The new CBS drama Stalker has just added two more names to its cast, as Warren Kole (The Following, Common Law) and Erik Stocklin (Mistresses) have both landed recurring roles on the first season of Kevin Williamson’s latest project.
Stalker stars Dylan McDermott (Hostages) and Maggie Q (Nikita), both of whom play detectives in the Los Angeles Threat Assessment Unit tasked with investigating cases of stalking. Kole, who has worked with Williamson in the past, will be playing Detective Trent Wilkes, the lead detective in the Robbery Homicide Division of the Lapd who finds himself in a turf war with McDermott’s character, Jack. Stocklin, who had a small part in the pilot as Perry, an introverted college sophomore, will be reprising his role on the show in a multi-episode arc.

Police didn't give any other details. Herrera says detectives from the agency's elite Robbery Homicide Division are investigating the allegations. Phone and email messages left with Bieber's attorney, Howard Weitzman, and publicist, Melissa Victor, weren't immediately returned. Prosecutors are still considering whether to file charges against Bieber over an egg-throwing incident in January that damaged a neighbor's home in Calabasas. Copyright © 2014 The Associated Press.
