Emmerich is an FBI neighbor of KGB spies, Jason O'Mara is the Las Vegas Sheriff's little brother in the 60s, and Kathy Bates is Charlie Sheen somehow.
There is also Stepfanie Kramer, whose first name I still have trouble with, who will be making the jump from a detective to an attorney and mother of a victim on CSI.

Charlie will be coming back to Two and a Half Men, but probably not in the way you expected. THR reports that CBS has booked Kathy Bates to guest star as the ghost of Charlie Harper, Sheen's old and now dead character. In the April 30th episode of the show Jon Cryer's character Alan has a minor heart attack. All that is known right now is that Charlie Harper will be making a bedside visit in a ghostly form.
