Question: In honor of Neil Patrick Harris being cast in the Smurfs movie, you should give us some big scoop. It’s what the Smurfs would want. —Riina
Ausiello:
Actually, I just conducted a straw poll in Smurf Village and turns out what the Smurfs really wanted was me, not NPH. All kidding aside, I really did conduct a poll. And I won. By a landslide. Seriously. Moving on… here’s your big scoop: My magazine column is movin’ on up to the News & Notes section beginning with this week’s issue (on sale Friday). Someone please start a congratulatory thread in the comments section so I don’t have to.

Question: I heard Desperate Housewives is casting a new vixen to replace Nicolette Sheridan. Any idea whom they’re looking at to play her? —Scotty
Ausiello:
You’re assuming the role is female. Speaking of Housewives, MAJOR SPOILER ALERT. READ FULL STORY

'Lost' execs 'spoil' final episodes at TV Fest '10

lost-paley-eventEntertainment Weekly intern Vlada Gelman is covering the Paley Fest for The Ausiello Files. Here’s her report from last night’s sold-out Lost panel.

Status Check: The Lost writers are in the process of breaking the series finale, which will be penned by Damon Lindelof and  Carlton Cuse and directed by Jack Bender. The penultimate episode will be written by producer/writers (and fellow panelists) Elizabeth Sarnoff, Eddy Kitsis and Adam Horowitz. Meanwhile, on the island, Bender has just wrapped episode 14 and is currently shooting 15.

It’s like Top Chef: No, seriously. Lindelof, who said they’re big fans of the Bravo reality series, likened writing the show to the Top Chef contestants having to figure out what to use after they’ve grabbed a bunch of ingredients in a hurry. He also described Lost as “the iceberg above the water.” Sometimes the writers want to explore the iceberg below the water, but aside from leaving room to discover small character moments, there are no big changes to the overall game.

Question: Happy belated birthday! My gift to you comes in the form of a question: Got any NCIS scoop? —Joel
Ausiello:
You shouldn’t have. No. Really. You shouldn’t have. But since you did, I can exclusively confirm that Rena Sofer’s feisty legal eagle — who returns in Tuesday’s episode — will be back for multiple episodes in May and “set in motion a chain of events that forces Gibbs (Mark Harmon) to make a life-changing decision,” reveals exec producer Shane Brennan. And not just any life-changing decision, either. One, he says “that will impact every member of his team.”

Question: I’ll send you some birthday cake if you give me some Supernatural scoop about the 100th episode. —Annie
Ausiello:
In the milestone episode, airing April 15, “a very important character will sacrifice themselves in a suicide mission,” reveals exec producer Sera Gamble. “We definitely kept in mind that this was [an important] episode. We wanted to deliver something with real scope; it’s about the Archangel Michael. Crises will come to a head for Dean and Castiel. And you’ll see characters you never thought you’d see again.” Here’s the pan I want you to use for my cake. READ FULL STORY

Question: You’re blaming the late arrival of Ask Ausiello on the blizzard? Lame. But I’ll forgive you if you give me a really juicy Lost spoiler. —Jesse
Ausiello:
Would you believe me if I told you my laptop got stuck in a 5-foot snowdrift? No? Okay, I’ll think of something else. In the meantime, here’s your juicy Lost spoiler: Someone has a kid in their flash-sideways. Guesses? Head to the comments!

Question: What can you tell me about Libby’s Lost return? —Joe
Ausiello:
I can’t tell you very much. Cynthia Watros, however, describes her onscreen reunion with Jorge Garcia as “so sweet and honest. And I think, hopefully, when people see our scenes that they’ll get that feeling, too. [Libby and Hurley] are so incredibly real with each other. I was really grateful that I got to play those scenes and Libby got to sort of express herself in ways that she hasn’t been able to.” READ FULL STORY

'Lost' actors: What will be next for Terry O'Quinn and Josh Holloway?

The true sign of an ending show is when its stars book other gigs — but it’s unlikely fans will see a flurry of casting headlines involving the highly-sought after actors of ABC’s Lost. Though it was reported today that Daniel Dae Kim will play one of the leads in the CBS pilot Hawaii Five-0, it may be months before we hear whether the Emmy-winning Terry O’Quinn (Locke) or Josh Holloway (Sawyer) has been recruited to play the leads in other fall projects. Laments one Hollywood talent agent, “They all shoot through April, so doing a pilot will be difficult for all of them. These producers make it difficult on everyone in working out conflicts.” CBS was able to snag Kim (Jin) because Five-0 will film on the big island, where Lost is shot. He’ll play Detective Chin Ho Kelly in the update of the ’60s cop drama (the role of Detective Steve McGarrett has not yet been cast).

