In the last wave of pilot castings, the pilots are booking actors for guest starring roles, most of them with potential to recur if the pilots go to series. Here are several notable guest signings:
Law & Order veteran S. Epatha Merkerson and Comedy Central roast master Jeff Ross, host of The Burn With Jeff Ross, will guest star in Fox’s Boomerang. Merkerson plays a mysterious agency bureaucrat; Ross, repped by Thruline and WME, plays an agency handler of operatives. Merkerson, repped by ICM Partners and manager Bob McGowan, recurs on NBC’s Deception and just signed on to co-star in the Marvin Gaye biopic.
