The casting for Fox’s Batman prequel series Gotham continues as Donal Logue has been picked to play Harvey Bullock, a detective on the Gotham police, one with a confusing history thank to all those continuity reboots at DC Comics.
The cast of Sharknado 2 has added a handful of actors including Vivica A. Fox, Judah Freidlander, Mark McGrath, Judd Hirsch (playing a cabbie, see what they did?), Kelly Osbourne and, uh, Andy Dick. In a few of those cases, I suspect the casting is the result of a “Which celebrity would you like to see eaten by a shark? (Yes, we already know about Tara Reid.)” survey.
Yes, there is a change. »

Brianna Brown ("General Hospital") will recur as Kelly Badillo, the wife of murdered Juan Badillo (Mike's former handler, killed by Briggs in Season 1).
