  • Kurt Fuller (“Parenthood”) will play Jason Ritter’s dad in the Fox sitcom “Friends and Family”, the U.S version of “Gavin & Stacey”. “Fuller will play Gavin’s father Michael, a curmudgeon (his character description says he’s “full of piss and balsamic vinegar”) who drives his feisty wife Pam bonkers.” (The Hollywood Reporter)
  • Derek Luke (“Friday Night Lights”) will star opposite Jason Lee in the new CBS drama “Second Sight”, ”a gothic psychological thriller about Tanner (Lee), the lead detective with the New Orleans Police Department who is hiding the fact that he has an ocular disorder that causes him to have horrifying hallucinations.

  • Matthew Lillard (“The Descendants”) will star in the NBC pilot “I Am Victor”, starring John Stamos as Victor Port “a high powered divorce attorney with a unique view of relationships.

George, repped by ICM Partners, 3 Arts and Smelkinson, will play Fiona Hunter, the series’ most formidable force, and everyone – from Grace, to Dorian (Chris Egan), to Victor Frankenstein (Tom Ellis) – will find their mettle and savvy tested by this deliciously cunning woman.” (Deadline)
