Esai Morales cast in 17th Precinct, Paula Malcomson guest stars on Fringe tonight

Great news today. Esai Morales is the first Caprica actor (and second Adama) to be cast in 17th Precinct. He'll be joining James Callis, Tricia Helfer and Jamie Bamber. Here is the report from Deadline:

Esai Morales has joined the cast of Ron Moore's NBC drama pilot 17th Precinct. Set in a city ruled by magic, it revolves around the workings of the 17th, headed by Detective Chief Inspector Wilder Blanks (Eamonn Walker). Morales, repped Innovative and Brillstein, will play his second in command, Lt. Liam Butterfield.

VancouverIsAwesome.com has posted a report from the set to go with those pics that showed up a few days ago.

In other pilot news, Mike Dopud is filming the one for Exit Strategy (CIA action procedural for Fox, with Ethan Hawke, Megan Dodds and Tom Sizemore).

Final reminder: Paula Malcomson guest stars on Fringe tonight (9 pm, Fox). There are a couple of sneak peeks (without Paula) at Fox.com.

If you're in NYC, you can catch Motherland, a new drama with Fran├žoise Yip (Desiree Willow), that opened there today. More on that at The New York Times.

Urgency, a thriller with Luciana Carro, Jeffrey Combs from Deep Space Nine and The 4400, and Brian Austin Green from The Sarah Connor Chronicles, was released on DVD this week.

And it looks like Michelle Forbes, Richard Harmon and Kacey Rohl aren't the only familiar faces that will appear in The Killing. According to TV Guide, Genevieve Buechner and Callum Keith Rennie (BSG's Leoben) are in the pilot.

Here is the promo for the next episode of The Good Wife, with Scott Porter:
