Hey, Samantha Who, don't get too wrapped up in your upcoming date with Jerry O'Connell. ABC's No. 2 go-to guy (behind only Eddie Cibrian) has been tapped to star opposite Niecy Nash in the Fox comedy pilot The Inn.

O'Connell, whose other recent TV creds include Carpoolers and, of course, Crossing Jordan, will play the general manager of the titular New York City hotel. - MWM
