Friday!!! Woo-hoo! What a long day, but it’s been beautiful here. Today was a sunny, warm spring day and I spent it with my family outside. Now I’m all yours with some TV news, pay attention there’s some good stuff coming your way.
Rachelle Lefevre (The Twilight Saga) has signed on to the new CBS medical drama that is yet to be named. It’s from produce John Wells (ER), and “revolves around a team of medical professionals who travel the U.S. helping those in desperate need of assistance.” So basically it’s a travelling ER. Lefevre will play “Katy…a smart confident medical road warrior who’s more comfortable working in the field than in the office.” I have always enjoyed Lefevre, especially in What About Brian so I’m pleased that she’ll be coming back to our TV sets soon. I’ll let you know when the series has a title! 😀 Source
More after the jump
FOX has cancelled the drama, Past Life. I honestly can’t say I’m surprised, it’s kind of horrible 🙁 . The drama will be pulled off the schedule right away, with the slot being filled with new episodes of Kitchen Nightmares starting next week. The remaining episodes will more than likely be aired this summer. Is anyone out there surprised? Source
The adorable Jake McLaughlin (Crash), has been cast to play Alex Karev’s (Justin Chambers) younger brother who will make an appearance sometime in April. McLaughlin will be a patient in the episode but he’ll also make trouble for Alex by drudging up family history that Alex would rather leave buried. This story line intrigues me and I’m excited to see how it plays out. Source
Wow, Adam Rodriguez who plays Eric Delko on CSI: Miami is giving me whip lash. After leaving Miami earlier this season he will return next season full time. Now don’t get me wrong I enjoy looking at him as much as the next girl, but when I heard that he would be back on the show full time next season I was a little disappointed. I really enjoy the new dynamic since he’s been gone, and I also enjoy the lack of Eric drama. Alas, the writers better step it up with his character next season because otherwise this TV journalist might just stop watching. 🙁 Source
William Shatner has been cast as the dad in the new CBS comedy pilot based on the Twitter/facebook hit, S**T My Dad Says. I’m actually against this lead casting, so CBS you need to fix it. Shatner is amusing (and he’s Canadian which is a plus in my opinion) but he’s not what I believe picture the dad to be. I would have loved to see either John Mahoney (Frasier) or perhaps James Garner (8 Simple Rules). Whatever the case, CBS needs to rethink this casting ASAP. That’s just my opinion. 😉 Source
That’s all for this Friday, but as promised I will be back this weekend with some reviews as well as my thoughts on the Top 24 on American Idol. Have a great weekend!
