    Are they sure they want Halle Berry next to that kid? Because he’s really good. And she’s just… really not. CBS drama. Wow. Talk about a dying career.

    Great casting.


    Agree this is great casting. Also like the idea that CBS is doing summer dramas as well. Adding this to the list on Under the Dome & Unforgettable is a smart move.
