  • Is it just the photo or did Alicia Witt get a nose job? I hope not. She was always so gorgeous. I hope it’s just lighting and camera angle.

    She’s a terrific talent, I’m thrilled she’s going to be on Justified this season.

  • Good for Kyle. I bet this will be the role that finally let’s people take him seriously (a la David Walton in New Girl).
