Nicholas Gonzalez has booked a series regular role in the Lifetime pilot Witches Of East End, which stars Julia Ormond as a mom who has been concealing a shocking secret from her daughters Ingrid and Freya — namely that they are witches. Gonzales will play Matthew, a good-natured local cop who is dating a ditzy co-worker of Ingrid’s (Rachel Boston) but is very much interested in Ingrid. He soon becomes very busy at work when a series of murders and strange deaths bedevil his previously placid township. Gonzalez, repped by Pakula/King and KLWGN, next appears in the Lifetime/Sony movie Left To Die opposite Rachael Leigh Cook.
Brooke Lyons has been cast on USA Network’s Psych playing an actress in an ill-fated musical. She also is the muse to the musical’s playwright, to be played by Rent‘s Anthony Rapp. Lyons, who recurs on CBS’ 2 Broke Girls, is repped by Innovative and Schumacher Management.
