CLUB, THE (ABC/ABC Studios/CTS; W: David O. Russell & Susannah Grant; D: TBA) - Betsy Brandt ("The Michael J. Fox Show") is the latest addition to the drama pilot, an upstairs/downstairs soap set at a private country club. She's set as Leslie Holbrooke, "the wife of one of the brothers who own the club who just ran off with their father's trophy-wife stepmother after squandering the club's finances, leaving behind his wife, who has a legal consulting practice, and their son." Said role is in second position to the NBC comedy, which is not expected to return. Callie Hernandez and Chris Conroy also star. (Deadline.com)


HOW I MET YOUR DAD (CBS/20th; W: Carter Bays, Craig Thomas & Emily Spivey; D: Rob Greenberg) - Krysta Rodriguez has bowed out of the comedy pilot, which tells the "How I Met Your Mother" story from a female point of view, that of Sally (Greta Gerwig), and revolves around a new group of friends in New York. She had been set to play Sally's best friend Juliet, "a sexy, flamboyant force of nature who runs the most successful fashion blog in the country." Said change came after the pilot's table read. Anders Holm, Andrew Santino, Drew Tarver and Nick D'Agosto also star. (Deadline.com)


MATADOR (El Rey; W: Alex Kurtzman, Dan Dworkin, Jay Beattie & Roberto Orci; D: Robert Rodriguez) - Alfred Molina ("Monday Mornings") has been cast in the upcoming drama, about Antonio "Matador" Bravo (Gabriel Luna), a popular soccer star, who comes to be known as much for his playboy antics off the field as his dynamic moves on it. But what his fans and family don't realize is that it's all a cover - in truth, he is a skilled covert operative executing missions for a little known branch of the CIA. He'll play Andres Galan, "owner of the ascendant LA Riot franchise." Nicky Whelan also stars. (Deadline.com)


AND IN OTHER NEWS... - "CSI" co-star Paul Guilfoyle is bowing out of the veteran drama after 14 seasons (THR.com); Gil Bellows will guest on "CSI's" proposed cyber crimes spin-off episode as "a wealthy and powerful casino mogul with many secrets" (TVLine.com); Adam Hicks has been tapped to play youngest Ranger Turett Fincham in History's mini-series "Texas Rising" (Deadline.com); Kelli Williams will visit "NCIS" in "an upcoming episode that will explore the issue of sexual assault in the Navy" (TVLine.com); Justin Hartley is bound for "Mistressess" as "the nicest plastic surgeon in Los Angeles with a teeny tiny fetish" (TVLine.com); and "American Horror Story's" fourth installment has revealed its subtitle as "Freak Show" (@MrRPMurphy).
