Tom Felton cast in “Full Circle”

Buffy the Vampire Slayer’s Angel (David Boreanaz) and Tom Felton have been cast to team up in DirecTV’s original series Full Circle. Full Circle is a 10-episode drama that features two characters, speaking to one another in a restaurant, during each episode. One character will create a bridge to the next episode, which will feature two different characters. The season finale then brings the audience full circle (pun definitely intended), back to the original two characters–featuring all the characters at once in the series’ final episode. The airing date is still unknown, as the series is still in production. LA Times reports:

Joining Boreanaz and Felton are Kate Walsh, Minka Kelly, Julian McMahon, Keke Palmer, Devon Gearhart, Bill Campbell, Noah Silver, Ally Sheedy, Cheyenne Jackson and Robin Weigert.

The connections are sometimes surprising: McMahon plays a high-powered entertainment lawyer, while Kelly plays his wife. And Boreanaz plays his client, a famous comic with a wild streak, while Palmer plays someone whose life was forever changed as the result of a joke the comic took too far.

Production on the series will begin at the end of May in DirecTV’s Los Angeles Broadcasting Center.

“Full Circle” will be DirecTV’s original series follow-up to “Rogue,” the police drama starring Thandie Newton that debuted in April. Previously, DirecTV had picked up series that began on other networks to finish their runs. It produced three seasons of “Friday Night Lights” when it was going to be canceled by NBC and it produced two seasons of “Damages” when it was in danger of being canceled by FX.

Avatar ImageGraymayne says: Sounds interesting, but I probably won't see it in the U.K.Avatar ImageWeenyOwl says: There is no such word as 'casted.' The past tense of 'cast' is 'cast.'Avatar ImageWeenyOwl says: Sounds like a couple of screenwriters had too many bottles of wine over dinner out, got to talking about the current rage for sequels to action movies and started asking hypothetically, 'Remember that movie My Dinner with André? How could someone do a sequel to that? What if it went on for a whole season?' 'Ah, but you'd have to have two different characters every time or it would get really boring...' Now a real coup would be if they could get Wally Shawn and André Gregory to play two characters connected in some way to all the others and do the series wrap-up episode.Avatar ImageWeenyOwl says: ::waits for someone to declare her idea 'Inconceivable!'::Avatar ImageWON_TWO says: Methinks I shall miss this one...Avatar ImageDeanie says: "Casted"? Really? That is just bad english. Cast is a noun or a verb. As a verb the past tense does not end in "ed". "Casted" is not a word. have they got preschoolers writing here now? That's as bad as saying "drowneded" The past tense od to drown is drowned. The show looks interesting, if they do it well. Poorly done it will be horrid. ;)Avatar Imagemoglet says: The use of 'casted' is unbelievable, surely it's not beyond people to learn how to use the English language correctly. Not sure if I like the sound of the Full Circle, I guess if the writing and acting is top notch it could work. Avatar ImageProfessorPotter says: Be nice, people. Everyone makes mistakes in typing even, JK Rowling. If you look at any author's first draft, its riddled with grammatical errors and spelling mistakes. So give Catherine a break, she works hard giving you fans news of any remote link to Harry Potter despite the stream of Potter news is now way way past its peak. Its right to point the error out so everyone learns but lets be a bit more lighthearted about it. Glad to see this website striving and still giving fans a wonderful outlet to "group together".Avatar ImageCatherine says: I apologize for the error, and it has been corrected. I posted the article at 3 am, and I was putting a lot of weight on auto-check. Which is always dangerous, and should hardly be done. I am sorry. However, I would also like to agree (and thank) Professor Potter. I am human, and I do make mistakes, but I try my best to make sure they happen as little as possible.Avatar Imagemolly43 says: sounds interesting. I wouldn't mind giving it a try. I like tom felton and think he will do a very good job.
