More guest casting news for your Friday afternoon, this time involving DC favorite "Supernatural". Jason Dohring ("Ringer", "Moonlight", "Veronica Mars") will be appearing in the 12th episode of the show's seventh season as Chronos, the God of Time.
Not much else is known about the ep except that it'll be airing in mid-January, 2012, but we should be getting the full synopsis from The CW soon.
In the meantime here's another look at tonight's episode "How to Win Friends and Influence Monsters".
Episode 7.09 "How to Win Friends and Influence Monsters" (11/18/11 Air Date; 9:00-10:00 Pm):
It’S A Jersey Devil Of A Time — Sam (Jared Padalecki), Dean (Jensen Ackles) and Bobby (Jim Beaver) become actual hunters, in the true sense of the word, when they set up camp in a New Jersey state park to track a creature that has been attacking people in the woods. The townsfolk claim »

After an run on CBS's gone-too-soon vampire series, "Moonlight," underrated actor Jason Dohring went under the radar for a while, so we're glad that he's back with a vengeance. The "Veronica Mars" bad boy has been our favorite part of Sarah Michelle Gellar's "Ringer" for the last few weeks, and now he's headed to another CW favorite, "Supernatural."
As TVLine reports, Dohring will appear in a January 2012 episode of "Supernatural" as the God of Time, Chronos. He's often portrayed with a long, gray beard -- but we're guessing that if you were the boss of time, you'd turn the clock back on the aging process a bit, too.
Chronos is responsible for the episode's time travel aspect -- in the episode, we'll go back in time to meet FBI agent Eliot Ness (Nicholas Lea), who wasn't just a Prohibition-enforcing fed, but, as it turns out, also a supernatural hunter. »

For anyone who hasn’t discovered Kim Harrison or her Hollows series of novels, you are missing out. The novels detail the misadventures of Rachel Morgan, a witch who works as a runner (private investigator) in Cincinnati. In this alternate universe, “Inderlanders” (witches, vampires, werewolves, etc.) have lived among us unnoticed until the mid-twentieth century, when the T4 Angel virus attached itself to a flaw in genetically manipulated tomatoes, killing a quarter of the human population – an event known as “The Turn”. Biogenetic engineering was outlawed, and humans developed a fear of tomatoes. Inderlanders, immune to the virus, were brought out in the open, and live a sometimes uneasy existence alongside humans.
To help keep law and order, there are two law enforcement agencies that deal with problems involving the two groups: The I.S. (Inderland Security) and the human run Fib. In the first novel – Dead Witch Walking – Rachel quits the I. »
When a show tries to balance two seemingly disparate elements and combine them into one unusual new creation, it's hard not to get a little nervous. Creativity and originality is always something to be encouraged, especially as network TV is slowly becoming more adventurous, but when is something creative and unique and when is it jumbled and incoherent? It takes a certain feathery touch from the powers that be to keep a show's highly individualized identity sacred while making sure it's fairly accessible and tells a good, solid story in the process.
After watching the pilot episode of Grimm, the latest creation from frequent collaborators David Greenwalt (Moonlight, Buffy the Vampire Slayer) and Jim Kouf (Ghost Whisperer, Angel), I'm still a little unsure if it quite knows how to balance both elements of its identity. Throughout the episode, you're shifted between a fairly commonplace procedural, headed by detectives Nick Burhardt »

With a few notable exceptions such as Insidious and Paranormal Activity 3, it's been a dismal year at the multiplex for horror. So what are fans supposed to do, especially on this holiest of all holiday weekends, Halloween? Turn to television of course, where the likes of "The Walking Dead", "Dexter", "American Horror Story", "Supernatural", "The Vampire Diaries", and even "The Secret Circle" and BBC America's "Bedlam" are kicking all sorts of genre ass. And a new entry arrives this Friday, October 28th, vying for your attention: NBC's "Grimm". Is it worth your time considering everything else there is to choose from?
We say resoundingly, "Yes!" From the minds of Jim Kouf and David Greenwalt, "Grimm" is everything a fan of both police procedurals and monster movies could want -- with a healthy dose of fairy tale magic sprinkled in. Greenwalt worked on "Buffy the Vampire Slayer", "Angel", "The X-Files »

