Nicollette Sheridan cast as Alexis Carrington on CW's 'Dynasty' reboot

Nicollette Sheridan cast as Alexis Carrington on CW's 'Dynasty' reboot”

Desperate Housewives alumna Nicollette Sheridan is joining the cast of the CW's Dynasty reboot. The network announced today that Nicollette Sheridan will play Alexis Carrington on the prime-time soap. (Sheridan unsuccessfully sued over her firing.) But the actress' 100-plus episode stint on Desperate Housewives wasn't even her biggest, as she played Paige Matheson on CBS' Knot's Landing for almost a decade.

The scheming socialite, famously played in the original series by Dame Joan Collins, has been recast for the show's modern re-imagining from the creators of Gossip Girl, but it turns out their their choice of replacement is an absolute corker.

Carrington is Blake Carrington's (Grant Show) ex-wife and Fallon (Elizabeth Gillies) and Steven's (James Mackay) mother.

"She will return unexpectedly to their world, challenging Blake's marriage to Cristal, seeking to reunite with her children, and fighting to claim what is hers", the CW said in the announcement.

The series will center on the powerful Carrington family as they defend their throne against the Colbys, new rivals and threats, and even each other.

This will be Sheridan's first regular television role since she played Edie Britt on "Desperate Housewives".

There's no word on her first episode, but Sheridan starts filming in the new year and will appear in the last few installments of the first season.

She is repped by Innovative Artists and Rick Genow of Stone, Genow, Smelkinson, Binder & Christopher.
