Under The Dome – Scoops about Eddie’s Character

Two familiar characters will die in the opener of Dome, which is going beyond King’s book. However, the series also will add new people: Sam Verdreaux (Eddie Cahill), a reclusive man who is the brother-in-law of Big Jim Rennie (Dean Norris); Rebecca Pine (Karla Crome), a teacher who works with Big Jim and brings a science perspective; and Melanie (Grace Victoria Cox), a character pulled from the lake by Julia Shumway (Rachelle Lefevre) just after she throws the mysterious egg into the water at the end of the first-season finale.


Eddie joins the cast of “Under the Dome”

Eddie Cahill is returning to the CBS family, but he’ll have to go Under the Dome to do it.
The former CSI: New York star has been cast in a series regular role as the “reclusive” EMT brother-in-law of Dean Norris’s Big Jim, according to The Hollywood Reporter. Cahill’s character Sam will reportedly form a bond with Rachelle Lefevre’s Julia, and it’s worth noting that a recent installment of Ask Ausiello described him as “the crazy drunk who lives alone in the woods.”


Sources: CBS Cancels CSI: Miami, Renews CSI: NY

It looks like the case of CSI: Miami… (David Caruso removes glasses here) .. is coming to an end after 10 seasons.

Insiders tell TV Guide Magazine that CBS will announce this week that Miami, the second in the CSI franchise, has been canceled — but that the original and NY versions are safe. The move is not a huge surprise; CBS almost canceled one of the shows last year as well, but the two CSI spinoffs earned a last-minute reprieve.

Not this year. CBS has an embarrassment of riches on its schedule, and could afford to let one of the CSIs go, even though they still perform well for the network. At 10 seasons, CSI: Miami is an expensive show to produce, and it has already minted more than enough backend syndication money for all involved.

CSI: Miami debuted in September 2002 and will have aired more than 230 episodes. Sources say there are no plans to shop it elsewhere. Will you miss Horatio Caine and crew?
