Any news on who's in talks to ...

Question: Any news on who's in talks to star in Aaron Sorkin's new NBC show? Someone must be talking. Answer: Someone is talking, and luckily to me. Sources confirm that Sorkin has approached — brace yourselves for some serious scoopage — former Friend Matthew Perry to headline Studio 7 on the Sunset Strip, which revolves around the behind-the-scenes goings-on at a Saturday Night Live-type sketch show. I'm also hearing that Sorkin has put feelers out to a big-name female to play the show's co-lead. (Hint: She shares the same first name as a legendary Melrose Place vixen, and her last name rhymes with "heat.")
