Just three days before its September 22 premiere, ABC's new Charlie's Angels finally settled on an actor to replace Robert Wagner as the voice of detective agency owner Charles Townsend — former Alias star Victor Garber. "They were in a panic. I think my agent was negotiating with someone in the Emmys audience," says Garber, who has the same gentlemanly grace as the late John Forsythe, Charlie on the original series and in two feature films. "This is an out-of-the-blue, out-of-body experience. I'm just happy they settled on me."
When ABC premieres its new Charlie's Angels tomorrow night, the voice of Charlie will sound awfully familiar to fans of another female-driven ABC adventure series.
Victor Garber, who starred opposite Jennifer Garner as Alias' Jack Bristow from 2001-2006, will take over the...
Ken Kercheval, Larry Hagman
J.R. Ewing is not going to be happy about this one darn bit: TNT's new Dallas, premiering next summer, has recruited Ken Kercheval to resume his iconic role of Cliff Barnes, the sad-sack oilman who was repeatedly duped by Larry Hagman's scheming J.R. during the soap's original 1978-1991 run.
Last season on House, Dr. Taub (Peter Jacobson) learned he had impregnated two women. And come Episode 5, after House exits prison and the action returns to Princeton-Plainsboro Teaching Hospital, we will see Taub "reaping the benefits of my exploits," says Jacobson.

With preparations for Howard and Bernadette's wedding taking place throughout the season, the Big Bang Theory cast share what they think their characters should give the future Mr. and Mrs. Wolowitz.
It wouldn't be Dallas without a good old-fashioned Ewing/Barnes feud. Although TNT's Dallas pilot, set to air in summer 2012, was Barnes-free, I've just learned that Ken Kercheval has signed on to reprise his role as J.R. Ewing's No. 1 nemesis, Cliff Barnes, in....
Wendie Malick, Laura San Giacomo
After reuniting Valerie Bertinelli, Jane Leeves and Betty White with their former sitcom co-stars, TV Land's Hot in Cleveland is finally giving some reunion love to Wendie Malick. In its third season, the series will bring Wendie back together with her Just Shoot Me! co-star Laura San Giacomo. The ladies worked side by side on the NBC sitcom from 1997-2003, with Laura's Maya often butting heads with Wendie's Nina Van Horn.
Laura will share most of her Cleveland scenes with Valerie's Melanie Moretti....
Creator Marc Cherry tells me he's known since the first season of ABC's Desperate Housewives how he wants the show to end. That said, while he's reluctant to offer specifics, he promises "a satisfying and logical end" in the May finale. "There is an idea behind this show that has to do with the frustrations of ordinary women, so you'll see my feelings about why that life is worth it," he says. "There will be huge, life-changing events for all the women."
My prediction? Mirroring the drama's premiere, in which murderer Mary Alice blew her brains out, the cover-up of Gaby's stepdad's murder will lead one of the Housewives to attempt suicide....
