'Psych' star James Roday talks 'Twin Peaks' episode, and the one cameo you won't see

psychImage Credit: Alan Zenuk/USA Network[Minor SPOILER ALERT] The body of a young girl wrapped in plastic makes a woman scream a few minutes into tonight’s supersized episode of Psych, an homage to Twin Peaks. The moment is rather dark in tone, but Peaks fans won’t be able to subdue their smirk of recognition during the scene. And there’s more where that came from: The episode is so packed with nods to the cult series that it runs almost eight minutes longer than the typical episode. (And an additional six minutes will be added to the director’s cut on the show’s season 5 DVD.) Last week, star James Roday took a break from his Las Vegas vacation to give EW the scoop about “Dual Spires,” including a confession about the one Peaks person he couldn’t bring himself to ask for a cameo.

ENTERTAINMENT WEEKLY: How’s Vegas treating you?
JAMES RODAY: Vegas is good. Vegas is good.

So it’s being kind?
So far it has been kind. I have to get through 48 more hours so that may change. But right now my head’s above water.

That’s always good news.
Yeah.

So I wanted to talk to you about the episode that some insiders are calling your baby, “Dual Spires.”
Full head of hair. It came out with a full head of hair.

So, tell me, how did you get the idea for a Twin Peaks homage and why did now seem like a good time?
Well, Twin Peaks is my favorite show of all time. This is the 20th anniversary of when it came on the air, and they put out their big gold box of DVDs with tons of extra stuff on it this year. So it did seem like if we were ever going to do it, this was the time to do it. I’ve actually been pushing [for it] since season 1. So it was sort of fortuitous that it took four years for it to actually come to fruition because now we can sort of piggyback on the fact that people are talking about Twin Peaks because of the 20th anniversary.

OLIVIA PHONES HOME ON ‘FRINGE’
If you thought the Altivia stuff so far was as tense as it could get, wait until you see the Dec. 2 episode. I promise it will knock you (and Altyou) on your butt in the first minutes of the episode and keep you there the entire hour. The tension begins with Peter getting a message relayed to him from Olivia. The question is: Does he believe it? Should he? Meanwhile, a phrase Olivia once told Peter will play a huge part in this episode, and there’s a blink-and-you’ll miss it tender moment between Peter and Walter. Speaking of, Walter introduces us to the term “vagenda” (use your imagination), and we learn of a new (old) device that has the ability to communicate with the other side. Most importantly, to answer a question posed to us by Twitter pal @val04, those of you hoping for Olivia’s return to our world (erm, everyone) should tune in to this episode. Just sayin’.

'Psych' season 6 scoop: Vampire, musical episodes in the works!

Psych-Dule-HillImage Credit: Williams + Hirakawa/USAYou haven’t even seen Psych‘s highly anticipated Twin Peaks homage episode yet (Dec. 1, hurry the hell up!), but the show is already looking to season 6. Oh, the perks of early renewal.

Series star James Roday (who penned the upcoming Peaks tribute and last season’s Hitchcock-inspired hour) told EW exclusively that the show has plans for a vampire-themed episode, a musical, and a nod to the greatest baseball movies of the past.

“We’re going to try to come up with something that feels relatively fresh because there’s already spoofs on spoofs on spoofs at this point,” he said of their fangy aspirations. “But if we got to the end of the run on the show and had never done anything with vampires, I certainly would regret it.”

The vampire spoof would likely air “relatively early in the season,” with the others to follow.

What say you, Psych-Os? Like what you’re hearing? And who wants to take the bet that Gus will be the recipient of the inevitable “There’s no crying in baseball” line?

Ausiello: Let me see if I can peel back the thick layer of denial long enough to type this next sentence: My last day at EW is this Friday.

Question: Any information on when Olivia Wilde is returning to House? —Christine
Ausiello: Probably not until spring. You’ll be happy to know that her temporary replacement, Amber Tamblyn, makes a positive first impression in her Nov. 8 debut. As you would expect, her character — supersmart and moralistic med student Martha M. Masters — gets quite a hazing from House‘s boys club. We’ll soon discover that a member of said club shares a past with House‘s “immutable obstacle,” as Dr. Crankenstein calls her. Other colorful nicknames assigned to the newbie on her first day of work include:

* The Internet with breasts
* Small Wonder
* The love child of Einstein and Mary Poppins
* The Bunny
* Pippy Long Division

Question: House scoop? —Jennifer
Ausiello: House pink-slips a member of his team during November sweeps. Not once, not twice, but three times. Also, three major characters do some jail time. READ FULL STORY

Question: Any scoop on the new season of Torchwood? —Craig
Ausiello:
Starz wasn’t kidding when it said the new season would be more global in scope. I’m hearing the show will shoot a chunk of the season on location in Los Angeles. Captain Jack’s going Hollywood!

Question: Word on the street is that House started filming its seventh season on June 14. Other word on the street is you want to be voted Sexiest Celeb Vegetarian of 2010. If you can give me some scoop about the former, I might just help you out with the latter. —Janine
Ausiello: You’ve got yourself a deal. Unconfirmed buzz suggests that Huddy fans will be in a state of continuous orgasm throughout House‘s season premiere this fall.

Someone please start a congratulatory thread in the comments section so I don’t have to.

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.”

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.

Question: How about kicking off the New Year with a House scoop? —Christopher
Ausiello:
I’m hearing something about a marriage proposal coming in the second half of the season. Also, remember House’s loony bin lay, Lydia? There’s buzz she may get a shout-out in the upcoming episode directed by Hugh Laurie. Let’s hope Cuddy isn’t within earshot!

Question: When Glee returns in April, will the storylines continue as if no time had elapsed, or will it be four months later? —Jenn

It’s not really specified. But football season is over, so you do the math (and get back to me with the results). READ FULL STORY

Bon Jovi + 'Burn Notice' + 'Psych' = 'Super' new USA spot

Planning to watch the premiere of USA Network’s White Collar tonight? Word of advice: Don’t fast-forward through the commercials — particularly if you’re a Bon Jovi fan. At some point during the show’s 72-minute episode (beginning at 10 pm/ET), the network will premiere the “Superman Tonight” track from Bon Jovi’s upcoming album The Circle over a nifty new character brand promo starring such USA MVPs as Jeffrey Donovan, Gabrielle Anwar, James Roday, Dule Hill, and Jeff Goldblum. This just in: An exclusive first look at the nifty spot is after the jump! (But you should still watch the commercials tonight. And then immediately go buy all the products advertised. If you don’t, the TV business may die and no one wants that.) READ FULL STORY
