Awesome Guest Star Casting Day

Perhaps it's because the networks are prepping for the TCA Press Tour happening in the next few days, but somehow a bunch of TV shows announced some excellent casting decisions today...

David Anders
, most recently appearing in Vampire Diaries, will always be Julian Sark to me. This TV season though, he's guest starring on the new show Once Upon A Time. I was actually left lukewarm by the teaser shown during upfronts earlier this summer, but this casting news along with all the praise from critics is making me optimistic. At the very least, it's a show I will make sure to check out in the fall.

Fresh from his Emmy-worthy guest role on United States of Tara, Eddie Izzard is heading into the court room to go head-to-head with another strong-willed wife and mother in The Good Wife. I'm thinking Julianna Margulies will have her hands full with Izzard as the opposing counsel.

Party Down and Freaks & Geeks alum Martin Starr will appear in an episode of Community next season as a poli-sci professor. Already this month, the show has announced John Goodman and The Wire's Michael K. Williams to guest star next season. Goodman will play a rival dean while Williams will tackle being a biology professor.

Last, but certainly not least, Parks and Recreation finally cast the ever mysterious Tammy 1, Ron Swanson's first wife, and it is none other than Oscar-nominated Patricia Clarkson! If there ever was a woman to strike fear in Megan Mullaly, it'd be her, and I'm so looking forward to the interaction she'll have with real-life couple Mullaly and Nick Offerman. The latter, by the way, was unfairly snubbed by the Emmys yet again. Had to be said.
