Question: Have you heard anything about Mary (Jessica Biel) coming back for the series finale of 7th Heaven?

Answer: She's been asked, but series creator Brenda Hampton isn't holding her breath. "I doubt [she'd do it]," she says. "She has a film career. If she does, it's great, but I'm not expecting to get that call. At the same time, I feel that the other actors have made the show work in her absence, and I want to honor those people who have been here for the long run." I suspect if Hampton really wanted to do right by the show's veterans, she'd recast Mary with one of those Fandango lunch-bag people and light a match.
