Star Trek Sequel Beams Up Lost Cocreator Lindelof

Star Trek

J.J. Abrams' Star Trek reboot won't be seen until May 8, but Paramount is already rounding up Abrams' sci-fi friends for the sequel.

Abrams' Lost cocreator Damon Lindelof will join Fringe producers Roberto Orci and Alex Kurtzman — who penned the upcoming release — to write the screenplay for the follow-up, according to Variety. Abrams will return to produce the next installment, but no decision has been made about whether he'll also direct.

Lindelof said he hopes fans don't think he and his colleagues are getting ahead of themselves. "There's obviously a lot of hubris involved in signing on to write a sequel of a movie that hasn't even come out yet," he said. "But we're so excited about the first one that we wanted to proceed."

Kurtzman is eager to get fan reaction before deciding which way to go, but the trio hopes to deliver a script by Christmas for what could be a summer 2011 release.

Faith Ford Plays it Straight on Hope & Faith

Faith Ford

Since her breakout role on Murphy Brown, Faith Ford has become a go-to for straight-woman roles, in no small part because of her turn opposite Kelly Ripa on ABC's Hope & Faith.

She looked back on the premiere's massive food fight between her and Ripa, plus the show's madcap costume changes and a slew of special guests, including Regis Philbin as Handsome Hal.
