Question: Do you have any news on how Jeri Ryan's pregnancy is going to affect Shark? Is there any chance of her returning for this season's final four episodes?

Answer: She's due in March, so, um, no. But Shark execs are turning this crisis into an opportunity and bringing in a big-name actress to replace Ryan during her absence. One option that was being bandied about pre-strike was bringing back previous guest star Sherry Stringfield to fill the void. Not sure if that's still in the cards.
