Martians are coming to Everwood! Actually, it's just Anne Heche (née Celestia), who is joining the WB drama as a series regular this season. According to The Hollywood Reporter, the Emmy-winning actress will play a love interest for star Treat Williams. In related news, Everwood producers are at last ditching the show's painfully earnest voice-over narration. But they're not shooting the messenger, John Beasley, who will keep his day job as good-hearted bus driver Irv Harper. "We love John Beasley," executive producer Rina Mimoun tells TV Guide. "He's staying."
