Jewel Staite Blindspot

TVLine Items: Jewel Staite's Blindspot, Jane Star Is Carmen Sandiego and More

A little bit of serenity is coming to Blindspot.

The NBC drama has tapped Firefly and Serenity vet Jewel Staite to guest-star in the April 26 episode as “a mysterious power broker whose allegiance is unknown to the team,” executive producer Martin Gero tells TVLine.

The role marks a reunion for Staite and Gero, who worked together on The CW’s Canadian import The L.A. Complex. The actress’ other TV credits include The Killing, Stargate: Atlantis and Wonderfalls, as well as episodes of Castle, Legends of Tomorrow, Supernatural and Warehouse 13.

Gero broke the news of Staite’s casting on Instagram:

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

* Jane the Virgin leading lady Gina Rodriguez will provide the voice of Carmen Sandiego for a new animated series in the works at Netflix, Tracking Board reports.

* TNT has opted not to move forward with its pilot order for the TV series adaptation of Let the Right One In, written by Jeff Davis (Teen Wolf), our sister site Deadline reports. The project will be shopped by Tomorrow Studios to other networks.

Comments are monitored, so don’t go off topic, don’t frakkin’ curse and don’t bore us with how much your coworker’s sister-in-law makes per hour. Talk smart about TV!

    hmmm a new carmen animated series huh.

    • clintbrew says:

      i hope they keep the old theme song for the new carmen sandiego cus that was catchy

      • iHeart says:

        they are referring to an ANIMATED series not the game show, the song you are probably thinking of is the game show and that is NOT being rebooted. and unfortunately even though I am a super Carmen fan girl I am against this. because I know what is probably going to end up happening next.

    She was so good in the LA complex! Still miss that show – very underrated

  3. A new Carmen Sandiego show? Someone get Rockapella on the phone!

  4. I hope Blindspot doesn’t make Jewel superfluous or annoying. Besides Mayfair, thats pretty much what they did to Archie and most especially to Trieste.
