Tonight's House Scoop!

This season's House has offered up character-centric episodes focusing on Dr. House and individual members of his team. In Monday's episode, titled "Wilson," House's best bud gets his turn.

"You see my assistant [whom] you've never met. You see the oncology floor. You see where I work," Robert Sean Leonard said of the upcoming episode revolving around his character. "I have my own patients and my own day that doesn't include House. So you basically follow Wilson around for a few days and see what his life is like."

In the episode, one of Wilson's old friends (The West Wing's Josh Malina) displays paralysis in his arm and enters Princeton-Plainsboro as a patient. Wilson takes the case but refuses to believe the patient's cancer has returned, so he works with the team to diagnose him with more hopeful results.

"I has some moral decisions to make throughout the show," says Leonard. "It's a personal case for me."

True Blood Scoop!

With True Blood starting production on its third season this week, the spoilers are starting to flow as freely as Type O-neg at Fangtasia! The biggie: Casting is now underway for a role that sounds suspiciously like it can only be that of Sam’s mother!

Debuting in episode 2, middle-aged Melinda Mickens, The Ausiello Files’ sources say, is just about the only character in history who lives in more trash than Oscar the Grouch. And since she and equally filthy hubby Joe Lee share the same surname as Tommy, the character this column’s already reported is Sam’s brother… well, you can do that math, can’t you?

The show is also on the hunt for a knockout to play Crystal Norris, a mysterious beauty who bewitches one of our alpha males. (Figuratively. Um, I think.) She’ll also make her first appearance in the second eppy.

But wait, there’s more…

In that same hour, we’ll flash back to a World War II werewolf dogfight, flash forward again to meet a werewolf biker who likes the look of Sookie’s kibbles and bits, and be treated to the spectacle of Tara smacking down a couple of rednecks who diss the recently deceased.

"24" UK Press Release!


When we last saw Jack Bauer (Golden Globe® and Emmy® winner Kiefer Sutherland), his life was hanging in the balance. But, true to form, the hardest man in television is back for another heart stopping, action-packed series of the award-winning US drama series 24. With a relocation to New York, the return of CTU and new exciting cast additions, this season looks set to follow Day 7 in being one of the best yet when it returns to Sky1 HD and Sky1 on Sunday 24 January.

At the start of 24’s new, eighth season, Bauer is hoping for a quiet life with his daughter Kim (Elisha Cuthbert, Captivity) and his granddaughter. However, a group of terrorists have other plans and an assassination plot against a visiting Middle Eastern leader Omar Hassan (Anil Kapoor, Slumdog Millionaire) is uncovered. It’s not long before Bauer is called upon to help prevent Hassan’s murder.

Kiefer Sutherland said: “Season 7 and 8…are really connected together. The storylines from Season 7 really do play all the way through into Season 8. The setup for [this season] is the most realistic political thing that I think we've ever done since we started the show. This season is more grounded in what possibly could happen. There's a sense of reality that almost brings it back to Season 1.”

CTU is back in action and based in New York, headed up by Special Agent Brian Hastings (Mykelti Williamson, Forrest Gump). He is joined by brainy bombshell Dana Walsh (Katee Sackhoff, Battlestar Galactica) and her fiancé, head of field operation Cole Ortiz (Freddie Prinze Jr, I Know What You Did Last Summer).

Returning for Day 8 are CTU devotee Chloe O’Brian (Mary Lynn Rajskub, Little Miss Sunshine), Renee Walker (Annie Wersching, General Hospital) and President Allison Taylor played by Cherry Jones (Ocean’s Twelve) fresh from her Emmy® win for her work on Day 7. Plus, villainous ex-president Charles Logan (Gregory Itzin, The Mentalist) is set to return when Taylor enlists him to assist with an escalating crisis. “The opportunity for these two remarkable actors to share the stage was simply too compelling to pass up,” said executive producer Howard Gordon of the unison of the current and previous presidents.

