    Sean Faris as a cop on PLL? I can dig it :)

    • Maggie says:

      me too! I may be the only person who was bummed his show Life As We Know It was cancelled many moons ago, I was wondering when he would pop back up on screen for more than just a couple eps on a show!

  2. Rivera says:

    yeay for Hot in Cleveland :D

  3. Andy says:

    Great news for Hot in Cleveland, and I’ve loved Ray Wise since Twin Peaks, so that will be fun.

  4. iMember says:

    Oh noooo, not another character on PLL. If there was ever a show that did not need to add any new characters into the mix, it’s PLL.

  5. Doug says:

    Please don’t perpetuate the Rusty storyline on Major Crimes! He is more annoying than Brenda’s parents, but at least they only visited occasionally.

    • dee123 says:

      It looks like he’s not going anywhere. Which is good i like Rusty.

    • kate says:

      don’t know how you can say that. Rusty turned Captain Raydor from a robot into a real person, and she turned him from a punk into a loveable stray. I love their dynamic. I definitely want more of it.

      • Skosh says:

        I also like the Rusty/Raydor storyline. It’s the main reason I kept watching after the Closer ended. Don’t turn him into too much of a goody-goody, though. Flashes of defiance would be good, but also show his vulnerability due to being dumped by his mother (twice!).

      • Ginger says:

        I agree! She had no personality. I like her with Rusty much better than Brenda because Brenda had never been a mother so she had no prior personality to draw upon. With Raydor you see flashes of what she was like as a younger woman/mother. Brenda’s parent were a sideshow, Rusty is much more human.

  6. Amanda says:

    Karen!!!! Ah. She’s brilliant at comedy. If any one hasn’t seen her parody of “I kissed a girl”…look that up on YouTube.

  7. d4h8a15r16m23a42 says:

    Hopefully she will still make the occasional appearance on The League.

  8. Candace says:

    Sean Faris went to my high school so I always get really excited when I read he got cast in something.

  9. Ana says:

    Hopefully Nadine can infuse new life and energy to MC. Because that show has decelerated considerably since Kyra left. It just doesn’t have the appeal and intellect of The Closer. And, a 24 episode S5 of Hot in Cleveland? Heck yes!!!

    Is Sophia leaving Ruxin?
