Paget Brewster knows her guest-starring gig on Law & Order: SVU might be met with a few raised eyebrows from Criminal Minds fans.
She just doesn't care.
"Yeah, people do think it's similar and that's OK. I'm 43 now. I've reached the point where I really can't care what anyone thinks," Brewster tells TVGuide.com. "Of course, I do. I'm an actress. I'm totally insecure, but I'm trying to stick to my guns about what is important to me and it doesn't matter what anyone thinks I should or shouldn't do...
Paget Brewster is leaving Criminal Minds again.
"After six wonderful years playing Emily Prentiss, I have decided it's time for me to move on," Brewster said in a statement. "As much as I will miss my Criminal Minds family, I am excited about the future and other opportunities."
Added showrunner and executive producer Erica Messer: "We were all sad to hear the news, but we respect and support any decision Paget wants to make. Personally, I'm a huge fan and will continue to be one wherever she goes."

I bet all you Meredith-haters screamed "Yes!" when Cristina said: "Everything is not about you, Meredith." I would've laughed harder had they not used it in the coming attractions and promos, but either way, that was a good line regardless of how you feel about Meredith. I personally enjoyed Meredith tonight in this commitment-themed episode especially in the closing scene when she finished Derek's sentence by suggesting he "take some space" and clear his head, as if she understood, followed by her "I'm here for you" to Cristina. How about that troublemaker sister of Derek's, though? Seems like Nancy flew in to town just to stir the pot, but I liked that she and Derek played nice at the end, even after she admitted to being one of the many women who had slept with Mark Sloan. Lame opening scene, though, with Meredith's barging in to the trailer as Derek's standing in just a towel and not immediately telling (the "slutty intern") Meredith, "She's my sister." That was Embeth Da...
As the episode's title hinted, overcoming guilt was certainly the ongoing theme tonight. The person most affected by her surrounding friends and fellow doctors was Izzie. My favorite two "Izzie influencers" were Burke and Webber. They both FTF'd her (Friends Tell Friends) first Burke told her: "You quit. You quit being a surgeon. You have two good hands and you aren't using them. Feel guilty about that." And then I thought it was quite effective when Webber, trying to make Izzie feel better about the Denny incident, told her that way back when he was an intern, he too made a fatal mistake. But he stayed and he worked and he never made that mistake again: "Every day I get to save lives." Excitingly watching Cristina do the running whip stitch on a heart was the other turning point for Izzie. If only she'd frickin' deposit that $8,700,000 check! Cute and quick George-Meredith moment by the refrigerator at the end, by the way. (If you blinked, you might've missed Meredith go to ...
Turning a blind eye to the horror that was The Grinch, Jim Carrey again will give life to a Dr. Seuss character, this time voicing the titular elephant in a CGI-animated take on Horton Hears a Who, Variety reports. The Office's Steve Carell will voice the Mayor of Whoville.... Dustin Hoffman, Kevin Kline, Christopher Lloyd ("Marty!!"), William H. Macy and Sigourney Weaver are among the voice cast of The Tale of Despereaux, an animated adaptation of the award-winning children's book about a mouse, a rat and a servant girl with cauliflower ears.... Warner Bros. is remaking Who Is Killing the Great Chefs of Europe?, this time minus the "of Europe" (xenophobia alert!) and featuring Huff's Oliver Platt as a dessert chef's ex.
Question: David's question predicting the best drama series Emmy mentioned Six Feet Under being out of the running. I thought that since Season 5 aired in the summer of 2005, it would still be eligible for this year. I hear so much about Lisa Kudrow's The Comeback getting nods, even though it aired at roughly the same time. And although it's out of sight/out of mind, SFU should be shown some Emmy love, at least with nominations for "All Alone" (the aftermath of Nate's death) or "Everyone's Waiting" (the series finale).
Answer: Yes, I suppose I should have clarified that. An oversight, or maybe I was in denial, hoping everyone would just forget about the show and let more deserving applicants make the cut (even the last season of West Wing). That wildly overpraised final episode, in which it looked like most of the Fishers would die of boredom in the future, could easily rack up some nominations for the series, if not the cast. I'm thinking The Sopranos and maybe even
Anjelica Huston, Huff
From Maerose Prizzi to Morticia Addams, Anjelica Huston has made a career of playing women you don't want to mess with. After she appears on Showtime's Huff (Sundays at 10 pm/ET), striding down a hall in form-fitting clothes, stilettos and a fierce expression on her angular face, you'll add the name Dr. Lena Markova to her power-babe pantheon.
"I don't like to think I'm scary," the 5-foot-10 actress says. "Maybe my size contributes to being cast in dominant roles. But then, I've never pictured myself as a wilting flower. So I'm drawn to strong women."
In Huston's four-episode Huff stint, which kicked off last night, she plays an unorthodox psychiatrist w
Paget Brewster, Huff
On Showtime's Huff (Sundays at 10 pm/ET), Paget Brewster plays the forlorn and fed-up wife of Hank Azaria's sad-sack psychiatrist. Could she be playing someone more different from the hottie Friends' Chandler stole from Joey? TVGuide.com spoke to the actress about her Huffing and puffing,
Question: Just a couple of quick questions. Why do you think Veronica Mars is struggling? Is it just a flaw with the gathering of statistics? I ask this because most people (of various ages and background) I know love this show and think it's the best one on television right now. Also, I was wondering what you thought of the Huff second-season premiere. I know that you're not very fond of shows that try to squeeze too many tragic/dramatic/shocking moments (Six Feet Under, Queer as Folk) into one series but I thought it was really entertaining. Do you agree?
Answer: I'm just being realistic when referring to Veronica's ratings woes — it's not pretty. I like the show a lot (though I've felt it's lost its focus from time to time this season), and I'm reasonably sure that it will end up on the new CW. But I'm not going to paint a rosier picture than the facts support just because its fan base is so passionate. As for Huff: Read my recent review. If anything, I think the show has gotte ...
