Casting News:Ernie Hudson in Reckless, David Alan Grier in Bad Teacher & Corey Reynolds in Delirium.

A round-up of some casting news...

- First, Ernie Hudson has joined that cast of ABC’s thriller pilot Reckless, which centers on "a resourceful problem solver who, when his wife is unjustly imprisoned during a political uprising overseas, resorts to entering a world of political intrigue, dangerous alliances and high emotional stakes in order to get her out." Mr Hudson will play a veteran CIA analyst who is being pushed out of the job. Reckless is written by Chris Black and produced by Martin Campbell.

- Second, David Alan Grier has been cast in CBS' adaptation of the movie Bad Teacher - the 2011 comedy that starred Cameron Diaz. And somewhat like the film, although not entirely, the series will center on a vulgar recently-divorced woman, who becomes a teacher to find her next husband. Grier will play the school's principal, Carl Gaines, who is described as sweet and well meaning but clueless, like in the movie. He's also recently-divorced, into yoga and crystals, and the support group he created for people going through challenging times.

- Third, Corey Reynolds has joined the cast of Fox's new drama pilot, Delirium, which is based on a bestselling book trilogy by Lauren Oliver, an is set in a world "where love is deemed illegal and can be eradicated with a special procedure. With 95 days to go until her scheduled treatment, Lena Holoway does the unthinkable: she falls in love." Corey Reynolds will play a character named Lawrence Task, who's described as "the strategic, authoritative, no-BS leader in the budding Resistance movement."

I don't even remember who Lawrence is in Delirium, and I still don't see this working as a tv show

I asked a friend of mine too if she remembers who that was.

I don't think Lawrence is in the books. I remember a few characters being big in the Resistance, but no Lawrence.

I loved Ernie Hudson on Oz. <3

Delirium sounds weird, but the kind of weird I might actually watch.

I didn't see Bad Teacher cos, it didn't interest me. But, I might check the TV show out for David Alan Grier.

Ernie Hudson is one of those guys that has been in everything but I never knew his name. Unfortunately, Reckless sounds boring.
jazzypom wow, that's a lot of actors of colour17th-Feb-2013 05:43 pm (UTC)
I hope their shows are good, and that they get at least a full season. The networks have been proper ruthless this year so far.

*Prays for Scandal to have a Season 3*

LMAO David Alan Grier. I miss him on Loveline, back when Dr. Drew was still on it. He filled in for Adam a lot, he was fucking hilarious
