Who's doing what for whom this pilot season (per Variety and the Reporter):• Emmy winner Christina Applegate, long wooed to return to network TV, has opted to star as an amnesiac woman in the ABC comedy Sam I Am.

BRITNEY, A CHARITY CASE?

Britney Spears, apparently already anxious to get away from li'l Sean Preston's wailing, is in talks to succeed Christina Applegate as the star of Broadway's Sweet Charity, the New York Post reports. The pop tart's hubby, Kevin Federline, is said to be against the idea — that is, until he sees the price for the new Xbox 360 deluxe bundle and glances at his empty nylon-and-Velcro wallet. Then he'll decide he's alllll for it. read more
