Claire ForlaniCSI: NY will add Claire Forlani to the cast this fall in a recurring role. To me, Forlani is best remembered for her role in Mallrats, a classic Kevin Smith film, for which I found her performance to be flat and uninspired. She also played a higher profile part opposite Brad Pitt and Anthony Hopkins in Meet Joe Black. I’m not too familiar with her other acting roles, but she will be the latest addition to CSI: NY, playing the new medical examiner, Dr. Peyton Driscoll. Her character will have a history with Gary Sinise’s character, Detective Mac Taylor. Forlani was last seen on the small-screen in TNT’s Nightmares and Dreamscapes, the series based on Stephen King’s short stories. Look for Forlani in the premiere of CSI:NY on September 20th. Her next upcoming film will be For Your Consideration, the latest from comedy genius Christopher Guest (scheduled for a November release).

Rob LoweGood news for Rob Lowe fans—he’s returning to the small screen, starring in the TNT movie A Perfect Day. The movie is an adaptation of Richard Paul Evans’ best-selling novel, and will be part of TNT’s “Johnson & Johnson Spotlight Presentation.” Former Johnson & Johnson features include The Wool Cap and Door to Door.

Michael Wright, head of original programming at TNT said of Lowe, “After having worked with Rob Lowe on previous TNT productions, we are thrilled to have him in the lead role for A Perfect Day. We couldn’t hope for a better actor to bring to the screen this heartwarming drama about one man’s journey through self-discovery.” Lowe’s character is Richard Harlan, who gets fired from his job, writes a novel and becomes an overnight success. His journey allows him to refocus on his life priorities.

Lowe was on the first four seasons of The West Wing, which he earned Emmy and Golden Globe nominations for. Call me crazy, but I never tire of seeing his ageless beauty. Look for A Perfect Day, airing on TNT in December.

Holly HunterHolly Hunter may star in a new TNT cop drama, Grace. The pilot, which was written by Nancy Miller, will focus on a police detective who attempts to redeem her life after a visit from an angel.

Hunter, who is most known for her film roles, won an Academy Award for best actress for The Piano in 1994 and has been nominated four times total. While she has appeared in numerous TV-movies, this is her first attempt at a television series.

After TNT’s success with crime drama, The Closer - starring another actress famous for her film roles, Kyra Sedgwick - it is no surprise that they are interested in Grace.

TNT's The CloserThe Closer, starring Kyra Sedgwick, has made a big splash kicking off the summer television season.  First, its second-season premiere was commercial free.  Second, it was a good show.  And third, it blew away the competition with 8.3 million viewers, the most-watched scripted series ever on basic cable.  Historically, “the only thing that’s owned by broadcast is scripted series,” says TBS and TNT’s chief operating officer Steve Koonin to USA Today. “Now, with The Closer, Nip/Tuck and Monk, that’s not true anymore.”  Just to put into perspective just how many viewers watch The Closer try this on for size: the show had an audience that matched HBO’s biggest series, The Sopranos.

Joining TNT, USA, and FX in the scripted game are Spike!, ABC Family, E! and TBS.  All four have several scripted dramas shows that could hit your TV as early as this fall.