24 Day 8 looks set to add another enthralling, shock-filled chapter to the series when it launches with a double bill on January 24 at 9pm on Sky1 HD and Sky1.

Viewers can bring themselves up to date with a 24 Day 7 catch up, from Tuesday 29 December at 8am through to Wednesday 30 December at 8am.

The Mentalist Casting Scoop!

Meet the new boss on "The Mentalist."

Aunjanue Ellis has joined the cast of the sophomore CBS drama in a heavily recurring role.

She will play the beautiful but tough new head of the California Bureau of Investigation who is installed following the resignation of the unit's former chief, Virgil Minelli, played by Gregory Itzin. (Itzin recently signed on to return to "24," reprising his role as former President Charles Logan.)

She is brought in to restore discipline and morale to the division after the murder of three agents, including Agent Sam Bosco (Terry Kinney), and will be Agent Teresa Lisbon's (Robin Tunney) new supervisor.

Ellis' debut on "Mentalist" is tentatively slated for April.

The actress, who appeared in "The Taking of Pelham 1 2 3," recently co-starred on Broadway in Joe Turner's "Come and Gone" and wrapped the actioner "Game of Death." She is repped by ICM and TMT Entertainment.

Dexter Episode Details!

Episode 4x11 "Hello Dexter Morgan"

Dexter's worst fears have been realized. Because of Debra's unrelenting pursuit, Miami Metro is just one step away from discovering the identity of the Trinity Killer. And Dexter can't let that happen. Arthur's arrest would not only deprive Dexter of a satisfying kill, it would also expose the secret life Dexter's been leading in his pursuit of this monster. Dexter must take drastic action to buy himself time to deal with Trinity in his own fashion. Meanwhile, Rita decides to confide in Dexter, which doesn't go as well as she'd hoped. LaGuerta and Batista's breach of ethics paints them into a very tight corner. And Arthur, who still can't understand why Dexter didn't simply turn him in, begins his own bloody investigation into Kyle Butler.

Smallville Casting Scoop!

An Internet Movie Database listing revealing that not only has the character of Wesley Dodds, a.k.a. Sandman, been cast - we know the identity of the actor playing him.

Ken Lawson, who recently played the hotel manager in the Supernatural convention episode "The Real Ghostbusters," will be appearing and hopefully wearing the legendary gas mask


Watch "Riese, The Series" Now!

Riese is a world of moral ambiguity and political intrigue.

A decimated land populated by characters from dreams and nightmares. Loyalties are ever in question, suspicion in the minds of all. The realm, however, was not always so cruel. Everything began with a peaceful nation called Eleysia.

The Kingdom of the Wolf, Eleysia was once prosperous due largely to the influence of Empress Kara and Emperor Ulric. This all changed when a coup d’etat, orchestrated from the shadows by a religious cult, brought about a total regime change.

Taking the throne was Amara, the Empress’s cousin.
A power-hungry tyrant, Amara immediately utilized Eleysia’s wealth and power to begin colonizing the world, crushing nation after nation in order to unite the people under one banner. Even as she assaulted the world, an ominous, enigmatic group clearly wielded power over her. Called The Sect, they purported themselves to be the official religion of Eleysia, and began to spread alongside Eleysia’s borders.

Since the coup, the land has begun to die, resources are dwindling and compassion is fading. Humanity itself is seen as impure. People have grown restless, almost feral. Rituals and mythology have resurged, and the darker side of mankind has begun to reveal itself.

The true horror of the world is not in how it ends, but what will become of mankind as it fractures.And yet, despite the impending doom, a single beacon of light shines in Riese. A mysterious wanderer, she travels with her wolf Fenrir across this barren land. Branded as heretics by The Sect, Riese and Fenrir will pause to aid those in need as they travel, but they must evade capture at all costs. As she flees, she’ll piece together her past and her destiny, in a conflict that will hold the fate of this world in the balance - and the once peaceful kingdom of Eleysia will be the battlefield.

