Emily Deschanel, David Boreanaz
David Boreanaz and Emily Deschanel have spent a week at Walt Disney's historic Golden Oak Ranch in Santa Clarita, Calif. But this is not a relaxing getaway for the Bones stars. They are here shooting scenes in which their characters, Special Agent Seeley Booth and Dr. Temperance Brennan, go undercover as their trashy alter egos Tony and Roxy to investigate a murder at a couples' retreat. During a break in filming, Boreanaz, sporting a tank top, red velour sweats and a thick gold chain, sits next to his leading lady, who is dressed down in tight blue slacks and oversize shades, to talk about the drama's ninth season. It's the year the crime-solving duo say "I do" in a guest-star-filled wedding (Ryan O'Neal and...

Will Dana Delany soon be headed to Vietnam? It could happen. At a Paley Center for Media panel I recently moderated celebrating the 25th anniversary of ABC's 1988-91 drama China Beach and its October release on...
Once Upon a Time
Once Upon a Time goes under the sea on its Nov. 3 episode with the introduction of Ariel (aka the Little Mermaid), her strapping beau Prince Eric and Ursula the wicked sea witch.

Modern Family executive producer Chris Lloyd clued me in over a month ago that the ABC sitcom was mulling an offer to shoot the series on location, possibly outside the United States.
Now, Australian blogs are reporting that the Australian Tourism Board, which famously lured Oprah Winfrey and her audience down under for a special week of episodes, is offering to pick up the tab to fly the whole Modern Family production team over for a special episode. While ABC has yet to confirm, speculation is that the family may fly to Sydney for either a Christmas celebration or for Cam and Mitch's honeymoon.
Despite what you may have heard about Patti LuPone, the Broadway star won't be playing a witch on American Horror Story: Coven, which premieres Oct. 9 on FX. "Patti will be playing someone who will go up against [Jessica Lange's supreme witch] Fiona and her daughter Cordelia [Sarah Paulson]," says executive producer Tim Minear. LuPone's Joan Ramsey becomes a thorn in the women's sides when she and her sexy son move next door to Fiona's boarding school for young witches. "Patti's character is a bit of a holy roller who has recently lost her husband under suspicious circumstances," Minear says.
A.J Cook and Esai Morales
Criminal Minds' ninth season, premiering Sept. 25, "is shaping up to be the season of J.J.," reports A.J. Cook of her character, who was written out of the CBS procedural during Season 6. (Fan backlash led to Cook's rehiring for Season 7.) "We're going to use the serendipitous gift of Season 6 to explain with flashbacks what happened when she was working for the Pentagon and why she came back as a much tougher character. I've never had a chance to flex my acting muscles like this on the show!"
Downton Abbey's fourth season, premiering on PBS in January, will say goodbye to Lady Cora's personal maid, O'Brien (Siobhan Finneran, who will appear in one episode to wrap up her story). O'Brien's exit will reverberate through the staff, affecting, among others, head housekeeper Mrs. Hughes (Phyllis Logan) and recently promoted cook's assistant Daisy (Sophie McShera).
Emily Deschanel, David Boreanaz
Fox's Bones is filling the chapel with familiar faces for the October wedding of Dr. Temperance Brennan (Emily Deschanel) and Special Agent Seeley Booth (David Boreanaz). "Everybody's in it...
Patrick Duffy, Priscilla Presley
Over the summer, Priscilla Presley got her Facebook friends excited by posting, "For all of those who mentioned that you would like to see me on Dallas, thank you very much for that support! We will see what happens..."
But are the writers of TNT's reboot really considering bringing back Jenna Wade, whom Presley played from 1983 to '88?
