Eli Stone Has a Lot of New Friends

<I>Eli Stone</I> Has a Lot of New Friends Finally, some stuntcasting news that doesn't make me want to stab things. After that whole Katie Holmes thing and Regis on How I Met Your Mother and anyone who's ever been in a tabloid on Ugly Betty, my rage problems were getting the best of me. Anyway, rage subsiding! Sigourney Weaver will guest on Eli Stone next season, playing Eli's psychologist, a character who, you know, kinda has her work cut out for her. Eli Stone isn't really my thing, but I love me some Sigourney Weaver, and anyone who was in Alias (Victor Garbor) or Hackers (Johnny Lee Miller) has my vote for life (yes, that includes Angelina. Yes, I still love her despite all the husband-stealing and hypocrisy and whatnot. No, my enthusiasm for Angelina does not mean I'm automatically going to try to hook up with your husband, so stop making that panicked face for crying out loud, god!), so maybe I will give the show a second chance when these episodes air. See what casting legitimate actors who can show up and play a character and actually do something useful does, Hollywood? It's effective! Now get Naomi Campbell and Nicole Richie off my TV!

Daisies, Dirty and Stone Get Canned

<I>Daisies</I>, <I>Dirty</I> and <I>Stone</I> Get Canned

OK. I've finally stopped weeping and think I can handle writing this post. After lots of speculation, and a whole freakin' heap of denial on my part, ABC officially decided not to pick up Pushing Daisies. To be fair, two other sophomore series, Dirty Sexy Money and Eli Stone, also got axed by the alphabet network. They refuse to actually say cancelled, which just ticks me off more. Why give people the false hope (no matter how minuscule that may be) that there's a chance they could change their minds. It's just mean. Maybe they just want people to send them free pies.

CSI: Things Kurt Russell Could Do Instead

CSI: Things Kurt Russell Could Do Instead Upon hearing the news that Kurt Russell, my favorite movie star in the whole damn universe, is a leading contender to take over William Peterson's role on CSI, I had mixed emotions. First I was like, "The Kurt! On the TV! Yes!" But then I remembered that I don't watch CSI, I've never even seen CSI, and the only things I know about CSI are that they talk about pubic hair on it a lot (Reno 911 told me!) and that it's my 90-year-old grandmother's favorite show. We don't watch the same shows because she's 66 years older than I am, so naturally we have different tastes in what she likes to call "progr'ms."

Clutch the Heartstrings! More Greg Berlanti!

Clutch the Heartstrings! More Greg Berlanti! ABC's love affair with writer/producer/perpetual hit series creator/dude who doesn't seem to require sleep Greg Berlanti marches on with today's news that he has signed on for five more years and likely a boatload more cash (The Hollywood Reporter even calls it a "megadeal" - oooh! Megadeal!) with the network. Berlanti's already quite the busy bee over at ABC, as he has his hand in Brothers & Sisters, Eli Stone and Dirty Sexy Money all simultaneously, which frankly makes me think of that "How many jobs you got?!" In Living Color sketch, which in turn makes me feel uncomfortable. But I digress...
