Today's TWoP News: March 9, 2011

Hey now! Get ready for some awesome casting news

NBC's Bent has decided that it needs a wacky dad, and one played by Jeffrey Tambor. Now all you Arrested Development fans, don't get excited about the show just yet. Just remember Tambor also did that show Twenty Good Years since then.

Natalie Dormer (Anne Boleyn on The Tudors) has been cast for ABC's Poe. Dormer always looks a bit ready to go mad, so it makes sense that she would play Edgar Allan's love interest.

Ron Moore's fantasy crime drama 17th Precinct just cast Kristin Kreuk. The former Lana Lang will be playing the wife of Jamie Bamber's character. At least we know that Kreuk's character can't be retconned as much as she was in Smallville (so far, anyway).

We finally get a male lead for the upcoming Pan Am. Jonah Lotan from Generation Kill has been cast as a pilot. And you thought that he would play a steward.

Helping to close out the end of what has been a pretty fun season of guests for CSI will be the show's own Louise Lombard. She will return to help the CSIs out with catching a serial killer, because stopping in to say hi just isn't cool if lives aren't on the line.

For some reason the US premiere date of the next series of Doctor Who has been set before the UK's. So make sure to set your DVRs for April 23. And until then always remember that bow ties are cool.

Cute but condescending chef Jamie Oliver and his Food Revolution will be returning this April 12. Just like last season, Oliver will mostly just tell people that they should all be ashamed of themselves for eating so poorly. So, you know, quality television.
