Where Are They Now? Some Greenroom Chatter for November 3, 2008

Off Duty castSooner or later our favorite TV shows all come to an end and the cast and crew all go their separate ways. If we’re lucky, our favorite performers return in new TV shows and movies. Here’s where you’ll be able to see a bunch of them…

Bradley Whitford (Studio 60 on the Sunset Strip) is returning to NBC for his third TV series on the peacock network. This time around, the Emmy winner will both star in and produce a single-camera comedy called Off Duty. In the series pilot, Whitford will play a formerly legendary police detective who ends up causing problems for his new partner, played by Romany Malco (Weeds).

Willie Garson (John from Cincinnati) has signed on for a series regular role in White Collar, a series pilot for Fox Studios/USA Network. Garson’s other upcoming projects include movies like Shannon’s Rainbow with Jason Gedrick (Murder One) and Eric Roberts (Less than Perfect), and Labor Pains with Chris Parnell (Miss Guided) and Luke Kirby (Tell Me You Love Me).

Michael Kenneth Williams (The Kill Point) has landed a series regular role on an NBC pilot, The Philanthropist. Williams’ upcoming projects include the film Wonderful World with Ally Walker (Tell Me You Love Me), Philip Baker Hall (The Loop), and Jesse Tyler Ferguson (Do Not Disturb).

Hidden Palms’ Taylor Handley has been signed to star in Skateland , an independent film co-starring Shiloh Fernandez (Jericho). Handley’s also committed to LAPD, a new series from John Wells (ER) that stars Tom Everett Scott (Grace Under Fire) and Regina King (Leap of Faith).

Sarah Wynter (The Dead Zone) has booked a guest-starring role in HBO’s The Flight of the Conchords. She’ll be playing a crass love interest of Jemaine (Jemaine Clement).

Look for Dave Franco on 2009 episodes of CW’s Privileged. The Do Not Disturbed alum will be seen in several episodes playing the new love interest of Rose, the spoiled rich girl played by Lucy Hale (Bionic Woman).

John Schneider (The Dukes of Hazzard), who recently returned to series television in a regular role on ABC Family’s The Secret Life of the American Teenager, has booked another TV gig. For three episodes of Dirty Sexy Money, he’ll be playing a congressman who does the dirty work of Tripp Darling (Commander in Chief’s Donald Sutherland) to mess with Simon Elder (L.A. Law’s Blair Underwood). Stay tuned! TV Series Finale home page
