Newcomer Marianne Rendón has booked a series regular role in Bravo’s dark comedy series My So Called Wife, from Universal Cable Productions and executive producers Adam Brooks and Paul Adelstein. My So Called Wife follows Maddie (Inbar Lavi), a master-of-disguise con-artist who gets men and women to fall in love with her, marries them and then disappears with their money and just enough dirty inside information to guarantee they will never go to the police. But things become complicated when Ezra, her most recent mark, meets up with another of her heartbroken victims and they decide to track down Maddie and her cohorts. Rendón will play Jules, a smart, attractive, wickedly funny and charming artist. Rendón landed the role just a few weeks after graduating from Juilliard. She’s repped by Brookside Artist Management and Gersh.
Chloe Coleman is set for a lead role opposite Matthew Goode in WGN America’s alien saga pilot Roadside Picnic, based on the famous novel by top Soviet/Russian science fiction writers Arkady and Boris Strugatsky. Written by Transcendence scribe Jack Paglen, with Terminator: Genisys and Game of Thrones helmer Alan Taylor attached to direct, Neal Moritz & Vivian Cannon producing, Roadside Picnic explores a near-future world where aliens have come and gone, leaving humankind to explore the wondrous and dangerous mysteries left behind. The story also explores the social ramifications of their visit, as seen through the eyes of Red Schuhart (Matthew Goode), a veteran “stalker” who has made it his mission to illegally venture into the once inhabited zone and scavenge the abandoned remains of the alien culture. Coleman will play Red’s daughter Marie, a child who’s been highly affected by her father’s time in the zone. Coleman will next be seen in HBO’s anticipated series Big Little Lies and she recurs on Amazon’s Transparent. Coleman is repped by Abrams Artists Agency’s Youth Division, and Crackerjack Management.
