TVLine Items: Alex Kingston's Gilmore Gig, Bad Guy Is Girlboss Dad and More

River Song has teleported into Gilmore Girls: A Year in the Life.

Doctor Who vet Alex Kingston will appear in Netflix’s revival of the late WB/CW series — but she won’t necessarily be in Stars Hollow.

During a recent fan convention in Miami, Kingston revealed that she plays “a very eccentric character” in multiple installments. The actress — who recurs on Arrow as Dinah Lance — also divulged that she filmed her scenes “on location” and they may have been opposite Alexis Bledel’s Rory.

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

* Breaking Bad and Under the Dome alum Dean Norris will recur in Netflix’s upcoming comedy series Girlboss as the father of Britt Robertson’s character, our sister site Deadline reports.

* WGN America’s Matthew Goode-starring alien drama pilot Roadside Picnic has added W. Earl Brown (Preacher, Deadwood) and Michael Lindall (Guilt) to its cast, per Deadline. The project is based on the famous novel by Soviet/Russian science fiction writers Arkady and Boris Strugatsky.

    Whenever I think of Alex Kingston it’s for her 160 episodes of ER.

    • peter says:

      same here !!! but in every news about her they only mention Dr Who and her less them 20 episodes

      • Whatever says:

        May be it’s because her Doctor Who appearances were more recent than ER? She appears in those conventions due to her role with Doctor Who not ER.
