For a while it seemed as though Glee would suffer a mass cast exodus as graduating seniors Rachel, Finn and Kurt headed off to pursue theater-arts studies in the Big Apple. But now Fox has announced that the series will juggle both NYC and Ohio-set story lines, with Sarah Jessica Parker and Kate Hudson signing on as New York-based mentors. (I'm hearing the New York sets will be built in Hollywood so the cast will continue working together.) With nearly everyone expected back and no summer concert tour planned during their hiatus, for the first time in years the Glee cast has a couple of free months before heading back to work.

Joaquin Phoenix revealed that he is, in fact, an actor and not the subject of a documentary. And the cranky doc on House let it slip that he's actually a big old softie. Welcome to Top Moments: Mistaken Identity Edition.
Sue Sylvester's got a new nemesis at McKinley High.
With Coach Tanaka broken-hearted and gone, Principal Figgins (Iqbal Theba) has recruited Shannon Beiste — pronounced "beast" — to whip its losing football team into shape.

The Emmys red carpet isn't just about fashion: TV's hottest stars arrive with lots of scoop to unload. Stars including Jane Lynch, Tina Fey, Mariska Hargitay and Jim Parsons unburdened themselves to TVGuide.com about such subjects as Sue's new nemesis on Glee, a Modern Family addition, and Betty White's plans on Community.
1. Glee's Sue, Part 2: Jane Lynch's Sue Sylvester may be evil, but new coach Shannon Beiste (Dot Jones) is even more sinister. "In the beginning, Sue is a little threatened by the new football coach, who is a 6'4" woman," says Lynch. "She and Schuester [Matthew Morrison] band together to...
