  • 45comments

... Summer Glau, pretty as she is, is bringing her icy touch of cancellation to NBC's superhero drama pilot The Cape. She'll play an "investigative blogger," whatever that is, in this show about a cop who becomes a semi-superhero. Glau's previous roles include stints on the high-profile cancellations Firefly, Terminator: The Sarah Connor Chronicles, and Dollhouse. [THR]

... Larry David said there's a "pretty good chance" that he'll cook up another season of HBO's Curb Your Enthusiasm. The actor-writer, not HBO, has the final say whether or not he wants to make another season of the exaggeration biography because he's Larry frickin' David. [Variety]

... Will Ferrell has recruited two other Saturday Night Live outcasts vets for his new Comedy Central show. Chris Parnell and Horatio Sanz will join Jon Heder as three losers in the upcoming untitled comedy, set to debut later this year. This should be nice and mediocre. [Variety]

... Battlestar Galactica's James Callis is sticking with SyFy. The man who played Gaius Baltar (undeniably BSG's best character) will join the cast of Eureka for its fourth season. He'll play a former resident of the town who returns and shakes things up. [SyFy via press release]

... Rumor is NBC may save Jack Bauer if Fox decides to break up with 24. We heard last week that Fox was looking to end the drama's run on the network, but 24's production studio asked NBC if they were interested, which they were. And then Bobby told Gina that she heard that NBC thought 24 was cute, but NBC just started this thing with Comcast. And then Mike's cousin Julie said she heard that James said that would be, like, a stupid idea. And then... [EW]

... The Office has guaranteed at least one more viewing from me by hiring Amy Pietz for a few episodes. What? You don't know who Amy Pietz is? Duh, she was only the mom in Aliens in America and one of the most underrated TV actresses out there. I was also going to say something about her being a MILF, but that would be immature. This is a respectable site. [EW]

... Paul Schneider is leaving Parks and Recreation to concentrate on his film career, which is fine with me because he's been awesome in every movie I've seen him in. [LA Times]
