the situation on suburgatoryCiao Seaside! The Situation is leaving the shore and headed to the suburbs.

Our favorite juicehead gorilla, Mike "The Situation" Sorrentino will guest-star on ABC's hit new comedy 'Suburgatory,' reports TV Guide.

The Situation will play himself, and we can't wait to see him and Noah (Alan Tudyk) compare tans. The 'Jersey Shore' star will somehow end up in the suburbs, where he'll serve as the fist-pumping DJ at Tessa's (Jane Levy) school dance.

Sorrentino's acting debut will air sometime next year.

Carrie Preston Previews Her Different 'Law & Order: SVU' Role and 'Good Wife' Future

Carrie Preston Law and Order SVU InterviewCarrie Preston describes herself as a chameleon actress, and for good reason. Known for serving up drinks with a side of sass as Arelne on HBO's 'True Blood,' Preston has used her hiatus from the popular vampire series to book a series of dramatic roles on top network shows.

After a recent stop on 'The Good Wife,' in which she received raved reviews (both AOL TV and EW thought she deserved an Emmy nomination), Preston will next be seen on NBC's 'Law & Order: SVU.'

In 'Educated Guess' (Wed., Nov. 16, 10PM ET on NBC), Preston plays Bella, the aunt of a troubled young woman, Gia, played by Natasha Lyonne. Bella and her husband George (Tim Guinee) took in Bella's sister, Diane (J. Smith Cameron) and Gia after some family problems.

"All the series regulars are wonderful on this show and it was really fun having these guest stars to share the experience with," Preston told AOL TV.

So, is her 'SVU' character like Arlene or her 'Good Wife' character Elsbeth Tascioni? Not so much, Preston said.

"She's much more uptight and has some co-dependency issues and some controlling issues, I think," Preston said.

Find out what else the 'SVU' guest star had to say about working on the show, her future on 'The Good Wife' and what's next on 'True Blood' below. Plus, exclusive first-look video of Preston in action with the 'SVU' detectives.

Arlene's Baby Relays a Wicked Message on 'True Blood' (VIDEO)

by Mike Moody, posted Jul 18th 2011 8:20AM
true bloodMaybe Arlene's fears about her new bundle of joy were right after all. Perhaps this baby has more of his evil, murderous father in him than Terry would like to admit.

On the latest episode of 'True Blood' (Sun., 9PM on HBO), Terry was hit with a scary sight -- the words "Baby not yours" scribbled on the wall in red ink.

This wouldn't be 'True Blood' without a little mystery. So the question remains: Who wrote the message? Was it Ray's ghost, speaking from beyond the grave? Or is Ray inhabiting the baby? Did the baby write it himself? Or is there some new, unknown creepy force at work here?

Carrie Preston Talks 'True Blood' Season 3 (Is Arlene Dead?!) and 'Good Wife'

by Kelly Woo, posted Apr 5th 2010 12:00PM
Carrie Preston'True Blood' star Carrie Preston doesn't have to go far to get scoop on one of her favorite shows, 'Lost.' All she has to do is turn over and ask Michael Emerson, who plays Ben Linus. Yes, these well-respected, fan-favorite actors on two of the most high-profile shows on television are married.

Now that's we call a Hollywood power couple.

But while Preston and Emerson may not be paparazzi targets like Brangelina, anything they say or do concerning their respective shows gets dissected and analyzed by fans on the Internet. Case in point: When it was announced that Preston would be guest starring on CBS' new hit legal drama 'The Good Wife,' fans of 'True Blood' instantly began to speculate whether this meant death for her character, waitress Arlene.

Hold your horses, though, she warned in an interview with AOL TV. "Let me put it this way, we've done half the season and I'm still there," she said. Preston spoke about the furor surrounding her 'Good Wife' guest stint, the upcoming third season of 'True Blood' and what she knows about the 'Lost' finale.
