Law & Order: SVU's Tamara Tunie will make her feature-film directing debut with See You in September, an indie romcom starring Justin Kirk (Weeds), Estella Warren (my occasional dream) and David Eigenberg (Sex and the City).... Also per Variety, Disney has big-screen dibs on the Brit lit hit The Dangerous Book for Boys (shop Amazon.com).... Jane Leeves (Frasier), Caitlin Wachs (Commander in Chief) and Colton James (7th Heaven) are among the cast for Endless Bummer, a 1984-set teen comedy.
How is that for a headline? And it's actually kinda sorta true.

First up, though, is a guest spot on tonight's episode of Shark (10 pm/ET on CBS). The in-demand ingenue gave TVGuide.com a call to preview her varied ventures.

You may wonder, as I do, just what Rebecca Calloway's problem is on ABC's Commander in Chief (returning tonight at 9 pm/ET). I mean, wouldn't it be the bee's knees to be the president's daughter? Even though she left us hanging for a full day, TVGuide.com was more than happy to talk — prehiatus, mind you — with the first daughter, aka Caitlin Wachs (pronounced "wax"), about life in the White House, a pregnancy shocker to come and that older costar she's been calling "sexy."
TVGuide.com: So, you blew off the hotshot TV Guide reporter....Caitlin Wachs: Oh, no! [Laughs] Maybe I'll win you back.

If you're like me, you may wonder just what is Rebecca Calloway's problem on ABC's Commander in Chief (Tuesdays at 9 pm/ET). I mean, wouldn't it be the bee's knees to be the president's daughter? (Or did my usage of "the bee's knees" prove how out of touch I am with today's teens?) Even though she left us hanging for a full day, TVGuide.com was more than happy to talk with the first daughter, aka Caitlin Wachs (pronounced "wax"), about life in the White House, a pregnancy shocker to come, and that older costar she's going around calling "sexy."
