TV News Roundup: ‘Property Brothers’ Get Spinoff, ‘Justified’ Alum Cast on Showtime’s ‘Dice’

HGTV’s Property Brothers are heading to the ranch for a new spinoff, Showtime’s Andrew Dice Clay series “Dice” has added a new guest star, and more in today’s TV news roundup…

Casting news:

Michael Rapaport will guest star on Showtime’s upcoming Andrew Dice Clay comedy series “Dice,” Variety has learned exclusively.

The “Justified” and “Friends” alum has been cast as Bobby B., one of Dice’s oldest friends and whipping boys. He has always been known as “Bobby The Mooch” because he never had a dime to his name, but now, Bobby has come into some serious money, and he’s going to throw enough cash around that he kills that nickname stone dead — a decision that just makes Dice simmer with fury until it boils over.

Nathan Darrow (“House of Cards”) joins Fox’s “Gotham” as Victor Fries, better known to DC Comics fans as the cryogenics engineer who eventually becomes villain Mr. Freeze. Although ferociously smart and eminently capable in his work, Victor struggles to make meaningful connections with another other than his wife, Nora — who happens to have tragically fallen ill with a terminal disease. With his love for his wife knowing no bounds and her condition worsening, Victor goes to extreme measures to figure out a way to freeze her before she dies. This journey leads to his transformation into the legendary Mr. Freeze.

Barbara Hershey is returning to ABC’s “Once Upon a Time” for the series’ 100th episode, reprising her role as Queen of Hearts (aka Regina’s mother, Cora). Entertainment Weekly reports that it’s unclear if the character will appear in a flashback or if there’s something larger planned.

“Lip Sync Battle” has landed a major player for Season 2: Beyoncé will throw down against Channing Tatum in the next season of the Spike TV favorite, reports Entertainment Weekly.
