Jane Lynch will be playing Janet Reno in Discovery’s scripted drama “Manifesto,” Variety has learned.

The Emmy-winning “Glee” actress and “Hollywood Game Night” host joins a cast that includes Paul Bettany and Sam Worthington in their first major U.S. TV roles, Chris Noth, and Keisha Castle-Hughes.

Manifesto” tells the story of how FBI agent Jim “Fitz” Fitzgerald (Worthington) deployed a radical approach to intelligence gathering to take down Ted Kaczynski (Bettany), also known as the “Unabomber,” one of the most infamous criminal masterminds in the world. Reno, who oversaw Kaczynski’s capture and conviction, was the first woman to serve as Attorney General.

Early Infinity War Shoot Will Use a Cumberbatch Stand-In

14 January 2017 9:47 AM, PST | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

If Avengers: Infinity War ends up feeling slightly disjointed, we'll know why. It's being reported this morning that star Benedict Cumberbatch, who will be reprising his role as Doctor Strange, is getting a stand-in for the early part of the shoot. We're not sure if this is the only actor getting such treatment. But it all makes perfect sense.

Avengers: Infinity War is the most mammoth undertaking Marvel has ever set out to accomplish. And the production will span nearly the entire year of 2017, as the Russo Bros. shoot it with Avengers 4 back-to-back. There are a reported 67 main characters. Doing the math, that's a lot of schedules to juggle. And some of the actors aren't going to be ready when production starts in just a few weeks.

One of those actors in question is Benedict Cumberbatch. He is currently shooting the true-life drama The Current War, where he stars as Thomas Edison. »
