Scooplets on 'Psych,' 'Supernatural,' 'Melrose Place,' and more!

Auseillo-scooplets_l •    Melrose Place: Singer-actress-bombshell Taryn Manning (Sons of Anarchy) will appear in the debut season’s third episode as a singer whose music video is being directed by Jonah. The week before, model-turned-actress Taylor Cole (Summerland) guests as David’s ex-girlfriend.

•    Supernatural: The CW serial thriller is adding the recurring role of Raphael, a mechanic who becomes possessed by one of the most powerful beings in the universe. Speaking of powerful beings, I miss Keri Russell.

Wait, there’s more casting scoop after the jump!

•    Psych: An American Werewolf in London‘s David Naughton has signed on to guest star in the show’s Halloween-themed episode, co-written by leading man James Roday. He’ll play Dr. Ken Tucker (no connection to EW TV critic extraordinaire), a self-serving sociopath with a plan that Shawn and Gus uncover. Psych‘s fourth season begins Aug. 7.

•    Stargate: Universe: Producers are searching for a “name” actress to play the late wife of Robert Carlyle’s Nic Rush. The character will appear via flashback. SGU debuts this fall. Watch a clip here. Or don’t. No sweat off my back.

    Joe Flanigan for Raphael, can you imagine all the fangirl glee if you had Jensen, Jared, Misha and Joe on screen at the same time?! Fan conventions would overload!
    (not gonna watch SGU no matter who they cast…)

    How is the casting info for Supernatural related to Keri Russell? Is it just Rob Benedict as Chuck makes you think of Keri?

  • Bob

    Ralph, two things: Casting breakdowns do not belong to DarkUFO. They actually are the property of Breakdown Services and other casting agencies. So if anyone stole anything, it’s Dark. And secondly – Ausiello is a professional and has better things to do than read fan sites. In other words, he has his own sources.

    So, the Ken Tucker thing is totally on purpose right? He’s always ragging in Psych. Hilarious.

  • Harry

    Raphael IS Keri Russell…maybe?

    Re: Psych — David Naughton will “play Dr. Ken Tucker (no relation to EW TV critic extraordinaire), a self-serving sociopath . . .”
    A self-serving sociopath? Are you *sure* he’s not related to the Real [strike] Silm Shady [/strike] Ken Tucker? [very big evil grin]
    Seriously, the show was mischievous enough to give a domestic, SLA-style terrorist organization the same initials as the Screen Actors Guild last season, so I gotta figure that the doctor is, in fact, named after the Real Ken Tucker. I’m not sure why they wouldn’t have named him Dr. Michael Ausiello. Perhaps legal decided that Tucker is generic enough and Ausiello isn’t?

    Thanks for the Supernatural & Psych info. Two of my favorite shows.

    So, you’re “Supernatural” scoop is an old SN casting call? And you only mention the guy getting possessed (presumably only for a short time since we know who the actor is that’s playing Lucifer – you told us that) and not the ex-drug addict who Sam might strike things up with? AND, you don’t even “scoop” the biggest piece of SN casting news yet – that Ellen (Samantha Ferris) is returning for season five? Wow. Ausiello, can you actually DIG for some casting scoop, please?

  • Katherine

    I am not sure what is going on with Stargate: Universe, but I am amused to see that it apparently stars Mark’s ex from Ugly Betty

  • Wickeddoll

    Heather, he didn’t say who the actor was; are you sure this is the same story? If so, why are your sure?

  • Heather

    Wickeddoll, I was referring to the casting news that Mark Pellegrino will be playing Lucifer on “Supernatural” this season in a heavily recurring capacity. Considering the casting call that was released describes the demon that possess him EXACTLY how they described Lucifer, it’s clear that this Raphael guy isn’t going to stick around for long since Mark Pellegrino’s playing Lucifer. UNLESS, of course, the Raphael casting call is old and “Raphael” is Mark Pellegrino’s body before it get taken over by Lucifer. I don’t know.
