The Prison Break Cast Shares Their  Burning Questions

Wade Williams, Wentworth Miller, James Hiroyuki Liao, and William Fichtner, Prison Break

Just in time for Prison Break’s two-hour season premiere (tonight at 8 pm/ET, Fox), the show’s cast has some lingering questions for exec producer Matt Olmstead. We were happy to serve as middlemen.

Dominic Purcell (Lincoln Burrows): Where is that bag of money and when do I get my hands on it?
Matt Olmstead:
This is a question you have posed numerous times, Dominic, and the answer is Linc ain't getting it! The money — some $5 million stashed away by Westmoreland, a prisoner Michael befriended in the first season — is at the bottom of a lagoon in Panama. When the authorities came and dredged the shallow area for clues to the murder of Company operative Bill Kim, they found the bag. There were just a couple of bad apples in the normally trustworthy Panamanian police, but that's all it takes. You'll probably find some Panamanian cops with speedboats and vacation homes.

Jon Hamm Shows Us the Man Behind the Gray Suit

Jon Hamm, Mad Men

Jon Hamm leads the brilliant and much-nominated cast of Mad Men (Sundays at 10 pm/ET, AMC) as Sterling Cooper's stoic and sometimes mysterious top ad man Don Draper. Though Hamm's fictional counterpart might be hard to crack, we got the actor to open about everything from his two- (or three- or four-) martini lunches and why he wants a guest role on 30 Rock.

TV Guide: You play an advertising genius. Is there a product you'd endorse in exchange for a lifetime supply?
Jon Hamm:
Budweiser. I'm from St. Louis, c'mon. I know that it's been bought out by a foreign company — don't talk to me about it — it's a big part of the city I grew up in. But God bless beer. That's two things Americans love: God and beer.

TV Guide: Did you ever buy anything "as seen on TV"?
Hamm: My dad had one of read more

Earl's Jason Lee Trades Jail for Chipmunks

Jason Lee, My Name Is Earl and Alvin and the Chipmunks

My Name Is Earl's (Thursdays, 8 pm/ET, NBC) star on acting with the Chipmunks, why he spent time in jail and his plan of action if the strike continues.

TV Guide: In your new movie, Alvin and the Chipmunks, you're without your trademark Earl mustache. Did losing it feel strange?
Jason Lee:
It was so liberating, and it only takes five or six weeks to grow it back. [Pause] People are just absolutely consumed with that — every time this comes up, there's, like, six questions about the mustache. In the '70s, with Tom Selleck on Magnum, P.I., it was the norm. It's funny how a mustache could be so ironic now.

TV Guide: Your costars in the new movie Alvin and the Chipmunks are animated — how'd that work when you were shooting a scene?
Lee:

Nine Things You Don't Know about Grey's Chyler Leigh

Chyler Leigh, Grey’s Anatomy

It was like déjà vu from the very first episode of Grey's Anatomy (premiering tonight at 9pm/ET, ABC). Late last season, Dr. Derek "McDreamy" Shepherd met a young babe, played by Chyler Leigh, in the Emerald City Bar. Though they flirted, this time he stopped short of showing her his bedside manner. And thank heavens — the girl in question turned out to be Lexie Grey, Meredith's half sister and the newest addition to Seattle Grace's intern program. "We met with a lot of young actresses, but Chyler stood out — she had a quality that felt right and real to me," creator Shonda Rhimes says about choosing Grey's newest cast member. "It felt like she could be Meredith's sister, but she had a depth that was very interesting." Here, the 25-year-old North Ca read more

Hot Preview: Sully Has a Question to Ask Bones!

Eddie McClintock and Emily Deschanel, Bones

Dr. Temperance "Bones" Bren­nan can solve murders just by looking at victims' skeletons, but when it comes to affairs of the heart, she's clueless.

"Brennan has been abandoned by her father and her brother — the closest men in her life — and she can't let go of that," says Emily Deschanel, the plucky actress who plays the title character on Fox's Bones (Wednesdays at 8 pm/ET). "She's pretty much fearless in the rest of her life, but fear gov­erns her relationships."

Fans of the show be­lieve that her partner in crime-busting, FBI agent Seeley Booth (David Boreanaz), is her unacknowledged and unconsummated true love. But then along came Booth's old colleague, FBI agent Tim "Sully" Sullivan (read more

Eric Mabius Talks About "Rolling Around" with Ugly Betty's Boss Lady

Eric Mabius, Ugly Betty

For the past few weeks, Eric Mabius — who plays the resident lothario on ABC's Ugly Betty (Thursdays at 8 pm/ET) — has been, as he puts it, "rolling around on floors and pool tables" with his boss, Salma Hayek. But, of course, it's all in the name of hard work.

"Luckily, I am able to forget who she is," cracks the 35-year-old married actor about the show's curvaceous executive producer. "It would be exponentially more unnerving if I remembered that she's my boss."

So what does Hayek think about exercising her executive privileges? "It is a little embarrassing that I cast myself as his lover," she admits.

Mabius' on-screen affair with the big-screen beauty provides his character, "Mode" magazine's bed-hopping editor Da read more

How Idol's Elliott Won... Our Hearts

American Idol's Elliott Yamin

There was a time when no one wanted to hear Elliott Yamin sing. "I was always loud, interrupting my mom on the phone or my brother doing his homework," the 27-year-old Virginian recalls with a laugh. "I would annoy everybody."

Pompeo Ponders Grey's Matters

Ellen Pompeo, Grey's Anatomy

Ellen Pompeo of ABC's red-hot Grey's Anatomy (Sundays at 10 pm/ET) opens up to TV Guide about her gypsy soul, her red-carpet style and how she really feels about Meredith and McDreamy.

TV Guide: You've been in movies with Jake Gyllenhaal, Leonardo DiCaprio and Luke Wilson. Why did you switch to TV?
Ellen Pompeo:
When there's a very strong female character, it's hard to walk away. In all the great, interesting films, the parts for me were really small, and the only lead par read more
