    "Rhames to Star in Aquaman Series
    Source: Variety February 20, 2006

    "Mission: Imposssible" franchise star Ving Rhames is joining The CW's Aquaman project, Mercy Reef, reports Variety.

    Rhames will play McCaffery, a lighthouse keeper who serves as mentor to series lead A.C. Curry (played by Will Toale) in the Warner Bros. TV project.

    Denise Quinones has joined the cast as Navy fighter pilot Rachel Starling, a potential love interest for Curry.

    Rhames next will be seen in the feature "Mission: Impossible: III."

    Denise Quinones is a former Miss Universe !

    Interesting cast...

    Wait a minute. Wasn't Ms. Quinones just on Smallville as the Angel of Vengeance?

    AC Curry? So the King of Atlantis is going to moonlight in the surface world as a guy named after cold spices?

    While Teen Titans and Justice League get cancelled, and "Bruce Wayne" never saw the light of day? Man, the world is screwed up...

    That's a shame. Just based on her Smallville appearance, she's not much of an actress.

    I don't know a lot about Aquaman's history, but I do know that there is a comic-based backgroupd for him going by the name Arthur Curry.

    Guess they didn't want to use him as Black Manta.

    How awesome would it be, if your title had one different letter.

    Ving Rhames IS Aquaman!!

    Please just tell me that Will Toale isn't the stiff who played Aquaman in Smallville.

    Yep, that's his name.

    Ookla the Mok has a song called Arthur Curry with Aquaman complaining about how all the other superheroes have better powers than he does...

    Damn and I was hoping that they would try to use better actors than Smallville did. That Miss Universe chick is horrible. She better be in a bikini 98% of the time. I wonder if she will be doing Accuvue commercials during this show too?

    I hope the Aquasuit is as silly as the one from Entourage.

    This really got beyond pilot status? I'm rather shocked, frankly.

    Yeesh.

    I watched "Freddie" for the very first time tonight -- it was either that or Bore-lympics or American Idolatry -- and there's Denise Quinones again, as Freddie's main squeeze!

    For someone who can't act, she sure is getting a lot of work.
