Joel Johnstone Joins ABC’s ‘The Astronaut Wives Club’; Rahart Adams In Nickelodeon’s ‘Every Witch Way’

Joel Johnstone (Getting On, The Newsroom) has been cast in ABC’s 10-episode drama series The Astronaut Wives Club, from Fake Empire, Groundswell Productions and ABC Studios. Written by Stephanie Savage based on Lily Koppel’s book and directed by Nick Cassavetes, it tells the real story of the women who stood beside some of the biggest heroes in American history during the height of the space race. Johnstone, repped by BRS/Gage and Working Entertainment, will play Gus Grissom, an average student and athlete who may be the least likely astronaut but proves himself to be one of NASA’s top men. He’s an extraordinary engineer who flies on the Mercury and Gemini missions, and becomes the first man to go into space twice.
