Greta Lee (Wayward Pines) has been cast opposite Hugh Laurie on Hulu’s drama series Chance, from Fox 21 TV Studios. Based on Kem Nunn’s 2014 novel, Chance is described as a provocative psychological thriller that focuses on Eldon Chance (Laurie), a San Francisco-based forensic neuropsychiatrist who reluctantly gets sucked into a violent and dangerous world of mistaken identity, police corruption and mental illness. Lee will play Chance’s assistant, Lucy, a former studio artist and present psychology major. Lee was recently seen in Sisters alongside Amy Poehler and Tina Fey. Upcoming films include Money Monster and Pottersville. Lee will return for the second season of Fox’s Wayward Pines in the recurring role of Ruby. She’s repped by UTA, Regarding Entertainment and Jackoway Tyerman.
Steve Talley (Hindsight) is set as a series regular opposite Sebastian Maniscalco and Tony Danza in NBC’s multi-camera pilot Sebastian, produced by Greg Garcia. The project, from CBS TV Studios and Garcia’s Amigos de Garcia Productions, was inspired by Maniscalco’s life. Written by Austen Earl and to be directed by Scott Ellis, it chronicles Sebastian’s (Maniscalco) old-school values, instilled by his opinionated Italian father (Danza), which are constantly put to the test by his new wife, her family and the absurdities of the modern world. Talley will play Trevor, Chloe’s husband, an attractive, charming and cocky frat guy who comes from a similar background as Sebastian — the difference is, while Sebastian would never take handouts from Lana’s family, Trevor takes every single one. Talley is repped by Domain and Framework Entertainment.
