• Curtis has signed on to CBS’ untitled medical drama from David Marshall Grant; she’ll play Caroline, a physician and hospital administrator who’s also the mother of quadruplets who grew up on a reality show.

• Williamson will play Ray, a Philadelphia cop and potential love interest for the titular troubled psychic in ABC’s Clementine.

• Levieva has joined the potential NBC drama Coercion, playing a member of a recently reactivated Russian sleeper cell… who just happens to be the sister of a patriotic war hero/CIA analyst.

    • I used to love her, but NCIS really soured me on her. I don’t know if she changed or I did, but can’t stand her now.

  • I wish Leslie would find a good show, she deserves better than to play a sitcom wife. Long live Brooke McQueen!

    • I’ll always have a soft spot for Popular! While GCB was on, I pretended that Leslie was playing an older Brooke McQueen just to give me that satisfaction. But honestly, I wouldn’t mind her sticking around on The Following because her character/storyline has potential.

      • I feel like she’ll likely be dead by the end of the season on The Following. Joe’s followers never last long. So happy to see another Popular fan though! I miss that show.

  • Wasn’t Jamie Lee Curtis going to be on a show about final girls in horror movies or something like that?

  • Margarita Levieva and Erika Christensen need to do something together where they play sisters.

    • Wow, never thought about that until you pointed it out! Would love to see that!

    • I seriously thought that was Erika when I glanced at the picture!

  • Jamie Lee Curtis could do so much more!

  • I thought Jamie Lee Curtis was attached to star in a drama for ABCFamily. Is that no longer happening?

  • Love Margarita!

  • I would love to see Margarita’s pilot get picked up. She was one of the best things about season one of Revenge. I just hope Coercion can differentiate itself from The Americans. I know a lot of people will be complaining that broadcast networks can never think of any original ideas. Hopefully the script is interesting and compelling! That’s all we can ask for!

  • What about the poop yogurt? Will they sponsor the Jamie Lee show?

  • I’m confused, Leslie Bibb is in About A Boy, so does this mean she will be killed off, or more likely replaced what with it being a comedy, so she is free to do the Love Is Relative show, or will she be double dipping and doing both at once, if that is the case then methinks she is gonna be knackered, though having her on tv twice a week will be great. :)

    • Isn’t she only recurring on About A Boy. She could easily be written out if they break up.
