Jacob is coming to Supernatural

by Bob Sassone, posted Jun 27th 2009 10:46AM
Lost - JacobIn the season finale of Lost, we saw the mysterious Jacob get stabbed by Ben. Of course, we have no idea if that means Jacob will be killed or just injured (maybe he can't even die like a normal person can), but if he is indeed not on the show anymore, actor Mark Pellegrino has secured another gig.

Michael Ausiello over at EW.com says that Pellegrino will play the devil on The CW's Supernatural.

Who's the "major female character" that's pregnant?

by Jane Boursaw, posted Apr 25th 2009 9:18AM
Meredith Grey pregnant?EW.com's Michael Ausiello posted this blind item yesterday: "A major female character on a popular and highly rated hour-long drama series will learn that she's pregnant next month."

Other tidbits: The expectant character isn't thrilled to be pregnant. The timing, both personally and professionally, is really bad. The baby daddy's going through some stuff. And the bun in her oven may have company.

Ok, let's speculate here. My first thought is that it's Meredith Grey on Grey's Anatomy, since her real-life alter-ego Ellen Pompeo actually IS pregnant. But the timing isn't all that bad. She and Derek are getting married. They can use a distraction with Izzie's cancer taking center stage. And although he's had some issues, Derek seems to have pulled it together.

How I Met Your Mother will reveal "the mother" this season?

cast of How I Met Your Mother
Really? Ausiello seems to think so, but I have my doubts. I can see how he might think that to be true when he says Carter Bays told him the central mystery of the show is going to be (sort-of) resolved. However, I noticed that Ausiello didn't quote Bays here. Now, what he did quote Bays as saying is:

"At the end of the season, we will address the title of our show," reveals Bays, adding that the last four episodes will feature "big events in the lives of our characters -- specifically Ted (Josh Radnor). We're going to wrap up some things that have been left dangling."

Newcomer cast as Brothers & Sisters long-lost sib

by Allison Waldman, posted Oct 20th 2008 9:01PM
B & SWho is the missing Walker sibling? For a year, the answer was Rebecca, but DNA has proven that that's not William Walker's unaccounted for child. It's a character named Ryan Lafferty and today a newcomer named Luke Grimes has been cast in the role.

When the storyline revealed that there was a Ryan somewhere out there, rumors were rife that a big name would land the role. Jason Ritter and Jason Dohring were in the running, but Grimes is set to sign on the dotted line and his resume is pretty slim, just a couple of minor movies, Assassination of a High School President and All the Boys Love Mandy Lane.

Two new characters coming to Lost

by Bob Sassone, posted Aug 7th 2008 1:25PM
LostDon't worry, their names aren't Nikki and Paolo.

Michael Ausiello over at Entertainment Weekly has the exclusive news about two new characters that are coming to the Lost world. No word yet on whether these characters will be on the island or off of the island, but they sound intriguing.

One is a man in his late 30s/early 40s named Caesar, who is described as "dangerous, physical, and extremely intelligent" and that he's "as skillful at charming people as he is at killing them." Sounds like an assassin type, no? The other character is Ilanna, a female in her late 20s/early 30s who is described as European, intelligent, dangerous, and "used to getting her own way." Except for the European part, that sounds like a lot of the women I've dated.

Lost starts filming its new season in less than two weeks, so we'll have the answers soon enough. And by answers I mean "more questions." This is Lost, after all.

As the strike winds down, what's next?

by Joel Keller, posted Feb 8th 2008 9:35AM
Honk 4 writersDepending on who you want to listen to -- or believe -- the end of the writers' strike is a done deal. Michael Eisner, former Disney CEO and current CNBC host, thinks "it's over," as he told the network's Fast Money show. Nikki Finke, in her usual subtle way, takes pains to debunk Eisner's expertise on the matter, saying that "Eisner hasn't mattered since 2004-2005 when he was kicked to the curb by Disney and its shareholders."

