Shonda Rhimes is well-known for breaking our hearts via “Grey's Anatomy” and for keeping us on the edges of our seats via “Scandal.” She's quickly taking over the ABC line-up, with a brand new show on the docket: “How to Get Away with Murder.” This show promises to be phenomenal for a number of reasons: a strong female protagonist, of which there are still far too few; a solid, talented cast; and an interesting premise. The general attractiveness of the cast is a shallow thing to look forward to, of course, but in this case, it's also warranted. This also promises to be another Shonda joint filled with people who are as beautiful as they are talented.
For instance, the show's headliner is the gorgeous, rather regal Viola Davis, who wows audiences in every movie she's in, whether she's starring or supporting. Harry Potter's Alfred Enoch – aka Dean Thomas – is set to star as well, along with Twisted's Jack Falahee and the uber-talented Charlie Weber, whom you might know from such shows as “Buffy the Vampire Slayer” and “90210.” If you're a fan of OITNB, you'll be happy to know that the darling Bennett, Matt McGorry, has a sizable role as well, which is great because “Orange Is the New Black” won't be back with a new season forever. Billy Brown is another big name – you doubtlessly know him from “Sons of Anarchy,” “Hostages,” and “Dexter,” along with quite a few awesome films. Katie Findlay from “The Carrie Diaries” is sure to lend some sparkle, and then there's the stunning Aja Naomi King, from shows like “Black Box” and “Emily Owens M.D.” All in all, it's a pretty stellar cast.
