Carla Gugino will play a high-powered D.C. lawyer and wife to Tim Robbins’ Secretary of State character in a multi-episode arc on HBO’s The Brink. EW confirmed the news, as first reported by Deadline.
The dark half-hour comedy from Ocean’s Eleven producer Jerry Weintraub focuses on three men in the midst of a geopolitical crisis: the Secretary of State (Robbins), a Foreign Service officer (Jack Black) and a Navy fighter pilot (Pablo Schreiber). They must team up to try to prevent World War III. Thor‘s Jamie Alexander also stars.
The Brink does not have a scheduled premiere date yet, but Gugino can also be seen on Fox’s Wayward Pines, from M. Night Shyamalan, which will air in 2015 as a mid-season replacement.
Mary-Louise Parker hasn’t even appeared on The Blacklist yet—and already she’s getting a love interest.
With Hayley turning into a hybrid in the season one finale, the werewolves of New Orleans are down a key player. Correction: They were down a key player.
EW has confirmed that Devious Maids star Colin Woodell will recur in The Originals second season as Aiden, who’s described as “a badass lieutenant in the reigning New Orleans werewolf pack, loyal to his people first but willing to align with witches if it allows him the power he needs to take down vampires. He’ll do whatever it takes to protect his family, even if that means forming dangerous alliances.” TVLine first reported the news.
When EW spoke with Originals executive producer Julie Plec after the season one finale, she mentioned that the wolves might be in need of a new leader come season two. “There’s a lot of wolves that Klaus was aligned with that were all looking to Hayley as their queen, but now she’s no longer a werewolf, she’s a hybrid, and there’s no love lost there for that species,” Plec said. “So they’re going to be kind of stranded without a leader, and we’re going to have to see who steps in and takes that role of alpha. Will it be Jackson? Will it be Oliver? Will Hayley be able to win her way back? What’s going to solidify these wolves in one group, or now that they’ve won the Quarter, are they going to start in-fighting as well?”
How Aiden fits in will be revealed when he first appears in episode four.
The Originals returns Monday, Oct. 6 at 8 p.m. on The CW.
