Fans of The Simpsons are on edge this year, as executive producer Al Jean teased back in October that the axe will fall on a character in the season 26 premiere. The only clues? The character has appeared more than twice on the show and is voiced by an actor who won an Emmy for playing the role (or roles).
While everyone scrambles to place their bets on the identity of the unlucky victim (the latest in a long line of offed characters including Maude Flanders, Fat Tony, and Bleeding Gums Murphy), Hank Azaria dropped a major clue about the Springfield resident who will kick the bucket in next fall’s season premiere.

Fox’s American Idol is getting closer to finalizing a judges panel for its 12th season.
Sources say Latin singer-songwriter Enrique Iglesias has now received a firm offer for a spot on the reality hit, which may expand to four judges next year despite shedding its entire previous panel.
EW.com reported last week that rapper Nicki Minaj and Aussie country artist Keith Urban were poised to join pop diva Mariah Carey on the show, and that Iglesias (or, if he passes, Adam Lambert) could fill a fourth spot. Longtime Idol judge Randy Jackson is set to move to a mentor role. Now we’re hearing Iglesias has received an offer for about $4 million per year, on par with Urban’s deal.
Fox and producers have only confirmed Carey at this point and have no comment on any of the other names or the number of judges. READ FULL STORY
Another young talent has joined NBC’s Office spinoff.
Former College Humor comedy actor Thomas Middleditch is going down to The Farm. Middleditch, who also has a role in the upcoming film The Campaign, will play Dwight Schrute’s brother Jeb.
Jeb is described as a pot farmer who’s failed at bunch of wacky business ventures (such as Bigfoot hunter). He joins actress Majandra Delfino who’s been previously cast as Dwight’s younger sister Fannie.
With The Farm filling out its cast and NBC deciding to end The Office after the upcoming ninth season, it seems very likely this spinoff will at least make it to the pilot stage (which as an episode of The Office during the final season).
An actor from NBC’s Harry’s Law has found refuge on the network’s new fall action drama Revolution.
The J.J. Abrams-produced series has cast Derek Webster in a recurring role as Nicholas. He’s a strong rebel leader who faces off against Billy Burke’s character Miles, who’s on the run from a militia.
Webster has also appeared in FX’s Damages and the 1994 film version of Stargate. He joins another recent cast addition to the show, Lost‘s Elizabeth Mitchell. Revolution goes 15 years into the future of America after a blackout has wiped out all electronics. The series premieres Monday, Sept. 17 at 10 p.m. on NBC.