This is the world of Riese.

Heard about this web series from a friend and just now got around to catching the first two episodes. Just like "Sanctuary" originally ran online, "Riese, the Series" has thusfar two released episodes and will have a total of five. The official website below contains the actual episodes as well as tons of info, a forum, and gives release dates for the future ep's. Its pretty good but it definitely leaves you wanting to know more so far.

Bones Scoop!

Bones executive producers Hart Hanson, Stephen Nathan and story editor Dean Lopata invited me over to their offices on the Fox lot to play an old school video game they had designed for their Dec. 3

episode, "The Gamer in the Grease." Inspired by the documentary, The King of Kong, the episode finds Brennan (Emily Deschanel) and Booth (David Boreanaz) delving deep into the cutthroat world of competitive arcade gaming. I say "cutthroat" because the opening scene's discovery of a gaming champion's corpse is quite possibly the show's most gruesome image to date. Without spoling it for you, lets just say Brennan's disappointment that the body still contains its skin is short-lived.

The producers tell me that Fox asked them to conceive an episode that would help promote Twentieth Century Fox's holiday release, Avatar, a film set in a virtual reality world that co-stars Bones recurring player, Joel Moore (Colin Fisher) as an on-ship technician overseeing avatar transference. "The studio wanted us to do some kind of cross-over," explains Nathan. "So we designed a whole story that kicks off with Sweets (John Francis Daley) meeting a girl in a movie line."

The movie the characters are going to see, not surprisingly, is
Avatar. The episode finds characters playing 80's style arcade games. Getting the rights to established games like Pac Man and Donkey Kong, Hanson explains, "would have cost a fortune, so we had to design our own retro game that looks like it came out in the 80s."

The game they designed, Punky Pong, is so easy that a monkey can play it. Heck, even I managed a high score by blocking a steady flow of
bananas, mangos, pineapples and raspberries from sneaking past me. And I somehow was able to keep focused on the game despite Hanson's constant screaming in my ear, "Don't let the banana hit you!!!"

You'll be able to see (and play!) for yourself when the game is
posted on after the episode airs. And oh -- watch out for those bananas. They cause shrinkage.

Paying a visit to the clinic, Magnus and Will are surprised to meet the program’s director…none other than a disguised Nikola Tesla (JONATHAN YOUNG), one of the original Five.

Tesla portentously explains he has been working on a treatment that cures the teens of their addictions in merely a week. Magnus and Will know Tesla has an ulterior motive and press him to disclose the real purpose for the clinic. Unable to hold back his excitement, Tesla reveals he is actually turning his patients into Vampires.

Tesla’s treatment is designed to create a time-release of the Vampire gene, evolving his unsuspecting patients into Vampires over a 30-year period. But when one of his patients discovers the formula to speed up the process, they find themselves up against a powerful and determined group of new Vampires.

With the Abnormal nowhere to be found, Magnus concludes it has made its getaway into the depths of the water. But their solitude doesn’t last long. Not only does the Abnormal return, it’s even angrier than before. And Magnus and Will quickly learn they must escape or become its next victim.

Heroes Sneak Peek!


Question: There’s a clip making the rounds from the Christmas dinner scene on the Dec. 10 episode of Bones where people are talking about a kiss. What do you know about it? Is it a Booth/Brennan kiss? —Penelope
Ausiello: That’s a really good question. It’s so good that I’m not even going to try to answer it myself. “The Christmas episode is special — it’s Christmas after all,” responds exec producer Stephen Nathan. “But a kiss? With all of the squints and family there? That seems a bit too forward for Brennan and Booth, doesn’t it?” Damn you and your trick questions, Nathan!

Question: I need to know if there is still hope for House and Cuddy this season. —Jaden
Ausiello: There’s still hope. And that’s all you’re getting out of me.

