EXCLUSIVE: Gilles Marini, who joined Switched At Birth as a recurring last season, has been upped to a regular on the ABC Family drama. The series follows Bay (Vanessa Marano) and Daphne (Katie Leclerc), teenagers from different walks of life who have learned they’re living with the wrong family. Marini plays Bay’s biological father, Angelo. The Brothers & Sisters and Dancing With The Stars alum, repped by SDB Partners and Authentic, will next be seen on the All-Star edition of Dancing.

That was quick — two months after Detroit 187 alum Jon Michael Hill landed an arc on the new CBS drama Elementary, he has been promoted to a regular. The contemporary take on Sherlock Holmes stars Jonny Lee Miller as the British sleuth who is helping NYPD and Lucy Liu as his sidekick. Hill, repped by SDB and the Cornerstone Agency, plays a detective, a role he originated in the first three episodes of the series.
