You can't blame the Powers That Be over at Brothers & Sisters. They really did cast Joe Jonas as a young Balthazar Getty, but damn those JoBros are a busy bunch!

Due to scheduling conflicts the pop superstar will no longer be the filling Tommy's shoes, but my sources confirm what our frenemy over at EW has reported: that Make It or Break It's Cody Longo is the new young'un taking over the role.

As for the once beloved patriarch, inside sources at B&S tell us that a semifamiliar and fully hot face has been cast as the youthful William Walker...

Newcomer Anna Wood has been cast as Rachel Griffiths' Sarah. We're still working on getting a photo of Anna, but you can see her here. And here's Rachel...

Kasey Campbell (a newcomer who did a couple episodes of Weeds) has been cast as Kevin (Matthew Rhys)...

Still up for grabs is the coveted role of Sally Fields' Nora Walker, which sources tell me include this list of potential candidates: Psych's Rachael Leigh Cook, Dexter's wonderfully creepy Courtney Ford and Grey's Anatomy's Nora Zehetner. We haven't yet heard word of Dave Annable's Justin, but that's likely because the youngest Walker was only a twinkle in Nora and William's eye when the first 1970s flashback takes place.

What do you think of how the Walker family is shaping up? Will you be watching these flashback eps?


Looks like there will be a few more shots to add to our TV Celebrity Stunt Casting photo gallery once this episode comes around.
