  5. Hm, for some reason I thought there were supposed to be three daughters. Maybe I misread the earlier reports!

    I have SO missed Scott Foley, not sure I like him with Becki Newton though…she just isn’t all that, sorry to those who luv her.
    Now if we can get James Wolk back on a regular series that’d be totally awesome – love him in Happy Endings guest role!!!!

    Ah must mean he’s not long for True Blood or going to be on it past this season. This definitely jumped into buzzed about now though I guarantee.
