Mary McCormack and Cristian de la Fuente
For those who miss seeing Cristian de la Fuente waltzing around Dancing with the Stars, fret not! De la Fuente returns as Mary McCormick's on-again-off-again boyfriend, Rafael, in the second season of USA's In Plain Sight (which premieres Sunday, April 19, 10 pm/ET). TVGuide.com spoke to De la Fuente about why Raf stays with Mary, when he might actually pop the question again and who he thinks should go home with the mirrorball trophy on Dancing with the Stars.
TVGuide.com: Why do you think Rafael sticks around when Mary clearly has so many issues?
Cristian de la Fuente: Well, maybe it's because of that. We all have this idea that we can help our loved ones solve their issues...
David James Elliott
JAG's David James Elliott has traded his buzzcut and pressed uniform for a flowing mane and a leather breastplate to star in Sci Fi's two-part movie event Knights of Bloodsteel (Sunday, April 19 and Monday, April 20, 9 pm/ET, Sci Fi). Elliott stars as freedom fighter John Serragoth in this tale about the continent of Mirabilis, where humans, goblins, elves and dwarves seek bloodsteel, an ore that imparts magical abilities to anyone who can draw it from the Earth. TVGuide.com spoke with Elliott about making the leap into the fantasy genre, training for sword-fighting scenes and talking up the idea of a JAG reunion.
TVGuide.com: Knights of Bloodsteel could not be more different from JAG. What drew you to the project?
David James Elliott: I'm a fan of the genre and I'm always looking for something my 6-year-old can watch. I thought it was right up his alley. He's always asking me to be in a movie, because he's a big movie watcher.

Sorry for the delay, things have been quite busy. All's well — spent a very nice Easter weekend with my mother. thanks again for all the well wishes for her.
Well, the questions are starting to pile up so, I'm not going to waste time. Let me try to answer a few.
To Casimone: I'm glad you enjoy reading and responding to this blog. I plan to keep making entries even after we break for hiatus. Like I mentioned before, I really enjoy communicating with you all. I'll be travelling a bit this spring, so if there are a few lapses in the entries ... I hope you understand.
PeachehKate: Yes, it's a great sense of accomplishment to finish my first full season on NCIS. The cast and crew are ...

Could you give me any scoop you have on Grey's Anatomy, ideally something about Mark and Lexie? I need my fix! — Frances
MATT: Does McSteamy "do" parents? That's the big question in the April 30 episode, when a now-sober Thatcher Grey invites his daughter and her new beau out to dinner. Now, just supposing that Mark is down for some dining, can the reformed cad put on a good show? And this just in: A source tells me that on Mer and Der's wedding day, airing May 7, the groom gifts his bride with (incurable romantic alert!) her first solo surgery. How that fits into a little blue Tiffany box, I do not know.
The past two seasons of CSI have ended with a cliff-hanger. Season 7 ended with Sara left in the Vegas desert by the Miniature Killer, and Season 8 ended with Warrick being accused of murder (and eventually murdered himself). Will Season 9 follow that same pattern? — Jocelyn
She Bangs! O'Keefe cozies up to Koothrappali.
What happens in Vegas ... apparently will be played for maximum comic effect when the boys of The Big Bang Theory cross paths with Prison Break alumna Jodi Lyn O'Keefe.
In the CBS hitcom's April 27 episode, Leonard and Koothrappali escort a heartbroken Wolowitz to Las Vegas. There, O'Keefe boots the geeks' hard drives as Mikayla, a "working girl" — and not in the Melanie Griffith vein.
Kiefer Sutherland, 24
He who takes a big bite out of global crime soon will take a bite out of the Big Apple; A Fox spokesperson confirms that 24's eighth season will be set in New York City.
Now, before you go buy bus tickets and only add to the glut of tourists who make evening walks through Times Square rather frustrating, know this...
Blindness hasn't been the only challenge for American Idol's Scott MacIntyre. In a visit to the TVGuide.com studio, he said he also suffered from kidney failure for two years and received a life-saving transplant in 2007 — information he did not share with producers on the show.
"It's something I didn't want to bring up during the competition process because I wanted to be judged on my voice and my artistry," he says.
The piano man also talked about stepping out of his comfort zone on his last outing by playing guitar. "[I] had to bring out the shredder for the final performance — you know, going down in a blaze of glory," he says.
