Jen | Categories: Casting News, News, Nina Dobrev, Non TVD Projects | Comments Off on Nina Dobrev Joins Ken Marino’s ‘Dog Days’ Pic, Filming Roger Avary’s ‘Lucky Day’

EXCLUSIVE: Just over a week before the re-imagined Flatliners comes out, Nina Dobrev is keeping her days full with two new projects.

Currently filming Roger Avary’s Lucky Day in Toronto, The Vampire Diaries alum also is joining Ken Marino’s sophomore feature directing effort Dog Days, I’ve learned. Dobrev will play Good Day Seattle host Elizabeth in the canine-connected ensemble comedy from the West Hot American Summer vet. The character relies on her pet through life and work stresses, including the unwelcomed advances of an on-air colleague. Penned by Elissa Matsueda and Erica Oyama, and produced by Mickey Liddell, Pete Shilaimon, Jennifer Monore, and Scott Holroyd, Dog Days is set to start shooting this year in Los Angeles.

Before then, Dobrev will finish up her role in the first film directed by Pulp Fiction co-scribe Avary in over a decade. Co-starring with Reservoir Dogs alum Michael Madsen and Luke Bracey in the ex-con thriller, Dobrev portrays Chloe in the Killing Zoe helmer’s latest effort. The character is the French-speaking artist wife of the ex-con and mother of his daughter at the center of Lucky Day, which all takes place over a single unpleasant day.

Samuel Hadida and Don Carmody are producing Lucky Day.

Add to the September 29-debuting Flatliners with Ellen Page and Kiefer Sutherland, Dobrev is in Departure, starring Maisie Williams and Asa Butterfield co-starring, and comedy Crash Pad with Christina Applegate and Domhnall Gleeson.

Dobrev is represented by CAA and Lighthouse Management.

Jen | Categories: News, Season 5, The Originals, TV Series | Comments Off on ‘The Originals’: Steven Kruger Upped To Regular For Season 5

Steven Kruger, a recurring guest star on the CW’s The Originals, has been promoted to series regular on the series for its upcoming Season 5.

The spinoff off The Vampire Diaries aired in midseason and was renewed in May for a fifth season. It had been vulnerable going into its fourth season as there had been discussion whether the spinoff would be able to stand on its own after mothership The Vampire Diaries ended its run.

But The Originals saw respectable ratings business on Friday, where it succeeded TVD. It’s season finale June 23 drew 910,000 total viewers in Live+Same Day and a 0.3/1 rating.

The series follows Klaus Mikaelson and his family in New Orleans. Joseph Morgan stars alongside Daniel Gillies, Phoebe Tonkin, Charles Michael Davis, Yusuf Gatewood and Riley Voelkel. It hails from My So-Called Company, Alloy Entertainment, Warner Bros Television and CBS Television Studios. Julie Plec and Leslie Morgenstein are executive producers.

May 22nd: Katharine McPhee & Daniel Gillies To Topline Lifetime’s ‘The Lost Wife Of Robert Durst’

Jen | Categories: Casting News, Daniel Gillies, Non TVD Projects | Comments Off on Katharine McPhee & Daniel Gillies To Topline Lifetime’s ‘The Lost Wife Of Robert Durst’

Lifetime has given the green light to original movie The Lost Wife of Robert Durst, with Katharine McPhee and Daniel Gillies set to star as Kathie and Robert Durst.

Based on Matt Birkbeck’s book, A Deadly Secret: The Strange Disappearance of Kathie Durst, the movie centers around the wife of Robert Durst, subject of HBO’s documentary The Jinx. Young and wide-eyed, Kathie (McPhee) falls in love with charming, yet quirky real estate scion Robert Durst (Gillies), only to find their marriage turning stranger, darker and more disturbing as time passes. But when Kathie disappears in 1982, her family and friends are deeply disturbed that her disappearance isn’t taken seriously by police. While Durst is currently in jail awaiting trial for the murder of his close friend, journalist Susan Berman, the questions linger as to what really happened to Kathie. The Lost Wife of Robert Durst pulls back the curtain on the world of Robert Durst and explores what may have happened between him and Kathie.

A movie about Robert Durst had been in development at Lifetime since last summer.

The Jinx examined Durst’s ties to his wife’s disappearance and Berman’s death, as well as the 2001 death and dismemberment of his neighbor Morris Black, for which he was tried and acquitted. The HBO series ended with Durst blurting out on a hot microphone that he “killed them all.”

The Lost Wife of Robert Durst is produced by Lincoln Square, A+E Studios and Lifetime.

McPhee stars as Paige Dineen on CBS drama series Scorpion, which recently was renewed for a fourth season.

Gillies plays Elijah on CW’s The Originals, which was renewed for a fifth season, and can next be seen in CBS’ new fall drama series SEAL Team. Gillies also directed an episode of The Originals, which airs June 2, as well as feature Broken Kingdom and documentary Kingdom Come. Gillies is repped by APA and LINK Entertainment.

Mar 6th: ‘Vampire Diaries’ Matthew Davis To Star, Amanda Warren Co-Stars In ‘Las Reinas’ ABC Pilot

Jen | Categories: Casting News, Matt Davis, Non TVD Projects, TV Series | Comments Off on ‘Vampire Diaries’ Matthew Davis To Star, Amanda Warren Co-Stars In ‘Las Reinas’ ABC Pilot

As The Vampire Diaries is nearing its end, co-star Matthew Davis has been set as a lead opposite Daniella Alonso and John Corbett in ABC’s drama pilot Las Reinas. Also cast in the project, from feature writer Dean Georgaris, ABC Studios and the Mark Gordon Co., is The Leftovers alumna Amanda Warren.

Written by Georgaris and directed by Liz Friedlander, Las Reinas centers on Detective Alex De La Reina (Alonso) who is forced to confront her past when a case compels her to reconnect with her estranged family – the most powerful criminal outfit in Miami. Thrust back into the world she thought she had left behind, Alex must walk the murky line between the law and her family, and question her true destiny as a De La Reina.

Davis will play the good guy cop, Andrew Somerset. A recent transplant to Florida, the intelligent, observant and keenly perceptive Somerset is Sonya’s partner. Sonya may be “street royalty” – but Somerset is not about to let her go it alone (as much as she’d like to).

Warren will play Inspector Kathryn Geller, the tough as nails head of the Organized Crime Task Force. Geller is a big game hunter who’s been trying to get Alex to take down her Grandmother for years.

Georgaris executive produces with Chris Brancato, who serves as showrunner, as well as TMGC’s Mark Gordon and Nicholas Pepper for ABC Studios.

Davis recently wrapped an 8-year-run on the popular CW drama The Vampire Diaries whose series finale airs this Friday. He is repped by Gersh and Brillstein.

Warren just shot back-to-back features for Martin McDonagh and Darren Aronofsky. She also played William’s mother in the most recent Memphis episode of NBC’s This Is Us. Warrnen is repped by Don Buchwald & Associates and MJ Management
