Vanessa Matsui (Cassie the Oracle) will be Ms. Kate Wilder in GRAND ARMY, a TV series that follows sixteen year old Joey Del Marco (Odessa Adlon), and her attempts to cope after being sexually assaulted by three life-long friends during a Friday night out. The screenplay is by Katie Cappiello (based on “Slut: The Play“, which she wrote in 2013) and the first episode is titled “Brooklyn 2020”. Sydney Meyer, who was Helen Blackthorne in four episodes of SHADOWHUNTERS, is also in the cast. Directed by So Yong Kim, Tina Mabry, and Darnell Martin (2 episodes each), GRAND ARMY is currently in production at Netflix Studios in Mississauga, Ontario, and should be released early next year.
Tim Rozon (LOST GIRL’s Massimo) in the Lifetime movie FLASHBACK
There will be plenty of Tim Rozon on TV in the next 30 days. He appears in FLASHBACK, a film about an American soldier (played by Roxanne McKee) who returns from Iraq to discover she’s being blamed for a friendly fire incident that killed two Americans. She becomes the target of an obsessed soldier seeking revenge for their deaths. FLASHBACK will air on on Lifetime Movie Network14 March at 12pm. Rozon’s character Mutt shaved off his beard in the middle of the second season of SCHITT’S CREEK (which premieres on PopTV in the US on 16 March at 8pm), and that might be because of his role as the moustachioed Doc Holiday on WYNONNA EARP, which will premiere on SyFy on 1 April at 10pm, and on CHCH-TV in Canada on 4 April.
Kris Holden-Ried apparently will be working for the Galactic Authority in DARK MATTER Season 2. He tweeted this photo on 4 March saying “Guess what set I was on today…”
Christina Rosato (Sheri the Selkie in Fae Gone Wild) will be Helvetica in iZombie episode 2.16, due to air on 29 March. She will also be Christina in the film MISS HOLLYWOOD, a psychological thriller about two models who become involved in some deadly intrigue. Cinematographer Karim Hussain described the film as an English-language re-make of director Olivier Abbou‘s first major work, which was a 2007 French TV mini-series, but this time “it’s quite a radically different take on the first one, the second half is completely different and it looks completely different as well”.

Inga Cadranel has co-authored (with Gabriel Hogan) an app called Backlot Casting. The app will enble actors to send self-tapes quickly and easily from a mobile device. A beta version will be available soon.
