Former General Hospital star, Amber Tamblyn has been tapped to star in The Unusuals, an ABC drama set to take place in midseason.
In The Unusuals, Tamblyn will take on the role as one of New York's finest, detective Casey Shraeger, who winds up in the homicide division surrounded by a group of tight knit colleagues with a quirky sense of humor and a huge mystery.
Best known for her role as Emily Quartermaine, Tamblyn is no stranger to the prime time arena. After her six year stint at GH, she went on to star in the critically acclaimed series Joan of Arcadia, which nabbed her a Golden Globe nomination. She has also made her mark on the silver screen with hits such as The Ring, The Grudge 2, and Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants 1 and 2.

This was Laura Webber's mothers name when she was married to millionaire Cameron Faulkner who became obsessed with her, she was forced to kill Cameron protecting herself from him and she found out that he had bankrupted himself stalking her and all she had left was the Free Clinic he built her on the docks.
