* Sommer has been cast on Good Session, CBS’ prospective comedy about a yet-to-be-cast couple, Joel and Lindsay, who learn a lot about their relationship during a seemingly simple trip to a therapist. Sommer will play Seth, Joel’s best friend from college who now lives in the suburbs with his wife and three kids.

Findlay is relocating to Shondaland for How To Get Away With Murder, ABC’s drama starring Viola Davis as a criminal defense professor who suddenly finds herself caught up in a murder plot. Findlay will play the bad-girl neighbor of law student Wes Gibbins (Alfred Enoch). (Technically, the actress’ casting is in second position to The Carrie Diaries, should the CW drama be renewed for a third season.) Also taking a stab at Murder is Billy Brown (Hostages), as a police detective having an affair with Davis’ character.
