Casting Bits: 'Homeland' adds Sandrine Holt, Leslie Margherita, Romeo Miller to recur in 'Famous In Love' and More

Casting news alert! Here are the latest additions to new and returning shows we're covering on our site: 


Homeland (Showtime)

Sandrine Holt (House of Cards) and Leslie Margherita have boarded season 7 of the spy drama.

Sandrine Holt, known for her work in Netflix’s “House of Cards,” has joined the upcoming season of the Showtime series in a mystery role. She will appear in at least two episodes with the option for more. The network is keeping all details on her character under wraps, but insiders say her arc is very significant to the story.

Additionally, “Homeland” will also be bringing back Lesli Margherita for a recurring role in Season 7. The actress appeared in one episode last season, playing Sharon, who was a loyal character to Brett O’Keefe (Jake Weber).


Famous In Love (Freeform)

Romeo Miller has boarded season 2 of the Freeform series in a recurring role. 

Miller (formerly known as Lil’ Romeo) will recur as a Hip-Hop/R&B artist named Pablo $$, pronounced “Pablo Money.” He’ll make his first appearance in the second season premiere, written by executive producer Marlene King, titled “The Players.”

Per the network, “Pablo is known for his suggestive and confident anthems and undeniable stage presence. He’s the real deal when it comes to talent: a songwriter, producer and perfectionist and his rise to fame was fast and furious.”


Law & Order SVU (NBC)

Melora Walters (Big Love) and Joanna Going (Kingdom) will guest star in season 19. 

Per THR, the duo will appear in an episode that "breaks from the traditional Law & Order structure and instead plays as one long interview scene between Benson (Mariska Hargitay) and a woman who believes she was raped."

Walters plays the suspected victim, Laurel Linwood, who knows she was raped but can't remember what happened the night before. As the trauma recedes and details start to emerge, Benson uses every tactic she can think of to get the full story. Going will play Laurel's sister, Leah, who is brought in to help fill in the blanks.

Titled "Something Happened," the episode is set to air Wednesday, Nov. 8.


Blindspot (NBC)

Anthony Lemke will recur in season 3. 

The Dark Matter star will play Victor, a charming and dangerous fixer working for a questionable organization.


Young Sheldon (CBS)

Billy Gardell (Mike & Molly) will guest star in an upcoming episode of the TBBT prequel. 

Gardell will play Herschel Sparks, the chicken-raising neighbor of the Coopers and father of Sheldon’s tormentor, Billy Sparks.
