If Loving You Is Wrong‘s Heather Hemmens has booked a recurring role in Yellowstone starring Kevin Costner, Paramount Network’s straight-to-series period drama set to premiere in 2018. From Oscar-nominated writer/executive producer Taylor Sheridan (Hell Or High Water, Sicario), Yellowstone follows the Dutton family, led by John Dutton (Costner), who controls the largest contiguous ranch in the United States, under constant attack by those it borders — land developers, an Indian reservation, and America’s first National Park. Hemmens will play Melody, a woman who has a cryptic phone conversation with Jenkins who urgently summons her to the ranch. She promises to be there first thing in the morning. Hemmens is currently a series regular on Tyler Perry’s If Loving You Is Wrong and previously was a series regular on the CW’s Hellcats. She’s repped by APA and Primary Wave Entertainment.
Mike Dopud (Power) has landed a key recurring role on Season 5 of the CW’s serialized sci-fi drama series The 100. Dopud will play Vinson. Looking more like a professor than a hardened criminal, Vinson stands out from the rest of the Eligius prisoners. But don’t let his overly polite demeanor fool you – he’s actually a ruthless serial killer, terrifying enough to keep even the worst of the criminals on their toes. Dopud currently recurs on Starz’s Power will be seen in the upcoming Deadpool 2. He’s repped by Global Artists Agency.
