Casting news alert! Here are the latest cast member additions to your favorite shows we're covering on our site: 


iZombie (CW)

Izabela Vidovic will guest star in the show's upcoming fouth season, the actress has revealed in a recent interview. 

Well, my character’s name is Isobel and I unfortunately can’t really reveal too much because it’s going to ruin the whole storyline. It’s a tricky character, however I’m very excited to be a part of it. I did work with the creator, Rob Thomas, on a pilot a few years ago so this is fun to be working again with him and Dan Etheridge as well.


Suits Spinoff (USA)

Brit actor Simon Kassianides has boarded the cast of the spinoff centering on Gina Torres' character. He's set to first appear in the show's season 7 finale which will serve as a backdoor pilot for the spinoff.
