Neve Campbell Gets Role in NBC's The Philanthropist

Neve Campell Could Return to TV in The Philanthropist

Another Salinger kid could be coming back to TV. Neve Campbell, the former Julia Salinger on Party of Five, is reportedly close to taking a starring role in The Philanthropist, a new NBC drama.

The show stars James Purefoy as a "renegade billionaire" named Teddy Rist, who uses his massive fortune to help others around the world. (Seems appropriate for our current times, no?) Campbell would play the wife of Teddy's business partner, Phillip, played by Jesse Martin. Her character runs the two men's charitable foundation — and it would seem she might have feelings for both of them, as The Hollywood Reporter notes that her character "has strong chemistry with Teddy."

Save for a few episodes of Medium, Campbell hasn't been on TV much since Party of Five ended in 2000, and I think she'd be a welcome presence now. The Philanthropist has had its share of troubles — the original producers left the show in the Spring after NBC found their original vision for the show to be too dark — but I'm curious about this one and glad to see it back on track. What do you think? Would you like to see Campbell on a regular basis again?

Yay on James, yay on Jesse, but nay on Neve. I never could get used to her stilted way of talking.

I hope she makes a return to TV. Party Of Five is probably one of my all time fav shows so I welcome any of those stars to come back to TV. She's a fairly good actress, too.

I always liked her (thanks to the Scream movies), but never got into Party of 5. I think she's a strong, capable actress, and if the previews are compelling, I may give the show a whirl...Plus I liked James in Rome! Of course I don't think there will be much nudity from him on NBC.

well i guess that it could be a good role for her to take on, and i hope that she gets a more constant thing. i like her and i think that she's got the acting chops the plot sounds like it could be interesting too - especially given where we are in our economy and how much we're all suffering for $$
