- "24" vet Annie Wersching is moving to "Dallas." The actress has lined up a recurring role during Season 2 of the TNT soap, playing "an ambitious and sexy transportation commissioner," reports TVLine. Although her character is a newlywed, that won't stop her from a romantic dalliance with John Ross or Christopher, however. Juicy! [ TVLine]

- Two actors are joining Showtime's "House of Lies" for Season 2. Nia Long and Larenz Tate have signed on for recurring roles on the comedy series. Long will play Marty's former classmate-turned-rival consultant, while Tate will play Marty's younger, less-ambitious brother. [ The Hollywood Reporter]

- David Conrad, star of "The Ghost Whisperer," has signed on for a lead role in Lifetime's pilot "The Secret Lives of Wives." He'll play the husband of one of the titular wives, an English lit professor who was nursed through a serious illness by his loyal wife. They're just about to renew their wedding vows when she learns he's been living a double life. [ Deadline]

- Missing "The L.A. Complex"? There's still no word on new episodes, but maybe this will help: Brett Dier, who played Abby's co-star/love interest, will appear on an upcoming episode of The CW's "Emily Owens, M.D." as a patient with cystic fibrosis who needs a lung transplant. [ HollywoodLife]

- ABC Family has recruited one of its former stars for one of its new shows. "Kyle XY" star Matt Dallas will appear on the network's freshman sitcom "Baby Daddy" as a new love interest for Chelsea Kane's Riley for at least three episodes, throwing a wrench in the Riley-Ben-Danny love triangle. The arc will reunite Dallas with Jean-Luc Bilodeau, the titular baby daddy who co-starred as Kyle's younger brother on "Kyle XY." [ THR]
