Damon Dayoub has landed a regular role opposite Mireille Enos in ABC pilot The Catch, from ABC Studios and Shonda Rhimes’ Shondaland. Written and executive produced by Jennifer Schuur based on the novel by Kate Atkinson, The Catch centers on Alice (Enos), who is about to get married to Kieran (Dayoub) and about to get conned. Unbeknownst to her slippery fiancé, our heroine — who investigates fraud for a living — is not all she claims to be. And when Kieran’s expertly planned con collides with her perfectly constructed lies, they plunge into a dangerous game of cat and mouse. Dayoub, repped by TalentWorks and Pop Art Management, recurs on ABC Family’s Stitchers.
Andy Mientus (Smash) has booked a regular role on CBS medical drama pilot LFE, from The Dan Jinks Co. and CBS TV. Written/co-executive produced by Paul Downs Colaizzo, LFE is described as a high-octane medical procedural revolving around second-year residents at New York City’s top hospital as they attempt to balance their god complexes with their humanity. Mientus, repped by Abrams Artists, Harden-Curtis Associates, and manager Geoff Soffer, will play Trevor, a second-year surgical resident. His hypervigilance makes him a fast reactor to threatening stimuli, so when a crisis situation comes along, he is able to rise above and save the day— though he nearly will have a panic attack while he does it. Mientus recently appeared as Pied Piper on The Flash.
