Here’s a quick look at some of the casting announcements made recently:
Desperate Housewives: Two of the world’s most famous supermodels will be making the ABC show their runway. Both Heidi Klum and Paulina Porizkova have just been tapped to appear as themselves in an episode next month. The scene - which will be set in New York - will also involve Gabrielle Solis (Eva Longoria Parker) and Angie Bolen (Drea de Matteo).
With The O.C. now off the air, we can finally get back to the high school series that kind of started it all: Beverly Hills, 90210.
The FOX show that wrapped up almost eight years ago may have a chance to live on as a contemporary spinoff on CW. If a pilot - developed by Veronica Mars’ Rob Thomas - is picked up, the new program would find a home on the same network as its New York-based counterpart, Gossip Girl.
It is not known how the new cast of players will relate to the alumnae of Beverly Hills High. It’s also not clear whether 90210 veterans will somehow be involved. But should we see appearances from Ian Ziering and Gabrielle Carteris, it wouldn’t be the strangest thing in the world. Fans of Degrassi already know how characters can stick around for generations to come.
Decisions on a possible pilot will be made by the end of the month.
