USA has tapped Gabriel Macht to star in its drama pilot A Legal Mind, a network rep says.
The Spirit star, 38, will play Harvey, a smart, successful lawyer at a big Manhattan firm who takes a chance and hires Mike, a brilliant man lacking motivation and a college degree. Newcomer...

In cable TV, summer is the new fall. For the broadcast networks, it's "Let's throw it against the wall and see if it sticks" time. So what's working as we wait for the curtain to rise on the fall schedules?
Canada American networks can get Canadian-made series for as little as 25 percent of what they pay for Hollywood shows. Of course, it only makes economic sense if you can get somebody to watch them (which wasn't the case with CBS' quickly axed The Bridge). Now that ABC's Rookie Blue is averaging 7 million viewers, you can bet there will be a lot more imports next summer.

Nina Dobrev and Paul Wesley
During Comic-Con weekend in San Diego, I was treated to an exclusive sit-down interview with Vampire Diaries executive producers Kevin Williamson and Julie Plec to discuss some of the Season 2 secrets they're plotting.
James Badge Dale
Cheers to James Badge Dale for pulling a double shift on a pair of top-rank cable dramas.
Having recently wrapped his run as PFC Robert Leckie in HBO's stirring World War II miniseries The Pacific, Badge Dale has reported for duty as intelligence analyst Will Travers on AMC's intriguing new headscratcher Rubicon. As a widower still grieving over the loss of his wife and child in 9/11, he brings warmth to a series that could be a chilly homage to paranoid '70s thrillers like The Conversation and The Parallax View.

You know you're getting some good dirt on a show when it even catches some of its stars by surprise. That's what happened at Sunday's Glee session at Comic-Con, where creator Ryan Murphy hit Chris Colfer with the news that he may soon get to do "The Time Warp," the classic song-and-dance routine from The Rocky Horror Picture Show. A few other surprises? The Britney Spears episode may be a little dream-like, even if it isn't exactly a dream for one star. And get ready for more Madonna.
Here's what you'll be gleeking out to this fall:
Monet Mazur, Nathan Fillion
In the second episode of Castle's upcoming third season, an extended member of the Castle family will die.
"As in real life, death is sad, but it makes us all appreciate what we have around us a little bit more," series star Nathan Fillion told me after Castle's Comic-Con panel. Added series creator Andrew Marlowe: "This will bring the family closer together."
So who's the unlucky ...
Steve Burton and Vanessa Marcil
You could say she's arguably the soap world's most popular female star — but there's really no argument about it. Nobody stirs up a fan fuss quite like Vanessa Marcil Giovinazzo, who returns to General Hospital Aug. 11 as drama queen Brenda Barrett. The actress, who recently wed CSI: NY regular Carmine Giovinazzo, hasn't been seen on GH since 2003 ...
