Brendan Fraser has been struggling on the big screen in the last few years after The Mummy dried up and Dwayne Johnson muscled him out of the Journey franchise. That being said, Fraser has a slew of projects lined up for the next few years; count the action-thriller Split-Decision among them. Starring as a father who must protect his children from killer brothers after witnessing a murder, Split-Decision doesn’t sound like the typical light-hearted fantasy fare we’re used to seeing in Fraser’s family films. Hit the jump to see who’ll be filling in the roles of Split-Decision.
Earlier today we reported that Melina Kanakaredes was leaving the spin-off series CSI:NY after a solid six-season run. Though her departure may have something to do with the series possibly running its course (after all, the show is moving to Fridays which isn’t a great day for a series to land on), one thing’s for sure: she has quickly been replaced. At the time of our initial report Sela Ward, who played Stacy Warner on earlier seasons of House M.D., was the frontrunner. An official press release from CBS has confirmed she is joining the cast as “an experienced investigator from Washington, DC, whose work is driven by her empathy for the victim.” Her first episode will be the season premiere this fall.
