The networks are moving at a brisk pace to enliven aging shows this fall through stunt casting.

NBC Wednesday announced actor-comedian John Leguizamo (Moulin Rouge, Freak) will join the cast of ER for 12 episodes this season in the role of a dynamic supervising physician who shakes things up with unconventional ideas and cutting-edge technology.  His debut episode is scheduled to air on Oct. 20.

Fox Tuesday said Academy Award-winning actress Charlize Theron had signed on to guest-star in a five-episode arc this coming season of Arrested Development.
