Alex O'Loughlin is Hawaii Five-O's Steve McGarrett

... First, press play on the video at the bottom of this page then scroll right back up here. Okay, got the music going? Good. Grooving? Sweet. Former Moonlight heartthrob and Three Rivers not-so-much-a-heartthrob-because-he-was-a-doctor-not-a-vampire, is island-bound in CBS' Hawaii Five-O remake.

... Alec Baldwin was rushed to the hospital early this morning slash late last night (12:10am) after his daughter Ireland called 911 claiming he was "unresponsive."

Considering Alec's well-publicized chewing-out of his daughter from a while back, I think there's a mystery here. And that mystery is: What is a 14-year old doing up after midnight!? [US Magazine]

So let's recap what happened: FlashForward was supposed to be the next Lost, then a bunch of showrunners left, the episode count was upped to 25, then reduced to 24, 23, and now 22. Flash-forward to next season: FlashForward isn't around. [Variety]

... Need some proof that all you need to make it in this world is to have sex with the right person? Tiger Woods' mistress Rachel Uchitel has landed a correspondent gig on that last-bastion-of-journalism Extra, and Levi Johnston, who knocked up Sarah Palin's daughter, is joining Desperate Housewives in a recurring role. So keep slutting it up and chase that American dream. [NY Post, Chicago Sun-Times]
