A couple weeks back, I revealed that NBC's Chuck would be bringing back Armand Assante in the fourth episode of its new season. Now Armand's character, Premier Alejandro Goya, has been given an exotic wife in the shapely form of...

Cannavale will play Charles Rosselini, the boss of Bridget Moynahan's Assistant District Attorney Erin Reagan. Rosselini is the talented and popular Manhattan DA.

Coby Bell has slipped with the greatest of ease into the role of Jesse Porter on Burn Notice (Thursdays, 9/8c, USA), a counterintelligence expert who's joined the do-gooder trio of Michael, Fi and Sam after being inadvertently burned by Michael. Chatting with the hunky Third Watch vet, we get the sneaking suspicion the superspy role comes kind of naturally...
As one of the seven strangers trapped in a teched-out ghost town, Jason Wiles is as clueless as we are about his Persons Unknown (Monday, 8/7c, NBC) character, Joe Tucker. "He's an enigma...we're starting to learn a little about him, but this guy is a mess...

Check out photos of the Southland sast
The gritty cop drama, which TNT resurrected after NBC canceled the show before its Season 2 premiere, averaged 2.7 million viewers during its second season on the cable channel. The numbers were below the network's average, which left the show's fate in question.
"Southland is a challenging, visceral show that engages viewers with its immersive style, provocative storylines and complex characters," Michael Wright, executive vice president of programming for TNT, TBS and Turner Classic Movies, said Monday in announcing the renewal. "These qualities have made Southland a favorite among critics and appointment viewing for an extremely loyal audience."

With both 90210 and Gossip Girl premiering this week, our mailbox was buzzing! So, senior editors Matt Mitovich and Mickey O'Connor sat down to answer more of your questions in a special "bonus" edition of their weekly column.Now that the Lost cast is back on set, do you have any news about the first episodes of Season 5? FranMatt: This bit of intel brought a smile to my otherwise stoic, stone-like face: Remember how Sayid plucked Hurley out of the loony bin in the season finale? Well, in the vein of Glover-Gibson and Nolte-Murphy, look for these two to "buddy up" as they do their part to unravel some off-island mysteries. Do you have any spoilers that concern CSI's Greg Sanders (played by Eric Szmanda)? Seems like he is always overlooked. DeeMatt: Consider Greg overlooked no more, Dee. Dude's getting an overdue promotion!I watched 90210 and loved it! However, I never watched the original show. What do I need to know to make the new series less confusing? TaraM...

There's no doubt about it: New TV hits can bring old, short-lived shows to DVD.Just ask Taye Diggs, who's hot enough in Private Practice that his 2006 effort, Day Break, will hit stores at the end of this month. Or Kim Raver: Her old show, Third Watch, was in hugely high demand for a DVD release... but the studio didn't actually pull the trigger on getting it out (early last month) until Raver was cast in the new series Lipstick Jungle. Christina Applegate is doing well with Samantha Who?, so naturally more season-set releases are getting dug up for Married... with Children (Season 8 hits in a couple of weeks). Ditto for Party of Five, which finally returns to DVD later this month, thanks to Matthew Fox's current hit show, Lost. (Jennifer Love Hewitt's good-enough turn in Ghost Whisperer doesn't hurt there, either!)This phenomenon is not only limited to cast members, either. With Heroes having hit superpower levels in the ratings, is it any wonder that creator Tim Kring's previous s...

After years of patiently waiting, Third Watch has finally entered the DVD universe! In celebration of this weeks first-season release, I stole some time with Officer Ty Davis himself, Coby Bell, to talk about shooting the show, cracking up his on-screen sidekick and what took so damn long!According to my research, you were the only actor on the show who appeared in every episode. Oh wow. Was I? [Laughs] I didnt know that.Says you also did really well on a Third Watch edition of The Weakest Link? I do remember that. And I surprised myself. [Laughs] It was members of the cast and [series creator] Ed Bernero did it, too. I kept looking over at my wife and was just pulling these answers out of my ass. Honestly, I didnt know where they were coming from! [Laughs]How was it filming the show in New York? It was so early in my career. I mean, I graduated college in 97. I was in this show called L.A. Doctors in 98, which only lasted a season. Then that pilot seas...
