TVLine Items: POI Spies Fringe Alum, Once Princess to Badlands and More

Blair Brown Person of Interest

A Fringe alum is now a Person of Interest.

Blair Brown — who played multiple versions of Nina Sharp on the defunct Fox series — will appear in a February episode of the CBS drama as Emma, an elegant and warm former public school teacher, IGN reports.

Emma was forced into early retirement, but a jury summons brings the promise of some excitement (at least in the form of Reese and Finch) back into her life.

Ready for more of today’s newsy nuggets? Well…

* New Girl has tapped Meaghan Rath (Being Human) to play a love interest for Coach in a Valentine’s Day-themed installment, per The Hollywood Reporter.

* Steven Weber (Chasing Life) will appear in an episode of House of Lies‘ fourth season as a turnaround specialist who attempts to help Marty and the Pod — at least, that’s the initial plan. Season 4 premieres Sunday, Jan. 11, at 10 pm on Showtime.

* Sarah Bolger (Once Upon a Time’s Aurora), Emily Beecham (The Village) and Oliver Stark (Dracula) have joined the cast of AMC’s martial-arts drama Badlands as series regulars. David Dobkin (Friends With Benefits) has also come on board as series director and executive producer.

    Damn, was hoping it was Anna Torv. :/

    • Sookiemannny says:

      You saw the picture was of BLAIR BROWN. Sorry sweetheart but the world doesn’t revolve around Anna Torv. Get over it.

      • Rich Abey says:

        Seriously what your problem with Anna Torv? What people can’t be fans of her & hope that she pops by on their other favorite shows? Looks like u hav something to get over..

  2. ScrubsGuy says:

    Excellent casting for POI. Any Fringe alumni would be very welcomed, especially Lance Reddick.
    My dream get would be Terry O’Quinn. And there better be scenes with Michael Emerson!

  3. abz says:

    I wonder how Sarah Bolger’s new show will affect her presence on OUAT. Since they’re bringing back Maleficent, I was hoping they’d explore her backstory with Aurora and see the show’s twist on it.

  4. kevin says:

    Meaghan Rath is perfect. New Girl is lucky to have her, its gonna be an awesome episode for sure. And this season that show has been funnier than ever. At least in my opinion.

  5. Joey Padron says:

    Happy Blair Brown will be on TV again. It’s great Meaghan Rath will be on New Girl. Happy she’ll be on TV more in new year.

  6. Sookiemannny says:

    It’s like none of the Fringe cast can get a job until ANNA TORV gets one. Anna Torv was not the only actor on Fringe. Got that?

  7. Rich Abey says:

    Oooh…Blair Brown is sure to be a delight on Person of Interest! She always had that element of intrigue about her on Fringe so glad to see her back on my favorite show!
