Keri Russell, Matthew Rhys
Felicity as Mata Hari? The mind reels. And yet there's Keri Russell, once America's sweetheart on The WB, bewigged and brazenly seducing classified secrets out of a Department of Justice stooge in the opening minutes of FX's engrossing spies-among-us drama The Americans (Wednesday, 10/9c).
Mariska Hargitay, Raúl Esparza
For actors, bad guys are always supposed to be the best parts. But after playing criminals on both Law & Order and Law & Order: Criminal Intent, Raul Esparza says he's having just as much fun playing someone on the right side of the law on Law & Order: SVU — if not more.
"I don't think there's anything nice about [ADA Rafael] Barba. He's kind of an a--hole, but I love him," Esparza tells TVGude.com. "And that's OK. He's fundamentally a good person and gets the job done."
Since debuting in the third episode of the season, Esparza has become the SVU squad's new ...

Peri Gilpin, Nia Vardalos
Nia Vardalos and Peri Gilpin will guest-star as bickering sisters on an upcoming episode of Grey's Anatomy, according to The Hollywood Reporter.
Vardalos, who wrote and starred in the hit comedy My Big Fat Greek Wedding, has recently appeared on Cougar Town and Drop Dead Diva. Gilpin, who played Kelsey Grammer's sidekick on Frasier, currently co-stars on the ABC Family series Make It or Break It.
If the gropes foisted upon Andy by his sister-in-law Angela look a little too natural in tonight's episode of Cougar Town, they should — guest star Nia Vardalos is costar Ian Gomez's real-life wife. We chatted with the droll couple about how the My Big Fat Greek Wedding writer-star's gig came about.
My Big Fat Greek Wedding star, Nia Vardalos, who is also the real life wife of Ian Gomez, tells us her guest stint on Cougar Town was so much fun to shoot the cast could barely keep it together. "We had an excellent time. I thought we were going to get fired every day for laughing," she told TV Guide Magazine at the Independent Spirit Awards. Vardalos will play a woman who inappropriately comes onto Ian's very married character, and after trying to schedule the guest appearance for almost two seasons she says she would love to come back for more. "I'd love it," says Vardalos. "Tell them that!"

Cougar Town may be about to disappear from TV schedules for two months, but no need to start binge drinking merlot just yet. Days after ABC renewed the comedy for a third season, the stars and executive producers welcomed reporters to its Los Angeles set to preview what's coming up next for the cul-de-sac crew. In between gazing at Big Carl revealing which star is the best at Penny Can (Ian Gomez says Josh Hopkins is the one to beat), the cast and crew discussed Jules and Grayson's next big obstacle, Bobby's love life and the cliff-hanger ahead for...
A slimmed-down Nia Vardalos says there's a big, fat and sexist double-standard in the entertainment industry.
The actress, who lost 40 pounds to combat a blood sugar problem, writes on Anderson Cooper's 360 blog that she's tired of seeing older, heavier, or less attractive men paired with younger, slender, sexy women on-screen, but rarely seeing the opposite dynamic. Vardalos — who describes her looks as "er, below-average" — says she is often pressed about her celluloid romances with "hottie" John Corbett in My Big Fat Greek Wedding and Alexis Georgoulis in My Life in Ruins, which is currently in theaters.
"It's been years, and I have sat through many a movie like Sideways, where nobody blinks an eye when Paul Giamatti gets together with ...
