Get ready for a couple of fresh faces - and one familiar one - in the spring and summer lineup of television dramas.
HBO’s vampire series “True Blood” continues to attract new blood. “Southland" co-star Kevin Alejandro will be appearing on the series as an orderly who gets involved with line cook Lafayette. Because Lafayette's plotline isn't included in the Charlaine Harris series of books on which the show is based, we're all excited to see how their romance pans out.
According to The Hollywood Reporter, Alejandro will continue to appear on “Southland,” which will air on TNT starting January 12 after moving from its previous home at NBC.
Julian Morris, who played Dr. Andrew Wade during the final season of medical drama “ER,” will be joining the cast of “24” as a CTU agent.
And Kim Raver, best known for turns on “Lipstick Jungle” and “24,” will become a regular on the ABC drama “Grey’s Anatomy.” After enjoying a role as recurring character Dr. Teddy Altman, Raver is expected to appear in all but one of the show’s remaining episodes this season.
