Once Upon a Time just got a little more magical! ABC’s fairy tale drama just promoted Emilie de Ravin to a series regular, so get ready to see more Belle in the second season. The Lost vet is a welcome addition to an already really great cast that features Jennifer Morrison, Ginnifer Goodwin, Josh Dallas, Lana Parrilla, and Robert Carlyle. This is the second such promotion in recent weeks as the show upgraded Meghan Ory to a series regular. Ory portrays Ruby aka Little Red Riding Hood.
Burn Notice just got a little more awesome as John C. McGinley is joining the show for five episodes (maybe more?). You should remember McGinley from his scene stealing roles in Scrubs and Point Break. In Burn Notice he’ll be taking on the role of Tom Card, a CIA training offer who taught Michael (Jeffrey Donovan) everything he knows and was a mentor/father-figure of sorts. Michael turns to him to help get Fiona (Gabrielle Anwar) out of prison. Tune in to Burn Notice tonight at 9p on USA to see how McGinley fits into the mix.
I guess Unforgettable might not be as forgettable as CBS thought it was as the network is in talks to revive the show, only weeks after not renewing it. The procedural starred Poppy Montgomery as a detective with an uncanny memory- they took the idea of a photographic memory to a cartoon like place by having her remember every piece of everything she ever sees tot he extent that she can even walk through the memories. It plays out more like a super power rather than a grounded detective show. The series co-stars Nip/Tuck‘s Dylan Walsh. We will have to wait and see if CBS ends up ordering more episodes and what impact it will have on the show’s budget and cast.
