Glee Is Hittin' the Road

... Sing-song extravaganza Glee is taking its show on the road. Fox has announced a four-city concert tour kicking off this May, which will see the stars of the show perform their hits live in a stage musical. The tour starts May 18 in Phoenix, then heads to Los Angeles (May 20, 21), Chicago (May 25, 26), and New York City (May 28, 29). Tickets go on sale March 12. [Fox]

... There's lots of casting news today, but my favorite item is that James Callis, Battlestar Galactica's Gaius Baltar, is heading over to ABC's FlashForward for the sci-fi show's final episodes. Let me clarify, when I say favorite, I mean he's my favorite actor. I still think FlashForward is an unholy mess. [Digital Spy]

... More BSG: Grace Park has joined the CBS remake of Hawaii Five-O, playing the sexy niece of Chin Ho Kelly (Lost's Daniel Dae Kim). I added the "sexy" part because, well, this. (Warning: Link points to sexy by-the-fireplace pic.) There's no way this doesn't go to series, and I am volunteering myself to conduct a set visit. It's been almost a month since I last went to Hawaii for work! [THR]

... Dylan Walsh and Joely Richardson of Nip/Tuck are headed to CBS' ATF and ABC's The Whole Truth, respectively. Walsh will play an ATF agent who also has family issues, in the form of a teenage daughter that re-enters his life. Richardson will play a New York prosecutor on The Whole Truth, from Jerry Bruckheimer. [THR]

... Janeane Gafofalo has signed on to the untitled CBS medical drama from ER producer John Wells. First 24, now this? Didn't she used to make people laugh? [EW]

... NBC's Love Bites is now officially on my watch list. It's a rom-com, and I'm still intrigued. Why? Because they added My Boys' Jordana Spiro to the cast as the older of two sisters. And her younger sister? Ugly Betty's Becki Newton, who is ready to break out any day now. [THR]

... This one is mostly for me, because I'm obsessed with Bob Odenkirk, from Mr. Show and Breaking Bad. He's joined the CBS pilot Team Spitz, which stars The Daily Show's Rob Riggle. More Bob is always a good thing. [THR]

... NBC is dusting off a new season of The Sing-Off, which is news to me because I thought that poor excuse for a show was buried a long time ago. [The Wrap]

... Paula Abdul news! She turned down a million dollars from ABC to do Dancing With the Stars. Because she's crazy. Or because she stands to make two million working on the US version of The X Factor. [TMZ]

    I could always use more of Janeane Garofalo (and you could try spelling her name right!) on my television screen. She's tough, unique, and funny when she wants to be.

    Love Bites sounds good because of the stars, not the title. At first I was worried about My Boys, but it's got such a short schedule Jordana should be able to do both.

    He He, you are funny guy:) I would post another pic though:)
    Well, i am glad that Walsh is getting some family issues, nothing better than old Matt problems:)
    I am concerned for Richardson, ABC means already been canceled. Hope not for hers sake.)
    And who cares for Glee, yes, they can sing, but act no chance, they are terrible actors.

    The original Five-O was about the cases and the lengths that Five-O went to catch the bad guys...this remake sounds like it'll a pretty poor comparison.

    That Glee concert tour will probably do well.
