TVLine Items: Anne Heche Cops All Rise Arc, Willow Series Casts 3 and More

Anne Heche All Rise

Anne Heche has sashayed from the Dancing With the Stars dance floor into the All Rise courthouse, with a role on the CBS legal drama.

Our sister site Deadline reports that Heche will recur during Season 2 of All Rise as Corrine Cuthbert, a trial attorney who is regularly retained by police unions to defend officers accused of violent crime. Corrine is described as “wicked smart, using humor as a distraction while she verbally destroys anyone who gets in her way.”

Heche’s previous TV acting credits include Chicago P.D., The Brave, Dig (wow, remember that one?), Hung and, of course, Men in Trees. Oh, and we cannot ever forget her dual roles on Another World.

All Rise airs Mondays at 9/8c.
