Give These TV Stars A Show Already!

Scott FoleyNews broke that Scott Foley of 'The Unit,' which was axed last May, will guest on an upcoming episode of 'Law & Order: SVU.'

It's a shame, though, that Foley isn't moving to a new show full-time, because we think he deserves another chance.

That got us thinking: What are some other TV stars in need of a comeback?

We took a look at some of the best canceled shows from last season ('Privileged!' 'Pushing Daisies!') and selected six stars we'd love to see land on new series. Check out our picks below.

Joanna GarciaJoanna Garcia

We're still trying to figure out why the CW canceled 'Privileged,' an underrated dramedy that had all the ingredients to make Joanna Garcia TV's next "It' girl. On the plus side: She's since been offered her a multi-episode gig on 'Gossip Girl,' where she'll play Nate's (Chace Crawford) conservative new girlfriend, Bree Buckley.

Victor GarberVictor Garber
He can act! He can sing! -- so well, in fact, that we're starting to wonder if there's anything Victor Garber can't do. So why do shows keep casting him in supporting roles?



Kristin ChenowethKristin Chenoweth
Her 2001 sitcom, 'Kristin,' was a bomb (NBC canceled it after just one season). But we've also seen what good things Chenoweth can do when paired with the right material. Case in point: Her lovable performance as Olive on ABC's 'Pushing Daisies,' which just earned her a second Emmy nomination.

Ian McShaneIan McShane
After all of the excellent -- and Emmy-nominated -- work he did on HBO's 'Deadwood,' McShane is entitled to a better platform than 'Kings,' a show that was never given much of a fighting chance to begin with (its final episodes faded quietly over the summer). It's enough to bring out the Al Swearengen in all of us.

Amber TamblynAmber Tamblyn
Yes, she has two strikes against her already ('Joan of Arcadia' and 'The Unusuals'). But we're willing to risk a third on this talented 26-year-old so long as she can find a show to match her natural on-screen charisma.



Wentworth MillerWentworth Miller
The demise of 'Prison Break' wasn't entirely Miller's fault (it was one-season concept to begin with). So, we'll give him the benefit of the doubt. Just no more tattoo puzzles, please.
