Casting Bits: Jonathan Sadowski to guest in 'Lethal Weapon', Sandrine Holt to recur in 'Law & Order SVU' and more

Casting news alert!

Here are the latest additions to your favorite scripted shows we're covering in our site: 


The Fix (ABC) 

Abrahm Lim (The Glee Project) will recur on Marcia Clark's upcoming legal drama on ABC.

Lim will play Ares, a smart, slick, high-end media consultant who is brought in by Ezra (Scott Cohen) to consult on the upcoming trial. He replaces Alysia Reiner, who was initially cast as the character Eres. 

 

Bull (CBS)

MacKenzie Meehan (Vinyl) has booked a recurring role in season 3 of the CBS drama as Taylor, the newest member of the Trial Analysis Corporation team. 

Taylor is a former colleague of Marissa's (Geneva Carr) from her time at the Department of Homeland Security. Like Cable (Attanasio), her expertise lies in coding and hacking.

A single mother, Taylor is not a Jason Bull acolyte and views her job with TAC as just that — a job. As such, she's unapologetic about expecting to be able to leave at a set time and have weekends free.

 

 

Dynasty (CW)

Sharon Lawrence (The Ranch) and newcomer Maddison Brown have been added to the show's season 2 cast.

Lawrence will play the role Liam's mother, of Laura Van Kirk (of the New York Van Kirks). She is described as “Liam’s well-bred, erudite mother who is so overpowering and manipulative that she puts Fallon’s mother, Alexis, to shame.”

Brown, meanwhile, will play Anders' daughter Kirby. 

Kirby grew up in the staff’s living quarters with her father, estate manager Joseph Anders, and sides more with the downstairs occupants than the upstairs.

She has a fraught history with the Carringtons, specifically a tempestuous relationship with Fallon that was the reason for Kirby’s exile from the Manor years ago. And while she returns to Atlanta to make amends with her father, she will certainly continue wreaking havoc on the Carringtons.

 

SEAL Team (CBS)

Judd Lormand has been promoted to series regular in season 2 of the military drama. In season 1, he recurred as Lieutenant Commander Eric Blackburn. 

Here's a statement from exec producer John Glenn:

What I love about Judd as an actor is his naturalness, his ease of performance and his ability to disappear into the role.

Judd perfectly captures Blackburn as a compassionate advocate and vital leader for Bravo Team. His skill brings Blackburn into such three-dimensional life that we can’t imagine the show without him.

 

Lethal Weapon (FOX)

Jonathan Sadowski (Young & Hungry) will guest star in season 3 of the cop drama. The actor broke the news of his casting on Instagram.

The Resident (FOX)

Tanc Sade (Gilmore Girls) will guest star in season 2 of the medical drama. 

Sade will guest-star in a Season 2 episode as Josh Robinson, a professional extreme adventure guide whose story takes a highly unexpected turn when he is treated by Dr. Conrad Hawkins (Czuchry) at Chastain Park Memorial Hospital.

 

Instinct (CBS)

Travis Van Winkle (The Last Ship) will recur in season 2 of the CBS drama.

Van Winkle will join the mix as Ryan Stock, a quiet, ex-military police officer from Nebraska. Stock travels to New York City as part of a task force in pursuit of a killer from his home town that he believes to be responsible for a murder in Manhattan.

 

The Code (CBS)

Luke Micthell (Blindspot) has boarded the upcoming drama on a recasting. 

Mitchell will play Capt. John “Abe” Abraham. Operating out of Judge Advocate General Headquarters in Quantico, Abe is a driven prosecutor for whom becoming a Marine is a longstanding family tradition and a responsibility he treats with devotion and passion.

 

Law & Order SVU (NBC)

Sandrine Holt (Homeland) will recur in season 20. 

Per THR, she will play Lisa Abernathy, a clinical psychologist that consults on cases for the Manhattan district attorney's office, 

 

Scream (MTV)

Mary J. Blige has booked a recurring role in the retooled version of season 3. 

Blige will play Sherry Elliot, the mother of lead character Deion Elliot (RJ Cyler), in her first acting role following her Oscar-nominated turn in Mudbound.

 

Magnum P.I. (CBS)

Ken Jeong (Hangover) and Carl Weathers (Rocky) will guest star in the CBS reboot. 

Jeong will join the action as Lee Ji-Won, a local old-school private investigator who plays poker with Magnum (Jay Hernandez). He may be a colorful dude, but apparently, he gives P.I.s a bad wrap.

Weathers will also star as Dan, an old-school Marine who’s struggling to pay his bills as a fisherman. A man of integrity, Dan asks Magnum for help finding a 350-pound tuna he caught that was been stolen. The fish is worth about $350,000, so he’d like it back to help pay off his boat and workers.

 

Star (FOX)

William Levy (Girls Trip) has joined season 3 in a series regular role. 

Levy will play Mateo Ferrera, a driven media mogul who can charm the devil into church. He is rich, successful, smooth as silk and married to his equal, Nina Ferrera, played by Camila Banus (Days Of Our Lives). Mateo makes and breaks his own rules as he sprints toward success. The first generation son of immigrant parents, he is determined to make his mark and build his legacy by any means necessary.
