As the summer shows come to an end, the cable networks keep on casting some great guest stars on my favorite shows. Here are some of the familiar faces that I found:
The Glades aired it season finale on a special night â€“ Labor Day â€“ on September 5.Â This episode featured actor Jonathan Adams as a fellow police officer whose life was cut short because of a violent blow to the head by an escaped convict and his brother while actress Danielle Savre appeared as one of a group of hostages (who was actually the girlfriend of the convictâ€™s brother).
Jonathan is probably best known for his roles in Bones and American Dreams, but he has also appeared in episodes of the short-lived series The American Embassy, Womenâ€™s Murder Club, NCIS, Castle, Medium, Crossing Jordan, Desperate Housewives, Boston Legal and 24.
As for Danielle, TV viewers will recognize her as one of the cheerleaders on Heroes, but she has also appeared in Grounded for Life, Summerland, Kaya, CSI: Miami, Charmed and The Closer.Â She also had roles in the films Bring It On: All or Nothing and In The Land of Women.
Prior to that on Sunday, September 4, actress Skyler Day and actor Rick Gonzalez appeared as a wanna-be Midwestern teen hoping for fame and fortune as a teen singer and her less-than-respectable California-based manager, respectively, on TNT’s The Closer.
Skyler appeared in the Nickelodeon series Gigantic, but she has also appeared in episodes of Drop Dead Diva, iCarly, Southland and Sonny with a Chance as well as the made-for-TV movie Who Is Simon Miller.
Meanwhile, Rick is best known for his role in Reaper, but he has also guest starred in Boston Public, Touched By An Angel, Medium, Castle, Lie to Me, The Protector and Dark Blue.Â He also had roles in the box office films In the Land of Elah, The Rookie and War of the Worlds.
Then over on Necessary Roughness on September 7 there was a triple-header of familiar faces with actresses Gail Oâ€™Grady and Liz Vassey as well as actor Linden Ashby all appearing in the same episode.Â Gail played a Martha Stewart-type character who was ordered to take anger management therapy with Dr. Dani while Linden played her â€œright-handâ€ man (and secret boyfriend) Liam. Meanwhile, Liz played the wife of the football team owner.
Gail is obviously best known for her work on NYPD Blue and American Dreams, but she has appeared in shows like China Beach, Matlock, Murder She Wrote, Ally McBeal, Boston Legal, Desperate Housewives, Drop Dead Diva, and Memphis Beat. She has also appeared in the short-lived shows Hot Properties, Hidden Palms and Hellcats.Â Her made-for-TV movies include All I Want for Christmas, Living Out Loud, Lucky 7 and Sex and the Single Mom.
Whereas Linden is best known for his current role on Teen Wolf, he has also appeared in the original Melrose Place, The Young and the Restless, Days of Our Lives and The Gates as well as episodes of CSI, Drop Dead Diva and Army Wives. He also appeared in the made-for-TV movies Mean Girls 2 and Marry Me as well as the box office feature Wyatt Earp.
Then there’s Liz, who is best known for her work on CSI, but also had a cameo in the online sensation Dr. Horrible Sing-Along Blog as well as episodes of ER, Two and a Half Men, Tru Calling and Castle; and was a regular on the short-lived series Brotherly Love, Maximum Bob and The Tick. She has also appeared in the box office film Man of the House and the telefilm The Secrets of Lake Success.
Then over on the season finale of Suits on September 8, actors Chi McBride and Morgan Kelly appeared as the new District Attorney and a former college student who got away with rape and murder (but was eventually caught by Harvey).
Of course, Chi is best known for his work on Human Target, Boston Public and the critically acclaimed series Pushing Daisies. He has also appeared in The John Larroquette Show, House, The Nine and Hawthorne.
Meanwhile, Morgan is best known for his role in the Canadian series Being Erica and the syndicated series Falcon Beach, but he has also appeared in episodes of Flashpoint, Tell Me You Love Me and Angelaâ€™s Eyes.
Lastly, actor Dylan Neal showed up on the September 9 episode of Haven, playing a doctor who was actually the cause of a devastating curse rendered by his ex-wife inside the police station. Dylan is best known for his roles in Blood Ties and Dawson’s Creek (he was Doug, Pacey’s cop brother), but he has appeared on The Bold and the Beautiful, JAG, Sabrina the Teenage Witch, CSI: Miami, Psych, Life Unexpected and Rizzoli & Isles as well as the short-lived shows Pacific Palisades and Hyperion Bay. He has also appeared in the telefilms Ice Road Terror and He Loves Me as well as and the box office films Percy Jackson & the Olympians: The Lightning Thief and 40 Days and 40 Nights.
Those were the familiar faces that I found on my favorite shows for this past week.Â Did you see anyone that you recognized in any of your favorite shows?Â Please share
