Annable will play Sophie and Greenwood will play Gordy Nance, the powerful head of one of the families. (The L Word‘s Jennifer Beals plays the matriarch of the other clan.)

Annable’s TV credits include HouseBrothers & Sisters and Breaking In. Greenwood has had roles on The River, St. Elsewhere and Knots Landing, among other series.

    I really wanted her to play the mother in the final season of How I Met Your Mother…

    Fine, don’t mention Bruce Greenwood’s greatest television show, Nowhere Man! Yeah, it only lasted one season, but it’s one of the best shows of all time and it’s STILL Greenwood’s best role of his career IMO!

    • Jennifer says:

      That was my thought! I LOVED that show, still miss it! That is still my favorite Greenwood role, every time I’ve ever heard he’s going to be on something, Nowhere Man is the first thing I think of. I can still see him tied to that chair in finale, I think it was finale.

    Nothing against these actors or any others in pilots but perhaps networks would save some money if they didn’t make all these pilots, many of which will be crap. Look for a couple really good ones, if they can

    Does she have any relation to Dave Annable who was also on Brothers & Sisters?
