I'm intrigued after seeing the CW clips. Maggie has the style and grace for this role. About Devon, love it. He has been in the Hollywood shadow for too long. Thinking CW could land some ladies into their numbers with Devon's character having layers and chemistry, and of course the occasional shirtless scene. All in due purpose for counterbalancing the lingerie and cleavage shots of Maggie.
