TGIF! I am looking forward to some rest and relaxing this weekend. The chances of that with my daughter running around are slim, but who knows? 😉 Let’s get to some news.
After being let go from CSI: Miami, Eddie Cibrian has landed on his feet with multiple episodes on the new drama, Chase. The new NBC drama, will focus on a team of U.S. marshals that are searching for America’s top fugitives. Cibrian will be playing a bounty hunter in at least two episodes in October. Source
More after the jump.
Terrence Howard (Iron Man), has joined the cast of Law & Order : Los Angeles, as Deputy District Attorney. He’ll share the position with Alfred Molina. The cast is filling out nicely with Skeet Ulrich (Jericho), playing Detective Rex Winters and Corey Stoll (Salt) playing Ulrich’s partner. I really like Howard and think he’ll be a great addition to the cast.Source
There are rumours that Jennifer Lopez will be joining American Idol as a judge this coming season, and that they are still in talks with Steven Tyler (Aerosmith). It’s also been said that if a deal is not reached with Tyler then they’ll go to choice number 2, Harry Connick Jr. I’m kind of disappointed with this news. I really wanted Harry Connick Jr. to be the first choice for Simon’s replacement. With Ellen leaving and rumours of Kara KioGuardi not returning, that only leaves Randy Jackson on the list of returning judges. Now Nigel Lythgoe is said to be returning as producer, and he would like the original format of three judges, so will we see a panel of Randy, J Lo and Steven Tyler? *gag* I don’t think J. Lo is the right choice, and unless they choose Connick Jr. I’m going to be upset. What about you? Source
That’s all for now, I’ll be back Monday with more news!
