Observe This: The Fringe Musical Episode is Happening

  • 29comments

... Aaaaaaaand I'm squealing, because there's going to be a musical episode of Fringe. Philip Broyles (Lance Reddick, who's also a professional musician) will perform a number, as will Astrid (Jasika Nicole), Olivia (Anna Torv), and Nina (Blair Brown). I hate using the word "epic," but this sounds too epic. Dare I suggest a Glee-Fringe crossover? [io9]

... Castle's Kate Beckett (Stana Katic) is finally going to get serious with a guy—and it's not going to be Castle (Nathan Fillion). Former Battlestar Galactica star Michael Trucco is set to guest-star in the last four episodes of this season as a hunky homicide detective, and his character might even return in the fall. [Ausiello]

... Beau Bridges got himself a gig! He'll star as Rocky, truck-driver father to the title character (Dermot Mulroney) in the forthcoming remake of The Rockford Files. In other casting news, Skeet Ulrich has joined yet another CBS drama. All we know is that it's an untitled medical show, and that John Wells is producing it. Hopefully the powers that be will release more information before we actually see the pilot. [THR & THR]

... Sad news. Fess Parker, star of Davy Crockett and favorite son of the baby-boomer generation, died yesterday at his home in Santa Ynez Valley, California. He was also known for roles in Disney films like The Great Locomotive Chase, Westward Ho the Wagons!, and Old Yeller. Parker was 85. [THR]

... Modern Family's Ty Burrell will now have a family of his own! Burrell and his wife, Molly, adopted a baby girl. No word yet on whether Baby Burrell has perfected the eye-roll of her father's on-screen offspring, or if Burrell has already decided to call his daughter's future prom date "homes." [People]

... South Park's Season 14 premiere was the show's most-watched premiere in ten years! The episode, which aired Wednesday night on Comedy Central, mocked celebrity sex addiction. Nice work, Parker and Stone. [Live Feed]
