* The Office‘s Jenna Fischer — who currently co-stars with Rob Lowe on You, Me and the Apocalypse and soon has an arc on The Mysteries of Laura — will appear in a March episode of Lowe’s Fox comedy The Grinder. Per, Fischer will guest-star as Dean’s controlling onetime fiancée who was not supportive of his acting career.

* “Weird Al” Yankovic will voice the title role in Disney XD’s Milo Murphy’s Law. Premiering this fall, the animated comedy centers on the fictional great-great-great-great-grandson of the Murphy’s Law namesake, who always looks to make the best of any situation (despite being the personification of his ancestor’s infamous rule).

* CBS has announced more performers for this year’s Grammy Awards (airing Feb. 15), including Justin Bieber, Pitbull, Robin Thicke, Chris Stapleton (who will perform a tribute to B.B. King with Gary Clark, Jr. and Bonnie Raitt), and Alice Cooper, Johnny Depp and Joe Perry, whose rock group The Hollywood Vampires will make their TV debut.