Still, Finke does give a timeline of how she's been informed the next few days will go; tomorrow seems to be the crucial day, as the WGA membership on both coasts will have "informational meetings" before the governing board of each coast's guild decides whether to put the tentative deal up for a vote. If the informational meetings go well, the union bigwigs may call off the strike before the vote, anticipating the deal will win with the rank-and-file.

Michael Ausiello over at TV Guide has a long list of television shows and how many new episodes are left. I'll give you a quick list of the most popular shows, and you can click on over to see the others (not everything is listed):

Jason Katims added to Bionic Woman team

by Brett Love, posted Sep 13th 2007 1:00PM
Michelle Ryan - Bionic WomanNBC has brought in Friday Night Lights executive producer Jason Katims to consult on Bionic Woman, after Glen Morgan left over those curious 'creative differences.' It's certainly not a new story, a producer getting an extra iron in the fire even though they have a show already on the schedule. Although, usually we see this with producers who have established hits on their hands. This one comes as a bit of a surprise to me, given the tenuous nature of FNL's position.

Don't get me wrong, I'm as much in the bag for the show, and Katims, as anybody. But we have to be realistic and admit that the renewal did come as something of a surprise after the way the show performed in the ratings last season. Renewing it was a gamble for the network, so is pulling one of the people credited with giving it that quality away to work on another show really the best idea? I certainly think that Katims can be a help to the Bionic Woman team, but I hope that Friday Night Lights doesn't suffer for it.

Why Kristen Bell isn't doing Lost - UPDATE

by Anna Johns, posted Aug 14th 2007 8:59AM
kristen bellKristen Bell, formerly of Veronica Mars, was reportedly asked to join the cast of Lost next season as a new, recurring character (one of The Others!). But, Bell has apparently turned down the opportunity to live and work in Hawaii in favor of living and working on Broadway in New York City.

According to TV Guide's Michael Ausiello, Bell will take over the lead role in the Broadway version of Legally Blonde in February. He's putting two-and-two together to come to this conclusion, but it seems pretty logical. She has wanted to do Broadway in the past, but her Veronica Mars schedule would never accommodate it.

This seems like an...interesting...career choice. A role on Lost would boost her visibility with mainstream viewers, while a role on Broadway will only make her visible to those who are into that sort of thing. But, if Broadway's your dream, go for it!

Sorry, guys. Kristen Bell is not joining Lost

by Anna Johns, posted Aug 11th 2007 4:09PM
kristen bellAll casting rumors for Lost seem to have been debunked almost as quickly as they spread.

Last week, Isabelle reported on word that Veronica Mars' Kristen Bell and Prison Break's Peter Stormare were being considered for two new recurring roles on Lost. The Stormare rumor got squashed pretty quickly, and today TV Guide's Ausiello is reporting that Kristen Bell won't be joining the cast, either. The reason, he says, is because Bell didn't want to relocate to Hawaii.

Well, shucks. I adore Stormare and would love to see Bell get a gig that'll give her a wider audience.

JerichoMaybe Jericho's fans aren't nuts after all.

After the serialized apocalypse-themed program was canceled by CBS, its rabid fans sent the network thousands of pounds of nuts, egged on by a well-organized internet campaign to save the show. Now, the ever-tuned-in Mike Ausiello is reporting that the network brass is listening, and is in talks to bring back the show for eight episodes, to possibly air at mid-season.

Mark Harmon threatens to quit NCIS

by Bob Sassone, posted Apr 24th 2007 4:22PM

NCISMichael Ausiello at TV Guide is reporting a big scoop: NCIS star Mark Harmon is threatening to walk off the hit CBS show.

Citing inside sources, Ausiello says that Harmon has always been fed up with producer Donald Bellisario's (Magnum, P.I., JAG, Quantum Leap) "chaotic management style" and wants off the show. The source also says that Harmon is one of the nicest guys on television and that he's in the right on this one. The dispute is described as "a big standoff."

So I'll ask you readers the same thing that Ausiello asks his readers: can NCIS survive without Mark Harmon, or is he the main reason to watch the show?
