As first divulged by EW, actor Jason Dohring has boarded the upcoming and highly anticipated CW thriller Ringer. Dohring is scheduled to play a high school teacher by the name of Mr. Carpenter, who is said to see potential in Juliet, the step daughter of Gellar’s Siobhan.

For the unknown – Ringer marks Sarah Michelle Gellar’s return to television, following her as twins Bridget and Siobhan, who both share a “bounty on their heads.” The addition of Dohring should sweeten the pot for fans. The actor has recently guest starred on Lie to Me, CSI: Crime Scene Investigation, and 2008’s Moonlight.

Ringer premieres on the CW on September 13th. In other casting news, things are starting to pick up for College Republicans, that follows the campaign of Karl Rove. Finally landing a director, Richard Linklater is set to helm the flick with Paul Dano (There Will Be Blood) now on board the starring role of Rove. Per IMDB, the movie is slated to be released for 2013. Not much else has been revealed.

A new movie entitled ‘Goliath’ is on the way. From Relativity Media and Twilight producers Marty Bowen and Wyck Godfrey, the movie will chronicle Goliath on the hunt for the King of Israel, David, according to Twitch. Currently on board director Scott Derrickson’s latest venture is not only Dwayne Johnson as the titular character, but a possible Taylor Lautner to play David as well. Conformation should be on the way shortly.

Finally, actress Olivia Munn may be joining the story of Channing Tatum’s days as a stripper under the direction of Steven Soderbergh. Munn, if she seals the deal, would star alongside Alex Pettyfer, Matthew McConaughey, Matt Bomer and Joe Mangianello. What a line up! She is currently in talks to play the girl who catches the eye of Tatum’s character.
