Annie Wersching Cast Timeless

TVLine Items: 24 Alum Gets Timeless, 12 Monkeys Adds BSG Vet and More

Timeless has added someone to the cast who’s used to a ticking clock.

Annie Wersching, who played FBI agent Renee Walker on Fox’s 24, will recur on NBC’s freshman time-travel drama, according to our sister site Deadline. She’ll play Emma Whitmore, a woman hiding out in a cabin in the woods who’s connected to Flynn (Goran Visnjic).

Wersching also had recent roles on The CW’s The Vampire Diaries (as Damon and Stefan’s mom Lily Salvatore), Amazon’s Bosch and CBS’ Extant.

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

* Syfy’s 12 Monkeys has tapped Battlestar Galactica alum James Callis to recur during Season 3 as a time-traveler raised by the Army of the 12 Monkeys who will change everything for Cole and Cassie, reports.

* Comedy Central unveiled its winter programming schedule: Workaholics will debut its seventh and final season on Wednesday, Jan. 11 at 10/9c, with Tosh.0 returning on Feb. 7 and Idiotsitter‘s sophomore season premiering on March 23.

    I hope Timeless gets picked up

    Very happy about Annie Wersching being cast on Timeless in a recurring role. She had an amazing run on 24 (always a huge fan) as Renee Walker.

    James Callis has to be playing The Witness! He’s an awesome actor so this should be about as good as it could possibly be.

      It would seem he has to be, I sort of wish the show would return to its Friday night time slot, Tuesday at 9 is pretty full and at 10 is like a death shot on any network just as a weird phenomenon.

    I love James Callis! He’ll be a great addition to 12 Monkeys. I wonder if he’ll be playing a grown up version of Ramse’s kid or The Witness.
