Happy Saturday, Zappers! In case you missed some of this week’s TV casting news, here are the latest actors and actresses adding new lines to their resumes.
“Teen Wolf” and “The Secret Circle” supernatural creature-hunter J.R. Bourne has scored a recurring role on ABC’s sudsy “Revenge.” He’ll play Kenny, described as a “magnetic, self-assured Hamptons resident who tries to hide his rough edges behind his fancy clothes and Mercedes.” And, though we never doubted it for a second, he’ll also return to “Teen Wolf” in Season 3.

Jeff Fahey, best known for his role as Frank on “Lost,” will reunite with J.J. Abrams and Elizabeth Mitchell for NBC’s “Revolution” this fall. He’ll guest star in the season’s fifth episode as Hutch, who was once a rebel fighter but has given up his cause to become the owner of a book shop. [TVLine]
“Franklin & Bash’s” Malcolm McDowell will be heading back to school in the fourth season of “Community.” He’s set to guest star in four episodes as Greendale’s Professor Cornwallis, the gang’s new history prof. [THR]
Dwight’s sister and nephew have been cast for the potential “The Office” spin-off, “The Farm,” which will begin as a backdoor pilot episode this season. Majandra Delfino of “Roswell” fame will play Dwight’s sister Fannie, and Blake Garett will play his nephew, Cameron. In addition to the backdoor pilot, if the series gets picked up, both actors will be series regulars. [TVLine]
“Grey’s Anatomy” fans know Steven Bailey best as friendly bartender Joe, and he’s staying in the Shonda Rhimes family with a gig on her vastly underrated new show “Scandal.” Ann Cusack will also be joining the show as the chief of a national security agency. As if that’s not enough, Norm Lewis, Patrick Fischler, Lorraine Toussaint, and Gregg Henry are all also confirmed to be appearing in Season 2. Whew. [Huffington Post]
