Breaking Bad Emmy Award winner Anna Gunn and Oscar nominee Jacki Weaver have joined the cast of Fox’s Gracepoint – the American take on UK hit Broadchurch. They join David Tennant, whose role will echo the character he played in the original.
Gunn takes on the role of Detective Ellie Miller, who misses out on a promised promotion but is soon involved in investigating a terrible tragedy with a prickly new partner. Weaver has been cast as Susan Wright, a ‘glowering, mysterious woman who is new to town and lives in the RV park, alone with her dog.’

Tonight’s series premiere of Almost Human (Fox, 8/7C, then Mondays, 8/7C) is a bang-up hour of buddy/cop tropes transplanted thirty-five years into the future, where all human police officers and detectives must be paired with android partners. The result is news kinds of technology, hence new kinds of crimes and new methods of fighting them – and even a new kind of cops.
The idea of teaming a human cop with a robot/android partner isn’t new; there have been a couple of high profile attempts in the past: Mann and Machine on the drama side, and Holmes & Yoyo on the comedy side just off the top of my head. Fox’s Almost Human (Sunday, 8/7C)then Mondays, 8/7C) is, to my mind, not only the best of this unusual sub-genre, it’s one of the best new shows of the Fall 2013 season.
Three of the biggest reasons are the excellent writing and the presence of Karl Urban and Michael Ealy as the human/android partnership. Urban and Ealy recently talked with a group of journalists/bloggers about the show.
