EXCLUSIVE: Emerson Brooks has landed a 3-episode recurring role on TNT’s post apocalyptic naval drama The Last Ship in the show’s upcoming third season. He’ll be playing “Captain Meylan,” the highly respected and by-the-book Captain of a US Navy Ship that comes into conflict with Commander Tom Chandler (Eric Dane) and his team. Season three of The Last Ship is set to air this summer. Brooks recently guested on CBS’ NCIS: Los Angeles, and his previous credits include roles in Captain America: The Winter Soldier, Super 8, FX’s The Comedians, and Terminator Salvation. He’s repped by Aaron Kogan at Artists International Management and Steven Neibert at imperium 7.
Erin Cummings (Madoff) has signed on for a recurring role opposite David Schwimmer and Jim Sturgess on AMC’s drama series Feed The Beast. The 10-episode straight-to-series drama is about two best friends, Tommy Moran (Schwimmer), and Dion Patras (Sturgess), who take one last shot at their dream of opening a restaurant. They push each other, welcome love into their lives and overcome their demons. They also betray, backstab, manipulate and coerce each other into the most dangerous situations imaginable. Cummings will play Marisa Bruno, a whip-smart defense attorney to Patras (Sturgess). Cummings recently co-starred in NBC’s miniseries Madoff with Richard Dreyfuss and Blythe Danner, and in ABC’s summer series Astronaut Wives Club. She’s repped by Untitled Entertainment and Paradigm.
