Cheers to John Schneider for getting back in touch with his rural roots on Leverage.
The impressively well-preserved actor (who was actually born in Mt. Kisco, New York) has been passing himself off as a country boy ever since he guzzled beer and claimed he was from Snellville, Georgia while auditioning for his breakthrough role as Bo Duke on The Dukes of Hazzard.
This week's episode of Leverage is nothing but a fun ride, guest-starring "Mr. Dukes of Hazzard" himself, John Schneider. He comes in to play a mean, greasy record company CEO stealing people's dreams, when in real life he couldn't be farther from that. He was such a great guy to have on the set and off, as he ran around the city of Portland with the lot of us. He came with such professionalism and spirit....

Molly Ringwald by John Shearer/ WireImage.com
ABC Family on Wednesday announced casting for its new, as-yet-untitled series from 7th Heaven creator Brenda Hampton (which, in case you're curious, is currently referred to as the "Untitled Brenda Hampton Project"). Not only has the show signed on Smallville's John Schneider (Jonathan Kent) and Oz's Ernie Hudson (Leo Glynn), but also the former Sixteen-year-old America loved, Molly Ringwald. The series, to air this summer, will be a one-hour drama that as Ausiello previously reported centers on a family and their friends after 15-year-old Amy Nicholson becomes unexpectedly pregnancy (no, Diablo Cody is not signed on). The show's recurring cast members will also include newcomer Shailene Woodley (previously seen on The O.C.), Camille Winbush (The Bernie Mac Show) and Allen Evangelista (Zoey 101). How exciting will it be to see these new cast additions together? We'll have to wait for the drama to unfold. Anna Dimond
As Ive been quite verbal about in the past I was a huge Knots Landing fan So after reading about this episode and then seeing the coming attractions last week I was needless to say excited I mean how could I not be Donna Mills was portraying a rich Beverly Hills socialite named Lulu Grandiron and she and her friends married wealthy high-powered execs divorced them and then took all their money And adding to a true Knots fans delight one of those friends Annette was played by Joan Van Ark All they needed was Michele Lee and it wouldve been more of a complete set But Im thinking that Michele was asked but declined since the four rich women were all plastic surgery fanatics and maybe Michele didnt want to admit shes had work done Those two other roles were filled by women who co-starred on other prime-time soaps in the 80s Shari Belafonte shes dropped the Harper from Hotel played Catherine in the really bad wig and Deborah Shelton from Dallas was Marla wi
Just like last week, I want to start with the ending. How many of you were reminded of the final episode of The Sopranos with that quick fade to black? I kept thinking something shocking or tragic was going to happen since I knew it was the final minute of the show. "Silent Night" was heard in the background simultaneously with a dramatic beat, while slow camera shots of each character were shown. Once Eden walked in with her fake smile and Sean looked down, avoiding her, the one thing I expected to happen was for Julia to collapse and that would be the cliffhanger since we won't get a new episode until January 15th. What was that liquid that Eden added to the fruitcake she made and then fed to Julia? It seemed like Julia was getting queasy or dizzy periodically throughout the second half hour, but she never passed out. And nothing shocking happened at the end. At least with this fade to black, I didn't think my cable suddenly went out like I did with The Sopranos (that was more of ...
Where do I start So much happened in this episode that my head is spinning I guess Ill start with the ending Matt catching himself on fire and jumping off the balcony into the swimming pool Call me a drug novice but I am guessing Matt was freebasing cocaine or crack or cooking meth and since he was so out of it he accidentally set himself on fire Can we assume since he was carefully trying to read the how to instructions that when Matt and Kimber would do their drugs it was Kimber who was the expert Ouch Thats gonna leave a mark Nothing Sean and Christian cant surgically fix we can assume But I did feel bad for the newly-crowned Burger King employee Matt Kimber really laid the honesty on him when she packed up her things and left him I cant move forward carrying your dead weight and then I never loved you Matt I told you I did but I lied And Im really sorry I hope some day we can be friends You knew Matt was going to go ballistic after Kimber told h
