Casting Scoops: 'True Blood,' 'Cold Case,' 'Numb3rs,' 'Burn Notice' and More!

Posted on

Faheyevebrown_lWhat do a Lost grad, a rapper-turned-actress, the ex-fiancé of a discredited CIA agent, and Matthew Fox’s We Are Marshall co-star have in common? They’re all featured in this week’s holiday-themed edition of Casting Scoops!

Lost copter pilot Jeff Fahey has closed a deal to guest star in an early ’09 episode of CBS’ Cold Case. He’ll play the owner of a boutique motorcycle customization shop who has cleaned up from his early days as a biker.

Numb3rs is adding rapper-turned-actress Eve to the mix for a caper-esque episode that finds the “FBI chasing a very valuable pair of sneakers as they pass through one criminal after another,” explains exec producer Ken Sanzel. Eve plays a sales rep at a sneaker company and an early suspect.

• Actress Dina Meyer (Beverly Hills, 90210, Point Pleasant) has been cast as the former fiancé of Jeffrey Donovan’s Michael on Burn Notice. She’ll show up in the season 2 finale on March 5.

• More fresh blood! Wes Brown (We Are Marshall) is the latest addition to True Blood‘s season 2 ensemble. He’ll play Luke, a God-obsessed hunk that bonds with Jason (Ryan Kwanten) at a church camp, in at least six episodes.
