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

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?

  1. Isnt Grace Gummer ‘Emily Owens MD’?

  2. DarkEmy says:

    Die Jill Die! XD
    (no offence to the fans/actress meant)

  3. Mark says:

    Levy would be great. Yes please.

  4. Martin says:

    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.

    • Traci says:

      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.

    • Traci says:

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

  5. -MaK- says:

    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…

    • Glee Project Lover says:

      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.

  6. Lorie says:

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

  7. ladyluck527 says:

    What about Adam Rodriguez from CSI Miami for Drew?

  8. even though she has a job Dianna Agron would be perfect for Emma
    No idea for Drew

  9. Glee Project Lover says:

    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

  10. Glee Project Lover says:

    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!!!

  11. ejknight says:

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

    • Glee Project Lover says:

      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.

  12. monica says:

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

  13. MaryAnn says:

    Would love to see William Levy in the role!

  14. 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.

  15. Shaun says:

    Cancel this show again!!

  16. Matt says:

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

  17. Agreed says:

    Adam Rodriguez as Drew. No question.

  18. Michelle Sims says:

    I think Daniel Louis Rivas should play her brother!! He would be perfect!!! You might have seen him on NCIS. :)

  19. sam says:

    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.

  20. Dani says:

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

  21. Mai says:

    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!
