‘Unforgettable’ Ups James Liao And Tawny Cypress To Regulars, ‘Covert Affairs’ Adds Zuleikha Robinson As Recurring

New additions to CBS’ crime drama Unforgettable, James Laio and Tawny Cypress, have been promoted to regulars. The two were originally cast in March for recurring roles on the upcoming second season of Unforgettable. That brings the number of regulars on the show back to 6, with Laio, Cypress and fellow new castmember Dallas Roberts joining returning stars Poppy Montgomery, Dylan Walsh and Jane Curtin. Michael Gaston, Kevin Rankin and Daya Vaidya departed as regulars after Season 1. Laio plays Jay, a detective with expertise in a wide range of technical subjects in the Major Cases Section of the NYPD; Cypress plays Murray, a former decorated FBI agent who begins work at the Major Cases Section of the NYPD. Unforgettable, from Sony TV and CBS Studios, returns July 28.

Homeland‘s Zuleikha Robinson is set to recur on the upcoming fourth season of another spy drama, USA’s Covert Affairs.  She will play Bianca, a D.C. power player who is one of the capitol’s most formidable defense attorneys. With the help of Bianca’s legal skills, Arthur Campbell (Peter Gallagher) plans to combat allegations that could damage the Campbells’ legacy.

  • Hard to imagine any actor having to shift from saying HOMELAND’s dialogue to COVERT AFFAIRS, a show that’s the equivalent of background noise and elevator music.

    • What do you expect from her crack team? It’s an easy get… they are not about working hard.

  • I can’t wait for the return of UNFORGETTABLE! I wish they would have just kept Kevin Rankin on the show, but anyway I am really looking forward to seeing Poppy Montgomery again next month.

  • All the retooling in the world won’t improve Unforgettable. It’s the lowest standard of crime drama on CBS, thanks to plastic Poppy Montgomery and wooden Dylan Walsh. They cancel the wonderful heartfelt Vegas and save this garbage?

    • First of all, UNFORGETTABLE was renewed before VEGAS even debuted. Secondly, UNFORGETTABLE was averaging 14 million viewers a week, whereas VEGAS was around 9. I like both shows, but let’s keep it real.
