THE HOLLYWOOD REPORTER – WGN America is going straight-to-series with Underground, tapping Christopher Meloni to star in the slave drama.

Additionally, Friday Night Lights alum Jurnee Smollett-Bell, Aldis Hodge (Rectify) and Jessica De Gouw (Arrow, Dracula) will join the cast of the 10-episode drama. Anthony Hemingway (The Wire, Treme) will direct the first two episodes.

The L.A.-based cable network first announced it was developing Underground in August, when it went straight to series with Outsiders, its Appalachia-set 13-episode series.

From creator Misha Green (Sons of Anarchy) and Joe Pokaski (Heroes), the Sony Pictures Television and Tribune Studios entry follows the slaves who set foot on the fabled Underground Railroad, the secret network of men and women who risked their lives aiding them and the mercenaries tasked with hunting them down at any cost. Executive producers include Green, Pokaski, Weed Road Pictures’ Akiva Goldsman, Tory Tunnell and Joby Harold of Safehouse Pictures.

Law & Order: SVU alum Meloni — who marks his return to drama following last season’s short-lived comedy Surviving Jack — will play August, a secretive mercenary who walks a tightrope between survival and morality. Meloni had been getting multiple pilot offers this season, for both drama and comedy.

Finally we have some official news from ‘Arrow’ executive producer Marc Guggenheim about Jessica’s character “The Huntress”!

Hey all.

First, thanks to the many, many, many — MANY — people on Tumblr and Twitter who’ve reached out to ask me about if, when, and how the amazingly talented and simply amazing Jessica De Gouw would be returning to Arrow.
And thank you for being patient with me as I continued to promise this update.

I have good news, bad news, and wait-and-see news.

First, the bad news…

We’d been discussing an episode that would return Helena Bertinelli to Arrow for Season 3, but it didn’t come together for a variety of reasons having nothing to do with Jessica or her willingness to return. As most of you know, despite doing 23 episodes a season — god help me — we still somehow manage to run out of room to tell certain stories (e.g., Felicity’s parents). Unfortunately, Helena’s episode in Season 3 was one of those casualties of our lack of real estate. We value Jessica and the character she created too much to waste both of them on a story we can’t give proper attention to.

Now for the good news…

Tomorrow, Helena/The Huntress will make her return to Arrow in comics form as part of our ongoing Season 2.5 series. Unlike her previous appearance in 2.5, this time the Huntress’ return is not a hoax, not a dream, and not a hallucination.

Arrow Deadline Gallipoli Interviews these final hours
27th Jul

NEWS.COM.AU – Rachael Taylor, Margot Robbie, The Hunger Games’ Stef Dawson … rising star Jessica De Gouw has joined a growing list of Aussie actresses that have found Hollywood easier to crack than their own, homegrown film industry.

Like most “overnight sensations,” the 26-year-old West Australian would like to think that she at least paid some of her dues.

But even De Gouw is surprised by the speed with which her career took off after she moved to Los Angeles two years ago.

After landing her first screen role in Southern Star TV series The Sleepover Club at the tender age of 16, De Gouw decided that, in the interests of career longevity, she should first study her craft at Curtin University before attempting the difficult feat of making it as a professional actor.

On graduation, she moved to Sydney to look for work.

“I did bit and bobs of TV and film,’’ says the actress during a break from filming TV series Deadline Gallipoli with Sam Worthington and Hugh Dancy.

“But it was hard to crack so I thought I would just take the leap. I first went to LA in mid-2012 – packed a bag and went over there.”

THE AUSTRALIAN – Sam Worthington’s Deadline Gallipoli miniseries begins shooting in Adelaide tomorrow with a stellar cast including UK actors Charles Dance — best known as Tywin Lannister in Game of Thrones — and Hugh Dancy, alongside Australian actors Ewen Leslie, Bryan Brown and Rachel Griffiths.

The four-hour TV miniseries co-produced by Worthington, tells the story of the Gallipoli campaign through the eyes of Australian war correspondents Charles Bean (Joel Jackson) and Keith Murdoch (Ewen Leslie), photographer Philip Schuler (Sam Worthington) and Britain’s Ellis Ashmead Bartlett (Hugh Dancy). Charles Dance arrives next week to play the British General Sir Ian Hamilton who heads the British command at Gallipoli. Worthington is not expected in Adelaide until the following week.

In rehearsal late last week Hugh Dancy, who is married to US actor Claire Danes, said he came into the role knowing relatively little about the Anzacs. In his coverage of the Gallipoli campaign, British journalist Bartlett wrote of the bravery of the Australian soldiers and is credited with starting the Anzac legend.
