President Martinez (Blair Underwood) juggled a visit from the Japanese prime minister with the decision to remove uranium rods from a nuclear facility ...

Watching Raising Hope's dim-witted Burt, you might wonder, "Where have I seen this guy before?" The answer: everywhere. "I just enjoy working so much, it's hard to say no," says Garret Dillahunt.

The collegial atmosphere continues as Chris O'Donnell passes Daniela Ruah and Eric Christian Olsen, who wrapped their roles a half hour ago yet have stuck around to yak over their Ben & Jerry's. "Don't you two have homes?" O'Donnell demands to know, breezing on by before Ruah has a chance to kickbox his behind.
Apparently the lone holdout, O'Donnell hasn't taken any...
