We’ve got a number of casting additions for the small screen today. First up, Malin Akerman (Watchmen) will be joining Portia de Rossi (Arrested Development) in the ABC comedy, The Smart One. Written by Don Todd (Ugly Betty), The Smart One follows a brilliant and successful woman (de Rossi) who goes to work for her popular, but less intelligent sister (Akerman).
Eamonn Walker (Oz) is the first actor to be cast in NBC’s Dick Wolf (Law & Order) drama pilot, Chicago Fire, which follows the heroic men and women of the Chicago Fire Department. Finally, from the CW comes Arrow, the television series following the exploits of DC Comics’ Green Arrow. Katie Cassidy (Monte Carlo) has been cast as the female lead opposite Stephen Amell (Private Practice). Hit the jump for more on each project.
