TNT is currently negotiating deals with veteran Dallas stars Larry Hagman, Patrick Duffy and Linda Gray to head down south in early February to join a cast of hot, younger Ewings for a continuation of the 1978-91 primetime soap. And a lot has changed since we last visited with the Ewings in CBS's 1996 and 1998 reunion movies.
Saturday Night Live, Women of SNL
Tina Fey has become BFFs with Bravo head Andy Cohen, the man we have to thank (or blame) for the Real Housewives franchise. He recently spoofed his Housewives reunion shows on NBC's Women of SNL special, while she guested on his Watch What Happens chat show. Is a 30 Rock appearance next? Sounds like it's possible thanks to a crazy new 2011 plot.
Lee Majors, Stephen Moyer
Lee Majors, who kicked off his career as young buck Heath Barkley in the 1965-69 TV western The Big Valley, has been tapped to play his old character's father, Tom Barkley, in a 2011 big-screen remake. "I have a beard I've been growing since July because they keep pushing back the start date," says Lee, who will get to kiss Jessica Lange (as his wife Victoria Barkley) before he's bumped off. "The story's very true to our original pilot. They just backed it up a few years so you get to know the father and set up his affair with another lady."
The delays in shooting...
When Hot in Cleveland ended its first season, the fate of Betty White's character, Elka Ostrovsky, was left hanging. In case you missed it, Elka was arrested after ...
On the Paramount lot, two toddler boys dressed as junior jocks (one sporting a very familiar Puck-style Mohawk) are chasing three tiny cheerleaders costumed in red Cheerios skirts around a soundstage. "They're the cutest little babies ever," sighs Amber Riley, admitting to a particular soft spot for the shy little girl playing a miniature Mercedes. "She looks like I did when I was her age — with two little Afro-puffs."

These wide-eyed tots, still too young to even dream about one day hitting it as big as their grown-up doppelgängers, have been corralled to shoot a fantasy sequence taking place in the mind of a feverish Mr. Schue (Matthew Morrison), who is replaced in the November 16 episode by a peculiar substitute teacher played by none other than Oscar winner ...
Scott Caan, who plays investigator Danny "Danno" Williams, that cocky, huggable bulldog you see strutting his stuff each week on Hawaii Five-0, is not so different from his character. Both have been struggling to adjust to a new island home (Danny's left New Jersey to be closer to his daughter, while Caan jets back to L.A. every chance he gets to visit with his girlfriend). Both live in the shadow of a larger-than-life presence (Danny's superior, former Navy SEAL Steve McGarrett, and Caan's real-life pops, Oscar nominee James Caan). And both are all about the work, with little patience for frivolity.
Jennifer Morrison and Josh Radnor
Ted (Josh Radnor) sees a whole other side of new frenemy Zoey Van Smoot (Jennifer Morrison) on tonight's How I Met Your Mother (8/7c, CBS) when the pretty protestor ditches her picket sign for Prada at a black-tie fund-raiser held at New York's Natural History Museum.
House, Amber Tamblyn
There he goes again. Dr. House (Hugh Laurie) has just horrified Princeton-Plainsboro Teaching Hospital's new med student, Martha M. Masters (Amber Tamblyn), with a typically inappropriate question about her sex life. But as soon as the House director yells, "Cut," the looks of disgust on both Laurie and Tamblyn's faces give way to warm smiles.
Even superheroes need a hug every once in a while, so who better to give a big squeeze to No Ordinary Family super dad Jim Powell (Michael Chiklis) than the guy whose weepy hugs in the 1979 tearjerker The Champ won him a Golden Globe?
