Question: So where's this SVU preview you promised us? Kitty
Ausiello: It's right here, Kitty: Next season's eighth episode (airing in November) features a guest turn by Desperate Housewives co-star Cody Kasch (Zach/Dana) as a white supremacist who is recruiting teens. Oscar winner Marcia Gay Harden also appears. Oh, and (SPOILER ALERT more space) a major SVU player gets shot in the episode. (Hint: It's not Mariska.)
Question: Reading your column is the highlight of my week. How sad is that? Melissa
Ausiello: Don't be so hard on yourself, Missy. It's not like you said TV Tech.
Question: Who do you want to see at Veronica's door: Logan or Duncan? Sturm
Ausiello: Like you even have to ask.
Question: I am sending you, like, my 100th e-mail. I love your column, but I would love it more if you would answer me this about Alias: When is Season 4 getting released on DVD? Phillip
Ausiello: Actually, it was your 32nd e-mail. Alias: The Complete Fourth Season streets in early October.
Question: Got any scoop on David Boreanaz' new Fox show Bones? Is it a Must-See or Must-Flee? Lynn
Ausiello: It's somewhere in the middle. Boreanaz and Emily Deschanel are terrific together, but the convoluted plot lost me halfway through and I ended up turning it off. Of course, as a Cingular customer service rep recently reminded me, I'm not all that bright.
Question: Does ISWATRP stand for "I Slept With A Top Recruiting Person (Ask Ausiello 6/22)?" Mike
Ausiello: Um, no. What kind of slut do you think I am?
Question: "I Slept With A Taiwanese River Person." You dawg!! Mike K.
Ausiello: OK, now I'm getting a little angry.
Question: I heard that Lauren Graham is doing a movie in San Francisco. Can you tell us anything about it? Glenn
Ausiello: That's the first I'm hearing of it. It was my understanding that she was vacationing in Europe over the hiatus. Her TV-daughter Alexis Bledel, on the other hand, is about to start shooting I Am Reed Fish, a romantic comedy costarring Million Dollar Baby's Jay Baruchel.
Question: Oh, my god! The pictures you posted last week show you sitting in a cubicle! Say it isn't so! A great talent, as yourself should have his own office, not just a stinkin' cubicle! Cate
Ausiello: I should point out that it's a double-wide cubicle.
Question: UPN wants more diversity in Veronica Mars (Ask Ausiello 6/22) but they cut the Latino (Weevil) role from 16 to 12 episodes? Huh? Kate
Ausiello: I think contradictory is the word you're looking for, Kate.