But there are at least two Lost actors who won’t be sending out resume photos this spring – if ever. Matthew Fox (Jack) told reporters at the show’s annual Sunset on the Beach premiere last month that he either wants to do film or “something else entirely.” Evangeline Lilly (Kate) also told E Online that she wants to bug out of TV and do charity work in Rwanda. “I’m not passionate about acting the way you probably should be to call yourself an actor,” she told E Online’s Kristin Dos Santos. “I want to have some quiet space … drop off the radar a little bit and enjoy a little bit of normalcy again.”

'House' exclusive: 'Lost' alum Cynthia Watros checks in as [major spoiler alert]!

Question: How about you try something new in Ask Ausiello this week and talk about Lost. Remember that show? —Eddie
Ausiello:
Hmmm… I think that’s the show I just got some exclusive casting news on. According to a well-placed insider, Fisher Stevens will resurface this season as the late George Minkowski. That’s the show you’re talking about, right?

Question: I’m literally dying for True Blood news. Please save me from dying a slow, painful death. —Demi
Ausiello:
Your life-saving scoop has arrived! It’ll take three villains to replace last season’s one Big Bad, Maryann. “We have a triumvirate of evil this season,” reveals exec producer Alan Ball. “I’m talking about Franklin Mott, Russell Edgington, and Debbie Pelt. They are all bad to the bone. They’re not just crazy, they’re evil.” Speaking of the yet-to-be-cast Debbie Pelt, Ball tells me that Alcide’s psycho ex will actually have a bigger role than first thought. “We actually beefed up Debbie,” he says. “She’s going to be in more episodes, so maybe that will have an impact on [what actress] we can get for her, which is a big question right now.” READ FULL STORY

Question: The latest we’ve heard about Tony and Ziva on NCIS is Shane Brennan stating that their relationship will remain status quo. Please tell me they’re not ending Tiva? —Jamie
Ausiello:
Strange. That seems to contradict what I’m hearing. According to my hairy NCIS mole, the Jan. 26 episode finds Tony and Ziva hopping a plane to the City of Love. That’s right, Tiva takes on Paris! And would you believe the hotel screws up their reservation and they end up sharing a room together? What are the odds?!

Question: Your Bones scoop last week was crap. The promos already gave away Booth’s nude scene. Got any legitimate scoop? —Barry
Ausiello:
When the show returns on Jan. 14, someone must contend with a positive pregnancy test. Legitimate enough for you?! READ FULL STORY

Question: Stop beating around the bush about Mark and Addison. What exactly goes on between them during the Grey’s Anatomy/Private Practice crossover next month? —Carrie
Ausiello:
Ever heard of the phrase, “Knocking boots ’til the cows come home”?

Question: Can we get some Mark and Lexie scoop? Seriously, we’ve heard everything about everyone on Grey’s except them. —Sophie
Ausiello:
Ever heard of the phrase, “Deep doo-doo”? That’s pretty much where their relationship is headed. Let’s just say Mark may not be the only one doing a little two-timing in the Jan. 14 crossover. READ FULL STORY

This just in: And the 'Lost' premiere date is...

I’ve got a new numbers-related Lost mystery for ya. Anyone know what 02022010 means? I do — it’s the show’s return date!

ABC just confirmed that Lost will kick off its sixth and final season with a two-hour premiere on Tuesday, Feb. 2 from 9-11 pm. The requisite recap special will start things off at 8 pm. The following week, Lost will settle into its regular Tuesday-9 pm perch.

The ABC press release announcing Lost‘s return date also revealed who among the show’s cast will receive full-time, series-regular billing in season 6. And the winners are… READ FULL STORY

Question: Is Izzie really pregnant on Grey’s Anatomy? —Elle
Ausiello:
I’ll say this: ABC’s promo gurus are very sneaky! While we’re on the subject of Katherine Heigl, sources confirm to me exclusively that she’s taking another leave of absence from Grey’s — but this time her reasons are personal, not professional. Heigl will be going on a belated maternity leave to spend some QT with new daughter Naleigh. As a result, Izzie will be MIA for another string of episodes (most likely in early 2010.)

Question: Please tell me something will happen soon on Grey’s Anatomy that will make me stop hating the Chief! —Ann
Ausiello:
Would the sight of him falling off the wagon do the trick? ‘Cause that’s what happens at the end of this week’s episode.

Question: I need a Puck-centric Glee scoop! —Tammy
Ausiello:
Next week, he spills his guts to someone that he’s the father of Quinn’s baby.  And she doesn’t respond the way he expected. READ FULL STORY
