Question: I just wanted to thank you for talking up Pushing Daisies as much as you did. I loved, loved, loved the "pie-lette." If upcoming episodes are as delightful as that one, Pushing Daisies will be my favorite new show, hands down. Got any scoop?

Answer: Due to some last-minute reshuffling, Broadway VIP Raul Esparza will now be playing traveling homeopathic-antidepressant representative/salesman Alfredo Aldarisio, the role originally earmarked for Paul Reubens. Pee-wee's not going anywhere, though. He's playing a new (and equally quirky) character named Oscar Vibenius, a former smeller/olfactory expert who works for the DWP and smells something a little different about Chuck.
