My mole in Elmo, Alaska, just gave me the OK to solve last Friday's Men in Trees asterisk quiz. As some of you correctly guessed, producers have successfully wooed Orlando Jones (aka ***a*** ***e*) to play George, Buzz's (John Amos) gay son. Slated to appear in at least two episodes, George will pay Pops a visit in Elmo in early '07.

BTW, although I haven't seen it, I hear tonight's episode is the best yet. In other words, if you haven't joined the growing Trees cult, now would be a good time.