Question: I’m feeling pretty down about House and Cuddy these days. Any chance there is even a tiny bit of good news ahead for Huddy fans? —Megan
Ausiello: There is good news ahead. And that’s all you’re getting out of me.

Question: Any Dollhouse news? We only have nine episodes left! —Lindsey
Ausiello: I better get this out there quick then! English actor Adam Godley (The X-Files: I Want to Believe) has been cast as Clyde, a genius who holds secrets to the dollhouse. The role is potentially recurring. Or as potentially recurring as one can be when the show only has nine episodes left. Speaking of which, here’s a handy clip-n-save rundown of how D’house’s remaining episodes will be burned off air.

Dec. 4: two episodes
Dec. 11: two episodes
Dec 18: two episodes
Jan 8: one episode
Jan 15: one episode
Jan 22: one episode (series finale)

Question: Is Warrior Angel really going to be a love interest for Chloe on Smallville? —Claire
Ausiello: He is, but per exec producer Brian Petersen, “There’s a wink behind it.” And what about a real, non-winky love interest? “I have promised that we’re going to give Chloe a relationship this year, and rest-assured, that was not just a tease. She will have a relationship this year.” Does this guy have a name? Teases BP: “We’ll know [who he is] in ‘Warrior.’”

Question: Will we be meeting any other Justice Society members in Smallville: Absolute Justice other than Hawkman, Dr. Fate and Stargirl? —Mike
Ausiello: Yes. According to e.p. Brian Petersen, “we will see glimpses of” several others. Guesses? Head to the comments!

Question: Thanks for all of the great news about Chuck and Lost. All of this plus you appreciate Santa Barbara, Smurfs, and constantly give incredible scoop. Thanks so much for being you. Any chance you have White Collar scoop? —Jennifer
Ausiello: After all that ass-kissing you just did? You bet I do. In the upcoming Dec. 4 midseason finale, our partners in crime-solving are called onto the case of a missing diamond, only to find Neal at the top of the list of suspects. The winsome swindler tries to clear his name and, in a shocking reveal, finds out he’s not the only one that’s been good at lying. Now tell me what else you like about me.

Question: Glee! Scoop! Now! Thanks! —Elizabeth
Ausiello: Coming! Right! Up! In next Wednesday’s eppy, Will gets in a bind when some surprising news at home causes him to accidentally disqualify the New Directions from Sectionals. Of course, the following episode is titled “Sectionals,” so you can probably figure out whether or not it works itself out. You can, right?

Question: I need Glee scoops! I’m hungry for some info on upcoming couples! —Connor
Ausiello: Brace yourself, ’cause Mark Salling (a.k.a. Puck) says he’s heard “talk” of some surprising romantic pairings. “I have read posts and stories about all kinds of pairings fans are hoping will happen on the show,” he says. “For instance, people have been asking for a Mercedes-Puck hookup. I hear people want Puck and Artie because they want to Partie. And Finn and Puck. I think that one is pretty popular in certain neighborhoods. I can’t say never, but Puck is such a dude that I am not sure how that one would ever come to pass. Maybe a dream sequence of Kurt’s?” Of those options, I think I’m kind of loving the idea of a Partie. Anyone want to join me?

Question: Any scoop on what’s coming up for Glee’s Puck in the near future? —Rachel
Ausiello: Mark Salling would like to see his alter ego grow up a little — emphasis on a little. “Hopefully, Puck will continue to develop and mature,” he says. “I think he is trying to figure out how to do the right thing. He was a total douche in the beginning of the show and he has worked himself up to half-a-douche status. I never want him to be fully cured of his douchiness, though, because that would be no fun to play. I like him being a little mean and rebellious.”

Question: Please tell me that Monk will finally figure out who murdered his beloved Trudy by the end of the series. —Rebecca
Ausiello: Yes, he will find out. But the identity of her killer is only half the story. In this Friday’s penultimate episode, we’ll discover that her death was tied to a bombshell secret. That secret will be revealed in the series finale on Dec. 4.

