Ortega/PR PhotosIn what would be her first major TV gig, Andie MacDowell is thisclose to joining the cast of Fox’s best new fall series, Lone Star. Additionally, Rosa Blasi—of Make It or Break It and Strong Medicine fame—has signed on to recur on the Texas-set drama.

MacDowell, whose deal I’m told is 98 percent done, would play the love interest of Jon Voight’s oil tycoon. Blasi, meanwhile, is set for the role of Blake, the Lady Macbeth-esque trophy wife of Mark Deklin’s character, Trammell.

Lone Star revolves around a con man (played by rising star James Wolk) who’s leading a double life. Friday Night Lights‘ Adrianne Palicki plays one of his two wives.

    This is amazing news. I have to admit was not interested in seeing this but now that Andie MacDowell is in I will definately be watching.

    • Gabby

      I agree. Dallas was totally off my radar, but buzz and this casting news has convinced me that this is a must-see pilot, at the very least.

    • Daisy

      Interesting you say that because I think Andi MacDowell is a weak actress and one of the reasons that I would not tune into the show. She single-handedly ruined Four Weddings and a Funeral because she was so weak compared to everyone else. I’m actually kind of bummed about this casting news.

      Crappy show Crappy Cast – can’t waste my time. I will be watching CSI

        Jeff, Lone Star is getting overwhelmingly positive reviews which point out that it’s unlike anything on network TV. CSI on the other hand is just one of very many crime procedurals, there’s nothing fresh about it nor does it have the character development to rise above average.

  • Brad

    Fox is trying to put another show behind House. They should just give up.

    • Jersey Jeff

      House should be canceled, it is over.

  • Kris

    I seriously so excited for this show. It’s the only new show I REALLY want to see. Adrienne Palicki is just can’t miss TV.

  • Phil

    Ok, does Michael just either NOT like this new show or just these actresses, cause those pictures are AWFUL & not so flattering…..

  • Bigref

    Another great reason to watch!

  • Maga

    This show sounded good, until I read Rosa Blasi is going to be in it.

  • Mayra

    Got me on Adrianne Palicki. Now I have to watch!!

  • clr

    Jon Voight ruins it. Who wants to see another Dallas anyway, although I do like Andie McDowell.

  • Sorry

    I am not one to past negative comments, but Andie McDowell is my least favorite actress ever!!! Cannot stand her acting, no offence to her personally.

    • Daisy

      I totally agree with you. She’s lovely, but she’s not a very good actor (at least she wasn’t in the past).

    • Jess

      Andie McDowell has done “acting”? News to me.

  • JRose38

    I don’t know who Rosa Blasi is, but it looks like she’s had a nose job, chin implants, and a horrible face lift. Perhaps nature just made her that way, but I think she paid someone to mess her up like that.

    • JRose38

      I meant cheek implants.

  • Suz

    Andie McDowell can’t act her way out of a paper bag. She’ll ruin the show, which is sad, because I was kind of looking forward to it!

  • jj

    That Rosa Blasi chick looks like a tranny. She’s like a female Eric Balfour in that I cannot figure out how they have managed to get hired. Not attractive, not talented…? Help me out here people. Her face just looks…WEIRD!

  • Luke Nutley

    Finally a show for adults and featuring quality actors. And this is on network TV? Stunning! And the idiot who says that Jon Voight ruins this show – would you prefer pretty boy Chace Crawford cast as the patriarch? LMAO! Say what you will about Andie MacDowell in her rom com roles (never roles that stretch an actress – Meg Ryan anyone?) but she’s damn good when she’s given the material to work with. Sounds like she’ll be getting her beyotch on in this which should be fun. This is one new show I’ll give a whirl.

  • jasonboegh

    Hoooray for Rosa Blasi’s addition to the show. She’s a great actress and I can’t wait to see what she brings to the role… However, boo to Andie MacDowell. She’s an awful actress who brings down every project she’s in. Argh… Hopefully she’s been taking some lessons lately…

  • Jess

    ausiello you got it wrong he has a girlfriend and a wife. love andie macdowell….don’t know the other girl but i can’t wait to see this show
