Evan Lysacek has to do a futuristic cha-cha on Monday's Dancing with the Stars, but he doesn't want to look too far ahead after that. "I'm having the time of my life. I'm already starting to dread the morning I wake up and I don't have a new dance to learn and I don't have a performance that night on the ice," the Olympic champ, who's simultaneously touring with Stars on Ice, tells TVGuide.com. "It's really like a family here and it's something I never really had in skating because it's such an individual sport. I'm so glad I'm doing both." Lysacek, who got the season's first perfect score of 30 last week, is doubling up on dances too, as he must also perform a waltz. Does he feel pressure to maintain perfection?

"What I like about Demming is he's actually a good guy. There's some sincerity in this character and I think he's genuine in his feelings for Beckett.
"He checks with Castle first," Trucco continues, recalling one of his character's first scenes...
