TV's most-wanted stars for fall

In the next few weeks, the broadcast networks are going to need several high-profile actors to play assassins, vigilantes, Naval officers, and a Texas Ranger — among many, many other roles.

Now that the networks are wrapping their drama pilot orders and ordering comedies in earnest, the time has come to lasso the next big name that will generate heat (and eyeballs) come fall 2013. So far, CBS has been ahead of the game by snagging two headline-worthy actors to top a pair of comedies. Robin Williams has been cast in a workplace comedy, and Anna Faris will play a single mom in Chuck Lorre’s next comedy. But there are many other intriguing actors whose names have surfaced as possible contenders for drama and comedy pilots — assuming they find the right project (or haven’t already booked something in the time it took us to write this). Here are some new (and returning) actors who have us crossing our fingers.

Hugh Laurie. The popular English actor played his cards right by taking some time off to get viewers to forget his House.

ABC evicts 'Apt. 23'


ABC is pulling comedy series Don’t Trust the B—- in Apt. 23.

The low-rated Tuesday night series is being removed from the network’s primetime schedule. There’s eight episodes left in the can (13 were ordered and shot this season; plus six were leftover from last season). The network hasn’t decided when/if they’re going to see daylight. The network will air two episodes of the similarly struggling Happy Endings instead.

Now, it should be noted here that an ABC rep says the comedy is not cancelled. But as Apt. 23 co-star James Van Der Beek points out on Twitter, when a struggling show gets unexpectedly yanked from the schedule and its remaining episodes don’t have a return date … “Translation: We’ve basically been cancelled.” And when has The Beek ever lied to you? While ABC has been in c-word denial lately. Pan-Am, Last Resort, 666 … all were cancelled. Yet none were “cancelled.”

Bottom line: Apt. 23 could end up back on the air filling a time slot at some point, perhaps in the summer. The network will probably want to put those remaining episodes to use. But will it ever go back into production on additional episodes? Hmm, don’t trust the net that’s ABC…

'Don't Trust the B---- in Apt. 23': Krysten Ritter promises the show's 'most twisted' ep ever

How can Don’t Trust the B– possibly top storylines that saw titular bitch Chloe (Krysten Ritter) forcing a foster child to work as her indentured servant or proudly revealing that she stars in a Japanese comic book series called Tall Slut No Panties? With an episode that revolves around Chloe bringing her naive roommate June (Dreama Walker) home for Thanksgiving, obviously.

That logline sounds like it’s straight out of Sitcom Plots 101 — except for the fact that last season, June briefly dated Chloe’s father, Scott (Michael Landes). Oh, and Chloe’s wheelchair-bound mother, Karen (Marin Hinkle), has no idea about their fling. To top it all off, people-pleaser June has also allowed Chloe to convince her to show up for dinner in a wheelchair of her own.

“It might be the most twisted [episode]” of the ABC sitcom so far, Ritter told EW in a phone interview.  READ FULL STORY

TV's top time-period battles this fall

With the fall TV schedule now complete (below), we get to step back and take a look at the hellish battleground that broadcast hath wrought. There’s some very tough-to-predict match-ups this fall:*

Tim Allen vs. Whitney Cummings (Fridays, 8-9): “No, my show’s lamer!” ABC and NBC have their low-expectations comedies airing on Fridays this fall, and they might run head-to-head depending on when NBC launches (ABC’s comedies premiere in November). NBC has Whitney and Community and ABC has Last Man Standing and new comedy Malibu Country. (Community fans, if your ass beat by Reba McEntire and Lily Tomlin, we have no words for you). At least 9 p.m. shows Shark Tank and Grimm will have half-way decent lead-ins for once. Our prediction: Edge goes to ABC.

Britney Spears vs. Christina ‪Aguilera‬: OK, so one this is kind of a cheat. The Voice and X Factor won’t air on the same nights, let along in the same time period. But if you think their lack of head-to-head scheduling will matter to the media, you deserve to be hit, baby, one more time. Everybody will obsess over how these two compare. NBC’s The Voice has the wind at its back, averaging 6.2 in the adult demo this season compared to X Factor‘s 4.4. We all want to see how Spears handles the reality show spotlight, but many wonder if she can pull off being entertaining and analytical. Mark Burnett cast The Voice with big names who are charismatic and have the cojones to criticize a singer. Simon Cowell seems to like big names — who are just big names. Prediction: You can’t hold down Xtina. READ FULL STORY

'Beek Sneak of the Week': James Van Der Beek plays professor on 'Apt. 23' -- VIDEO


Whether you unabashedly love Don’t Trust the B—- in Apt. 23 or think ABC’s show could use a bit of tweaking, one thing’s for certain: James Van Der Beek is killing it in a role he was born to play. The boy whose ugly cry launched a thousand memes has finally grown into his face… and he’s proving himself to be both a great sport and a crack comic actor.

Case in point: This “Beek Sneak of the Week,” in which the actor heads to NYU to guest-teach a class. Though he’s decked out in a suit, a posh bow tie, and glasses that almost certainly contain prescription-free lenses, the assembled undergraduates have no interest in hearing James talk about Hamlet. Instead, they goad their celebrity prof into performing a seminal monologue from Dawson’s Creek — and Van Der Beek eventually complies, slipping on Dawson’s painfully sincere skin and delivering a few of the lines that made him famous. Cue Paula Cole.

Check out the scene for yourself below; Apt. 23‘s second episode airs tomorrow at 9:30. Be there, or be Abby Morgan. And we all know what happens to Abby Morgan. READ FULL STORY
