danny strong, doyle, gilmore girls, revivalThere's been a flurry of "Gilmore Girls" activity in recent days, with confirmations that a bunch of original cast members will be back for the revival, including all three of Rory's (Alexis Bledel) former boyfriends. Now, two more memorable men are joining the fold.

First comes word from the Gilmore Guys podcast that Danny Strong will be reprising his role as Doyle, the neurotic editor-in-chief of the Yale Daily News and soulmate of Paris (Liza Weil). Strong has gone on to great success since he left "Gilmore," as the co-creator of "Empire" and the screenwriter of hit films including "The Butler." Weil previously confirmed her involvement in the revival, revealing that she'd star in two of the four 90-minute installments; we'd imagine that Paris and Doyle are probably married with several kids by now, and Strong will most likely appear alongside her in those two episodes.

The next return is a bit more controversial: Variety reports that David Sutcliffe will also be back. Sutcliffe's character, Christopher (Rory's dad and Lorelai's former flame), didn't exactly end the series on the best terms, after he tried to make a go of things with Lorelai (Lauren Graham). After a quickie wedding in season seven, the pair soon realized they weren't meant to be, and he split, laying the groundwork for Lorelai to reunite with Luke (Scott Patterson) in the series finale. The last we saw of him, he was proudly watching Rory graduate from Yale.

Strong and Sutcliffe join an ever-growing cast list for the revival that also includes Graham, Bledel, Patterson, Weil, Kelly Bishop, Keiko Agena, Sean Gunn, Milo Ventimiglia, Matt Czuchry, Yanic Truesdale, Rose Abdoo, and John Cabrera. There's no word yet on when the revival will premiere, but it's expected to arrive on Netflix sometime later this year.
