Rachelle Lefevre, currently a female lead in “Off the Map,” has been cast as the female lead in the NBC pilot “The Crossing.” This likely indicates that “Off the Map” will be canceled, though we’ve been predicting that here at Blast.
“The Crossing” is set in a Missouri town during the post-Civil War Reconstruction era. It centers on Jason, a soldier who settles into the town and revered by its townsfolk. Lafevre will play Anna, a war widow who watched helplessly as Union soldiers burned her husband and two little boys alive in their barn. Now living with her five-year-old daughter, Anna is smitten with Jason at first sight and embarks on a torrid affair with the troubled outsider.
