Due to a family emergency, Ben Browder has had to depart Australia immediately and return home, while we cannot go into it in detail, it was a major family emergency and while Ben was very upset about disappointing his NZ fans, it could not be avoided.

Thank you to Spritelady on Terra Firma for passing on the news. And I'm sending good vibes toward Ben and his family, they've had a rough year as it is.

with Ben's agent, Hank, that Ben has indeed been cast in Hellcats for the CW and they are already in production.


*calms down*

Now for what Hellcats is about... It's about Cheerleading. Competitive College Cheerleading and Ben will be playing the coach. According to that wiki page I link to it's going to be a cross between Election and Bring It On.

Character description: Ben Browder portrays Red Raymond. He is in his late 30's and is the Lancer's football coach. Described as a "handsome rogue who never lost the boyishness of youth", he banters on-and-off with his former romance Vanessa. He makes a pass on Alice while tending to her injury.

ETA: More info on the role.


HELLCATS (The CW) - Ben Browder ("Stargate SG-1") has joined the cast of the presentation, a drama set in the world of competitive college cheerleading. He'll reportedly play Red Irvine, Lancer University's football coach, "a handsome rogue who never lost the boyishness of youth." He and the Hellcats coach Vanessa Hodge (Sharon Leal) share a history - they had an affair while he, then married at the time, was an assistant coach and she was cheer captain - and now he wants payback (she dumped him after he left his wife without telling her) in the form of getting her fired after one of the Hellcats (Heather Hemmens) gets hurt. Aly Michalka, Ashley Tisdale, Gail O'Grady, Matt Barr, Robbie Jones and Sofia Vassilieva also star. Allan Arkush is directing the CBS Television Studios/Warner Bros. Television-based project from a script by Kevin Murphy.

I saw this on a Google Alert and wanted to spread the news:

In other pilot castings, Ben Browder, repped by Gersh and Hank McCann, rounds out the series regular cast of the CW’s Hellcats.

I have no clue as to what Hellcats is supposed to be about.

Considering that this states that it's a "pilot" we may never actually get to see it (there are hundreds each year that never see the light of day), I really don't want to get my hopes up too high, but honestly Ben on my television!!! is all I can think of at this moment and want to share with you.
