TV News – 7/1/10

Happy Canada Day! It’s the land that brought you Ryan Reynolds, Keanu Reeves, Hart Hanson (creator of Bones), Nathan Fillion(Castle), Joshua Jackson (Fringe), Anna Paquin(True Blood), Nina Dobrev (The Vampire Diaries), Gregory Smith (Rookie Blue), AJ Cook (Criminal Minds) and Cory Monteith (Glee) just to name a few. 🙂 It’s the land of Tim Hortons, and toques plus hockey is a religion here. We have contributed to TV with shows such as Degrassi and Corner Gas. We also allow everyone to film their shows/movies here and offer great tax incentives (we’re generous lol). Warehouse 13, Life Unexpected, Supernatural tape here plus so many more. If all of that goodness isn’t enough to celebrate this country that I love, then the fact that I was born here is enough to make you love it! 🙂

Okay enough patriotic ramblings, I’ll get to the news.

Blair Redford (Passions) will be joining the cast of 90210 next season in a sexy new role. He’ll be playing Oscar, who’s being described as “one part Talented Mr. Riply, one part young Johnny Depp, and all parts sexy.” I’m all for some fresh new sexy blood on the show aren’t you? The third season premieres on September 13th. Source

More after the jump.

Sadly, NBC has moved the new comedy, Love Bites to midseason, due to numerous reasons. The show is being replaced with a new season of The Apprentice in the Thursday 10 pm slot. Part of the complications include, Becki Newton is pregnant (congrats 🙂 ), Cindy Chupack stepped down from show runner to be just a writer for personal reasons, and they lost Jordana Spiro because of her commitment to My Boys. Frankly, I don’t think it’s the worst news for the show, a lot of shows have recently done well with a mid-season or summer launch, so it could be good… maybe? What do you think about this news?Source

Jane Lynch is going to guest star on… iCarly! That’s right, the Glee star has been cast as Sam’s (Jennette McCurdy) mom, and her episode will air during the show’s third season. I have a feeling she agreed to this role because her stepdaughter loves it, but whatever the case, Nickelodeon just got even cooler. 🙂 Source

Jethro Nededog from Zap2It did an awesome interview with Sam Trammell who plays the delicious shape shifter, Sam Merlote, on the fantastic HBO hit True Blood. Watch it and learn about nude scenes, and the Bill and Sam chemistry. Maybe it will tide you over until next week for a new episode of True Blood because there won’t be one this week due to the fourth of July. 🙁 Warning mild spoilers ahead. Consider yourself warned and check it out here.

Okay that’s all I have for now, but be sure to check out Rookie Blue tonight at 9 pm on ABC.
