Parker will play Secretary Justine Allenford, Deadline reports.
The vague details we have right now indicate that the character is bright and a good leader.
Parker was Soul Food‘s Teri Joseph for all five seasons of the Showtime series. Her recent projects include NBC’s failed pilot The Secret Lives of Husbands and Wives and ABC’s The Deep End.
Revolution returns for its second season on Wednesday, Sept. 25, at 8/7c.
The Revolution troops are continuing to grow.
Patrick Heusinger, whose credits include arcs on Gossip Girl (as Lord Marcus Beaton) and Royal Pains, has booked a recurring role on Season 2 of the NBC series.
Per The Hollywood Reporter, the actor will play Adam, a 30something, physically fit, handsome/roguish man who lives life to its fullest. He is described as cool and having a good sense of humor.
Heusinger is the second new cast member to join the hit drama’s ranks. Jessica Collins (Rubicon) last week was cast as a love interest for one of the show’s leading characters.
Heusinger recently exited Lifetime’s upcoming Witches of East End series.
Revolution returns with fresh episodes on Sept. 25, now airing Wednesdays at 8/7c.
The coming season is going to be a romantic one for one lucky Revolution-ary.
Jessica Collins (Rubicon, The Nine) has booked a recurring role on Season 2 of the NBC drama as a love interest for… Well, that part is a bit of a mystery.
Per Deadline, Collins — who appears in at least the first four episodes — will play Cynthia, a beautiful young woman of deep faith. Her winning humor and blazing intelligence capture the heart of one of the show’s leading characters.
Will Cynthia replace Nora as the third peg in the Miles/Rachel love triangle? Or might she cross paths with the isolated Bass? Maybe Jason is finally over his Charlie fixation?
Revolution returns with fresh episodes this fall, now airing Wednesdays at 8/7c
Stupid wordplay time! The Revolution will be televised again, things are looking Grimm for NBC, congrats on your Parenthood NBC, and uhhh, something about Law & Order: SVU and Chicago Fire. NBC has renewed all five of those shows for new seasons. All of them will get 22-episode runs for 2013-2014, which is particularly good news for the perennial bubble show Parenthood, which hasn’t had a full season since its sophomore year in 2010-2011.
Though many of these shows were considered bubble riders, none of the renewals are too surprising. NBC’s bar was always going to be low given its current wasteland of successful programming, and the network needs SOME returning dramas for its 2013-2014 schedule. The numbers these shows are putting up wouldn’t’ve given them a chance five years ago, but hey, this is the new era of network television! Glaringly absent is Bryan Fuller’s Hannibal, which has received enough critics’ praise and steady ratings in its early going to warrant at least a long look for a second season. Deception and Smash will almost certainly be canceled.
NBC says this was the drama round, so there’s no word yet on Parks & Recreation, Community, Whitney, Guys with Kids, or anything else I may have forgotten. Look for those announcements to trickle out in the coming weeks.
