    Ugh, what a coincidence Adrianne Palicki gets cast in her boyfriend’s series. Not a fan of hers at all. I do like DJ Cotrona though, been a fan since he was on FOX’s Skin. Bad enough they were in GI Joe:Retaliation together, now this?! Detroit 1-8-7 was a great show btw but in true ABC fashion it was cancelled to make room for a crappy show (Body Of Proof).

  2. I would have thought she’d play Satanico Pandemonio.

  3. Riana says:

    Can we trade this new guy so Drew Van Acker can come back to Pretty Little Liars? We need Alison and Jason scenes.

  4. Kyle C. says:

    Adrianne Palicki is a stunning, talented actress when she has the right material.

    • wordsmith says:

      Even with bad material, she’s still stunning, which is good, because she’s done more than a few just-for-the-paycheck projects at this point.
      But you’re right – she’s often very good, and I would probably watch her in just about anything.