Question: Is there any further scoop you can give on the Monk finale? Will Sharona be in it? —Cassie
Ausiello: She’s not physically in it. But she’s very much a part of it.

Question: Now that it’s returning in January, Chuck me, spoiler God! —Scott
Ausiello: Chuck co-creator Chris Fedak confirms that Anna Wu will be MIA during season 3’s first 13 episodes, but there’s a chance she could pop up in the last six. “We’re still [writing the last] six episodes, so I don’t have anything first on that,” he says. “But I would love for Anna to come back.” Fedak adds that Julia’s absence at Buy More will be referenced early in the season.

Question: There’s a $5 tuna foot-long with you and Mister Scooch’s names on it if you can give me any Chuck updates. —Jen
Ausiello: Can you make my half a veggie? If so, you’ve got a deal. Chris Fedak says the six additional episodes that NBC recently tacked on to Chuck’s season 3 total created an interesting storytelling challenge. “[We were faced with] the problem of either expanding the story we’re telling or taking the story and telling it more slowly. And what we essentially decided to do was tell more story. So we’re looking at the six episodes that have been added on as Chuck season 3.2.”

Question: Can we get more info about who House will get a job for at Princeton-Plainsboro? —Abby
Ausiello: I have written about this person in the past two weeks.

Question: Darling, you’re viciously ignoring a fabulous show — Dexter! Care to redeem your fabulous self and dish? —Tina
Ausiello: Are you channeling Miss Piggy or Alexis Carrington? Either way, I like it! Re: Dexter, I hear there’s a big breakup coming.

White Collar Interview!

Any chance we'll see a Wilson-Cuddy hookup on House? — Allison
MICKEY: I suppose this is a natural progression after we all lived through Huddy, but Robert Sean Leonard disabused us of that notion when we asked. "I think [Wilson] is a dark guy. He has three ex-wives, he lives alone, deals with death every day and his best friend is House," he says. "So when I think about him with Cuddy, it doesn't work." Fine, so then maybe there's someone else out there for him? Not for now, says Leonard. He'll just have to content himself with a domestic partner (as in roommate) in House. They'll be going apartment-hunting together soon.

The sexual tension between Castle and Beckett is starting to heat up. When are these two going to hook up already? — Mike
ADAM: Not any time soon, I'm afraid. The next obstacle will be a guest-starring Alyssa Milano, who plays Castle's one that got away. "A bridesmaid is murdered at a wedding, and Castle shows up on the scene where his old flame is the bride," creator Andrew W. Marlowe tells me. "It sets off a story about doubt and second chances, which creates an interesting love triangle for the episode." The good news: Marlowe knows what you want. "We always want to play fair with the audience... but you have to handle it carefully. Our intent is to continue to mine the fun of what we have right now."

Now that we know Val is pregnant with Ryan's baby on V, does that rule out Tyler and Lisa from procreating as well? — Cecily
MICKEY: You can't rule anything out! Just listen to what Laura Vandervoort told us: "Val's going to be the first one to have an alien baby, but I don't know if the baby is going to survive or something's going to happen." Did you notice the emphasis she placed on first? We did.

Any word on Naveen Andrews returning to Lost? — Maureen
MICKEY: There's been no word on Andrews heading back to Hawaii just yet (hmmm...), but I have heard more about his SVU episode. It also features guest-starring gigs from Sarah Paulson (Studio 60 on the Sunset Strip) and Valerie Cruz (who played Isabel on True Blood). I'm hearing the role is quite a departure for Andrews, and that it's an effort to attract the attention of casting agents for post-Lost work.

Got any Heroes scoop? — Justin
ADAM: Todd Stashwick (The Riches) kicks off his guest role in Monday's episode. He plays Eli, who fills the void as Samuel's right-hand man now that Edgar (Ray Park) has split from the carnival. Also, expect to see a lot of Eli: He has the ability to replicate.

