Because of Frank's mistake in processing evidence — and Jo's refusal to hide the mistake — serial rapist John Curtis (Jason Wiles) was released. When Curtis strikes again in New York...
Dana Delany doesn't have to prove to anyone that she's a TV star of the highest caliber. Her body of work, starting with the indelible Vietnam War classic China Beach, speaks for itself.
But not since China's Colleen McMurphy has Delany had a role so well suited for her foxy, sardonic magnetism as Dr. Megan Hunt, neurosurgeon-turned-medical examiner/crime solver in the new Body of Proof.

Then, in the wake of specific events of the May 19 season-ender, he said, "It's up to the audience to decide, and they will over the summer, what might happen [next]. But everything has a life, and eventually things end." Listen very carefully to Brennan's coda here: "Now, if you think I just said that Tiva's going to end, I didn't."
I've heard that Heroes' Volume 4 ends with a major death. Any tease? — Eric
TIM: You're half-right. Of course, not everyone who dies stays dead. Except those who do. Also, look for one character to ...
John Billingsley, formerly of The Nine as well as Fox's own Prison Break, has been added to the Season 7 cast of 24 in the recurring role of "Latham."
