Exciting Casting News!!
I've got good news and bad news. Last week it was announced Kristen Bell had turned down the offer to appear on Lost in season 4 (boo). But... Bell has officially joined the cast of Heroes (yay!) It's probably what she was holding out for, and figured it was the better bet career-wise. Her character's name will be Elle, and she'll be connected to three other existing characters (I won't say who, in case people deem that a spoiler). More info can be found here.

Entourage and Flight of the Conchords have both been renewed for new seasons. I have to catch up on FotC, but Entourage has been great in the second half of this season. Last night's ep was great (maybe it was because there was less Turtle and Drama predictable bumbling, and more Ari), though it left you a little uneasy from Eric's point of view. And is it wrong of me to have been upset that Walsh's girlfriend had taken the bullets out of the gun? Dammit... I can't wait until we finally see Medellin. Who thinks it's going to be terrible?

I swear this guy is Dorian Gray.

In other news, Finding Lost Season 3 has gone to the printer, and I'm excited about that, and I've been asked to be a part of another book project called The Essential Cult Television Reader. Yay! And I'm also going to appear in a book on Heroes this fall. I'll do a blog soon just on that book.

My daughter's birthday party was a success. Eighteen adults and six children, and not a single child was hurt or crying or upset, so that was a good thing. And my daughter suddenly dropped off to sleep at 7:20, which was worth the entire day itself. Ah... a three-year-old. How time flies...

James Marsters IS Dorian Gray! the man never gets old! I on the other hand turned 43 last week, and I look it!
glad you birthday party went well. I've officiated MANY a scream fest of a birthday party, so one where no one cries? extra bonus point to you!
Kristen Bell on Heroes sounds better than Lost, no offense to Lost them both so much
