NBC's Law & Order: SVU has conjured up one wicked guest star for an upcoming spring episode. Former Charmed witch Rose McGowan, who played the bewitching Paige on the long-running WB hit, has been cast as another kind of temptress.
"Our episode is called Bombshell and Rose McGowan is the ultimate bombshell," SVU executive producer Neal Baer told me this past weekend at the Writer's Guild Awards. "Rose plays a grifter named Cassandra who strikes swinging men who frequent sex clubs. And we're very excited to have her."

Fox treated its Super Bowl viewers to an early glimpse of the dinosaurs that will be terrorizing the new residents of Terra Nova when the prehistoric time-traveling adventure series premieres May 23.
Though the dino looks pretty similar to the creatures that ripped apart Terra Nova executive producer Steven Spielberg's Jurassic Park, his colleagues promise that the full spectrum of creatures they are conceptualizing will be unlike anything seen before.
"Steven Spielberg was very adamant about this," says executive producer Rene Echevarria. In place of the overused T-Rex, which has played the villain in nearly every prehistoric representation on film, the show's big bad will be ...
When Gwyneth Paltrow's substitute teacher, Holly Holliday, returns to Glee's McKinley High on March 8, she'll be instructing the students in sex education. "All the kids are lost in their sexual knowledge," teases Heather Morris (Brittany).
Expect Holly to enlighten both Brittany — who "still thinks a baby comes from the stork," says Heather — and Finn, who "may finally learn that you actually can't get girls pregnant in a hot tub without intercourse," says Cory Monteith. That stunner could harm Finn's renewed romance with Quinn, who once told Finn that was how she got knocked up...

At a presentation of ABC's winter programming, new ABC Entertainment president Paul Lee told reporters he "wasn't quite there yet" regarding a renewal for Desperate Housewives, leaving fans to fret that they were about to spend their final months with Susan, Lynette, Bree and Gaby.
Now in its seventh season, the primetime soap continues to be a lucrative international ratings winner...
The lovely Jane Seymour has been added to the cast of Castle's upcoming episode set in the world of a fictional daytime soap opera. Jane will play the elegant Gloria Chambers and joins a growing guest cast that includes All My Children favorites Cameron Mathison and Rebecca Budig and The Young and the Restless' Corbin Bernsen.
Though Jane has never appeared on an American daytime soap...
Betty White, Robert Redford
It seems all the world has embraced Betty White — except for Robert Redford.
