Former child star Barry Livingston, who played Ernie, the youngest of Fred MacMurray's boys on My Three Sons, has been cast on the October 31episode of ABC's Castle, titled "Cops and Robbers." Barry, now 57, will play Abe, an unsuspecting bank customer who his held hostage in a vault along with Castle (Natha Fillion) and his mother, Martha (Susan Sullivan), during a botched bank robbery.
Arguably the season's most anticipated new drama, Terra Nova debuted last night in a much-promo'd "epic" opener and there is just so much to say about it. Effects-filled. Expensive. And maybe a little "eh"?
Sounds like Lost vet Terry O'Quinn has been enjoying his return to island living in his recurring role as a Navy SEAL working alongside Steve McGarrett (Alex O'Loughlin) on Hawaii Five-0.
A week ago, most critics couldn't stop gushing over how adorable (or "adork-able") Zooey Deschanel is as Fox's delightful New Girl, and judging from last Tuesday's opening-night ratings, which actually improved over its Glee lead-in, the TV audience would seem to agree. They won't be disappointed in tonight's charmer of a second outing (9:01/8:01c). What struck me as I previewed the episode is that as easy as it is to fall for Zooey's pixie-ish pizzazz as Jess, it would hardly matter if it weren't for her invaluable back-up crew of supporting players.

Ladies and gentleman, we have liftoff!
Pan Am hit the air last night and to say we're high on ABC's stylish airborne soap is an understatement.

Castle star Nathan Fillion will reprise the role of Green Lantern, which he first played in Green Lantern: Emerald Knights. He'll be joined by Tim Daly and Kevin Conroy, the longtime voices for Superman and Batman, respectively. Rounding out the cast are several ...
Bradley Bell's no fool. The exec producer of The Bold and the Beautiful has Emmy winner Jacob Young — fresh from his scorching performance as badass boozer JR Chandler on All My Children — back in the role of Rick Forrester starting today. Young played the fashion-industry scion during the character's troubled teen years from 1997 to '99.
"Those were great times with Jacob and he's an even more exciting, intense and unpredictable actor now," says Bell, who nonetheless insists he's not bringing Young in to "take over and steal the show. We will slowly immerse Rick back into the Forrester ...
