Jamie Kennedy a psych expert? Yes, on Ghost Whisperer
Jay Mohr was the college connection with whom Melinda consulted on Ghost Whisperer, but now that he's getting his own sitcom on the networks, Project Gary, GW needs a new character to provide the same kind of insight. Jamie will play Eli, a college grad student.
He gets friendly with Melinda while Mohr's character, Professor Rick Payne, exits after the first couple of shows to take a sabbatical. That's good news for Jay, because if his show flops, he can return to Ghost Whisperer. (Having seen the Project Gary pilot, don't be surprised if this is exactly what happens.)
Ghost Whisperer is heading into its fourth year on CBS and will continue to lead off Friday nights at 8 o'clock. Recently, the fire at Universal Studios destroyed some sets on which the show filmed scenes in the past. The damage was not serious enough to impede production, though, and the look of Grandview will continue to look the same as always.
