Next week, James "You're Beautiful" Blunt will tape a Las Vegas guest appearance during which he'll sing his single, "Same Mistake," at a funeral. The episode will air early in the new year but probably still too late to shoot the ditty up the charts.... The Black Donnellys' Michael Rispoli and Prison Break alum Romy Rosemont have been cast in The Oaks, Fox's semi-spooky, semi-comedy pilot about three families occupying the same house in different eras. Alas, Rosemont's hiring means the luminous Gina McKee (Hugh Grant's wheelchair-using buddy in Notting Hill) has been canned. - Ben Katner
