Tricia Helfer will co-star on Fox’s drama pilot “Inseparable,” while Michaela McManus has joined the cast of NBC’s “Law & Order: SVU” as a regular, says The Hollywood Reporter.
“Inseparable,” from ABC Studios and writer/executive producer Shaun Cassidy, is a modern-day Jekyll and Hyde tale about Justin/Clyde (Lloyd Owen), a partially paralyzed forensic psychiatrist with a split personality whose alter ego is a charismatic criminal.
Helfer (“Battlestar Galactica”) will play Mason Wicks, a psychiatrist who evaluates suspects for the police department.
Also cast in the pilot is Morgan Turner as Justin’s daughter Emily.
On “SVU,” from Wolf Films and UMS, McManus will play a new assistant district attorney. Her character will succeed the previous ADAs on the show played by Stephanie March and, most recently, Diane Neal, who left at the end of last season.
