• Aussie actor Steven Cabral (Neighbours) has joined Ravenswood, per ET.com, playing a member of Miranda’s (Nicole Anderson) family. The Pretty Little Liars spin-off premieres in October.

• Should former NFL player O.J. Simpson be let out early from his current stint in a Reno, Nev., jail, he could be Anger Management-bound. “O.J. would play a thinly veiled version of himself — a famous con who’s pissed off about being unjustly incarcerated,” Simpson’s promoter Norman Pardo tells the New York Post. UPDATE: FX execs have since nixed the report, telling the Los Angeles Times: “It will never happen.”
