Jeremy Sisto The Jury

TVLine Items: Jeremy Sisto Joins ABC Drama Pilot, Peyton on Fallon and More

Jeremy Sisto is taking another stab at an ABC anthology series.

On the heels of last fall’s quickly-cancelled Wicked City, the actor has boarded The Jury, ABC’s drama pilot that follows a single murder trial through the eyes of the individual jurors.

Sisto will star opposite The Good Wife‘s Archie Panjabi as Dan, a well-dressed, handsome and professor-like juror who is widely liked by the rest of the group.

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

* Denver Broncos quarterback — and Super Bowl 50 champ — Peyton Manning will appear on The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon on Wednesday, Feb. 10, NBC announced Tuesday. The episode will also feature Penelope Cruz, Magic Johnson and musical guest Halsey.

* Ellen Pompeo (Grey’s Anatomy), Anthony Anderson (black-ish), Molly Ringwald (Sixteen Candles), Gabourey Sidibe (Empire) and Vanessa Williams (The Good Wife) will lend their voices to Season 4 of Disney Junior’s Doc McStuffins, airing this summer.

    So excited about Peyton Manning as a guest on The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon tomorrow. Would be great if SNL should booked him as host for the second time like he did back in March 2007.

  4. Good lucky Jeremy, you deserve something good!!
