Castle Exclusive: Inside TV's Hottest Romance

Castle

It's precisely the kind of chilling twist Richard Castle might concoct. On a Hollywood soundstage in early February, the mystery novel-penning protagonist of ABC's Castle, played by Nathan Fillion, is shadowing his muse, no-nonsense NYPD detective Kate Beckett (Stana Katic), as she tracks a person of interest to a storage freezer in Manhattan. Too bad the guy, who's already taken a bullet to the brain, won't be coughing up any clues.

Watercooler: Home Ain't Where The Bachelor's Heart Is

Brad Womack

Last night, our buff Bachelor had his hometown dates with the final four ladies looking to land themselves a slab of Brad and, sorry folks, he had, like, no chemistry on display. With any of them!

Maybe it's that Brad was completely freaked out about having to meet four different families (even though he has had televised practice with this parental gauntlet routine). Maybe having to wear a shirt makes him socially awkward. Maybe it's that five weeks of competitive dating does not a couple make.

Christina Hendricks Takes Flight in All-Star Superman

Christina Hendricks, Lois Lane

It's a bird! It's a plane! It's... Joan Holloway? Best known as the hottest secretary known to man (and Mad Men), Christina Hendricks is busting out some new skills as the voice of a very different kind of Lois Lane in the gorgeous DVD movie All-Star Superman (in stores today). Hendricks, who stars in the movie with Desperate Housewives' James Denton as Clark Kent and Anthony LaPaglia as Lex Luthor, is as excited to be playing the iconic role as we are to talk to her about it. Because honestly, she's pretty damn super, too.

Breaking: Kiefer Sutherland Returns to TV!

Kiefer Sutherland

It's official: Just one year after 24 ended, Kiefer Sutherland is plotting his return to TV.

Sutherland has signed on to star in the Fox drama pilot Touch, in which he will play a man who discovers that his autistic son can predict the future.

Keck's Exclusives: James Taylor Lights up Mr. Sunshine

Mr. Sunshine

"It was the most surreal experience of my life," Allison Janney says of dueting with five-time Grammy winner James Taylor for Mr. Sunshine's March 16 episode. The singer guest stars on the ABC comedy as Billy, the ex-husband of Janney's Crystal. Turns out the exes had a lounge act and reunite to sing Leon Russell's "A Song For You," which Janney says "is probably one of the hardest songs to sing for someone who hadn't sung since stepping off the 9 to 5 stage over a year earlier."
