Question: Yo, Michael! What's up? I'll create a Smurf for you inspired by Lauren Graham if you tell me if Shane West will be returning to ER this season.

Answer: You Shane West fans are relentless. Just to get you guys off my back, I rang up West's manager, who confirmed what I told you last week: At the moment, there are no concrete plans for him to return to ER. If and when he does go back, it probably won't happen until later in the season since West is shooting back-to-back movies right now.
