"Of course," Nevins told reporters at the Television Critics Association fall previews Tuesday. "We announced a deal with Scott Buck today. Draw your own conclusions."
Pressed for details after the panel, Nevins clarified that nothing is actively in the works and that no deals with cast members have been extended. (The Hollywood Reporter previously reported rumblings of a spin-off centered on Jennifer Carpenter's Debra.) "We have a deal with Scott and we're going to develop a bunch of different things with him," he said. "All options will be explored. We're really not dealing with it at all until we're through this season and maybe for a while thereafter. It's all about the satisfying ending to the show."

There oughta be a law! Canadian actress Jessica Paré is the latest presumptuous Canuck starlet to move south of the border and start mackin' on our American hunks. In MGM's Wicker Park (opening today), she gets to play Josh Hartnett's pretty girlfriend. "It's a small part, not very central," she tells TV Guide Online apologetically. "My character thinks he's going away to China for four days, but it turns out, he's actually chasing this other woman. She's clueless."
Hmmph. Well, she still had a plum gig as Josh Hotnett's main squeeze, if only briefly. "I loved him in The Virgin Suicides and I've enjoyed his work, but he wasn't up there with my favorite actors," the 21-year-old admits.
