The Hollywood Reporter notes that Tricia Helfer has been tapped to co-star on Fox's drama pilot "Inseparable," from ABC Studios and writer/exec producer Shaun Cassidy, is a modern-day Jekyll and Hyde tale about Justin/Clyde (Lloyd Owen), a partially paralyzed forensic psychiatrist with a split personality whose alter ego is a charismatic criminal.
Helfer ("Battlestar Galactica") will play Mason Wicks, a psychiatrist who evaluates suspects for the police department. The casting stems from the talent holding deal Helfer inked with Fox in April.
This is in addition to her recurring role as Carla on USA's Burn Notice. Maureen Ryan for the Chicago Tribune interviewed the executive producer of Burn Notice, Matt Nix, the creator of the USA Network show. Nix talks about becoming a fan of Tricia because of Battlestar Galactica, and also notes that they used another BSG actor, Lucy Lawless as a guest last season.
In other casting news, Sam Witwer ("Crashdown" from seasons 1-2) has been cast in Smallville to play über-villain Doomsday.
