TVLine Items: Dexter Star Drops In on Justified, Psych Sets Return Date and More!

Imagine our surprise when we popped in the upcoming Justified Season 3 premiere (not-so-subtle brag intended) and Desmond Harrington appeared on the screen.

It turns out the Dexter star has a (formerly) top-secret guest spot on the FX drama’s season opener, and while we can’t say much, we can tell you this: Harrington’s character is a total badass boasting a deep Southern accent and ties to Jere Burns’ Wynn Duffy (who is back in a big way this winter).

For now, the role is a one-off gig, but this is Justified, so you never know when someone might resurface.

Ready for more of today’s TV dish? Well…

Psych, which just aired its fall finale this week, now has a return date: Season 6.5 is set to premiere Wednesday, Feb. 29, per E! Online.

Melrose Place alum Colin Egglesfield will co-star on Lifetime’s upcoming series adaptation of The Client List, Deadline reports, playing Jennifer Love Hewitt’s brother-in-law.

Sopranos/Entourage alumna Jamie-Lynn Sigler will guest-star on an upcoming episode of ABC’s Last Man Standing, TV Guide Magazine reports, playing Hector Elizondo’s businesswoman daughter.

The family of Clint Eastwood — yes, that Clint Eastwood — is said to be shooting a reality series for E! According to TMZ, the Oscar winner’s wife and two daughters are hard at work on a show that aims to “explore what it’s like to live in a family of ‘Hollywood royalty.'”

Former supermodel and America’s Next Top Model judge Janice Dickinson is launching a London-based reality series, titled Sober Model House, reports. It’s about… well, the name is pretty self-explanatory.

• Beverly Hills, 90210 alumna Jennie Garth and Bachelor also-ran Melissa Rycroft have nabbed reality shows on CMT, respectively. I Love Jennie follows Garth’s move from Los Angeles to a farm in Central California, while Melissa and Tye: A New Reality examines Rycroft’s pursuit of a career in Hollywood.

MTV has ordered 20-episode second seasons of the reality series FriendZone and The Substitute, per The Hollywood Reporter.

    • S. says:

  2. Elizabeth says:

    I love, love, love Psych! Shawn and Gus, forever and always :)

    Have a lot of love for Justified too.
    Funny, because I just saw Desmond Harrington in NYC last weekend. Looking forward to seeing him on Justified!

  3. Diane says:

    Seriously, a Clint Eastwood family reality show? I am honestly shocked.

  4. sarah says:

    I like Melissa Rycroft alot and part had to do with her not wanting to go all Hollywood and yes while she is a correspondent this sounds like she will be the next overrated reality celeb

    I guess Jennie saw that Tori is raking it in with her reality show so now she wants the same thing..WHY JENNIE you should have stayed on 90210 and actual tv show

  5. Sam says:

    Jamie-Lynn Sigler needs to get her little butt to The Good Wife to play Alicia’s niece or whatever. She is way too talented to be in the rut she’s in. Also, she looks like Julianna. Make it happen!

    is it just me or does dexter dude RREAAALLLYYYY need to cut his hair? i get it that it fits with his character going through a rough patch, but its seriously heinous.

  7. Bad Breaker says:

    I’m glad to see Harrington getting some other gigs. I don’t like the direction they’ve taken with Quinn this season on Dexter. He’s always been a bit of a jerk, and that’s ok, but turning him into a major drunk who gets so wasted he can’t show up for work the next day is really unrealistic.

  8. mags says:

    Can’t wait for Psych to come back. This season has been great. I was afraid that the Shawn/Juliette relationship would ruin the show, but it’s been working wonderfully. Now they need to give Gus a girlfriend who isn’t crazy.

  9. Henry says:

    I agree about Sean and Jules, if the get engaged, then he’ll HAVE to come clean. I think that may ruin the show, but, they have been kicking butt for 6 1/2 years!!
