More pilot casting news...

Tracie Thoms has signed up for a co-starring role opposite Janet Montgomery in ABC’s pilot Gothica, which is described as a "gothic soap" combines mythical legends like Dracula, Dr Jekyll and Mr Hyde, Frankenstein and Dorian Gray, and centers on a Grace Van Helsing (played by Janet Montgomery), a Pulitzer prize winning journalist from New York who takes over her family’s hometown newspaper, The Guardian.

Thoms has signed on to play Mina, described as an old friend of Grace’s and The Guardian’s managing editor.

We last saw Thoms co-starring in the Alicia Keys' stage production Stick Fly, directed by Kenny Leon, and on the big screen in the sci-fi action flick Looper, with Joseph Gordon-Levitt, Bruce Willis and Emily Blunt.
