Sean Faris (The Vampire Diaries, Pretty Little Liars) is set to co-star opposite fellow TVD alum Nathaniel Buzolic and Lucien Laviscount in Supernatural: Tribes, the planted Supernatural spinoff, which will air as an episode of the veteran sci-fi series on April 29. Written by Andrew Dabb and directed by Robert Singer, the sweeping drama revolves around the various mafia-esque monster families that unknowingly to humans “run” the underbelly of Chicago and who are being tracked by a newly minted Hunter who’s trying to stop them and rid Chicago of anything or anyone supernatural. Faris, repped by Gersh, Mosaic and Rick Genow, will play Julian Durant, the savagely handsome werewolf son of a wealthy family of lycanthropes who has no love for the shapeshifting Hayden family.

Tim Peper and Da’Vine Joy Randolph have been cast in ABC/Warner Bros. TV single-camera comedy pilot Selfie, written by Emily Kapnek and directed by Julie Anne Robinson. It centers on Eliza Dooley (Karen Gillan), a self-obsessed, twentysomething who is more concerned with “likes” than being liked. After suffering a very public and humiliating breakup, she becomes the subject of a viral video and suddenly has more social media “followers” than she ever imagined — but for all the wrong reasons. Peper will play Ethan, Eliza’sjealous, competitive and ambitious co-worker. Randolph plays Charmonique, the company’s cheerful receptionist.
