Casting Roundup: "Reaper," "Nip/Tuck," "Idol"

Casting Roundup: "Reaper," "Nip/Tuck," "Idol"


  • Missy Peregrym — most recently seen as Candice on "Heroes"has been cast in the new CW series "Reaper" as the female lead, a love interest of the slacker-boy who becomes the devil's bounty hunter. I'm a little sad about this, both because Peregrym was pretty grating in "Heroes" and because when I recently watched the "Reaper" pilot, I really liked Nikki Reed in the role. But I thought Peregrym was great in the underappreciated "Life As We Know It," so I'm still a little excited to see how this works out.
  • Julia McNamara will be back on "Nip/Tuck" this season after all. Actress Joely Richardson apparently asked to leave the show while her daughter suffered health problems, but with her daughter now doing better, Richardson wanted to come back — and she's getting a sizable raise, to boot. She's scheduled to be in at least 15 of the upcoming season's 22 episodes.

  • Think you can sing? "American Idol" has announced its search for a new crop of wannabe superstars, with auditions in seven cities starting July 30. If you live in San Diego, Atlanta, Omaha, Philly, Charleston, Miami or Dallas, you're in luck.
