Gina Gershon will play Donatella Versace in Lifetime’s upcoming telemovie “House of Versace” about how Donatella took over the fashion empire after her brother’s slaying. Gershon joins a cast that includes Enrico Colantoni as Gianni, Raquel Welch as her Aunt Lucia and Colm Feore as her brother Santo.

Lindsay Lohan has scheduled a guest appearance in the final season of HBO’s “Eastbound & Down”. No details yet on her character, or how many episodes she’s involved in.

Josh Gad will co-star opposite Billy Crystal in FX comedy pilot “The Comedians”. Crystal plays a veteran comedian reluctantly paired with a younger, edgier comedian (Gad) for a late-night comedy sketch show. Gad’s young and hip comic resents the pairing.

“The Killing” actress Bext Taylor-Krause will appear as ‘Sin’ in the third and fourth episodes of The CW drama’s upcoming second season of “Arrow”. The character is a wayward youth who is befriended by the Black Canary.

Finally, John Gallagher Jr., Zoe Kazan, and Jesse Plemons have all joined the cast of the Frances McDormand-led HBO miniseries “Olive Kitteridge”. The mini-series is Elizabeth Strout’s Pulitzer Prize-winning collection of short stories about a woman observing affairs, crime and tragedy in her small New England town.
