Louis Gossett Jr. has been cast as Halle Berry's father in CBS' new Steven Spielberg-produced futuristic thriller series Extant, which debuts on Wednesday, July 2, at 9/8c. The series will center on a female astronaut trying to reconnect with her family, after she returns home after a year in space. Her experiences lead to events that ultimately change the course of human history. Vague, but sounds like it could be epic, as only a Steven Spielberg series can be! Of course Halle is playing the astronaut. Gossett will play her good-natured but unreliable father - a retired doctor living out his last years in an isolated community, which keeps him out of touch with the rest of the world, including his daughter and her family. Goran Visnjic, Grace Gummer, Camryn Manheim and Michael O'Neill will also star in Extant. "There's only one Halle Berry and we are incredibly honored »
