TV News Wrap: Wednesday June 22
- Desperate Housewives will be adding another male regular to the cast in Season 8 (on top of the already great addition of Jonathon Cake as Bree’s new love interest).
- Hawaii Five-O will also bag another Lost alumnus in the form of Terry O’Quinn (who played John Locke in the hit ABC show). It’s also good to see him on TV in some capacity after the Marc Cherry-helmed Hallelujah pilot fell through earlier this year.
- Mad Men has locked down its most valuable asset in Jon Hamm for another three seasons- virtually assuring that the show will run through to Season 7. However, its future after that is on very shaky ground, with the strong word being that it won’t continue much further after its seventh season.
- The Walking Dead has cast (another) racist survivor for its second season, set to return in October 2011. His name is Otis and will be played by Pruitt Taylor Vince of The Mentalist fame.
