Gilmore Girl set for ER finale

by Allison Waldman, posted Mar 1st 2009 9:00PM
ABI've been pretty hard on NBC of late, like calling for Jeff Zucker's head when NBC announced it will present Jay Leno every weeknight in prime time next fall, but I think I'm going to have to tip my cap to the network for how ER is coming to an end.

Not only have the producers lured George Clooney and Juliana Margulies back for a last go-round, they've also cast Oscar-winner Susan Sarandon for a guest turn. George, Julianna and Susan will all appear on ER on March 12.

I'm curious to see their appearances, but here's the casting that will have me definitely tuning in: Alexis Bledel is booked for ER two-hour finale on April 2.


After watching Alexis grow up on Gilmore Girls, I've been invested in her career -- including both Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants movies. I'm loyal to Lauren Graham in the same way. Perhaps it's a Gilmore thing, cause I'm also watching Samantha Who? for Melissa McCarthy.

On ER, Alexis will play Dr. Julia Wise, an intern at County General. Perhaps reflecting the origins of the show, Dr. Wise will be thrown into the action and discover the rigors of medicine in one fell swoop.

How exciting! I watched both shows from beginning to end. I can't believe that they're crossing paths!

Maybe they're secretly prepping for a spin-off series that she'll star in:)
