Dan Stevens has joined the cast of The Tomorrow People — sort of.
The Downton Abbey star, who left the acclaimed drama after last season, will lend his voice to the new CW series, Entertainment Weekly reports.
Based on the U.K. series of the same name, it’s the story of several young people from around the world — played by Peyton List, Robbie Amell, Luke Mitchell and Aaron Yoo, among them — who represent the next stage in human evolution, possessing special powers like teleportation and telepathy. They work together to defeat the forces of evil, otherwise known as a group called Ultra, which hunts down people with these special abilities. Stevens will voice TIM, the computer who assists the Tomorrow People.
Chuck‘s Phil Klemmer executive-produces with The Vampire Diaries‘ Julie Plec and Arrow‘s Greg Berlanti.
Stevens can next be seen in the film The Fifth Estate, which hits theaters Oct. 18.
The Tomorrow People, one of TVGuide.com’s 10 most-anticipated dramas, will premiere Wednesday, Oct. 9 at 9/8c on The CW.
Bluebell is about to welcome another Breeland!
Days of Our Lives alum Maree Cheatham has been cast to play the grandmother of Jaime King‘s Lemon Breeland in an upcoming episode of Hart of Dixie when it returns for its third season this October, we’ve exclusively learned. And it seems like Lemon inherited her strong and take-charge personality from her grandmother!
Fans of the CW charmer will be meeting Grandma Bettie Breeland, Brick’s feisty mother who packs a lot of punch and is a pillar of the Southern Belles, when she ends up paying her granddaughter a visit to help preserve the Breeland name. Two Breeland women teaming up? Watch out, Bluebell!
In addition to her time as Marie Horton on Days of Our Lives, Cheatham is known for her appearances on shows such as Dexter, The League and Passions,as well as the films Beetlejuice, Mr. and Mrs. Smith and The Wedding Singer. She currently plays Nona, Cat’s (Ariana Grande) grandmother on Nickelodeon’s new hit series Sam & Cat.
Grandma Breeland isn’t the only new face fans will be seeing in Bluebell this season as we exclusively reported that One Tree Hill‘s Robert Buckley has been cast as a a sweet, ordinary guy who is just passing through town and ends up being a love interest for Lemon.
Hart of Dixie‘s third season premiers Monday, Oct. 7 on the CW.
Meet the man who will become Elena’s (Nina Dobrev) new best friend! And possibly, could it be, something more?
We can reveal that CW vet Shaun Sipos (Life Unexpected, Melrose Place) has been cast on The Vampire Diaries as a new recurring character in season five.
Sipos will play Aaron, who comes to college to escape his tortured past. It’s there that he meets Elena, and the two will bond over the fact that they’ve both experience and survived dark family tragedies. Elena attracted to a brooding and handsome stranger? Color us shocked! But also color us intrigued, please.
We also hear that it’s possible Aaron will be on TVD for a lot longer than a few episodes, and we wouldn’t blame Elena one bit if she fell for the guy. Sipos kind of resembles a young Brad Pitt, no? Sorry, Delena and Stelena fans. Just calling it like we see it.
But for now, those partial to Damon (Ian Somerhalder) and Elena’s relationship can relax. Creator Julie Plec promised in a recent sneak peek at season five that the writers plan to keep the couple together and happy for the time being.
“We’ll see how well we do with that,” she said. With the addition of this Aaron character, the writers might have their work cut out for them.
The Vampire Diaries returns Thursday, Oct. 10 on the CW.
