘s Jay Hernandez seems like he’d fit the bill, or perhaps fresh off the success of his Dancing With the Stars‘ gig, telenovela star William Levy?

A little less is known about Dallas‘ other newcomer, a tall, willowy blonde in her early 20s named Emma Brown, but she sounds like she might just as easily fit into an Edith Wharton novel as she would a modern-day soap opera. Emma is described as a classic beauty who’s been able to travel throughout Europe since she was a toddler, and was raised by her grandmother to be poised, graceful, and slightly aloof — and to look like a million bucks on horseback.

Emma’s priveleged upbringing has turned her into a complicated young woman. Her completely sheltered existence means she has “difficulty relating to anyone or anything outside that bubble, which gives her an otherworldly quality.” And not surprisingly, she’s more book smart than street smart. Still, while Emma’s father has instilled in her his own distrust of the larger world, and raised her to “feel safest in the ivory tower he’s constructed,” a deeper fascination with forbidden people and places will take hold of her throughout the season, according to a Dallas source.

Emma will make her first appearance in the Season 2 premiere and I could definitely envision Harper’s Island alum Cameron Richardson in the role. Or perhaps, if it means the permanent disappearance of Eileen’s irksome daughter on Smash, Grace Gummer could work for the role?

What do you think? Excited for some new blood in Southfork? Which actors would you like to see in the roles of Drew and Emma? Hit the comments with your thoughts!

  • Levy would be great. Yes please.

  • William Levy would be good, but if his English speaking accent is like it is in Single Ladies he might have to get some dialect lessons, other than that, he’d be perfect.

    • i think William Levy with his sexy good looks and hard a a rock body would fit this part perfectly. His accent is perfect for this role. Heck, he speaks better English than most of us.

    • I agree but he is supposed to be with a spanish accent for this role. he would be perfect.

  • what if this emma girl is annie’s daughter. she burned the photos of her little daughter and the viewer thinks that she’s dead – but maybe she isn’t…

    • I thought the SAME THING as you did, MaK! My initial reaction was that this is casting for Ann’s daughter, considering Harland is becoming a series regular for season 2. It would make total sense for them to allow their relationship to explore this aspect. That’s my guess.

    • while Emma’s father has instilled in her his own distrust of the larger world, and raised her to “feel safest in the ivory tower he’s constructed,”

      that kinda sounds like Harris to me
      & let’s face it it’s a soap if there’s not a direct connection to the families like drew that means there’s a secret connection

    • It is Annie’s daughter. The creator of the show said in the finale post-interview that her daughter’s name is Emma and that they had actually revealed that in the original cut of the finale but they didn’t feel like the reveal was climactic enough so they cut it out.

  • I would never say ‘no’ to William Levy, but how about Kevin Alejandro as another choice?

    Comment by Lorie – August 27, 2012 02:52 PM PDT  Reply To This Post
    • don’t know him but looking at pics his resume
      he has my vote

      Comment by Michael Lee Kirk – August 27, 2012 03:50 PM PDT  Reply To This Post
    • Kevin Alejandro is my favorite suggestion so far. I also thought about Amaury Nolasco from Prison Break.

      I know that actresses often play younger characters, but I can’t picture Cameron Richardson as early 20s, I was thinking maybe Elizabeth Olsen.

    • He’s in a midseason CBS pilot, ‘Baby Big Shot’.

  • What about Adam Rodriguez from CSI Miami for Drew?

    Comment by ladyluck527 – August 27, 2012 02:54 PM PDT  Reply To This Post
    • Yes, Yes, and Yes again!

      Comment by Tera – August 27, 2012 03:22 PM PDT  Reply To This Post
  • even though she has a job Dianna Agron would be perfect for Emma
    No idea for Drew

    Comment by Michael Lee Kirk – August 27, 2012 03:32 PM PDT  Reply To This Post
  • William Levy could TOTALLY get it, so I say YES to this as a casting possibility for Elena’s bro. Him or from CSI: Miami, Adam Rodriguez (if he could play the age they need – he’s unbelieveably HOT). He’s 37, but could play a bit younger I think. Also, Danny Pino or Freddie Prinze, Jr. might would work. Just as long as they are not considering Mario “Cheater” Lopez! Ugh. :P

  • Off subject, but old Susan Flannery (previously on Dallas in the original series’ run, now on Bold and the Beautiful) will be needing a job come December. Wouldn’t it be AWESOME if they wrote a guest appearance for her, or is it just me? LOL. Also, Forget the whole begging Victoria Principal to return. I’d love to see the show bring back Marilee Stone!!!

  • Why would Flannery need a job. Is B&B axed?

    Comment by ejknight – August 27, 2012 04:14 PM PDT  Reply To This Post
    • Oh, sorry, I should have been more clear. B&B is still on, but Susan has decided to leave as of November. Her character will be written off in a very dramatic way, according to the Bell’s, during the month of December. My guess is that, with her leaving and Ronn Moss already having filmed his last episoides (to be aired in September), B&B is on its last legs and will likely end in 2013.

  • Someone call Adam Rodriguez and get him on this show ASAP!

    • NOOOOO!!! William Levy is the one for this role.. someone call his agent please..

      Comment by Traci – August 27, 2012 10:47 PM PDT  Reply To This Post
  • Would love to see William Levy in the role!

  • When I read the headline, I immediately thought “Jordana Brewster gets a [STORYLINE] in season two.” Cause her character has been pretty useless so far.

  • Cancel this show again!!

  • I was hoping it “gets a sandwich”. The woman is way too skinny.

  • Adam Rodriguez as Drew. No question.

    Comment by Agreed – August 29, 2012 06:21 AM PDT  Reply To This Post
  • I think Daniel Louis Rivas should play her brother!! He would be perfect!!! You might have seen him on NCIS. :)

    Comment by Michelle Sims – August 29, 2012 04:33 PM PDT  Reply To This Post
  • I think dianna agron should play emma. I also think that emma is ann’s daughter and that one storyline this season will be about them and rekindling their relationship.

  • William levy for drew!!!! He would be perfect!!!

    Comment by Dani – September 12, 2012 10:45 AM PDT  Reply To This Post
    • please cast William Levy as drew

      Comment by Traci – September 12, 2012 04:04 PM PDT  Reply To This Post
  • I think Jay Hernandez would fit better. He resembles Jordana a lit more than William Levy does. Besides Jay is a total hunk and I’m sure he can hold his own!
