Here’s the latest casting news from the world of television:

  • New CW series The Flash will add Jesse L. Martin (Law & Order) to star alongside Grant Gustin.
  • Patrick J. Adams (Suits) and Jason Isaacs (Awake) will join NBC’s Rosemary’s Baby mini-series.
  • Rashida Jones (Parks and Recreation) will topline Tribeca, a comedy pilot from Steve Carell set up at TBS.

Hit the jump for more on each project. 

jesse-l-martin-the-flashFirst up from THR is news that Martin will join The Flash as Detective West.  The character will act as a surrogate father for Gustin’s Barry Allen.  Described as “an honest, blue-collar cop [and] a soulful, funny and caring father to Iris — Barry’s potential love interest — West came up through the foster care system and took Barry in after his mother’s slaying and father’s imprisonment. He believes in Barry and supports his efforts to prove his father’s innocence.”

Deadline reports that Adams and Isaacs will join Rosemary’s Baby.  Adams will play the male lead opposite Zoe Saldana, while Isaacs will play warlock/coven-leader Roman Castevet, a role played by Sidney Blackmer in Roman Polanski’s 1968 feature adaptation.  The story “centers on Rosemary Woodhouse (Saldana), a young wife and would-be mother who, with her husband Guy (Adams), moves into a Paris apartment that has a dark past.  After finally getting pregnant, she becomes increasingly suspicious that both her husband and their mysterious neighbors have ulterior motives about the future of her child.”

Also from Deadline is news that Jones will lead Tribeca, “a satirical look at a police procedural anchored by Angie Tribeca (Jones), an outspoken 10-year veteran of the LAPD’s elite RHCU (Really Heinous Crimes Unit). The project explores an eccentric but brilliant group of people who investigate crime, reveal way too much personal information, and refuse to rest until justice has been served…sort of.”  Jones’ title character is a lone wolf who isn’t thrilled with the prospect of working with a partner.
