- Actor Christopher Meloni is joining True Blood as a series regular in Season 5. This makes us happy for many reasons: 1) Heâ€™s back on TV. 2) Heâ€™s back on HBO. 3) Heâ€™s going to play, according to Michael Ausiello of TVLine.com, a powerful vampire which will (magnificently) put him in Bill and Ericâ€™s orbit. This is such cool news. Unfortunately, Meloniâ€™s no longer on Law & Order: SVU, but weâ€™re totally digging the fact heâ€™s returning to HBO, where he once starred in the prison drama, Oz. May this role be as freakinâ€™ fantastic as Chris Keller was. And as scary too.
- Meanwhile, thereâ€™s a bit of other casting news weâ€™re ecstatic over. EW.comâ€™s Tanner Stransky reported that William DeVane is joining the cast of ABCâ€™s Revenge as Conrad Graysonâ€™s dad, Edward. This is huge in the primetime soap world. This means that the man who awesomely played the villainous Gregory Sumner on the late great CBS soap Knots Landing will be Henry Czernyâ€™s father. Two great actors. Canâ€™t wait for this to materialize on our Wednesday nights in 2012.
- SPOILER ALERT: Pretty Little Liars star Lucy Hale (Aria) tweeted some big news this week. We will find out who â€œAâ€ is in the showâ€™s Season 2 finale that is set to air in March. Just knowing that bit of news is helpful. Weâ€™re so happy the show is going there this soon. New PLL episodes start up again Monday, January 2 at 8/7c on ABC Family.
- Patrick J. Adams, Mike from USA Network’s Suits, was nominated for a SAG Award. He’s up for Best Actor in a Drama Series and is included alongside such heavyweight names as Boardwalk Empire‘s Steve Buscemi, Friday Night Lights star Kyle Chandler, Breaking Bad‘s Bryan Cranston and Dexter‘s Michael C. Hall. Love this news particularly since this could help put a great show even more on the mainstream map. Suits is an excellent series that returns next summer (why so long USA?). If you haven’t started watching this show yet, we highly recommend you catch up.
- Patrick’s fellow USA Network actor, Callie Thorne, got some good news of her own. She’s not only the star of Necessary Roughness, she’s also a Golden Globe nominee. Thorne’s up for Best Actress in a Television Drama Series. Her competition includes: Homeland‘s Claire Danes, The Killing‘s Mireille Enos, Julianne Margulies from The Good Wife and Madeleine Stowe from Revenge. Congrats to Callie! The nominations for both Callie and Patrick J. Adams were a bit of a surprise to everyone in Hollywood, but you know what? We’ll allow it. Like Suits, Necessary Roughness is a great show. Consider us on board for Season 2.
- Alan Cumming‘s Eli Gold is finally getting some love onÂ The Good Wife. Personally, we’d like to see him coupled up withÂ America Ferrera‘s Natalie Flores, butÂ we’re just glad he’s going to be spending more time outside the office soon. Who is this lucky lady? According toÂ Ask Ausiello, we’ve already met her this season. IWe’re rackingÂ our brainsÂ trying to think if he’s had sparks with anyone (except his ex). Who do you think it’ll be?
- According toÂ THR, Mark Moses has been cast inÂ The Killing. He’ll play aÂ new detective who joins the Seattle PD to help solve Rosie Larsen’s murder. You may knowÂ Mark Moses from Desperate Housewives orÂ Mad Men. WhatÂ we love about this versatile actor is his ability to play almost anything. So while some may speculate that he’s somehow involved in Rosie’s death (because, at this point, it’s still possible),Â we’re looking forward to seeing how he interacts with Linden and Holder. He could really shake things up andÂ we think that’s what this case needs. The Killing returns this spring on AMC.
- WeÂ love Desmond Harrington and can’t get enough of him on the small screen so imagineÂ our delighted surprise whenÂ Meg Masters of TV Line revealed that he’d be in the season 3 premiere of Justified.Â We know and love him from Gossip Girl and Dexter andÂ we’re so happy to see him on one ofÂ our favorite shows. The fact that he’s associated with Jere Burns’ Wynn Duffy signals some very bad things to come. Justified returns Tuesday, January 17th at 10/9 c. If you’d like to catch up on season two, FX is repeating those episodes now.
