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?
CSI: NY will kick off 2011 by introducing JAG star David James Elliott as FBI agent Russ Josephson, the ex-husband of Jo (Sela Ward), who will get in the way of the simmering chemistry between Jo and Mac (Gary Sinise). "I think he wants Jo back — and there is electricity," says David of his character, the father of Jo's son, whom we'll meet later this season. "Russ refers to their divorce as ...
The Vampire Diaries
What turned The Vampire Diaries' Katherine Pierce (aka Katerina Petrova) into a cold-blooded killer? Nina Dobrev (Elena/Katherine/Katerina) says we'll find out on the November 11 episode when the action flashes back to 1490s Bulgaria.
"We find out how ...
What's coming up on Glee's November 9 episode that is so big and top-secret that creator Ryan Murphy sat the whole cast down to tell them to keep their mouths shut? We'll find out mid-way through this Kurt-centric episode, titled "Never Been Kissed."
"It's so big that we had a full meeting about it that we can't say anything," says Chris Colfer (Kurt). "That's never happened before. I will say it's about Kurt."
When he read the reveal in his script, Chris went through a rollercoaster of feelings...
Julie Bowen and Ty Burrell
The Dunphy and Pritchett families never do anything halfway. So it's no surprise to see Modern Family undergo a Transylvanian transformation for its big Halloween episode.
"Claire [Julie Bowen] is obsessed with Halloween. She's the housewife in the neighborhood with the front-yard graveyard and a maze that trick-or-treaters have to walk through to get their candy," teases Jesse Tyler Ferguson (Mitchell), who in real life plans to wear his character's muscle-bound Spider-Man costume to a party being thrown at the home of his TV boyfriend...
I asked some of our favorite TV stars to reveal their favorite Halloween costumes of all time. Here's what they said:
Chris Colfer (Glee): "I was a Venus Fly Trap when I was 18. My hands were the plant and then I spiked my hair and made it into a fly with wings. I made the costume myself and I won the best costume prize at the party."
Pruitt Taylor Vince
At the end of The Mentalist's November 18 episode, titled "Red Moon" and directed by series star Simon Baker, something will happen at CBI that casts suspicion on the organization's employees.
Enter Agent J.J. Laroche, played by character actor Pruitt Taylor Vince, the head of CBI's Internal Affairs. He arrives December 9 and will recur in five or six more episodes this the season. The character is described as...
Mele Kalikimaka! (That's Hawaiian for Merry Christmas). In honor of the holiday, Hawaii Five-0 executive producer Peter Lenkov is giving fans a gift — the introduction of the villainous Wo Fat, Steve McGarrett's archenemy from the original 1968—1980 series.
Just in time for their holiday episode (expect to see Scott Caan's Danny as Santa), Lenkov is planning the return of James Marsters as Victor Hesse, who murdered McGarrett's father in the pilot and, we'll learn, has a connection to Wo Fat.
