Fans of the made-for-TV movie series The Librarian, rejoice! A television series is coming to your screen co-starring Noah Wyle and featuring an amazing cast including Christian Kane.

  • He has lots of love for the city of Portland. With shows such as Grimm and Portlandia, why wouldn’t you?
  • He mentions some guest stars who will appear on The Librarians and how he recorded a song for someone. Pretty cool, right?
  • Fans of King & Maxwell can be happy to know that the former TV siblings, Kane and Rebecca Romijn, are back together. They’re just not siblings. But, he will be playing Romijn’s sidekick!

There’s all of this and more during the discussion in the video below. Make sure to tune into The Librarians series premiere December 7 on TNT (Fun fact: It’ll be airing on the exact date of the movie’s ten year anniversary)!
