THE BOOB TUBE: TERRY CREWS Finds THE NEWSROOM, THE OFFICE Hires CLARK DUKE, DAVID TENNANT Investigates BROADCHURCH, And CHRISTINE LAHTI Is Part Of The HAWAII FIVE-O Family
TERRY CREWS Is Going To Beat Up THE NEWSROOM
Terry Crews is probably best known for his role as the Old Spice Extreme Guy and for his part in The Expendables and it's upcoming sequel. Not the type of guy you would expect in an Aaron Sorkin drama. Well forget all that, because it's happening and Crews will be playing a bodyguard and life coach for Jeff Daniels' Will McAvoy. The recurring role will be introduced on July 29th in the sixth episode of the show and will stay on for five episodes. Though I'm hoping with the recent renewal he will also show up in season two. KICK-ASS Actor CLARK DUKE Headed To THE OFFICE
Clark Duke got his start on Greek, the stepped up to Kick-Ass, and now he's settling down to go to The Office. In the ninth season of the show, Duke will have a regular role in what is said to be a sort of mini-reboot. It hasn't been stated yet what his role at Dunder Mifflin will be, but with Rainn Wilson getting a spin-off of his own to star in, Duke may just be the new Dwight. For the next season Mindy Kaling won't be coming back and B.J. Novak won't be a regular, though his character will show up from time to time.
Steve McGarrett Has A Mom In CHRISTINE LAHTI On HAWAII FIVE-O
CBS is giving Hawaii Five-O a third season, and Christine Lahti will be joining the cast as the mother of Alex O'Loughlin's character Steve McGarrett. Doris McGarrett is said to be a mysterious role that is pivotal to the mythology of the show.
DAVID TENNANT Adds BROADCHURCH To His List Of Projects
David Tennant has been lining up projects left and right like he'll never be doing Doctor Who again. Perhaps that's just an exaggeration and he is very hard working. It's now being said that he will star in the eight-part drama Broadchurch along with Olivia Colman and Vicky McClure. The story follows the media frenzy that comes to a small coastal town after a boy is murdered. Tennant has the role of a police detective who is leading the investigation.
