True Blood Finds its Debbie Pelt

... I don't read the Sookie Stackhouse books, but even I know this is big news: True Blood has cast the role of Debbie Pelt. Pelt, the batty ex of werewolf Alcide, will be played by Brit Morgan, formerly of ABC Family's excellent The Middleman. As for True Blood Season 3, it sounds like things are going to go a little cray-cray. [THR]

... It was obvious former Reaper star Bret Harrison wasn't going to stay unemployed for too long, he's just too good. Bret has joined the cast of an untitled Fox comedy about super-smart computer hackers. Also finding new homes: Laura Prepon is joining Awkward Situations For Men, and Michael Kelly is joining CBS' Criminal Minds spinoff. [THR]

... Jon Hamm returns to 30 Rock on February 11, thus making him the new face of NBC after killing it on Saturday Night Live. Yep, the lead in one of television's most critically acclaimed shows (Mad Men) is hanging around NBC. Not a good idea, dude. [Zap2It]

... Without a Trace's Enrique Murciano will be making out with everyone in the new Shonda Rhimes show. The latest offering from the Grey's Anatomy creator, Off the Map, focuses on doctors that work on a tropical island. Murciano will play one of the three main characters. [THR]

... Speaking of Without a Trace, TNT may have lost a bunch of cash by buying the cable rights to the show. The repeats didn't fare so well on TNT, and the network may have lost more than $100 million. Yikes. [LA Times]

... Louis C.K. is giving television another go, and I seriously hope it works out because he's a really funny guy. Like, really funny. I mean, type Louis C.K. into Google and the second suggestion is "Louis C.K. hilarious." Is Google ever wrong? Obviously not. Anyway, he has a new show coming out on FX, and here's the first preview.

It definitely isn't a good idea to hang around NBC right now. Run Jon while you have the chance.

HBO's cast for Lucky Louie was good. The writing and set up was wrong. It just had no room to grow. When you watch the Life and Times of Tim you can see the room that Louie needed.
