According to Entertainment Weekly, the legendary actress will play a mother of a murder victim. She has Alzheimer's and when the team goes to inform her of the bad news, she believes her grown son is still a child. Did somebody just clinch an Emmy nomination for 2012?
Duke's episode is the second of the new season, premiering Sept. 19 at 10PM on CBS.

In the middle of filming, a 5-foot snake slithered toward them. Hayek crawled (in stilettos) onto the arm rests of their chairs and screamed, "Somebody do something!"
"There were like 40 people around us, ... all these tough guys," explained Hayek on the 'Late Show' (weeknights, 11:35PM ET on CBS). "They ran! The minute they saw the snake, they were gone. It was coming towards us and her head was up and she was hissing ... The macho man who saved us was Maria's hairdresser."
The most recent news in the scandal is that porn star Devon James has filed a paternity suit against Tiger, claiming that he's the father of her 9 year-old son, Austin. 'Extra' (weekdays, syndicated) has the scoop. Porn star James is Tiger's semi-official 15th alleged mistress. Fifteen women: that's a lot. Tiger's wife Elin Nordegren refused to answer questions about the possible son, or the paternity suit.
According to James' allegations, Tiger met her before he was married, and has kept the son secret ever since. She is the second woman to accuse the golfer of giving birth to a "love child." In December, mistress Theresa Rogers also said that she gave birth to Tiger's baby -- she claimed that Tiger gave her millions of dollars in order to buy her silence.

Garry was on 'Extra' promoting his new romantic comedy 'Valentine's Day' and revealed the 'Laverne & Shirley' dream casting: Jennifer Garner and Jessica Biel. That's right. This pair of Shotz Brewery factory employees -- who live in a basement apartment in 1960 Milwaukee and struggle to find the men of their dreams -- would be played by two of the most beautiful women in Hollywood. Is that a cynical way of looking at it? Yes, it is.
"Always being honest with yourself at all times can be brutal ... It's nice to be able to go home and just be with somebody. You have your bad days. You have your good days. But we're a team. We're in this together," Woods said of Nordegren during an interview with 'Extra.'

Between his ongoing hosting duties for 'Extra' and 'America's Best Dance Crew', as well as his recurring guest role as a plastic surgeon on 'Nip/Tuck,' you wouldn't think he'd have enough time to catch his breath, much less use it to give us the inside scoop on all his upcoming projects.
Yet that's just what he did when AOL TV caught up to him recently, telling us all about the 'Saved By the Bell' reunion, the new children's book he co-wrote with his sister and his ongoing search for a new canine friend. So check out what he had to say, but watch out: you may get exhausted just reading about his amazing schedule.
Sacha Baron Cohen, also known as Borat, was somehow cast as an extra for an episode of NBC's Medium, and in typical Borat fashion he disrupted the scene. In fact, he screwed things up so much that the show had to shut down filming for a while on November 7.
Actually, Cohen wasn't Borat in the footage he was Bruno, one of Cohen's other characters.
Well, ready or not, you're going to get one. Mark McGrath, the Sugar Ray frontman-turned-entertainment-reporter is leaving Extra. Some reports say he's been fired, but The Hollywood Reporter is claiming that he really just wanted to get back to the band.
McGrath has been on hiatus from Sugar Ray for the past three years as he hosted Extra, but now the band is heading back to the studio and Mario Lopez is stepping up to take his spot behind the anchor desk. Lopez's much lauded muscles are apparently too big to share the stage, though. McGrath's co-host, Dayna Devon, has been demoted to Special Correspondent and backup host for Lopez.
I will always look at Lopez as A.C. Slater, so the idea of him becoming a "journalist" kind of makes me laugh. But then again, it's not like Mark McGrath was exactly the second coming of Cronkite. Besides, anyone who could stand 6 inches away from Miss Teen South Carolina as she rambled on about "The Iraq" without completely losing it obviously has some talent.
I'm not a big fan of reality shows, but I really did enjoy The Mole. It lasted two seasons on ABC (not counting the truly stupid Celebrity Mole that came later) and was hosted by Anderson Cooper. Cooper, as you know, is busy over on CNN with his own nightly show, Anderson Cooper 360, so ABC needed a new host for the revival that's coming up later in May. And now they've named him.
Jon Kelley will be the new host of The Mole, the man in charge of guiding contestants (and one spy) through an international game of searches, stunts, and elimination. Kelley used to be an anchor for the syndicated celebrity news show Extra and an anchor for Fox Sports Network.
One issue with being a television writer is that a writer's contributions are not as tangible as certain other creative roles. Only slightly more visible is the director's role. The most tangible and visible is the actor, who is immediately seen on camera.
Currently, the television writers are on strike. There is a good possibility that the actors will strike next year. But what if other people that work in the television studios went on strike, the ones who are even less visible to the public. I think those would also create problems for the industry in different ways. For example...
Last year, as you may recall, season six was often slammed by fans and critics as the WORST SEASON EVER. Who could forget Sanjaya? Oh wait, we did. His 15 minutes of fame only lasted 12.5 minutes. But for all of our Sanjaya-bashing, at least he kept things interesting in an otherwise bland and uninspiring year. Seriously, does anyone even care that Jordin Sparks just released her debut album?
In fact, Simon recently announced that after his contract is up he will be moving on from the show that helped make him a super-rich celebrity.
So a diligent production assistant in Los Angeles, had collected some footage that seems to show the more supportive side of Simon in this TV's Top 5! moment.
