Eve Harlow has booked a series regular role on ABC’s murder trial drama pilot The Jury, from Sony TV and ABC Studios. Written by VJ Boyd and Mark Bianculli and executive produced by Carol Mendelsohn, The Jury examines “the ultimate social experiment” that happens thousands of times a day in the U.S.: a person’s fate is placed in the hands of 12 strangers. The series follows a single murder trial a season as seen through the eyes of the individual jurors. Harlow will play Melody, who’s completely cynical about the justice system, and has a nonplussed, contrarian attitude that borders on nihilism, but has a razor-sharp sense of humor. Harlow, repped by Industry Entertainment and OAZ, was recently seen on NBC’s Heroes Reborn and played Maya Vie on The CW’s The 100.
Anthony Carrigan has joined the cast of HBO’s Barry, a half-hour comedy pilot starring, directed and co-written by Bill Hader. It centers on an ex-Marine (Hader) who works as a low-rent hitman in the Midwest. Lonely and dissatisfied in his life, he begrudgingly travels to Los Angeles to kill someone and ends up finding an accepting community in a group of eager hopefuls within the L.A. theater scene.
Carrigan, repped by Stewart Talent and Schlegel Entertainment, will play Noho Hank, a Russian gangster. His recent TV credits include NBC’s The Blacklist, Fox’s Gotham and The CW’s The Flash.
