If this week’s Ask Ausiello were to be repackaged as a DVD, the following scooplets would constitute the bonus material…
24: Is Kim Bauer following her dad to New York next season? You tell me: The show is looking for a 6-year-old actress to play Kim’s now-4-year-old kid for an arc. Shooting gets underway later this month, assuming Kiefer Sutherland’s recent headbutt heard ’round the world doesn’t screw everything up.
Heroes: Tim Kring and Co. are on the prowl for a twentysomething actress to play a love interest for one of the main Heroes in season 4. The character will be introduced in the fourth episode and, here’s where things get interesting, interested candidates must be hearing impaired. My peeps on Twitter are already campaigning for Jericho‘s Shoshannah Stern to get the part.
Monk: The series may be coming to an end but the webisodes are only beginning! An insider confirms that USA is developing a 10-episode web series about Monk’s childhood.
How I Met Your Mother: Neil Patrick Harris is pretty much confirming what I reported in Ask Ausiello today: Stella ain’t the mother, despite how things may have looked at the end of Monday’s episode. "There have already been episodes where older Ted is saying that she’s not, so we’d have to go against our word to make that the case," he says. "But I think she’ll have something to do with the realization of who the mother is." (Additional reporting by Emmet Sullivan)
