TV News – 06/29/09

It’s Monday and I’m running behind on the post today, but I promise you’ll be happy with what I have to offer. The news is just rolling in today so let’s get started.

Desperate Housewives went to the mob to cast their new housewife hottie, Drea de Matteo. That’s right, the former Sopranos star, will be playing a sexy, Italian housewife, to help spice up Wisteria Lane since the death of Edie ( Nicolette Sheridan ). I think this is a brilliant addition and I’m ready to see how she’s going to mesh with the current leading ladies. Should make for an excellent pick-me-up for the show. 🙂 For the full article check it out with Ausiello.

More news after the jump.

I’ve followed the evidence carefully, and it has led me to two bits of Law &Order: SVU news. First, the big news. Mariska Hargitay and Chris Meloni have renewed their contracts for at least two more years! I am very happy about this, as the show would not have been the same without them. For all the details on this check out the article here.

The second bit of news is that, according to Ausiello (yet again!), Christine Lahti has been cast to play the new ADA in the first four episodes of SVU. She’s a fantastic actress and I believe she’ll be a wonderful addition to the cast.

Did you love Reaper? Depressed it’s been cancelled? Well, don’t get too excited, it’s not coming back, but Missy Peregrym ( Sam’s girlfriend, Andi ) has been cast on the new ABC show Copper. The show is a drama focused on a group of rookie police officers and their day to day trials as they learn the ropes. The show will be filmed in Toronto, and there is no word on when it’ll air. Here’s the article with Zap2It for more information.

Some One Tree Hill news for you courtesy of Ausiello, sexy, trouble maker Rachel Gatina ( Danneel Harris ) is set to appear in at least seven episodes this coming season. Now love her, or hate her, Rachel made for good TV! Along with Danneel Harris, recent 90210 grad Jana Kramer, has been cast to play Alexis, the face of Brooke’s new clothing line. I hope all these cast additions will help OTH survive Chad and Hilarie’s departures.

Chris Vance ( Mental ) will be coming to your screen via Burn Notice, in early 2010. He’s going to be on at least four episodes in the second half of the current season. For more info go to my favorite link of the day… Ausiello! lol. 🙂

Days of Our Lives’ Trevor Donovan will be appearing as the newest hottie on this coming season of 90210. He’ll be sweet, and have all the girls swooning. I’m okay with this casting, although I think it’s a little stretch having him play a teenager when he’s in his thirties (confirmed with IMDB ). I know most of the cast is in their twenties playing teens, but thirties? To me that seems a bit much. Who knows maybe his followers from Days will tune in to see him, giving the show a boost in ratings? Only time will tell. Check the article out with Korbi at Zap2It.

Okay, that’s all for today, let me know your thoughts on today’s news below!
