oh who can forget Ving Rhamas and his Diamond Dog character in Con Air, or his role in Mission Impossible!
Jamie Bamber and his roles in Hornblower and Law and Order UK!
it will also have Tara Summers, loved her in Boston Legal!
Eyal Podell, talk about hottie alert!
plus Mason Cook, he was so adorable in Spy kids! the cutest kid ever!
all in all it is a golden cast!!!!!!


can't wait as well!! i LOVE Alfred Molina!!! fell in love ever since i saw him "Chocolate" and then watched ALL of his movies. Plus this is Kelly's creation! aside from Harry's law created some of my fav TV shows of all time. Boston Legal anyone?!! on a side note, i liked Harry's Law for the entire first season, i think they should have stuck with working out of a shoe store and solving neighborhood probs, it had an original spin.


Can't wait to see if TNT drama pilot "Scent of the Missing", starring Tricia Gelfer, Eric Winter and the beautiful and talented Summer Glau (Firefly, Terminator : The Sarah Connor chronicles) is going to series.
