'Shore' Man Takes 'Miss/Guided' Role
Can Burns and Polaha recapture that 'North Shore' fire?
Judy Greer ("Arrested Development") continues to topline the pilot, playing a woman who returns to her old high school and generates a regular stream of hilarity, but ABC is also filling the supporting roles with familiar faces.
Earlier in the week, we learned that Brooke Burns ("Pepper Dennis") will play a teacher at the school, with Earl Billings as the principal.
But, in an interesting twist, Burns' "North Shore" romantic interest Kristoffer Polaha will be playing another of the school's teachers. Passionate fans of "North Shore" will recall that when Burns and Pohala were last together... Oh, who are we kidding, there were no passionate fans of "North Shore."
Also joining the cast, as another teacher, is Jonathan Sadowski ("American Dreams").
Written by Caroline Williams and directed by Todd Holland, "Miss/Guided" will be produced by Ashton Kutcher's Katalyst Films shingle.
In addition to his tenure on "North Shore," Polaha may be familiar from guest appearances on shows including "House" and "Tru Calling." He still may be best known for playing JFK Jr. in FOX's "America's Prince: The John F. Kennedy Jr. Story."
