Question: Why is Goran Visnjic leaving ER?

Answer: To make motion pictures, of course! And rumor has it he's got a big one lined up. Bond producers are reportedly eyeing him to play the big baddie in the next 007 flick. And if you're wondering how Kovac will be written off ER, your first clue will come in Episode 20 when he *e*i*ns as *h**f.

Is it 100 percent confirmed ...

Question: Is it 100 percent confirmed that Goran Visnjic won't come back (as a regular) for the 14th season of ER (Ask Ausiello 2/28)? What about Maura Tierney? Anything new on her coming back?

Answer: I'd say it's 99 percent certain he won't be back as a series regular. And Maura is contracted through next season, so she's definitely sticking around.

February 8, 2007: Dying Is Easy....

So lets start with the important stuff first I am thrilled to report that all the bad facial hair in the ER has left the building at least for the time being The porn 145stache is gone and the Stamos stubble is now a mere five oclock shadow of its former self The disturbance in the force has been resolved and now we can get back to focusing on important medical matters like how ridiculously tall dark and yummy Goran Visnjic is Oh and you can be sure there will be more on that in a minute I just need to regroup after all the crying I just did ER has an amazing track record with memorable guest appearances and that streak continued tonight As a huge fan of Six Feet Under and his work on that show it was great to see Freddy Rodriguez as Simon the leukemia-stricken comedian His interaction with Abby Sam and Morris was very entertaining and bittersweet and I was glad to see that he finally got a chance to do his act albeit from a hospital bed Sam f read more

Do you know anything about ...

Question: Do you know anything about the recent speculation that ER will leave on a cliff-hanger while NBC promotes a new show in its place, only to return a couple of months later to finish the season? The show has done great so far this season, and I think there are a number of different routes the writers could take with Kovac and Forest Whitaker's character. On another note, I've also heard that next year might be its final season. Does NBC just feel it's time to put this one to bed? I honestly think that ER has held its own against great shows like Grey's Anatomy, and I don't see what NBC could put in its place! Answer: A clarification: the initial plan was for ER to pull a Lost vanishing act midway through the season, making room for a mid-season tryout. That plan was jettisoned when ER came on strong this season, in part thanks to John Stamos' arrival (and, perhaps, the Forest Whitaker-vs-Luka subplot). I imagine ER will run straight through the season, with minimal repeats, and ... read more

December 7, 2006: City of Mercy

Were getting ready for winter break folks but this episode was the perfect finale to what has been a fantastic fall for our beloved ER I have always enjoyed the holiday-themed episodes and tonight was no exception While this one probably wouldnt rank up there with some of the classic Christmases in the ER in my book remember the one where Jeannie Boulet put her star on top of the ER Christmas tree it did have the distinction of featuring Goran Visnjic dressed as a reindeer Just when I thought Luka couldnt get any more adorable I am proven wrong Despite a healthy dose of romances old and new it wasnt all mistletoe and merriment Luka and Abby learned that Ames filed a restraining order after their confrontation The conversation that Luka and Abby had in the apartment was very telling When Abby talked about being afraid of losing what they have she encapsulated in just a few words the concerns of all the viewers who care so much about the happ read more

November 30, 2006: Tell Me No Secrets

Though I enjoyed Abbys transport-team heroics last week it was good to get back to the usual excitement of the ER with an episode directed by Laura Innes I was glad to see that she took the opportunity of the directors chair to give her alter ego Kerry Weaver a little romantic action However not everyone was feeling the love tonight Lukas problems with Curtis Ames continued when Luka thought he spotted him outside of his apartment building Though I can imagine most men in that situation would react with similar zeal in protecting their family it does seem that the tragic circumstances of Lukas history would explain his heightened reaction to a perceived threat When he went to see Ames at his work site his threat to kill him if Ames comes near his family was certainly believable No one does passionate resolute anger quite like Goran Visnjic However considering Abbys reaction at the end of the episode when Luka came clean with her it does read more

November 23, 2006: Scoop and Run

I have to say theres nothing like a big sweeps event to help digest all the turkey mashed potatoes stuffing and to-die-for corn cakes in my house all courtesy of my husbands amazing culinary skills Hope you ER fans enjoyed a yummy Thanksgiving feast of your own before settling in for a brand new episodeTonight in keeping with the spirit of the season I would like to focus on the theme of thankfulness First I am so thankful that Maura Tierney continues to get a chance to shine Tonight she was right back in the spotlight as Abbys plans for an idyllic holiday with her new family were derailed As if getting dragged away for a pointless transport wasnt bad enough she had to deal with being dropped into a ravine to assist at the sight of a horrific bus accident The scenes with young Milo and his mother were heart-breaking but I had a feeling that Abby would go back for her with an assist from her surly transport partner Together they saved the da read more

September 28, 2006: Graduation Day

As if Abby and Luka didnt have enough to contend with tonight manic-depressive Maggie breezed in to meet her ailing grandson and offer her support in a flurry of note taking and NICU staff badgering However she also brought an unexpected mix of motherly wisdom and perspective that Abby sorely needed Sally Field has done an excellent job with this role in each of her appearances taking a strident character and making her sympathetic and relatable never sugarcoating the challenges of living with mental illness Despite her doubts Maggie actually persuaded Abby to include the baby in a trial that was both risky and promising The scene where she insisted something was wrong with the baby reminded me of the scene from Terms of Endearment when Shirley MacLaine loses it on the nurses for not administering her daughters pain medication on time While I thought it was downright mean to lead all of us to believe the baby had died the last scene of Abby with her mom offe read more

September 21, 2006: Bloodline

Hey ER fans better late than never right Thanks for your patience while we got the blog up and running Thankfully the 13th season of our venerable Thursday-night must-see kicked off right where the finale left off with Jerry Luka Abby and Sam all in various states of peril When we last saw Sam she was being tossed into a van by Steve and his fellow prison escapee Rafe For you Six Feet Under fans Rafe was played by Michael Weston the guy who brutalized David in a similarly creepy role a few years back And Mary the ER trainee turned gun-toting accomplice was played by Natasha Gregson Wagner daughter of the late Natalie Wood Their escape resulted in Jerry being shot and Luka being paralyzed and intubated helpless to assist a bleeding unconscious Abby As a devoted fan the sloppiness of some of the writing and character development in recent seasons has been frustrating This show is at its absolute best and always has been when we are watching the day-to-day read more
