Laura Allen: (When asked by TV Guide.com what it was like working with Mahershalalhashbaz Ali again in "The 4400".) I adore that guy. He's left the show now as well, and he's doing great. We actually knew each other before The 4400, so he's like an old friend now.
Laura Allen: (When asked by TV Guide.com if she'll be back on "Dirt".) Yes, we go back to work in October. There's a cliff-hanger going on there, a stabbing between myself and Courteney Cox's character. It is undetermined who really got the knife.
Laura Allen: (On Courteney Cox and Jennifer Aniston's kiss on "Dirt".) Courteney has some steamy sex scenes. This was actually really tame.
