Chloe Sevigny The Mindy Project

Chloe Sevigny Plays the Ex-Game: After getting her limbs torn off on American Horror Story, Chloe Sevigny was probably relieved when she landed her next gig: she’ll be playing Danny’s (Chris Messina) ex-wife on the very recently renewed Fox sitcom The Mindy Project. Sevigny’s character is an accomplished war photographer named Christina, who comes to town to wine and dine Danny… again. She’s on board for at least three episodes, which will begin airing in April.

Lost and Found: Lost star Naveen Andrews is heading back to TV on his former network. The actor has signed on to play a British agent who helps a man try to free his wife after she’s imprisoned overseas following a political uprising. [Deadline] 

Angus T. Jones Gets Bakula’d on 2.5 Men: Yep, you heard us right — Angus T. Jones is still on Two and a Half Men.  And the Bible-thumping teen’s character, Jake, is about to meet some competition in the romance department — competition in the form of former Quantum Leap star Scott Bakula. Bakula will play an auto dealership tycoon on the April 4th episode of the long-running series, and he will interfere with Jake’s love life in a surprising way. [TVLine]

The Walking Dead Meets The Exorcist: You wish! The closest we’ll get to Linda Blair’s spinning head on TV is Robert Kirkman‘s new comic book and horror series combo, set in the world of exorcisms. Kirkman is developing the script for Fox International Channels, and it will focus on a young man who has been “plagued by possession since he was a child. Now an adult, he embarks on a spiritual journey to find answers but what he uncovers could mean the end of life on Earth as we know it.” The project still needs a network, but given Kirkman’s reputation, we’re not too worried about a pilot order.

Fringe Creator Nabs Lili Taylor for New Pilot:Woohoo! Six Feet Under actress Lili Taylor has been cast as the female lead in J.H. Wyman’s (Fringe) yet-untilted pilot, a buddy cop show set in the future. In Wyman’s world, all LAPD officers are partnered with highly evolved human-like androids. It centers on the pairing of cop John Kennex and his android partner Dorian (Michael Ealy). Taylor will play the police captain, so yay for future android feminism! [Deadline]

The Voice Champ Falls Flat: Rascal Flatt, that is! Season 3 winner Cassadee Pope has found success in the country world, and now she’s taking her show on the road. Pope will tour with the Grammy Award-winning trio Rascal Flatts on their Changed tour this summer. The singer tweeted, “Incredibly excited to announce I will be supporting the Rascal Flatts tour this summer. I’ll be playing right before the Band Perry. Yay!” Yay, indeed. [Hollywood Reporter]
