That is until last week, when Anthony Lapaglia (Without a Trace) was added as her devious husband. Now, according to The Hollywood Reporter, Avatar.s Stephen Lang has joined the indie film, adding one more role to his already overloaded slate. The Terra Nova star was last seen in David A.

"Rake" is Kinnear's broadcast TV debut, with Miranda Otto and John Ortiz co-starring. According to Deadline, "Rake" is being considered for a midseason launch in the vein of "The Following," one of the few hits of last season. Kinnear will play a "House"-esque criminal defense lawyer named Keegan Deane, described as "brilliant and frustratingly charming ... whose chaotic and self-destructive personal life often gets in the way of his professional one. He takes on the cases that nobody else will touch, ruled by a resolute optimism, belief in justice and dogged determination to defend those who seem beyond redemption -- much like himself." Sam Raimi directed the pilot, and the show was created by Peter Duncan, who came up with the original Australian version.

Don Groves is a Deadline contributor based in Sydney Yesterday, Deadline posted a Funny Or Die video made by American actor Brian Guest in response to the proliferation of Australian actors being cast in broadcast pilots this season. His “agent” tells him at one point in the video, “You’re doing great work, you’re just not Australian.” As Deadline’s Nellie Andreeva pointed out, this has been a sore topic for Hollywood talent agents and their American-born clients this season as the nets bet heavily on actors from Down Under. So what’s all the hubbub about? At least 23 Aussies have been cast in pilots this season, an unprecedented number. Some are unfamiliar commodoties Stateside like Luke Mitchell, Bob Morley, Chris Egan, Lincoln Lewis, Rick Donald and Luke Bracey, who were all regulars on the Seven network’s long-running TV soap Home And Away.

"What's with today, today?" Monday, April 8, is a big day for Empire Records enthusiasts as it's been deemed the 17th Rex Manning Day. In honor of the 1995 cult classic, here are 10 lines to quote as you're celebrating the "so sexy" occasion!
If you're unfamiliar with Empire Records, the flick takes place within 24 hours (except for the first scene) at a record store that is welcoming washed-up music heartthrob Rex Manning (Maxwell Caulfield). Meanwhile, they're also trying to do everything they can to stop the independent music store from becoming a chain named Music Town.
Now that we're all caught up, check out 10 classic quotes from the film:
1. "We mustn't dwell. No, not today. We can't. Not on Rex Manning day!" -Mark (Ethan Embry)
2. "I went to rock and roll heaven, and I wasn't on the guest list. " -Debra (Robin Tunney)
3. "Well Sinead O'Rebellion. Shock me, shock me, shock me with that deviant behavior." -Gina ([link »
What's with today, today? Monday, April 8, is Rex Manning Day, a holiday created to commemorate the film "Empire Records."
The one-crazy-day comedy -- which focuses on a ragtag group of record store employees, the tyranny of chain stores and the power of Gin Blossoms and The Flying Lizards -- was released in October of 1995, making this the 17th Rex Manning Day in recorded history. But we mustn't dwell on numbers like that. No, not today. Not on Rex Manning Day.
To celebrate this year's Rex Manning Day, HuffPost Entertainment has decided to shock you (shock you, shock you) with some deviant behavior: an imagined 2013 version of "Empire Records," featuring some of today's brightest stars. We'll say no more, mon amour, and get to the fake casting:
