CASTING

Dee Bradley Baker has joined the cast of Nickelodeon’s upcoming action-adventure TV movie “Legends of the Hidden Temple,” based on the network’s iconic ‘90s game show of the same name.  Baker, who served as the voice of Olmec in the original show, will return in the new movie to reprise the voice of the legendary talking head, helping guide cast members on the adventure of a lifetime. Baker joins previously announced stars Kirk Fogg, Isabela Moner, Colin Critchley and Jet Jurgensmeyer. The “Legends of the Hidden Temple” TV movie is slated to debut on Nickelodeon in fall 2016.

Brian Austin Green has been cast as a series regular in the upcoming second season of Rosewood.” Green will play Aaron Slade, East Miami Police’s newest member with a mysterious past, who will both challenge and complicate an already messy situation between Dr. Beaumont Rosewood, Jr. (Morris Chestnut) and detective Annalise Villa (Jaina Lee Ortiz). He doesn’t trust anyone and hates the idea of partnerships and teams – which will keep Rosewood and Villa on their toes as they go to great lengths to figure him out.
