Casting News: “Happy Time” Casts Idina Menzel + “Extant’s” Newcomer

Published

on

Idina Menzel, who flawlessly belted out the Star Spangled Banner at last night’s Superbowl XLIX, is coming to the small screen.

The Frozen actress will lead Ellen DeGeneres’s comedy, Happy Time, as a high profile woman who wants to stop pretending she’s happy…. all. the.time.

 

 

Jeffrey Dean Morgan is going to be facing off with some aliens! 

The Greys Anatomy alum is joining Halle Berry on Extant. 

He will play JD Richter, a “roguish…free-wheeling, hard-drinking” bounty hunter who is fearless and reckless. He thought he saw everything until he meets Molly and hears about her supernatural encounters.

The cast is getting a little makeover for the second season as well. Molly’s husband, played by Goran Visnjic, and her friend Sam, played by Camryn Manheim, will only return as guest stars on a few episodes. Seems a little weird considering their the two closes people in her life. But, season 2 was said to be focusing on Molly’s journey for her alien baby and she’s not taking those she loves for a ride. Yasumoto and Alan Sparks, will not be returning at all.

Morgan joins a cast that differs greatly from that of Season 1; Goran Visnjic, who plays Molly’s husband John, and Camryn Manheim, who plays her friend Sam, will return for a few episodes. Hiroyuki Sanada and Michael O’Neill, who played Yasumoto and Alan Sparks respectively, will not be back at all.

What do you think about the casting news for both Happy Time and Extant? Sound off in the comments!

Roswell, New Mexico Renewed For a Second Season!

Published

Roswell Pilot

The stars have aligned for Roswell, New Mexic.

Roswell, New Mexico just got a green light for its second season following last night’s momentous, jaw-dropping, and game-changing season 1 finale.

In the finale of The CW’s reboot, Noah was killed off after Max tapped into his God-like powers and though it seemed like everything was finally going to settle into normalcy, Max sacrificed himself to bring back Liz’s sister, Rosa, who had been preserved all these years in Noah’s pod.

The finale saw an uptick in audience — it’s biggest since February — which likely assured The CW that giving the series a season 2 was a good idea.

Roswell, New Mexico has amassed a pretty dedicated following; we’ve all been holding on for some positive renewal news.

Now, what’s going to happen with Rosa? How will she assimilate to life in Roswell, New Mexico after being dead for years? And how will they bring back Max?
