Casting Couch: Estes Hooks Up with "Women's Murder Club"

Ah, remember the days of Silk Stalkings?

Rob Estes has signed on to co-star on ABC's drama Women's Murder Club, based on the series of books from James Patterson.

Series, which revolves around the crime-fighting heroics of homicide detective Lindsay Boxer (Angie Harmon) and her three friends, all who have unique investigative skills that they bring to the mix.

On Women's Murder Club, Estes will play the ex-husband of Harmon's character, an ambitious police lieutenant with whom she has--wait for it--unresolved feelings. (Gee, you didn't see that one coming, now did you?) The role, which was quite small in the original pilot episode, has now been expanded for Estes.

As for Estes, who has such credits as Melrose Place, The Evidence, Gilmore Girls, and the aforementioned Silk Stalkings to his name, he most recently appeared on CSI: Miami in a recurring role.

In other casting news, Edward Herrmann has joined the cast of Grey's Anatomy in a multiple episode story arc.

For those of you still hurting from the creative slide (and eventual cancellation) of Gilmore Girls, here's your chance to catch the former Richard Gilmore in a new role.

Details about Herrmann's role on Grey's Anatomy are being kept closely guarded by ABC, but it's been indicated that he will play a doctor in at least three episodes next season.

Stay tuned.

Hmm...interesting casting but I read the script for the pilot and was very underwhelmed. Not sure how it will do overall.

Katie Lee Packs Her Knives: Breaking News from Bravo's "Top Chef"

The android has left the building. Or the test kitchen, anyway. Top Chef 's robotic host Katie Lee Joel, the veritable "Uptown Girl" herself (pictured at left), will NOT be sticking around for a second course of Bravo's hit culinary competition. According to a well-placed insider, Joel will "not be returning" to the show. No reason for her departure was cited. Unfortunately, the perfect replacement for Joel, Top Chef judge and professional chef Tom Colicchio, will not be taking over as the reality series' host (damn!). Instead, the show's producers are currently scouring to find a replacement for Joel. Top Chef 's second season was announced by Bravo last month, but no return date has been set for the series' ten-episode sophomore season. Stay tuned as this story develops. UPDATE (6/27): Bravo has now confirmed the above story .

What's Done is Done: The Eternal Struggle Between Good and Evil on the Season Finale of "Lost"

Every story begins with thread. It's up to the storyteller to determine just how much they need to parcel out, what pattern they're making, and when to cut it short and tie it off. With last night's penultimate season finale of Lost ("The Incident, Parts One and Two"), written by Damon Lindelof and Carlton Cuse, we began to see the pattern that Lindelof and Cuse have been designing towards the last five seasons of this serpentine series. And it was only fitting that the two-hour finale, which pushes us on the road to the final season of Lost , should begin with thread, a loom, and a tapestry. Would Jack follow through on his plan to detonate the island and therefore reset their lives aboard Oceanic Flight 815 ? Why did Locke want to kill Jacob? What caused The Incident? What was in the box and just what lies in the shadow of the statue? We got the answers to these in a two-hour season finale that didn't quite pack the same emotional wallop of previous seas

Have a Burning Question for Team Darlton, Matthew Fox, Evangeline Lilly, or Michael Emerson?

Lost fans: you don't have to make your way to the island via Ajira Airways in order to ask a question of the creative team or the series' stars. Televisionary is taking questions from fans to put to Lost 's executive producers/showrunners Damon Lindelof and Carlton Cuse and stars Matthew Fox ("Jack Shephard"), Evangeline Lilly ("Kate Austen"), and Michael Emerson ("Benjamin Linus") for a series of on-camera interviews taking place this weekend. If you have a specific question for any of the above producers or actors from Lost , please leave it in the comments section below . I'll be accepting questions until midnight PT tonight and, while I can't promise I'll be able to ask any specific inquiry due to the brevity of these on-camera interviews, I am looking for some insightful and thought-provoking questions to add to the mix. So who knows: your burning question might get asked after all.
