Keri Russell has The Americans on FX. Scott Foley was recently promoted to series regular for the third season of Scandal. With this casting development, all three actors tangled in Felicity’s love triangle now all have regular TV gigs. God, I miss that WB show ;)
Scott Speedman just landed a lead role on Ryan Murphy’s HBO drama pilot, Open. Hopefully, this job lasts longer than his last television project, ABC’s The Last Resort. On the potential HBO show, Speedman will play Jonathan, a handsome sports agent in the drama that explores sexuality. Given that this is a Murphy project, I fully expect a few gratuitous shirtless scenes. Scott joins the cast which includes Wes Bentley as the handsome but arrogant Evan Foster.
Open is Murphy’s second project with HBO. He’s also currently working on an adaptation of Larry Kramer’s Tony-winning play The Normal Heart. The HIV-AIDS film boasts a star-studded cast which includes Matt Bomer, Taylor Kitsch, Jonathan Groff, Jim Parsons and Mark Ruffalo. A premiere date sometime in 2014 is being eyed.
