The two actors both were featured in the canceled NBC drama Boomtown awhile back, but now Neal McDonough and Mykelti Williamson are teaming with that shows executive producer Graham Yost on his current series Justified starring Timothy Olyphant. EW reports the two actors will play two villains on the third season of the FX drama with McDonough playing Quarles, a Detroit mobster in a sharp suit who comes to Kentucky with visions of becoming a crimelord and Williamson playing Limehouse, a man who lives in a small black town in Harlan County and who will do whatever it takes, legal or otherwise, to protect his holler. The two characters are said to show up pretty early in the season which is slated to begin sometime in January. The show has been praised with some Emmy love, including a nomination for Timothy Olyphant and win for Margo Martindale last month, so here’s hoping they keep the momentum in the new season.

Details on a new cast member for the second season of Game of Thrones after the jump.

The British series Downton Abbey took home an Emmy last month, and now one its actresses is heading to HBO. EW has word that Rose Leslie has landed a role on Game of Thrones. The actress is said to play Ygritte, a Wilding woman that Jon Snow meets during during his adventures beyond the Wall. The character is described as strong-willed, witty, skilled in battle and survival in the wilderness. An unconventional beauty, skinny but strong with red hair (which the Wildlings consider ‘kissed by fire’).” Likely this means she won’t return to the aforementioned PBS drama, but that fact hasn’t been made clear just yet.
