Question: After looking at the pictures of your stint on Veronica Mars, I have to say, you are a cutie and your photo on this column doesn't do you justice. You should get them to change it.

Answer: OK, it's been changed (see above). But don't think I'm going to jump every time you snap your fingers, Barb. And since you brought up my Veronica Mars stint, I just watched an early screener of the March 22 episode, and Rob Thomas is indeed a man of his word: My three-second bit definitely made the cut. In fact, describing it as a "bit" is an understatement; this is more like a moment. It's definitely more substantial than my role on Gilmore Girls as Dragonfly Inn Guest No. 1. Short story short: That Guest Emmy is mine to lose.
