Casting Bits: 'PLL' spinoff 'The Perfectionists' completes cast, Gina Philips, Steve Byers to guest in 'Shadowhunters' and more

Casting news alert!

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


The Perfectionists (Freeform)

The PLL spinoff has rounded its cast. The final additions to the cast include:  Sydney Park (The Walking Dead), Kelly Rutherford (Gossip Girl) as well as newcomers Eli Brown and Graeme Thomas King. 

Park as Caitlin

Caitlin is described as smart, driven and thrives under pressure. The perfect daughter of two perfect mothers, Caitlin has set her sights on following in her mother’s Senatorial footsteps.

Brown as Dylan

Dylan, a gifted cellist, grew up feeling judged in his small hometown and now feels the need to be the best in all of his endeavors. He is deeply committed to his two passions, his music and his boyfriend, Andrew.

Rutherford as Claire Hotchkiss

The matriarch of the Hotchkiss family, Claire (along with her husband) is the founder of Hotchkiss Industries and the respected Beacon Heights University. Claire believes perfection is attainable and is the person who pulls the strings behind the scenes to get what she wants.

King as Jeremy

The English actor will play Jeremy, a brilliant young scientist who works at Beacon Heights’ prestigious Hotchkiss Technologies, and is hiding a shocking secret. While currently a pilot, The Perfectionists is fully expected to go to series, as PLL was Freeform's flagship brand.

Hayley Erin (General Hospital) also joins the cast in a mysterious, unnamed role.   



Missy Peregrym and Ebonee Noel have joined Dick Wolf's upcoming new drama. 

Peregrym will play the female lead, FBI Special Agent Maggie Bell. Maggie is an agent who, her bosses and peers agree, is marked for success. Born into a multigenerational law enforcement family in the Midwest, Maggie has developed a sophisticated skill set: high emotional IQ, intellectual rigor, bracing candor. She engages immediately, commits deeply, to the people she works with and is protecting. Maggie came to New York with conviction – and is working incredibly hard not to let a recent personal tragedy derail her new life, personally or professionally.

Noel will play an analyst who’s recruited straight out of university, and even though she doesn’t carry a gun, she hardly could be more valued. Whip smart, opinionated, with an incredible capacity to grind, she is broadly educated, deeply analytical – basically, the resource the FBI is always searching for. She pieces together the big picture faster than anyone, and loves to tell you about it.
