Tara Lynne Barr has booked a recurring role in NBC‘s upcoming series Aquarius, a gritty 1960s drama about a cop (David Duchovny) who goes undercover to track Charles Manson and the Manson Family before their infamous murder spree. APA-repped Barr will play Katie (Patricia Krenwinkle), one of Manson’s adoring acolytes, who helps him lay a trap for the unwitting Emma, and later joins in the party when Manson deflowers his new recruit. Barr will next be seen in upcoming horror thriller feature 6 Miranda Drive.

Newcomer Kahyun Kim has been cast as a recurring in NBC drama The Mysteries Of Laura. Written by Jeff Rake and directed by McG, Mysteries Of Laura follows the life and relationships of Laura Diamond (Debra Messing), a female homicide detective who can handle murderous criminals but not her hell-raising twin children. Kim, repped by SDB Partners and Kyle Fritz Management, will play Sammi, a whip smart and feisty political activist who bonds with Detective Diamond when she’s arrested during a protest.
