Eddie Cibrian, who starred in ABC's "Invasion" last season, has signed on to another series with a complicated back story.
Cibrian has joined the cast of FOX's new drama "Vanished." The former "Third Watch" star will play an FBI agent, the showbiz trade papers report. In other casting news, Bruce Greenwood and Luis Guzman have signed on to "John from Cincinnati," "Deadwood" creator David Milch's next project for HBO.
The cast of "Vanished," which tracks the possible conspiracy behind the disappearance of a senator's wife, has grown some since its pilot was shot in the spring. Cibrian is the third actor to join the show since then, following Josh Hopkins ("Pepper Dennis") and Penelope Ann Miller ("Rudy: The Rudy Giuliani Story").
The show, which premieres in less than two weeks, also stars John Allen Nelson ("24") as the senator, Gale Harold ("Queer as Folk") and Ming-Na ("ER") as the FBI agents assigned to the case and Joanne Kelly as the woman who does the vanishing.
At HBO, Greenwood ("Capote," "Thirteen Days") will star as the patriarch of a surfing family in "John from Cincinnati," which despite its title is set in the Southern California surf culture. Milch is writing the pilot with Kem Nunn, on whose work the script is based.
Guzman ("Boogie Nights," "Luis") will also star. He's also set to co-star with Jeff Goldblum in NBC's midseason drama "Raines"; it's unclear if his casting in "John" will affect that role.Copyright © 2015, Los Angeles Times
