TV Tidbits: Frankie Muniz, Mark-Paul Gosselaar Move Into ‘Apartment 23’

ALTDon’t Trust the B—- in Apartment 23: ABC can add two more to its expanding roster of celebrities signing up to appear — as themselves — on Apartment 23. Frankie Muniz (Malcolm in the Middle) and Mark-Paul Gosselaar (Franklin & Bash, but let’s be real, Saved By The Bell) will guest on the sitcom, crossing paths with James Van Der Beek (who plays himself) as he attempts to stage a Dawson’s Creek reunion. Muniz and Gosselaar will ostensibly be representing their old shows — whether they’re aching for reunions with their former cast members is another story altogether. [EW]

Touch: Jack Bauer will get some new friends when Said Taghmaoui (Lost) joins the Kiefer Sutherland-led Fox drama as a series regular. Taghmaoui will play “a smart Jesuit priest-turned-killing machine,” according to the report. Also joining the series in a recurring fashion are Adam Campbell (Parenthood) as one of Calvin’s business partners and Ray Santiago (Raising Hope) as a hacker and Martin’s co-worker. [THR]

FX: The cable net has picked up a 13-episode order for The Americans, a Cold War-set series about two KGB spies posing as a married American couple in suburban Washington, D.C. — and their children, who have no idea about their parents’ real identities. The drama will star Keri Russell, Matthew Rhys and Noah Emmerich. [Deadline]

CBS: The Eye has optioned a television series based on a series of books by Michael Koryta about a private investigator “who finds himself in the middle of two police investigations when an old rival is brutally murdered.” [Deadline]

White Collar: Pablo Schreiber (Weeds) will guest on USA’s espionage hit, playing an artist suspected of being involved in large-scale forgery. [TVLine]

Pretty Little Liars: CSI‘s Brandon W. Jones is set to appear on the ABC Family teen soap as Andrew, a major love interest for Spencer. [E!]
