Fox will return to 'The Good Wife' early next year as Canning, the manipulative lawyer who gave Lockhart/Gardner & Bond one heck of a court battle.

"As soon as we saw the dailies of Michael playing Louis Canning, we started pleading with him to return," creators and executive producers Robert and Michelle King told EW. "Luckily he agreed. He's amazing in this role: unpretentiously brave and funny. It's good to have him back."

Fox played Canning in 'Poisoned Pill,' the sixth episode of the CBS drama's second season. Look for him in episode 13, competing with Alicia (Julianna Margulies) to reach homeowners for a class-action lawsuit.

'True Blood' - Eric and the Authority Are Trying to Kill RussellFamiliarity can breed discontent. The vampires on 'True Blood' live for a long time, and so they've had a lot of arguments with each other. And over a thousand-year-period, it's easy to see how simple fighting could ratchet up -- into something much worse. Like the desire to commit murder, for instance.

[Spoiler alert.]

Russell and Eric are having a bit of a feud. It seems that Russell (Denis O'Hare) slaughtered Eric's family a thousand years ago. Well, we can understand how someone could still be angry about that. As revenge, Eric (Alexander Skarsgård) killed Russell's gay lover. So now they're both pretty upset.

'Lie to Me': Your Word Against MineDeceit, murder, and (of all things) a stolen jewel-encrusted egg. We enter the tangled world of juvenile delinquents on 'Lie to Me' (Mon., 8PM ET on Fox).

[Spoiler alert.]

Dr. Cal Lightman (Tim Roth) is called in to investigate a series of crimes involving the delinquents. But of course, this being one of those TV procedural drama-type shows, the bad guy is going to be ... the last person that you would expect. So is the villain one of the kids who already have a criminal record? No -- of course not! Duh!

John Schneider in odd new show

by Brett Love, posted Jun 26th 2008 9:05AM

John Schneider - twentysixmilesJohn Schneider could be back on our television screens soon, if someone will buy the show. The odd part about this one isn't the content, but rather the production. Schneider is starring in twentysixmiles -- a reference to Catalina Island, where the show is being shot -- which is an independently funded production. Executive producer Rob Miller is spending some $5.5 million to shoot six episodes of the show that can serve as a launch to the series, or a trio of movies.

And he's doing the whole thing with no deal in place for broadcast. Ballsy. Despite the lack of a studio deal, they have managed to land some pretty big names to join Schneider. George Segal (Just Shoot Me), Jeffrey Tambor (Arrested Development), and James Denton (Desperate Housewives) are all set to make cameos while Jessica Tuck (Judging Amy), Eric Lange, and Daniel Quinn will be part of the regular cast. Schneider's character is a high powered executive who moves to Catalina Island after his wife divorces him in order to be closer to his children.
