Television

It's deja vu all over again

October 12, 2003|Susan King

Almost every new show premiering this fall, it seems, has a cast featuring at least one face you've seen before on series TV. Some of these recurring faces are veteran actors who have accumulated a long list of series credits over the past two or three decades. But more often than not, these stars are under 40, and while their earlier shows weren't popular with audiences, these actors seem to be popular with networks and casting agents.

Here's a guide to some familiar faces popping up on the new programming this fall and what series they have done before.
