In US casting news Rob Lowe, Blair Underwood and Russell Tovey are joining two US titles, both of which will air on Seven.
Rob Lowe, currently seen in The Grinder (since cancelled), has joined the second season of medical drama Code Black.
Lowe will play Col. Ethan Willis, a doctor in the U.S. military’s prestigious combat casualty care research program who has been pulled out of a combat hospital in Afghanistan and embedded at Angels Memorial to teach what the military has learned about combat medicine.
Meanwhile Blair Underwood joins season two of Quantico. He will play Owen Hall, described as having an instant presence — he’s charming, direct and comfortable. He is the intelligent and inspirational CIA officer every fledgling operative wishes he or she could learn from. But is he running them, or using them for something else?
Quantico also features Russell Tovey as Harry Doyle, a mysterious character described as part Thomas Crown, part grown-up Artful Dodger.
