    Since when did Richard Schiff and Ed Asner sign up? (as per episode summary).

    I knew there were a lot of rumours about Asner but Schiff as well?

    Schiff was rumored to be joining the cast. But it never came to pass. Asner is in the same boat from what I understand.

    Try looking him on TV.Com or doing a Google search. Not played a major recurring part on television in a while however was one of TV's best character actors. Probably most famous for playing Lou Grant.

    Asner was rumored to have signed a deal with NBC to play the character of Wes, but as is now known it was just that a rumor and no one seems to know where the information came from exactly. The whole Schiff thing was also a bad practical joke that popped up about two months ago on a S60 blog and someone submitted the info and I mistakenly approved it.

    I have a question, if we're talking about who plays Wes, when did Judd Hirsch sign to play Wes Mendell? He has a friday night hit show on CBS called Numb3rs is he leaving?

    The character of Wes is just in the pilot--that's why Hirsch is doing it. However, I can see him doing a few guest spots too.

    That's what I thought, but what confused me was that here he is listed as part of the cast and not as a guest star. Thanks for clearing that up.

    I thought i heard the rumour from somewhere more substantial, a mainstream source. Could be having mental block though
