David GreenwaltDavid Greenwalt - "Moonlight" Tv Series are more recasting

Shannyn Sossamon joins fellow additions Jason Dohring and Sophia Myles
Would the last original cast member from CBS’ "Moonlight" pilot remember to turn off the lights on the way out?
After a busy week of recasting, the only major player remaining from the initial pilot presentation picked up by CBS in May is leading man Alex O’Loughlin.
The latest fresh face is Shannyn Sossamon, replacing Amber Valletta as Coraline, the vampire who sired main character Mick (O’Loughlin). Mick works as a private investigator when he isn’t sucking blood, fighting both human crimes and immortal foes.
"Angel" co-creator David Greenwalt took over the show last month and since his arrival, changes have been significant. First, Mick’s human love interest went from Shannon Lucio’s intrepid TV reporter to Sophia Myles’ dogged Internet reporter. Then 25-year-old "Veronica Mars" star Jason Dohring replaced 60-year-old Rade Serbedzija as Mick’s immortal mentor.
According to The Hollywood Reporter, which has slowly disseminated the recasting news through the week, "Moonlight" has now completed its overhaul with the Sossamon addition.
Most recently seen on FX’s "Dirt," Sossamon’s feature credits include "A Knight’s Tale," "40 Days and 40 Nights" and "The Rules of Attraction."
