Baldwin's in the 'Money'

ABC

Casting — Carrie-Anne Moss has joined helmer Guy Ritchie’s ABC pilot “Suspect.”

Moss will play a smart, plain-speaking cop in the procedural crime drama, joining the previously announced Charles S. Dutton, Michael Ealy and Kathleen Munroe. Skein looks at various suspects in a criminal case.

“Suspect” reps Moss’ first TV project since the mid-1990s, when she first made a name for herself in skeins such as “Models, Inc.” and “FX: The Series.”

She was wooed back to television in part by the chance to work with Ritchie, one of a dozen-plus feature helmers directing pilots this spring.

Moss will next be seen in the D.J. Caruso thriller “Disturbia,” which opens April 13, and “Fido,” due to be released June 15. She’ll star alongside Julia Roberts and Ryan Reynolds in “Fireflies in the Garden,” which begins lensing late next month.

Casting — William Baldwin (“The Squid and the Whale”) has joined “Dirty Sexy Money.” He’ll play Senator Patrick Darling. Upcoming features include Sundance-screened “Adrift in Manhattan” and the comedies “American Fork” and “Park.”

Fox

Casting — Fred Willard (“For Your Consideration”) will join Kelsey Grammer and Patty Heaton in “Action News.” He’ll play the sports anchor.

NBC

Casting — Brian Benben has been added to “Mastersons of Manhattan.” He’ll play Joseph, the son of the Masterson family’s longtime maid.

CW

Pickup — “Hell on Earth,” a half-hour about a not-so-nice girl who gets hit by a bus and gets a second chance in life as a normal girl from the wrong side of the tracks. Jack Amiel and Michael Begler wrote the pilot and will exec produce via CBS Par Network Television.
