".... In FX Pilot ‘The Americans’

I’ve learned that Brothers & Sisters alum Matthew Rhys has landed the male lead opposite Keri Russell in FX‘s period drama pilot The Americans. Created/executive by Joe Weisberg, executive produced by Graham Yost and directed by Gavin O’Connor, the project centers on two KGB spies posing as Americans in suburban Washington, DC in the early 1980s. The arranged marriage of Phillip Jennings (Rhys) and Elizabeth Jennings (Russell) grows more passionate and genuine by the day but is constantly tested by the escalation of the Cold War and the intimate, dangerous and darkly funny relationships they must maintain with a network of spies and informants under their control. The Americans is produced by Fox TV Studios and FX Prods. DreamWorks TV’s Darryl Frank and Justin Falvey are also executive producing. Reps for FX could not be reached for comment Friday night. Brit Rhys is with WME, Management 360 and UK’s United Agents."

This is GREAT :) Happy for Matthew :), chuffed to bits for him ..cant wait to see him again on screen ..

About Luke -plz lets not kid ourselves that Luke will get a g8 Gig look at what happend to T.R knight after coming out. So Luke will get some Guest Roles and not a Main Roles and i think he knew this anyway!

You're right and that makes me very sad and mad but I still have faith that he will get some recurring role. Maybe not as a romantic lead of a tv show but some cable show could cast him on an action role, a villainous or something like this. Or in a gay character role, why not? FX is a good option, or Showtime, HBO...

I am sure that if he was not "out" he would have already got a lead role like Dave Annable or Matthew but I want to think positive and hope he gets something :) It's a pity that he's being punished for being honest and brave tough.

I wouldn't mind if he did some different little things on tv and expand his career-sheet a bit. Explore his possibilities and learn from the experiences that he makes.

I don't know. A lot will also depend on Luke's own desire to work. He did often come across as someone who's more into theatre, so I wouldn't be surprised if he went in that direction, rather than tv or movie.
(I hope not, because I'd love to see more of him.) I guess, it all depends on the luck you have as an actor.

Plus there are a lot of straight actors too that were once very popular and now are not heard from anymore...

Yes, I wouldn't mind him doing other type of work as theatre or indie movies. I think he is more this type of actor than a tv actor and I would love to see him on this type of work because is what I prefer.

But Luke himself said on an interview in Pittsburgh that he will be in LA doing the pilot season. So, his desire this year is to be on a tv show and it makes me sad that he hasn't been casted yet.
