Happy Canada Day! TV's Sexiest Canadians

by Jean Bentley, posted Jul 1st 2011 9:00AM
When you think of Canada, what's the first thing that pops into your mind? Hockey, poutine, lumberjacks, Celine Dion or these attractive people:

Nina Dobrev, Taylor Kitsch
Contrary to popular belief, Canadians can be sexy. REALLY sexy. Case in point: the vampiness of Nina Dobrev in her dual roles on 'The Vampire Diaries'; the long-but-not-too-long hair and aloof-but-still-caring nature of Taylor Kitsch's Tim Riggins on 'Friday Night Lights;' the everything of Nathan Fillion on 'Castle.'

In hono(u)r of Canada Day (and in honor of posting pictures of hot actors on our site), check out AOL TV's list of the sexiest Canadians on TV. It's a holiday weekend, you're not doing any real work anyway ...

Who Should Replace Lisa Edelstein on 'House'?

by Maggie Furlong, posted Jun 23rd 2011 4:00PM
Lisa Edelstein, 'House'Cuddy has always been the voice of reason at Princeton Plainsboro, but next season there'll be a new boss on 'House.'

Lisa Edelstein, the actress whose character has bickered with (and eventually hooked up with) Dr. House, will not be returning for the show's eighth -- and likely final -- season. Instead, we just learned she'll be headed to 'The Good Wife.'

We know Huddy fans don't want to think about it, but who could ever replace her? It's possible they could promote from within, but they probably don't want to ruin the team dynamic either. And if they bumped Wilson up to bossman status, that would certainly complicate his friendship with House even more.

So we've come up with a list of strong contenders ... all women, as it turns out, so I guess we like that sexual tension, too. I mean, someone's gonna have to be the soft feminine shoulder for House to cry on when his favorite sparring partner says goodbye, right?

He's mesmerized by the former Cylon, but Jim's wife Stephanie combats her charms with real love. "How did you know your kiss would break Sophie's spell?" Jim asks her. She replies, "I kissed you for me. I needed you to remember who we are together."

So the master plan to destroy Dr. King's facility is thwarted. "No blast, no nothing," says Mrs. X. Sophie answers, "I don't know what happened. I had everything planned out perfectly." "I'll be calling on you again," says Mrs. X. No she won't...

Wearing a Wire Leads to Disaster on 'Dark Blue'Going undercover to catch a criminal must be a fairly stressful job. Still, if you're going to do it, at least make sure that you're good at keeping a straight face. On the latest episode of 'Dark Blue' (Wed., 9PM ET on TNT), the team uses a crook to ensnare a crook. But after that ... things go horribly wrong.

[Spoiler alert.]

A twenty-year-old is killed by a loan shark for his gambling debts. So the 'Dark Blue' detectives send fellow criminal Billy (Rick Hoffman) in with a wire, in order to record a confession from the bad guy. Billy gets his confession. But he's terrible at hiding his emotions. When the loan shark fesses up, Billy smirks. No! Don't do that! Now the bad guy knows that Billy is a snitch.

On 'Dark Blue,' Ty and Carter Get 'Jacked' by Drug DealersHow far undercover is too undercover to go? On 'Dark Blue' (Wed., 9PM ET on TNT), our heroes infiltrate the underground world of drug dealers. But they may have gone too far, this time around.

[Spoiler alert.]

Ty and Carter (played by Omari Hardwick and Dylan McDermott) try to perform a "sting" operation. In this case, though, they seem to have gotten too close to the criminals. Not only do they get outsmarted, but they also lose the money they brought to buy drugs -- which was part of the sting. How do they lose it? They get robbed.

Also, Carter gets bashed on the head by one of the criminals, and is knocked unconscious. See, this is the "danger zone" with going undercover. If you get too mixed up with the bad guys, then there's always the chance that you're just giving them the upper hand.

I'm talking about Charlie Harper, who has had his man berries crushed by Chelsea and the engagement and the prospect of a June wedding at the Bel Air hotel. For the first time in a long time, Charlie had his old spunky, devil-may-care attitude back. What a relief!
