John Doman (The Wire, Damages) has joined Showtime’s upcoming drama series The Affair in a recurring role. From playwright and writer/producer Sarah Treem and co-creator Hagai Levi, The Affair is an intense and intimate exploration of two marriages and an affair that disrupts them — with all of the complex consequences that result. It centers on Noah (Dominic West), a good husband and devoted father of four whose settled, comfortable world is about to implode when he meets Allison (Ruth Wilson) who he thinks is his soul mate. Paradigm-repped Doman will play Helen’s (Maura Tierney) father, Bruce.
Kerri Medders is set for a recurring role opposite Jennie Garth and Tori Spelling in ABC Family’s new comedy series Mystery Girls. The project follows a former starlet (Spelling) who is roped into solving crimes with her former mystery TV show costar (Garth) when a witness to a crime will only speak to the infamous ‘Mystery Girls,’ which was the highest-rated program of the 90’s. Medders, repped by Paradigm and Strong Management, will play Charlie’s (Garth) daughter Demi, who’s just learning about her mother’s past life as a TV star. She thinks her mom’s new life, as a real-life detective, is even cooler. The casting is the result of a creative change in the show. There had been two daughters in the pilot, and now there is only one, played by Medders.
