He'll play the new mayor of New York City, Carter Poole - "a liberal, who has a background in community organizing and is particularly soft on crime [who] rubs Reagan the wrong way, but the two find a way to cooperate." He'll make his first appearance in the September 23 season opener.


BURN NOTICE (USA) - Jere Burns has snagged a recurring on the show's current season.

The pact, financial details of which weren't released, gives said company first crack at his Dare to Pass banner's output, which will be developed alongside fellow studio-based Brillstein Entertainment Partners.

They'll fill the void left by Saffron Burrows, whose character won't continue onto the series.

Dillane will play the mentioned-but-not-seen Stannis Baratheon, the late King Robert's eldest younger brother, who aims to seize the Iron Throne from King Joffrey. van Houten then is set as a mysterious sorceress who counsels Stannis with Cunningham as a knight who likewise aids Stannis in his quest.


RINGER (The CW) - Jaime Murray ("Spartacus: Gods of the Arena") has landed a potentially recurring role on the freshman drama. She'll play Olivia, Andrew Martin's (Ioan Gruffudd) "stunning business partner, the only woman in a boy's club and she relishes it."
