TVLine Items: American Crime Alumni Return, Heroes Reborn Teaser and More

Elvis Nolasco Richard Cabral American Crime

American Crime is continuing to flesh out its Season 2 cast — and it looks a lot like that of Season 1.

Elvis Nolasco and Richard Cabral — who played Carter Nix and Hector Tonz, respectively, in the ABC anthology drama’s first season — will be back for its sophomore run.

“After playing individuals on the fringes of the law, Season 2 will offer complete role reversals for both Elvis and Richard,” series creator John Ridley told our sister site Deadline. “Elvis playing a fundamentally good man scapegoated by the system in which he works. Richard as someone who takes it upon himself to stand for the rights of others, even if it means he stands alone.”

Nolasco and Cabral join Season 1 alumni Felicity Huffman, Timothy Hutton and Regina King, all of whom will return for the series’ second season.

    I was really impressed by Elvis in season 1. I’m excited to see him take on another role.

  2. Meghan says:

    Speaking of cancelled series, did NBC ever air the rest of the seasons of Marry Me and About a Boy? I’m correct is thinking they disappeared in the middle of their seasons, right?

    Thanks for posting about The Millers and McCarthys. I just sent an email to TVline to let you know unless it was known @ TVline. I am excited that CBS is bringing the shows back especially on Saturdays since BB takes up most of the week with nothing on Saturdays so this is good. It has its own night of comedy and that is a good thing.

    Really hope that Heroes Reborn is going to “save” NBC’s Thursday night line-up along with Blacklist and Player come September 24th.

    I’m trying to decide if I like that they’re using the same actors in season 2 of “AC” as new characters. Part of me wants all new actors with a whole new story line in a new city since season 1 was so powerful with the finality of what happens to some of the characters. It was stunning, actually. The other part of me is happy that the actors (especially the lesser known ones) are continuing to work and show just how talented they really are. It will be interesting either way. I’m just really glad it’s coming back.

    Any word on the unaired episodes of About a Boy?
