And here’s what’s been happening in the casting department lately. I’m still very busy at the moment, as you might have noticed from the lack of updates lately, so here are only a few things that I think need to be out there.
- Miley Cyrus (“Hannah Montana”) – and her new haircut – have joined CBS’ “Two And A Half Men” for a two-episode arc, per TVLine’s Michael Ausiello. She will play “Missi, an old family friend of Walden’s (Ashton Kutcher) who comes to visit for a week and develops a relationship with Jake (Angus T. Jones) when he comes home from the army.”
Debby Ryan is about to get serious again.
The 19-year old star of the Disney Channel comedy series “Jessie” has signed on to guest star on an upcoming episode of A&E’s “The Glades”, per TVLine’s Matt Webb Mitovich.
The Bates Motel is about to have some vacancies again.
A&E has announced that it has ordered its project “Bates Motel”, which tells the contemporary backstory of the schizophrenic Norman Bates and his relationship with his mother, Norma, straight to series with a 10-episode pickup.

According to TVLine’s Megan Masters, occasional “Bones” lab squintern Joel David Moore is ready to visit some “Men At Work”.
The actor, who recurred on “Bones” up until last year, and might do again next season, will be guest starring in the TBS comedy in an upcoming episode titled “Super Milo”. He will play Doug, an editor of Full Steam Magazine who gets involved in the guys’ kooky competition to hold a staff meeting only with lyrics of popular songs. “Men at Work” airs Thursdays at 10/9c PM on TBS.
And here’s more TV dish.
