WHERE'S THE 'STACHE? NEWS

... Are you fan of torture, murder, and unmatched despicability? Then you have a lot in common with The Governor, the new villain coming to the third season of The Walking Dead. He's one of the most vile comic-book characters ever inked, and his jump from the pages to the screen will be portrayed by British actor David Morrissey. And now we have our first look at him! And he doesn't look a thing like The Governor! What do you think? [Click the photo above to see it full-size.]


BUSINESS TIME

... Remember that modern-day Hatfields and McCoys series that suddenly got lots of interest when History's miniseries about the feuding clans set cable records? Well of course NBC, a.k.a. WE FREAK OUT OVER ANYTHING TRENDING, jumped on it! [Deadline Hollywood]

... FX is previewing the second season premiere of Wilfred online (including here on TV.com!) and on on-demand on June 14, two weeks before it airs on FX. Watch it, love it, tell your friends, because this show is great. [FX via press release]

... Cable channel Logo has picked up the American rights to the U.K. series Misfits. The beloved show, about troubled teens who develop super powers, was a hit in its native land and combined the grittiness of Skins with the fantasy of Heroes, except it was better than both of them. Look for it to make its Stateside debut July 19! [EW]


CASTING NEWS

... Body of Proof just farted or something, because it totally cleared the room. Actors John Carroll Lynch, Nicholas Bishop, and Sonja Sohn are all being axed for Season 3, likely because of budgetary concerns. Lynch will move to NBC's new series Do No Harm. [TV Line / TV Line]

... Congratulations, Jon Wellner! After seven years of playing Henry Andrews as a recurring character on CSI, you're finally being promoted to regular for the upcoming season. This is like being that guy who pines for the girl for years and years and jumps from the friendzone to f***buddy in one night. [THR]

... Californication will bring on a pair of Oceanic 815 survivors next season. Maggie Grace and Jorge Garcia (who played Shannon and Hurley on Lost) will both appear in the sixth season. Grace has locked down the recurring role of Faith, a good-girl-turned-bad (who may get spun off into her own series), and Garcia will play a friend from her past. [Showtime via press release]

... Comedian T.J. Miller has been added to Fox's midseason comedy The Goodwin Games, replacing Jake Lacy as Jimmy, the youngest of the three siblings at the core of the show. Becki Newton and Scott Foley also star in this show about two brothers and a sister who inherit their father's fortune if they agree to his terms. [Deadline Hollywood]
