Slater: Changes Coming to ‘The Forgotten’



BY: Shelia Byrd

HATTIESBURG, Miss. – Actor Christian Slater says some changes are in store in upcoming episodes of his ABC drama ‘The Forgotten.’

Slater stars in the show about amateur detectives who investigate the deaths of John and Jane Doe victims. He said ABC has signed off on a few more episodes despite the show's lackluster ratings.

One of the changes is new cast member Elisha Cuthbert, whose film credits include “The Girl Next Door.” Slater says Cuthbert brings a new energy to the set.

The actor's comments came Thursday during a taping of 'Extreme Makeover: Home Edition.' Slater is helping volunteers renovate the home of Sherman and Gina Heathcock of Hattiesburg, Miss. He said the episode will air in 2010.
