Question: Thank god for FX and its Famke-love. Any news on what Famke Janssen's character will be on The Shield?

Answer: As I mentioned in Press Tour Diary: Fox Day Two, it's Franka Potente, not Famke Janssen, who's doing The Shield. And she's playing the wife of an Armenian mob boss. BTW, FX screened the sixth-season premiere for critics at press tour, and I'm not overselling it when I say it's a step up from brilliant. There's a scene between Forest Whitaker and Michael Chiklis outside Kavanaugh's house that will give you goose bumps. I'm counting the days until January.
