Glee's Thriller of a Super Bowl Episode
Finn (Cory Monteith) fills in for the late Vincent Price to provide the spooky narration for the Fox hit's Super Bowl-episode Thriller tribute. "I'm also one of the zombie folk, which requires about three and a half hours of prosthetic makeup," says Cory. And it sounds as though Artie may be ...

With Batman locked up by Warner Bros.' feature-film department, NBC's The Cape may be the closest thing we'll get to a Dark Knight TV series in the foreseeable future. And that's just fine by creator Tom Wheeler, who has been a major comic-book geek (mostly Marvel) since he was 5.

We asked Baccarin to quiz Badler about lizards, family values and her new incarnation.

Debra has signed on for a February sweeps episode of Law & Order: SVU in a role that reminds me very much of CNN crime fighter Nancy Grace.
SVU executive producer Neal Baer describes Debra's character as...
First Jane Badler, and now Marc Singer! The '80s hunk, who played the original V's strapping lizard slayer Mike Donovan, will appear in the season finale of ABC's updated V as all-new freedom fighter Lars Tremont.
"It was an inevitability," says the confident star, now 62. "You have to include the personalities who started this dynamic. As V grows, it becomes like a big, hungry animal needing nourishment to grow more and more muscle." Whatever you say, Marc, although I might have gone with a reptilian analogy...
