Susan Misner will be upped to a series regular in Season 2 of FX’s The Americans. The Cold War drama, now in its freshman season, was recently renewed. Misner plays Noah Emmerich’s wife. Additionally, she’s recurring on Person of Interest as Jim Caviezel’s girlfriend, on The Following as Kevin Bacon’s sister, and on Nashville as Charles Esten’s new love interest.

Mykelti Williamson is segueing from FX’s Justified to Fox’s drama pilot Wild Blue, written by Taylor Elmore and directed by Michael Dinner. The Sony Pictures TV-produced project is an upstairs/downstairs look at pressure-cooker lives in the U.S. Navy. It’s a young ensemble about the working men and women on board an aircraft carrier. Williamson, repped by Innovative and David Fox, will co-star as Master Chief Donald Bowman, senior enlisted man on the ship and the direct liaison between the officers (upstairs) and the enlisted (downstairs).

In other recent pilot castings, Michael Trucco and Alex Fernandez have been added to ABC drama Killer Women.
