Julia Ormond has been cast in CBS’ drama pilot “Three Rivers,” part of a rush of casting at the network.
“Three Rivers” focuses on the organ transplant process, telling every story from three points-of-view: The donor, the recipient and the doctors involved.
According to The Hollywood Reporter, Ormond (“Sabrina”) will play the head of surgery at Three Rivers Hospital, joining “Moonlight” star Alex O’Loughlin in the drama.
Ormond recently co-starred in “The Curious Case of Benjamin Button” and has made multiple appearances on CBS’ “CSI: NY.”
In other CBS casting, Grant Show and Lennon Parham have joined the comedy “Accidentally on Purpose.”
The comedy stars Jenna Elfman as a San Francisco film critic who gets pregnant after a fling with a much younger man. Show, most recently seen on CBS’ “Swingtown” and guesting on ABC’s “Private Practice,” will play the owner of the paper where the critic works. Parham (“Confessions of a Shopaholic”) will play the main character’s sister.
Finally, the CBS comedy “Big D” has added Nat Faxon (“Happy Hour”) and Kelen Coleman (“Fired Up!”) to its cast.
