'Peter Pan Live!' casts its Wendy and Tiger Lily

Allison Williams‘ Peter Pan finally has a Wendy!

Taylor Louderman, known for her lead role on Broadway’s Bring It On: The Musical, has been cast as Wendy Darling in Peter Pan Live!, NBC’s follow-up to its successful 2013 telecast of The Sound of Music Live with Carrie Underwood. Wendy is, of course, one of the three Darling children, whose mother will be portrayed by Kelli O’Hara.

Along with Louderman, Alanna Saunders has joined the cast as Tiger Lily, the Native American who rules her “islanders” on Neverland before being captured by Captain Hook (and later rescued by Peter Pan). Tiger Lily then becomes an ally of Peter, Wendy, and company in their efforts to take down Hook, whom we know will be played by Christopher Walken. As for Saunders, her stage credits include Gypsy and A Chorus Line.

Peter Pan Live! will air on Thursday, Dec. 4 at 8 p.m. on NBC.

'Justified' adds Sam Elliott and Garret Dillahunt for final season

It doesn’t sound like Justified will go gently into that good night. The FX drama, which premieres its sixth and final season in January, has added Sam Elliott and Garret Dillahunt in recurring roles.

Per the network’s announcement, Elliott will play Markham, a legendary gangster who returns to Kentucky with a private army and plenty of cash, which he earned growing legal weed in Colorado. He wants to win back both his empire and his lost love, Katherine Hale (Mary Steenburgen). He’ll rub up against Deputy U.S. Marshal Raylan Givens (Timothy Olyphant), as well as Boyd (Walton Goggins), who seemed poised to re-enter the world of bank robbing with Hale and Wynn Duffy (Jere Burns) in season 5’s finale. Another wrinkle: Katherine secretly believes Markham is the rat who turned on her husband. READ FULL STORY

Cyber-crime dramas seem to be all the rage this pilot season. The USA Network announced that they have cast Portia Doubleday and Carly Chaikin for the pilot of the hacker drama, Mr. Robot.

The drama will follow the travails of Elliot (Rami Malek), a young and socially inept programmer who feels he can only form connections to people by hacking them, in a digital sense. Elliot traverses a fine line between living his life working at a cyber-security firm and being recruited by underworld companies in order to tear down corporate America.

Doubleday, known for her recent turns in Carrie and Her, will play Angela, a close childhood friend of Elliot’s who works with him at the cyber-security firm. Chaikin, who more recently was a regular on Suburgatory, will play Marlene, a hacker who is especially skilled in creating malware that brings down entire networks.
