Last year, CW superhero drama ‘Arrow‘ made a tremendous commitment to casting genre stars in securing its geek cred, tapping everyone from ‘Doctor Who‘ to ‘Battlestar Galactica‘ stars in populating the world of Oliver Queen (Stephen Amell)’s Starling City. That trend continues today in casting fan-favorite ‘Stargate SG-1‘ star Teryl Rothery for a mysterious new role, but who might the former Dr. Janet Frasier play this time around?
Supernatural has cast Battlestar Galactica alum Tahmoh Penikett to guest-star on an upcoming episode, TVGuide.com has learned.
Penikett will first appear in the season premiere (Oct. 8 at 9/8c on The CW), which will pick up after Metatron expelled the angels from Heaven. He will play an angel named Ezekiel, whom showrunner Jeremy Carver described as “a dignified warrior angel injured in the Fall.”
Janina Gavankar is trading one blood-sucking drama for another. The ex-True Blood shape-shifter has booked a potentially recurring gig on Season 5 of The Vampire Diaries, TVLine has learned exclusively.
Gavankar will play Tessa, a beautiful, exotic and self-assured woman who comes to Mystic Falls to rekindle an old flame.Read More »

Giancarlo Esposito will set down Revolution baddie Tom Neville’s sword long enough to pay a return visit to Once Upon a Time this fall, TVLine has learned.
Esposito will appear in one of Season 3′s first episodes, though mum’s the word on which of his alter egos he will be playing — Storybrooke newspaper man Sidney Glass, the Evil Queen’s royally smitten Magic Mirror, or even the Genie of Agrabah.
The CW’s Arrow has its sights set on further upping its geek cred by casting Whedonverse alum and onetime Terminator Summer Glau as an adversary for Oliver Queen.
In Season 2 of the superhero series, Glau will fill the recurring role of Isabel Rochev, the beautiful (ya think?) and dangerous Vice President of Aquisitions for Stellmoor International, a company looking to take over Queen Consolidated. Previously on the show, her name was glimpsed on Robert Queen’s “list.”
Heroes for Hire wants to congratulate Drew Roy, Moon Bloodgood, and the “Falling Skies” cast/crew on the TNT renewal.
