Ashley Hinshaw has been tapped for an arc on the upcoming second season of HBO’s True Detective, which revolves around three police officers (Colin Farrell, Taylor Kitsch, Rachel McAdams) and a career criminal (Vince Vaughn) who must navigate a web of conspiracy in the aftermath of a murder. She’ll play a troubled starlet. Hinshaw’s TV credits include True Blood and Marvel’s Agent Carter and an upcoming episode of Workaholics. She is onscreen Fox’s feature The Pyramid.
Winston Duke (Person Of Interest) has booked an arc on CW drama The Messengers, from writer/co-exec producer Eoghan O’Donnell and exec producer Basil Iwanyk. When a mysterious object crashes down to earth, some seemingly unconnected strangers die from the energy pulse but then awaken to learn that they have been deemed responsible for preventing the impending Apocalypse. Duke, repped by SDB Partners, Judy Boals and Frontline Management, will play Zahir Zakaria, a fiery journalist from Mali who is determined to seek justice after an agricultural experiment by Plowman Family Farms goes wrong in a West African village. Duke will appear in the final three episodes with the potential to return next season.
