Katie Holmes has been cast in an untitled drama pilot from Richard Lagravenese for ABC. The show is set in New York and revolves around "two equally matched, powerful socialites who play out their obsessive attraction and seduction of each other through their manipulation of others," according to the show's log line. Per Deadline, Holmes will play "a woman of education and breeding" who runs a charity with her husband and gets caught up in a Dangerous Liaisons–esque romantic entanglement. This would be Holmes's first regular TV gig since Dawson's Creek, so it'd be nice for all of us if they could cast another Dawson alum as her husband. Kerr Smith, maybe? »

Katie Holmes is coming home. Rejoice, Joey Potter fans—The beloved Dawson's Creek star is set to make her return to TV! Holmes is set to star in a buzzed-about drama pilot for ABC, E! News has confirmed. The juicy drama, which comes from Behind the Candelabra's Richard Lagravenese, is set in modern-day New York City and has a similar premise to the film Dangerous Liaisons (or Cruel Intentions), with a diabolical duo making a bet to destroy a woman's perfect marriage. Said woman? Holmes' Ann! Well-bred, smart and stylish, Ann runs a philanthropic foundation with her husband, and becomes the target of the bet between Philip (to be played by Rufus Sewell) and Margot (yet to be »
We guess there are weirder "celebrity couples" to base your fashions around, but Diane Kruger and Joshua Jackson would have been way better off copying Becks and Posh or Brangelina. Yes, The Bridge star and her Fringe actor hubby were dressing conservatively to meet the Dalai Lama, but even a Buddhist monk has better fashion sense than the two miserable farmers in the American Gothic painting! Obviously the German beauty is dressed far more fashionably than her older, sadder counterpart, but the pointy white collar is what first jogged our memory of the famous painting. And the Dawson's Creek alum is looking far more dapper than the pitch-fork fella' with a frown, but his monochromatic combo is equally »

The CW's Flash pilot is honouring its predecessor with a cameo from 90s Flash, John Wesley Shipp...
Those of us who found it tricky to concentrate on any scene featuring Mitch Leery (John Wesley Shipp) on Dawson's Creek thanks to the memory of his days in skin-tight red lycra as The Flash in his titular early nineties TV series will be tickled by this one.
The CW, which is doing its damnedest to match Gotham for daily pilot casting announcements, is to feature an as-yet undisclosed appearance from Shipp as homage to the show's roots. It's a neat idea and a tip of the hat towards The Flash's past, just as long as Shipp is one of the only things the new pilot takes from its short-lived predecessor...

While fans were introduced to the new Barry Allen/Flash (Grant Gustin) during his guest spot on recent episodes of The CW's Arrow, a whole new generation will meet the old Flash, in the form of John Wesley Shipp. Shipp's role in the upcoming pilot of The Flash is being kept quiet, but it will likely be more than a simple nod to nostalgia since Shipp may land a recurring role if the pilot gets picked up to series. My guess? He'd be some sort of superior to Gustin's Allen, who works as a Central City assistant police forensic investigator while moonlighting as a superheroic speedster after a lab accident. Hit the jump for more casting news for The Flash. As the press release reports, Shipp will indeed guest star on The CW's The Flash pilot. While he might be more recognizable to fans of Dawson's Creek, Shipp played the »

Shipp will guest star in the pilot in a mystery role, and his part is intended to become a recurring role should the pilot be picked up to series.

Martin as Detective West.

The CW has brought on John Wesley Shipp, who played the original Barry Allen in the 1990 TV series The Flash, to guest star on their new version of The Flash. The actor's role is being kept under wraps, but his character will likely have a recurring role, if The CW issues a series order for the Arrow spin-off.
It's possible that the 59-year-old actor may be playing the imprisoned father of Barry Allen (Grant Gustin). When Barry was first introduced in the Arrow episode "The Scientist", Barry revealed that his father went to prison for the murder of his mother, who Barry claims was killed by a "tornado" with a man inside.
John Wesley Shipp joins a cast that includes Grant Gustin, Jesse L. Martin as Barry's father figure Detective West, Candice Patton as West's daughter and Barry's love interest Iris West, Danielle Panabaker as bioengineering expert Caitlin Snow, Rick Cosnett as Detective Eddie Thawne, »

"Stay away from Hannibal Lecter"
So says the latest teaser trailer for Hannibal season two (below). Sound advice, but one character not heeding it will be Mason Verger, a wealthy patient of Lecter's due to appear in the second season of Bryan Fuller's psychological horror series.
Playing Verger, who was depicted by a heavily disguised Gary Oldman in Ridley Scott's 2001 Hannibal, will be Michael Pitt, an actor best recognised for his central role in Boardwalk Empire and whose first major TV part came as callow Henry Parker in Dawson's Creek.
Hannibal returns to NBC on Friday the 28th of February. Read our spoiler-filled season one reviews, here.

James Van Der Beek and his wife Kimberly are revealing the name of their adorable new addition. "We named our baby girl," the proud mama shared on Instagram on Friday, Jan. 31, along with a pic of Annabel written out on a wood surface and some hearts. Unfortunately the name announcement did not come with a photo of the newborn, so we will have to wait to see little Annabel. The star of the upcoming Friends With Better Lives and Kimberly welcomed their third child together on Saturday, Jan. 25. "Outnumbered by kids, outnumbered by girls, outlandishly grateful and thrilled... Watch out world, Vdb baby #3 made her debut last night :)" the Dawson's Creek alum »
Michael Pitt, most recently of Boardwalk Empire, will be guest-starring on Hannibal in a "major role," according to EW. Pitt will play Mason Verger, a wealthy, dangerous patient of Dr. Lecter's. In the 1999 Hannibal book, Verger is a child rapist whom Lecter disfigures and paralyzes during a therapy session gone sadistic, and Verger dreams of exacting revenge by feeding Lecter to wild boars. (Gary Oldman played the same character in the 2001 Hannibal movie.) Oh, sure, people think Michelle Williams is the one who got as far away from Dawson's Creek as humanly possible, but they're wrong. It's definitely Michael Pitt. »

Some shows are defined by their leads - you can't imagine 24 without Jack Bauer or Breaking Bad without Walter White - but for other series, their central character isn't so much an anchor as dead weight.
Dull, grating, sometimes just outshone by their co-stars - here's five shows we love with five leads we don't.
Ted Mosby on How I Met Your Mother
Ted Mosby is a jerk - sorry, but it's true. The format of How I Met Your Mother sort of makes Ted (Josh Radnor) the de facto lead, but his interminable search for The One is actually the least interesting part of the show. Give us Marshall or Barney any day - we've had enough of Ted mooning over Robin to last a lifetime.
We can't even imagine growing up without James Van Der Beek on our TV screens—but that was almost the case! Last week Dawson's Creek fans nearly lost their minds when James revealed that Adrian Grenier was one of the finalists for the coveted role of movie-obsessed Mr. Leery. Now, we've got the Entourage star's response! "I don't know, you might ask [James]," Grenier tells E! News, "but I imagine that he would've swapped with me to play Vince." Oh snap! Is that a little bit of shade we're sensing, Mr. Chase? E! News caught up with Grenier at Oakley's Learn to Ride event at the Sundance Film Festival in Park City, and the geared-up actor revealed »
