It didn’t take producers of Discovery Channel’s “Klondike” long to find a replacement for Chris Cooper, who pulled out of the miniseries last week citing “a personal matter.” Sam Shep­ard has joined the cast of the channnel’s first scripted project. Based on Charlotte Gray’s novel, “Gold Diggers: Striking It Rich in the Klondike,” the series tells the story of six strangers and their fight for survival in a town in the remote region. Shepard will play Father Judge, who comes there to atone for his violent past.
