scott foley feb 2011 gi Scott Foley plays 'The Goodwin Games,' Dennis Quaid and Michael Chiklis head to VegasPilot casting news is coming fast and furious these days. The latest:

Scott Foley, late of “Grey’s Anatomy,” will star opposite Becki Newton in FOX’s comedy “The Goodwin Games,” about three siblings poised to inherit their late father’s fortune — if they agree to his terms. Foley will also have a recurring part on “True Blood” this summer. [Deadline]

Dennis Quaid has signed on to what could be his first TV series, a CBS drama about Ralph Lamb, a rodeo cowboy-turned-1960s sheriff in Las Vegas. Michael Chiklis (“The Shield,” “No Ordinary Family”) has also joined the show as Lamb’s primary antagonist, Chicago mobster Johnny Savino. [Hollywood Reporter]

– “Saturday Night Live” regular Abby Elliott will star in a FOX comedy called “Ned Fox Is My Manny,” playing a type-A single mom who hires her more laid-back brother to help raise her daughter (played by Maggie Jones). If the show goes to series, Elliott will leave “SNL.” Lucy Punch (“Bad Teacher”) will also star as a friend of Elliott’s character — which probably doesn’t bode well for the “Powers” adaptation she starred in at FX.

Brigid Brannagh (“Army Wives”) will play Elizabeth Lily, whose family is building New York’s first luxury hotel. Maury Sterling (“Homeland”) has also joined the cast. [Hollywood Reporter]

Lily Tomlin has joined Reba McEntire in ABC’s comedy “Malibu Country.” McEntire is playing the ex-wife of a musician who has left her with only a mobile home in the ‘Bu to her name; Tomlin will play her mom, who makes the move with her from Nashville. [Deadline]

– Other casting news: Mira Sorvino is set to star in a CBS drama called “Trooper” alongside Jay Hernandez; Bradley Whitford has joined Ali Larter in “The Asset” at FOX; “Daily Show” veteran Larry Wilmore has joined FOX’s “Living Loaded”; Judy Reyes (“Scrubs”) and Roselyn Sanchez (“Without a Trace”) will star in ABC’s “Devious Maids”; and Robert Knepper (“Prison Break,” “Heroes”) has been cast in The CW’s “Cult.” [Deadline]
