TVLine Items: Banshee Vet Visits Bull, Katie Cassidy on Whose Line and More

Trieste Kelly Dunn, who played Deputy Siobhan Kelly on Cinemax’s Banshee (and more recently recurred on Blindspot), will be getting some help from Michael Weatherly’s Bull.

On the freshman CBS drama (premiering Tuesday, Sept. 20 at 9/8c), Dunn will guest-star as a commercial airline pilot. After a plane crash, Bull and his trial consultation team aim to overcome subconscious gender bias jurors may have to female pilots they wouldn’t have to male pilots.

Dunn’s previous TV credits also include Believe and Golden Boy.

    They should just declare Katie Cassidy a regular across every show on the CW. She’s close enough already…

    Fox had a late night sketch show?

      That was my first thought also.

    • It was pretty bad. There was one really good sketch in which a choir sang about only tolerating those who shared the same opinions/values of the choir. Otherwise, it was painfully unfunny, which is a shame because female comedians get such a bad rap for not being funny. Considering it was backed by the Lonely Island, it was baffling that the comedic material and execution was so bad.
