Image Source: YouTube user HBO

Big Little Lies will officially return for a highly anticipated second season, getting us pumped up with an updated all-star cast that includes a handful of Hollywood giants such as Meryl Streep. Besides Alexander Skarsgard's mysterious return as Perry, our most pressing casting question revolves around Douglas Smith as Corey Brockfield. He's described as Jane's offbeat coworker who's a surfer and aspiring marine biologist. While not much is known about this character, we bet you might have heard of the actor behind the scenes.

The 33-year-old Smith had his first breakout role in the 1999 film Blast From the Past, playing a middle-school version of Brendan Fraser's character, a man who has lived in a fallout shelter with his parents for most of his life. Besides this part, Smith appeared in a handful of TV procedurals early in his career, including The X-Files, CSI: Crime Scene Investigation,

‘Big Little Lies’ Season 3 Is Unlikely, According to Nicole Kidman
A second season of “Big Little Lies” was far from guaranteed, given that the first season adapted Liane Moriarty’s novel in its entirety, but the show turned into such a runaway success that another go-round was ordered nevertheless. It may not happen again: Nicole Kidman, in a Variety interview, says that getting the band back together would be extremely difficult: “I think it would simply be hard to get the whole group together. But we would love to do it.”

“We” includes Meryl Streep, as the three-time Oscar winner was such a fan of the HBO series that she joined the cast without even seeing a script. “She goes, I suppose now I have to join you. And we were like, What? That’s how much she wanted to support us,” according to Kidman.

Andrea Arnold will be directing the second season, taking over for Jean-Marc Vallée, who won

2018 Emmy awards nominations ballot: See all 33 Best Limited Series contenders from ‘Alias Grace’ to ‘Waco’
All 22,000 plus voting members of the TV academy have until June 25 to cast their ballots for program nominations (save for animated documentary/nonfiction which are restricted to their peer groups.) Unlike the Oscars, Emmy voters do not rank their choices and nominees are determined by a simple tally. In the past, voters were limited in the number of programs that they could put forth. Last year that cap (which was usually 10 per category) was lifted.

While there has been an explosion in the number of comedy and drama series in the last several years, the limited series genre had been almost static. There were 25 entries in 2015, 26 in 2016 and 25 again in 2017. But this year there has been an uptick, with 33 such shows submitted. Even so, with six nominees for Best Limited Series, the odds for each of the entries detailed below are pretty good. We fill find out which half dozen
