TVLine Items: Chasing Life Adds Smash Star, Chris Tucker on Netflix and More

Krysta Rodriguez Chasing Life

Another former Smash star is checking into ABC Family’s Chasing Life.

Krysta Rodriguez, who played Ana Vargas in the NBC drama’s second season, is joining the cast of Chasing Life, our sister publication Variety reports, playing Vanessa, a fellow cancer patient who befriends April during her current hospital stay; the actress recently revealed her own breast cancer diagnosis.

Rodriguez’s Smash co-star Andy Mientus, who recently appeared on The CW’s The Flash, also played a cancer patient on Chasing Life.

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

* History on Monday announced the development of Knightfall, a scripted series documenting the “actual events leading up to and following the persecution, downfall and burning at the stake of the Knights Templar on Friday the 13th, 1307” (aka the reason we all find Friday the 13th so spooky).

* Chris Tucker’s first stand-up comedy special, Chris Tucker Live, will premiere July 10 on Netflix.

      Umm, okay. Pretty sure this isn’t posted in the right story.
      I’m also pretty sure I should have not clicked on this as I still haven’t watched the last two episodes of Chasing Life but my love of Krysta Rodriguez pulled me in. :)

      • Tran says:

        EXCUSE ME but who are you talking to? You reply the WRONG PERSON and I really hope that you, WhatGives or anyone else do something stupid because it really HURTS MY FEELINGS and you don’t want to do that to me. When I see one mean reply to me, it HURTS MY FEELINGS and it gets me VERY ANGRY (like the Hulk).
