The Oaks Cast Branches Out

Bahar Soomekh, Matt Lanter and Shannon Lucio have been cast in Fox's new paranormal TV drama The Oaks, according to The Hollywood Reporter.

The project, from 20th Century Fox TV and Little Engine, was picked up by the network last month with a series commitment.

Written by David Schulner and to be run by Shawn Ryan, Oaks tells the intertwined stories of three families—a young couple who have just lost a child in 1968, a family of four in 1988 and a pregnant couple in 2008—who live in the same house and are haunted by a restless spirit.

Lucio and Lanter will play the 1968 couple; Soomekh will play the pregnant woman, who is a highly educated, capable executive, in 2008.

Michael Cuesta is directing the pilot for Oaks, which is slated to begin production in November. He also is executive-producing with Schulner, Ryan and Little Engine's Gina Matthews and Grant Scharbo.

Doctor Who star David Tennant dismissed speculation about how long he plans to stay on the show, saying, "I'm doing four more specials, and beyond that, no one's asked me to make any decisions, and I'm quite happy to be enigmatic for as long as possible," the GallifreyOne.com Web site reported.

John Hurt, who is rumored to play Abner Ravenwood in the upcoming Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull, talked with Premiere Magazine about his appearance in the much-anticipated sequel.

ABC has posted teasers for the upcoming fourth season of Lost, which returns Jan. 31, 2008.