NBC has bought Vanish, a mystery drama from Moonlight co-creator Trevor Munson, Sony TV and Sam Raimi and Josh Donen’s studio-based Star Road banner. Michael Dinner, who is under an overall deal at Sony, will direct the potential pilot. Written by Munson, Vanish centers on a man with a mysterious past who protects deserving people from danger, and helps them disappear. Munson will executive produce with Sam Raimi, Donen and Dinner, while Robert Zotnowski, who runs Star Road’s TV development, also is expected to produce. The project, which was put together at Star Road, reunites Zotnowski and Munson; Zotnowski was a drama development executive at CBS when Munson co-created with Ron Koslow the cult vampire series Moonlight starring Alex O’Loughlin. Munson’s first novel Angel Of Vengeance, an early incarnation of what became the impetus for Moonlight, came out earlier this year. He is repped by Verve and manager Kevin Donahue. »

Chaiken and Silver will executive produce with Silver for Warner Bros. TV where Silver’s TV company is based. The deal reunites Chaiken, Silver and CBS.

Geeks, start your engines! We're still mad at The CW for canceling "Veronica Mars" in the first place, but the network has taken a step toward redemption by casting Jason Dohring (Aka Logan Echolls, the most endearing possible sociopath teenager ever) in "Ringer."
In his recurring role first reported by EW, Dohring will play Mr. Carpenter, a teacher at a Manhattan school attended by Juliet (Zoey Deutsch), the step daughter of Siobhan -- one of Sarah Michelle Gellar's two characters. Word is, Mr. Carpenter takes it upon himself to help Juliet, a troubled (but very privileged) teen whose drug issues land her in some hot water in the first episode.
Basically, this is the next best thing to getting one of Gellar's "Buffy the Vampire Slayer" co-stars to cameo. We last saw Dohring as a vampire in "Moonlight," the CBS show that came, unfortunately, just a smidge too early »
Have you been waiting for a Veronica Mars comeback? Well, you're in luck. Kind of! Kristen Bell is coming back to TV (finally!) on Showtime's House of Lies, Max Greenfield (a.k.a. the always smilin' Deputy Leo!) is starring in Fox's endearing and hilarious new comedy New Girl and Fox just green-lit a new comedy from Vm creator Rob Thomas. All is right in the world, especially because the news broke today that a certain bad boy/vampire is coming on board Sarah Michelle Gellar's Ringer... Logan Echolls himself, Jason Dohring, is joining the cast of the new CW drama. The Veronica Mars and Moonlight fan favorite has been cast in the recurring role of Mr. Carpenter, a high school teacher »
Jason Dohring is returning to his old haunt, The CW.

EW has learned exclusively that Jason Dohring will recur as Mr. Carpenter, a high school teacher at the new school attended by Juliet (Zoey Deutch), the stepdaughter of Manhattan socialite Siobhan Martin (Gellar). The sexy thriller — which features Buffy the Vampire Slayer’s Gellar playing twins — will bow Sept. 13. It also stars Lost’s Nestor Carbonell as an FBI agent.

That which TVLine first told you about way back in February has come to fruition: Modern Family is pulling the trigger on a Lily recast, as Cam and Mitch’s bambino gets aged up a bit for Season 3. The casting call (cited by E! Online) seeks tykes to play “Asian, 3- to 4-year-old” Lily, but if you ask us, when dealing with a hit like Modern Family, there’s a primo opportunity here to widen the net and go big. For example….

Stargate Universe was a tricky venture, but a risk I'm glad I got to see for as long as it lasted. The show drew heavy criticism from many franchise fans almost immediately, and never quite got the attention it needed, but it was an entertaining ride.
The second, and final, season found our crew battling for control of Destiny, continuing efforts to get home, and running into several time travel misadventures. The dark and stormy visuals continued, and the clashes among those trapped on the alien ship still didn't make for a very happy home.
While occasionally rather screwier in its plot developments than necessary, and with some characters who are less than fully realized, the show delivers a wild creativity you don't run into very often.
I suspect that the show's general aim was its own downfall, as it tried to create a spin on an existing niche franchise »

CBS series "Moonlight" won a People's Choice award in 2008 so it was obviously popular. Hopefully all those voters will check out the book on which it was based, Angel of Vengeance. While the adventures of Mick St. John provided pretty decent television, it was quite a bit more enjoyable following Mick Angel around the dirty Hollywood streets.
Mr. Dark: Tell us a bit about how you went from the novel, Angel of Vengeance, to creating a TV show based on the story instead of publishing the novel?
Trevor Munson: After working in Hollywood for a while, I decided to take some time away to try my hand at writing novels. Having gone down a promising, but ultimately dead-end road with a previous unpublished crime novel, »
