Homeland is restocking its ensemble before diving into another season of high-stakes spy games: The Emmy-winning thriller has added two actors to its Season 7 cast, TVLine has learned.
First up is Morgan Spector (Boardwalk Empire, Person of Interest), who will be a series regular in Season 7 as Dante Allen, an old friend of Carrie’s who is looking into the hundreds of people President Keane has detained following last season’s assassination attempt. (Season 6 ended with that assassination attempt, and an increasingly paranoid Keane shutting Carrie out of her inner circle.)

"You want a glass of Burgundy?" Pamela Adlon asks, encouragingly, as she sits down in a ritzy Beverly Hills restaurant. The multi-hyphenate force behind FX's Better Things then gestures to her full face of makeup, which has been professionally applied for a photo shoot: "By the way, this is not me."

The final episode of “Living Single” aired nearly two decades ago, but according to Queen Latifah, a reboot of the beloved sitcom may be on the way. The Oscar nominee spilled some details during an appearance on “Watch What Happens Live,” Essence reports.
When a caller asked if there was any chance the show could ever return, Latifah confirmed, “We’re actually working on it.” She explained, “It’s not there yet, but hopefully we can get it happening.” She said she’ll be a producer on the project and hopes to reassemble the original cast.
Created by Yvette Lee Bowser (“Black-ish”), “Living Single” followed the lives of six friends living in a Brooklyn brownstone and ran for five seasons on Fox from 1993 to 1998. The cast also included Kim Coles (“In Living Color”), Erika Alexander (“The Cosby Show”), and Kim Fields (“The Facts of Life”).
Latifah’s recent credits include “Girls Trip,” “Bessie,” and “Miracles from Heaven.” She earned an Oscar nod for “Chicago” in 2002. She serves on the Board of Directors for We Do It Together, a collective formed to finance and produce films, documentaries, TV, and other media working towards the goal of empowering women.
“Living Single” Reboot in the Works was originally published in Women and Hollywood on Medium, where people are continuing the conversation by highlighting and responding to this story. »
