Josh Jackson Cast in ‘FRINGE’ from J.J. Abrams

Josh Jackson cast in JJ Abrams Show FRINGE

Can I get a ‘hells yeah’?! EW is reporting that J.J. Abrams has just cast Josh Jackson as one of the leads is his new Sci-Fi series for Fox called FRINGE. In FRINGE, Josh plays a member of a unit investigating sci-fi mysteries. The 2-hour pilot is set to start shooting later this month.This is some pretty fantastic news for Josh who hasn’t had any huge break out hits since his role as Pacey Witter on DAWSON’S CREEK. Putting aside that Josh is up near the very top of my TV boyfriend list (and has been for almost a decade…wow), I do believe that he’s an insanely talented actor who just hasn’t been paired with the right part yet.

No word yet on whether or not his work on FRINGE will conflict with Josh Jackson’s planned guest stint on GREY’S ANATOMY.

Special thanks to Janet for the tip.

    Awe-some. I’m trying not to get my hopes too high, though, as it is airing on FOX, and we know what FOX does to shows that we love.

    Man, that’s a good-lookin’ man.

    God, I loved Pacey. He was the best by far, and I always wanted him to end up with Joey instead of stupid whiney Dawson.

    Meanwhile, I have got to get Sci-Fi. I don’t know a lot of people that love the genre more than I do, and a cable upgrade can not be that hard for so much enrichment to my life.

    SB – the show is of the Sci-Fi- genre, but it’s on Fox.

    […] From my favorite show to one of my favorite all time TV boyfriends. It’s been confirmed that despite the strike, Josh Jackson will be guesting on GREY’S ANATOMY this season after all. There was much buzz when his mini story arc was announced last year, but the WGA strike out that and all other stories on hold. But according to Kristin, Jackson will be appearing this season (YAY) and will be a love interest for Christina (BOO). Don’t get your hopes up for Josh to join the cast as a regular though, as he’s already filming the pilot for a new J.J. Abrams sci-fi show on Fox called FRINGE. […]
