Weekend wrap

10 days left until the Caprica Season 1.5 DVD is out.

A quick round of cast updates:

Alessandra Torresani starts shooting a new pilot this week, called Circling the Drain. It's a single-camera comedy about a reporter who gets demoted from the style section to the obits desk at a newspaper. You can read a message from Alessandra about the project on her blog.

Deadline writes, "The Circling the Drain presentation will be completed by Jan.1, giving the project a jump start on the broadcast pilot season where production usually starts in February. While the project was originally envisioned as a cable show, the producers are now looking to cast a wider net for it."

Esai Morales has wrapped filming the webseries Los Americans. The first photos from his new movie, Gun Hill Road, which premieres at Sundance in January, showed up this week at Daemon's Movies. There is also an interesting article about the film at Eclectique 916.

Polly Walker will make her first appearance on Sanctuary next Friday in episode 3x10, "The Hollow Men." Spoiler TV has the teaser (with Polly) and a sneak peek with Ryan Robbins and Christopher Heyerdahl.

Magda Apanowicz tweeted that she is filming a new Team Unicorn FTW project.

Scott Porter is back on Friday Night Lights next Wednesday at 9 pm in episode 5x07, "Perfect Record." Spoiler TV has the teaser. Patrick Massett and John Zinman have been nominated for a Writer's Guild Award for their work on the show, which is now entering its final run of episodes on DirecTV. 

Both Scott Porter and Sasha Roiz are on Buddy TV's list of TV's 100 Sexiest Men of 2010.

Tomorrow's episode of CSI: Miami, with Peter Wingfield guest starring, might get delayed because of football. David Caruso has swooped down on YouTube to say he'll make sure you know when the episode airs in time.

Leah Gibson did an interview for Twilight: Eclipse recently. You can watch it here. You can also see the teaser for The Fence, a short film she did with Matt Hamilton that will be out next year, on YouTube.

Also, her fans tweet (and IMDb confirms) that Rise of the Apes, the prequel to the Planet of the Apes series, with James Franco, Brian Cox, Freida Pinto, John Lithgow, Tom Felton and Andy Serkis, will be released on June 24, 2011. Caprica's James Pizzinato is also in it.

Three Inches, the pilot James Marsters shot with Stephanie Jacobsen and Naoko Mori (Toshi from Torchwood, you'll see her in Private Practice 4x11) for Syfy a few months ago, didn't get a series order, but - hold onto your sanity - Mark Stern says it still might. Deadline has the gory details about the show possibly getting retooled and the actors' contracts getting extended. In the meantime, you can see James on Hawaii Five-0 this Monday at 10 pm on CBS. Spoiler TV has a new promo.

Carmen Moore (that's Fidelia if you've seen the last few episodes) has recently wrapped a film called Yesterday, Today and Tomorrow. You can see some stills on her Facebook page. She will also be a regular on Blackstone, a new show that kicks off early next year in Canada. (Hiro Kanagawa is credited as story editor.) For details and updates, hit Facebook.

Mike Dopud tweeted that he, too, is working on This Means War. Panou and Aleks Paunovic will also be in it. And Elisabeth Rosen, grandpa's foe from "The Dirteaters," will have a supporting role in his new movie, In the Name of the Father 2.

More updates as they come on Twitter, as usual.
