Kris Lemche Lands CW Show Role

Congratulations to good looking Kris Lemche. The actor has landed himself a new role on a new TV show for CW, which is a reboot of Tales from the Dark Side. He will be the main star of the show Newman, who finds himself dealing with events that revolve around the darkside. The show will likely premier next season as the network works on filling up their casting que of the show.

Talk about a different role for the former Emily of New Moon and Joan of Arcadia star. Kris has an impressive resume that does not highlight enough success for his talent. Hopefully CW and Tales from the Dark Side roles will fix that record for him. He needs a lot more acclaim for what he has brought to the work of TV and while CW may be a better fit, we also do not want to forget his fun roles.

He has been a landed immigrant in Canada ever since. Why the fateful encounter with Reno led to a radical (and seemingly overnight) transformation of Moriarty’s
