Coherent storylines on Glee may be a thing of the past, but who cares? Ryan Murphy is giving us mini-Puck!

Season 4 of Glee is gaining a few new faces, all of which are perfectly chiseled and adorable. Terra Nova's Dean Geyer has been cast as an upperclassman at NYADA who shows an interest in Rachel ( Finchel is officially over? Could we really be so lucky?) while Jacob Artist of Blue Lagoon: The Awakening will be back at McKinley High as Puck's younger half brother, whom, until now, no one has mentioned existing. And so the continuity problems continue...

In other Ryan Murphy casting news, Season 2 of American Horror Story is adding another addition to its already full cast. Carnivale's Clea Duvall will appear on multiple episodes of the new season, which is set in an East Coast insane asylum. With all the new casting, we're just surprised that Ryan Murphy isn't working on The American Horror Story Project as well. After all, Glee Project winner Samuel and his dead facial expressions would totally rock a catatonic role.

Surprisingly, the latest addition to the new season of Hart of Dixie isn't a shirtless Southern gentleman. Golden Brooks of Girlfriends will join the cast as Ruby Jeffries, who moves back to town and quickly becomes a new friend for Zoe. Considering that Zoe has alienated most of the other women in the town by stealing nearly all the male attention (she's just so adorably sassy!), Hart could probably use a seasoned girlfriend in her life to stomp out any future cat fights.

Fox has just announced that new series The Mindy Project and Ben & Kate will be released online on August 27 before their official premiere dates. While fans of The Office will probably love to get their hands on The Mindy Project early, watching yet-another sitcom about an incompetent brother and his uptight sister isn't exactly on the top of anyone's must-watch list.

Adam Baldwin of Chuck has been cast on the new season of Law and Order: SVU as Capt. Steven Harris, the squad's new interim captain. Harris will take over Donald Cragen's duties while Cragen is dealing with all that pesky legal aftermath that comes with being accused of murder. Should have resigned earlier, Cragen -- you could be in Boca by now.

Sofia Vergara will guest star on two Seth McFarlane shows next season, both Family Guy and The Cleveland Show.

When TV executives find a new trend, they sure do run with it. Between MTV's anticipated Scream project, the new Silence of the Lambs's Hannibal Lector series and the prequel to Psycho, it's hard not to find a horror flick that isn't in some stage of television development. The latest horror story to be adapted is The Legend of Sleepy Hollow, which currently has two series circulating around Hollywood. The first, from Missing writers Grant Scharbo and Patrick Macmanus is in talks with The CW while the other from Hawaii Five-0 producers Alex Kurtzman and Roberto Orci has already been picked up by Fox with a pilot commitment. Sure, the Headless Horseman is fun and all, but we'd be way more excited to see Leprechaun re-imagined for TV.
