By B.J. Hammerstein
Good news "Spartacus: Bloods and Sand" fans. Actress Erin Cummings, who played the title character's wife Sura in the first season of the Starz series, will be joining the cast of "Detroit 1-8-7" as a cast regular. Cummings will play the primary medical examiner the "1-8-7" homicide detectives work with during their investigations, ABC confirmed today with the Free Press. But there's more: Ala Drew Barrymore's locally-made film "Whip It!" and our very own real-life sports stars, the Detroit Derby Girls, Cummings' character will moonlight after work as a roller derby player.
Cummings comes to "1-8-7," the first ever network prime-time series to be fully produced in Detroit, a graduate of the University of North Texas with a degree in journalism. Her acting credits include "Star Trek: Enterprise," "Charmed," "Dante's Cove," "The Bold and the Beautiful," "Cold Case," and "Dollhouse."
