Kevin Zegers, Ryan Eggold, Lauren Cohan to Star in Pilots

by at . Comments

A troika of familiar CW faces - Kevin Zegers, Ryan Eggold and Lauren Cohan - have all been cast in pilots. The latter two will remain on the very same network.

Supernatural and Vampire Diaries star Cohan has landed the female lead in the CW’s pilot Heavenly, for which Eggold (90210) has also secured a major role.

Heavenly will center on Lily (Cohan), a dedicated young female attorney, and a former angel, Dashiel Coffee (Ben Aldridge), who only recently turned human.

  • Wilting Rose
  • Bad News Damien

Short version: They tackle cases at the attorney’s legal aid clinic, saving souls and winning legal battles. Eggold will play a pastor Dashiel seeks counsel from.

Meanwhile, Gossip Girl's Zegers will appear alongside Jimmy Wolk in Georgetown

In the upcoming ABC series, Andrew Pierce (Wolk) is an effortlessly charming and brilliant Yale graduate and the youngest Presidential speechwriter on record.

Zegers, familiar to Gossip Girl fans as Damien, will portray Monty, a handsome, wealthy stockbroker from a well-connected family and an old rival of Andrew’s.

Looking forward to seeing these talented actors in their new roles!

No offense, but Heavenly's "angel" Dashiel Coffee sounds like a badly written rip-off of Supernatural's Castiel.....really CW? You couldn't come up with something new? It's insulting!

Gossip Girl Quotes

And who am I? That's one secret I'll never tell ... You know you love me. XOXO, Gossip Girl

Gossip Girl

[to Jenny] That's the thing. You need to be cool to be queen. Anne Boleyn thought only with her heart and she got her head chopped off. So her daughter Elizabeth made a vow never to marry a man. She married a country. Forget boys. Keep your eye on the prize, Jenny Humphrey. You can't make people love you, but you can make them fear you. For what it's worth, you're my Queen. I choose you.
