"This is unprecedented," a geek told us on hearing the news that Lucy Lawless is to guest-star on Agents of SHIELD season two. "Like all my Christmases come at once. Oh God you've put up a picture of her with Seven Of Nine off Voyager oh God OH GOD." He died later that day.
The bastards at Terminus have beaten him so bad, his moustache has slipped off his upper lip and into his mouth. Animals.
Tom Hardy is to play the role of Joey Tribbiani, as Matt LeBlanc is too busy working on his film project, Joey: Origins.
Courtney Love's new role as a nursery school teacher in Sons of Anarchy is to grow into one that dominates the show entirely whether anyone likes it or not, she has announced. "I'm planning to just photobomb all the scenes I'm not in," she said. "I'll do it so often that they'll either have to give up and use the footage anyway, or just fire me, in which case I'll complain endlessly in the press about how they victimised me. Don't underestimate the remarkable stamina I have where self-promotion is concerned."

This picture was shared by the official Mad Men Facebook page earlier today. Some of Don Draper's achievements as a father include:
- marrying his children's mother and parenting them through their formative years under a false identity
- sleeping with his daughter's teacher
- getting caught by his daughter in bed with his neighbour
- growing so bored at his daughter's birthday party that he gets drunk, goes out to pick up her cake and drives around with it for hours rather than going home.
Still, he did buy Sally some Beatles tickets. Happy Draper Day!
*An interview I did with Rik Mayall from last year that I never got round to transcribing and publishing anywhere. For some reason, now seems like an appropriate time...
Season three, episode three: Carol and Castor are in front of a board showing the network schedule, arguing about whether Matt LeBlanc's "Pucks" should get cancelled. In the 8.30 timeslot is a show called "Six of One", which is the title under which the Friends pilot was shot. And I thought this was going to be a quiet Saturday.
