– Anne-Marie Duff has been confirmed as returning to where it all began, rejoining Shameless for its final season! (I’m so keen for this, you have no idea!)
– Michelle Monaghan has been cast opposite Matthew McConaughey and Woody Harrelson in HBO’s True Detective. Each season of True Detective is rumoured to focus on a new mystery and completely different cast- the American Horror Story-effect in action!
– John Hannah, star of Rebus and McCallum (yes, I am that old a fan of him!) has joined the cast of Elementary as Sherlock’s old friend from London.
– And in a bit of reverse-casting, Freema Agyeman has said she will NOT be appearing in any of the Doctor Who 50th Anniversary TV (canon) events. She may still participate in peripheral events (talk-shows, on stage, public appearances and promos etc)
