The CW’s iZOMBIE Pilot Casts Three Roles; Michelle Harrison Joins THE FLASH As Nora Allen

L-R: Malcolm Goodwin, David Anders, Alexandra Krosney
The CW’s adaptation of DC/Vertigo’s iZombie has officially cast three of its leads. According to Deadline, Malcolm Goodwin (Breakout Kings), David Anders (Alias), and Alexandra Krosney (Last Man Standing) have joined the network’s latest comic book pilot. Goodwin will play a police detective, while Anders plays the villain Blaine, who is described as “an entitled rich kid who bites off more than he can chew in the drug business.” Krosney’s character, Peyton, is the best friend and roommate of the yet-to-be-cast protagonist, Liv. Peyton is said to be “baffled by Liv’s recent behavior and feels like they’re drifting apart.” More casting news is expected to come soon. iZombie is targeting a Fall 2014 debut.
We also have a new addition to the cast of The Flash, The CW’s other high profile DC pilot. Deadline reports that Emily Owens, MD actress Michelle Harrison has joined the Arrow spin-off as Nora Allen, Barry’s (Grant Gustin) deceased mother. The character is said to be a guest starring/recurring role, so the potential series will likely be flashback heavy not unlike Arrow. The Flash also stars Candice Patton as Iris West, Jesse L. Martin as Detective West, Rick Cosnett as Eddie Thawne, Danielle Panabaker as Caitlin Snow, Carlos Valdes as Cisco Ramon, Tom Cavanagh as Harrison Wells, and John Wesley Shipp as an unknown character. A Fall 2014 premiere is also expected.
