Mad Men‘s Rich Sommer, The Carrie Diaries‘ Katie Findlay and Dexter‘s Aimee Garcia are among the latest actors to book pilots this winter.
Per our sister site Deadline…
* Sommer has been cast on Good Session, CBS’ prospective comedy about a yet-to-be-cast couple, Joel and Lindsay, who learn a lot about their relationship during a seemingly simple trip to a therapist. Sommer will play Seth, Joel’s best friend from college who now lives in the suburbs with his wife and three kids.
* Findlay is relocating to Shondaland for How To Get Away With Murder, ABC’s drama starring Viola Davis as a criminal defense professor who suddenly finds herself caught up in a murder plot. Findlay will play the bad-girl neighbor of law student Wes Gibbins (Alfred Enoch). (Technically, the actress’ casting is in second position to The Carrie Diaries, should the CW drama be renewed for a third season.) Also taking a stab at Murder is Billy Brown (Hostages), as a police detective having an affair with Davis’ character.
* Last seen nannying for Dexter‘s titular killer, Garcia has joined Red Zone, CBS’ drama pilot about a retired CIA operative named who is forced back into action after a major terrorist attack hits Washington, D.C. Garcia will play Vera Bradley, an intelligent case officer with the CIA’s Counter-Terrorism Department.
