Big Name Stars Coming to 'In Plain Sight'

in_plain_sight_mary_mccormack_frederick_wellerLast night during 'Burn Notice,' there were promos for 'In Plain Sight' and it got my heart pumped just to hear Mary McCormack's voice again. Hooray, Mary's back. And so is 'In Plain Sight,' one of the most improved series on cable in its sophomore run last season. The new season kicks off on March 31 on USA Network, and 'In Plain Sight's' lined up some big stars as guests.

The top of the list is Allison Janney. They're not saying if it's more than a single episode -- here's hoping -- but Allison will be a playing a "newly appointed U.S. Marshal who clashes with Mary." If you remember Janney and McCormack in the last couple of seasons of 'The West Wing,' this should be a great reunion.

Last season, another 'West Wing' alum, Richard Schiff, provided one of the best turns on 'In Plain Sight.' Another former 'Wing' cast member, Joshua Malina, did a good job as a semi-regular. Since any connection to the former Emmy-winning NBC series has been excellent for the show, I anticipate good stuff with Janney and McCormack again.

That's not all when it comes to star power. Rita Moreno has been cast as Raph's aunt and she'll be stirring things up as Mary and Raph plan their wedding. Can you see the culture clash of Jinx's idea of Mary's wedding meets Raph's tia's traditions? Of course, with Lesley Ann Warren as Jinx -- with her musical talent revealed on screen last season -- maybe the two ladies will cook up a song for the wedding rehearsal?

Rita did win an Oscar for 'West Side Story.' Imagine those two singing, 'A Boy Like That'! That'd be fun, and since the show is bringing Grammy-winner Liz Phair to be the show's music composer, perhaps there's something cooking in that direction.

Wait, we're not done yet. More stars are coming to 'Sight.' Two eps for Steven Weber as an FBI agent and Tess Harper as a federal prosecutor.

Good news. The only reason I watch the show is Cristian de la Fuente.

As an Albuquerque resident I used to really enjoy this show... they even shot a show on my childhood block, but after the stars comments about how boring Albuquerque is... I dont think I will be watching. Albuquerque is not LA or Vegas but its not Podunkville either. We have plenty to do if you go looking

Whenever they appear, I click on 'Report". Hopefully AOL can do something, but I honestly think that they can't. I'm not technically savvy, but it seems there is no way for AOL to block them.

Believe me, they could block that spam if they wanted to. They spend millions of dollars blocking spam on AOL e-mails, and those same old spam items come up over and over again. If there is some technical quirk that makes it harder to block "I am an air force" and "me and my boyfriend broke up" than it is to hack into a system and steal thousands of identities, I'd like for somebody at AOL to explain it to us. They can prevent people who are selling Viagra or asking everybody if they want a bigger p**** from sending e-mails to my inbox; they should be able to recognize the guy who wants us to clean our colons or relieve our hemorrhoids.

I also hit report! Maybe if enough people do it AOL will get the hint.

Some of us have never watched West Wing and know nothing of the people you mentioned..

Still, I can't wait til Mary and the gang returns...

I love " In Plain Sight" I can't wait for it to come back. U.S.A. is my favorite station. I loved "Monk", Burn Notice, White Collar, and In Plain Sight. These show should be winning Emmies because they are so good.

I was really hoping for Marshal Marshall and Mary to get together. He did such a great job of crying at the end of last season.

i too have been anxious for this show to come back (along with closer, burn notice & psych). wish they'd selected someone other than steven weber, tho. i haven't like him since they cancelled wings! this show was good from the beginning and just keeps getting better. nice to see SOME networks standing behind their shows!
