Seems like alot. Log in to Reply Ryan-Scott April 10, 2013 Both shows have a healthy # of returning vets and these shows are only 1/2 an hour. I don’t see the need yet for all of these new people.

Or Lawyer… Log in to Reply appleridge April 10, 2013 Jesse’s Daughter, Natalia Log in to Reply angrierblackerman April 10, 2013 LOL, I forgot all about Natalia. Probably because she became a cop in 3 episodes… Log in to Reply MsAgentProvocateur1 April 10, 2013 [quote=Ryan-Scott]Both shows have a healthy # of returning vets and these shows are only 1/2 an hour.

It would be a crime for that man not to have a love life (like what ended up happening to him when AMC was on TV) on a saucier version of AMC.

She’s not the bestest actress in the world but she’s pretty good, coming off a couple of seasons of “The Shield,””Warehouse 13″ and guesting on “The Good Wife,” as well. Always liked her! Log in to Reply Daniel St. John April 10, 2013 Never cared much for her on GL but I really enjoyed her on all of the subsequent shows she has appeared on like Warehouse 13 and The Shield. Log in to Reply Y2Jin99 April 10, 2013 I believe she was on the Shield too. I loved the Shield. What a great show that was with Michael Chiklis. Log in to Reply tazmaniak April 12, 2013 They need new people for storytelling purposes. I mean, there’s only so many new storylines you can explore with the same characters who have already interacted for decades. I honestly don’t think you can say it’s a lot. AMC currently has 21 contract actors/characters and only 4 of them are new. OLTL has 17 contract actors/characters and 1 of them is new.
