Question: Thanks for the Nip/Tuck scoop in this week's vodcast. I heard a rumor that a certain Alias hunk shows a little skin in next week's episode. True?

Answer: Well, I'll say this about Bradley Cooper in the Jan. 23 episode: He's never been cheekier. Speaking of next Tuesday's ep, someone has an HIV scare, and there's a major shake-up at "Hearts & Scalpels."
