Question: Admit it: You have a man-crush on Josh Holloway.
Answer: Not so much, actually. Matthew Fox? Sure. Donald Faison? Definitely. Wentworth Miller? Um, duh. But Josh? I don't see it.
Question: Couldn't agree more with your comment about Scrubs' Donald Faison doing some of the best comedic work on TV. His rendition of "Poison" was perfection. That episode will never leave my TiVo.
Answer: Yeah, I've got that one saved on my FauxVo, right next to the final four Arrested Developments (talk about perfection) and the last six episodes of Battlestar Galactica, which I haven't seen yet. (I'm planning a marathon this weekend.)
Take heart, Love Monkey fans. There's a silver lining to the show's untimely demise — it freed Tom Cavanagh up to return to Scrubs! Sources say Mr. C. returned to the set this week to reprise his role as Zach Braff's older bro. In the episode, slated to air in April, Dan comes to town to avoid a job interview his mother has set up for him.
Speaking of Scrubs, is it just me, or is the show on freakin' fire this season? And let's give a big round of applause to Donald Faison, who, IMHO, is doing the best comedic work on the tube right now. Just when I thought he couldn't top that brilliant kung-fu sequence, he goes and fronts Sacred Heart's first all-boy air band. Genius I tell you, genius!
Scrubs Hold on a sec — let me make sure I fully understand what's going on here. Not only do we get an entire episode celebrating the honor and glory of the great American air band, but we also get air versions of Loverboy, Boston, Fountains of Wayne and Bel Biv DeVoe? Somebody pinch me. And for those of you who adored Turk's "Kung Fu Fighting" sequence last month, I submit for your approval the sheer magic that is his performance of BBD's "Poison." (Why do I have the sneaking suspicion that Donald Faison has had that choreography in his back pocket since junior high? Three words: aged to perfection.) Now that I've gotten that out of my system, I suppose I'm ready to move on to our relevant bit of sweeps-related stunt casting. Get it? Beca
Alfre Woodard in Something New
In the romantic comedy Something New, in theaters today, Sanaa Lathan plays an upwardly mobile African American who, despite cries of foul from friends and family, finds herself falling in love with Simon Baker's hunky landscaper. Helping the conflicted miss sort through her feelings is Desperate Housewives' Alfre Woodard, playing mom to Lathan — as she did in Love & Basketball. TVGuide.com spoke with Woodard about Something New's important message, the certain something she brings to the table, and, of course, life on Wisteria Lane.

Donald Faison, Scrubs
Tonight at 9 pm/ET, NBC's Scrubs presents its 100th episode, featuring — no, not the death of someone close to Clark Kent — a humorous homage to The Wizard of Oz. This week's second helping guest-stars Jason Bateman and a whole lotta angry ostriches. Is this show officially off the hook? TVGuide.com spoke with Donald Faison, aka Turk, about crafting Scrubs' weekly remedy for the prime-time blahs.
TVGuide.com: Donald Faison, pardon my French, but you are on one damn funny show.Donald Faison: Thanks, but where did you speak French in that?
TVGuide.com: Um, when I said "Faison"? So do you get that a lot, people telling you that Scrubs
Scrubs doc Donald Faison has been tapped to host Spike TV's The Playbook, a half-hour series that is being billed as the "ultimate guide for guys." Via a series of comedic vignettes, the show — debuting Dec. 3 — will address such guy-centric topics as sex, gambling and car-buying. And if there's time, the impact of today's empowered woman on the global workplace. — Additional reporting by Ben Katner and Matt Webb Mitovich
Question: I agree with you that Keri Russell is a total goddess. Anything in store for other cast members from the show? I know Keri has MI3, Scott Speedman is doing Underworld 2 and Donald Faison is on Scrubs, but what about the others?
Answer: Let's see… Amy Jo Johnson has a recurring role in ABC's midseason dramedy What About Brian?, which counts J.J. Abrams among its exec producers. And Amanda Foreman is the only reason to watch the Sept. 23 premiere of NBC's still-born fertility-clinic drama Inconceivable. She plays a brash surrogate mother to two gay dads and she's in full-tilt Meghan mode. God, I miss that show.
Forget Trista and Ryan's wedding. Turk and Carla's nuptials tonight on Scrubs (9:30 pm/ET) promise to be the TV wedding of the decade. But don't tune in expecting the carefully orchestrated and executed circus, er, ceremony that ABC and Bachelorette producers whipped up. This is a Scrubs wedding, which can mean only one thing: Everything that can go wrong does go wrong. But when asked what to expect in the third-season ender, Judy Reyes, who plays Carla, would only say, "It's going to be quite a ride... because of the nature of the show and the people who are getting married."
Here's what else we know: Turk (Donald Faison) takes an extra shift at the hospital on the day of the ceremony, vowing to his anxious fiancée that he'll get to the church on time. Needless to say, complications arise and pandemonium ensues as the dashing doc races against the clock to meet his bride-to-be at the altar.
At least Carla w
