Josh Hamilton, who is coming off American Horror Story: Coven, has been cast in another limited series, Fox’s Gracepoint, a remake of the UK’s Broadchurch. The project, from Shine America and Kudos, centers on Detective Emmett Carver (David Tennant), the lead male investigator on the case of a shocking murder of 11-year-old Danny that puts a small town under scrutiny. Hamilton, repped by UTA, will play Joe Miller, Det. Ellie Miller’s (Anna Gunn) husband.
Joanna P. Adler has joined Lifetime’s dramedy Devious Maids, from ABC Studios, as a new series regular. She will play Opal, a new maid who is secretive & conniving, reminiscent of Mrs. Danvers from Hitchcock’s Rebecca. Adler, repped by Liebman Entertainment and Schreck Rose, recently recurred on Orange is the New Black & 30 Rock. She joins fellow new Maids regular Dominic Adams.
