Jenny here, filling in for Megan, to give her some more time to pack and run around like a chicken with its head cut off before they move. *grin* First time in a long time I’ve posted news, so I hope it’s ok! šŸ˜‰

According to EOnline, Kristin Chenoweth is joining the cast of Glee. Unfortunately, it’s just for a single episode (ep 4). She plays “April Rhodes, who turns out to be quite the alcoholic and bad influence on the glee club members.” Who knows! Maybe she’ll enjoy it so much and everyone will of course love her enough that she’ll sign on permanently! We can cross our fingers, right?

More news about Kristin Chenoweth & others after the jump!

Speaking of Kristin Chenoweth, she has signed on to be a guest judge on American Idol for the Orlando auditions. If you watched Pushing Daisies, or know anything about the amazing Ms. Chenoweth, you’ll know that she is a wonderful singer with an amazing range. Should be fun having her there to banter with Simon, Randy & Kara! Zap2It

If you are a fan of Burn Notice like I am, this should interest you. Garret Dillahunt has signed on to play Simon, a new client of Michael Weston’s (Jeffrey Donovan). The episode will air this winter when the show returns to finish its third season. (Also, that same episode features the return of Frasier’s John Mahoney as Management. Ausiello @ EW

On the “not really NEWS yet, but fun and interesting none-the-less” front, Bones exec producer Hart Hanson has said that they are looking to get Emily Deschanel’s (Temperence Brennan) real-life sister, Zooey, to guest star on the show finally this season, hopefully for the Christmas episode. They have wanted to have her on for years, but her schedule made it impossible. I think it would be fun to see, so I’m definitely crossing my fingers! Ausiello @ EW

One of mine and my husband’s favorite summer shows, Leverage, has been renewed for a third season on TNT! Woohoo! If you haven’t seen it, check it out, please! It’s weel worth the watch. The Futon Critic

Speaking of favorites, one of my favorite actors from my much-missed Jericho, Lennie James (who played Hawkins on Jericho) is joining the cast of Lie to Me as Ray Marsh. Marsh is Lightman’s (Tim Roth) nemesis and is an old… friend/acquaintance of Lightman’s who is back after a 20 year separation. More info here: Ausiello @ EW

Finally, here is a short Question & Answer session with Korbi @ Zap2It, with spoilers for Entourage, Scrubs, Brothers & Sisters and more. Like Megan always says, if you don’t like to be spoiled, DON’T click the link! SPOILER Chat with Korbi @ Zap2It
