I am so excited for the "Cuffed" episode of Castle. What can you tell me? —Erin
ADAM: Castle and Beckett, handcuffed on a bed together, with no recollection of how they got there — what could possibly go right wrong? As you might imagine, the duo finds themselves in a number of awkward — and suggestive —positions as they try to escape. At one point, Beckett even asks Castle to lift up her shirt. Rawr! (That sexist sound is also a hint.)
Will Max and Caroline ever hit their goal on 2 Broke Girls? — Jen
NATALIE: I know, right? These girls need some quick cash. What could they do, what could they...? No! Not...
Timothy Hutton and Gina Bellman
The con goes on: TNT has ordered a fifth season of Leverage.
The network has ordered 15 additional episodes, which will begin airing in summer 2012. The show's fourth season, which served as a lead-in to the recently renewed Falling Skies, has averaged 4.8 million viewers, a 10 percent increase over the previous season...
Timothy Hutton, Gina Bellman
Leverage executive producer Dean Devlin says Season 4 is all about consequences, and few events are likely to have more fallout than the hookup between Nate and Sophie in the Season 3 finale.
Summer TV: Get scoop on your favorite returning shows
Devlin says the writers considered the "Moonlighting Curse" before agreeing to pair up Nate (Timothy Hutton) and Sophie (Gina Bellman). "It was a big, well-talked-out decision and we were very nervous about the idea," Devlin tells TVGuide.com. "Every season, we've tried to end the season as though it's our last. So we thought if last season was our last, we wanted them to be together. But we also threw in a big "Whoops!" at the end when they realize they're in bed together."
And that "whoops" will drive the early part of Season 4, as Nate and Sophie try to keep the secret from the rest of the team. In the season premiere ...

Hey everyone. This is Aldis Hodge, aka Hardison, and as you know, Leverage is definitely back in action on our new night, Sundays at 9/8c on TNT. And then we give you another episode at 10/9c.

Timothy Hutton, Leverage
For Oscar-winning actor Timothy Hutton, agreeing to star in TNT's Leverage wasn't a tough decision — at least not after he read the script.
"It was a real opportunity to play a person who had these awful things happen involving his son and the destruction of his marriage — someone who needed a real breakthrough in their life," Hutton says. "I wondered how this tragedy would manifest itself in him and the choices he would make."
Look back at Hutton's most memorable roles
Hutton plays Nate Ford, the leader of a crack team of cons who use their skills to take from the rich and powerful and give back to those they've wronged. But despite Nate's noble intentions, he hasn't always made the best choices. Case in point: When Season 3 begins (Sunday at 9/8c), Nate is in jail...
Edwin and Aldis Hodge
Leverage is becoming a family affair.
Edwin Hodge, the older brother of series regular Aldis Hodge, will guest-star in the TNT drama's upcoming third season premiere, TVGuide.com has learned exclusively.
Edwin plays an accountant who is sent to prison on a minor traffic offense. While in The Big House, he is wrongly accused of another inmate's murder. Luckily, he crosses paths with newly incarcerated Nate (Timothy Hutton), who rallies the team to assist.
"I just felt it was a great opportunity to share the screen with my brother and show the difference in our talents," Edwin tells TVGuide.com. "As siblings in the entertainment business, it's always a great experience, and one I think all siblings should share."
Edwin, who starred in Boston Public and most in recently Fox's Mental, has also appeared on Bones, Heroes, and Ghost Whisperer . He'll also appear on the big screen this summer in the remake of Red Dawn.
Although the brothers don't interact directly...
Hey everybody. I hope you all enjoyed this week's episode. That was actually the second episode we shot, and I remember thinking most of the time, "Am I back to being the same old Hardison?" It's tough trying to get back the old rhythm sometimes, because we move at such a fast pace that we don't really get to see playback until ... well, until the episode airs. We get it when y'all do, but we have such a great time rocking them out that we just kind of go with the flow.
We're more than ...