With V on hiatus, will Laura Vandervoort return to Smallville for an episode or two? — Jackie
ADAM: No one would love to see it more than me, Jackie. Well, OK, maybe the chatty Laura Vandervoort, who sadly informed us that the outlook's not so good right now. "[The producers] had to get rid of my story line because it just didn't fit into the Lois-and-Clark direction that they were heading. If Super Girl is hanging out, she can save everyone as well." The good news: If the writers ever see fit to release Kara from Kandor, Vandervoort is in.

Dexter has gotten so good! What else is coming up? — Gene
ADAM: It will be tough to top the reveal that Christine is Trinity's daughter, but let me try. It seems Frank Lundy missed some clues when he decided to call his pet serial killer Trinity. Dexter will soon discover that Trinity's kill cycle actually contains four victims.

"V" Scoop!

The Visitors are leaving for a while. (You know what they say about guests and fish stinking after three days.) Tonight is the last new episode of V's premiere pod of episodes, and it's a doozy. There are major reveals about the future (think circle-of-life type stuff), someone gets tortured to death, we learn more about the so-called "fifth column," we learn that the Vs are out to get us using a method that would make Bill Maher nod and go "Toldya!," and, oh yeah, Lisa (Laura Vandervoort) brings Tyler (Logan Huffman) home to meet her "mother." Eek!

What's to come after all of tonight's alien madness is said and done? We caught up with superfoxy alien babe Morena Baccarin for an exclusive chat, and she hinted that things (maybe even big romantic things) are heating up for Anna. Here's what we learned:

OK, what is up with your and Scott Wolf's characters?
The relationship is definitely going to keep going in whatever strange direction it's going now. You don't really know if they're going to fight each other, love each other, or if she's going to eat him. You don't know what's going to happen! It gets really interesting in the episode that comes out on Tuesday. Something happens to his character that makes him very dependent on us. He has to sort of battle with his will to see what he's going to do. It's a very interesting dynamic.

Did you watch the original V to research your role at all, or did you steer clear from it?
I didn't watch the original...I had seen it when I was really little, so I remember it and I remember the creepy factor, but I haven't watched it since. I think I won't, because I want to create this character on my own.

Now that we're hooked, you're taking a break from filming…
Yes! It's torturous isn't it? It's torturous for me too. I really want to know what happens. We start back up in January, so just right after the holidays.

Does it make you nervous that you have several months of hiatus? Or do you think the suspense will help the show in the end?
I think it will help it. When people see the next episode, they're definitely coming back for more!

House Scoop!

It took ‘em long enough, but I suspect it’s gonna prove worth the wait: House’s keepers are giving Lisa Edelstein’s Cuddy her own Very Special Episode, to air on Feb. 8. (That’s two weeks before my birthday. Coincidence? I think not.) And in honor of, well, the honor, I got her on the horn yesterday to discuss exposing more than her character’s emotions (nudity!), her unpopular love interest (Lucas!), the future of Huddy (her fingers are crossed!), and more. As always, on screen and off, she didn’t disappoint. (Warning: Portions of the following Q&A are NSFW.)

As I understand it, this episode on Feb. 8 is like a day in the life of Cuddy, right?
LISA EDELSTEIN: Yes. What’s interesting about it is it lets you know what her world is like when you don’t see her. When House does what he does. You see everything she has to deal with, and you get a better understanding of where she’s coming from.

You’ve been featured heavily in House episodes before. What’s different about this one?
EDELSTEIN: Every other line [of dialogue] is mine. [Laughs]

You’re into the second day of shooting the episode. Tired yet?
EDELSTEIN: It’s exhausting, but [big episodes like this don't happen] that often so I can really enjoy it. [Laughs] It’s so much fun. I love my job. It’s also fun because I get to participate a little bit more in the episode in terms of where my character’s coming from, what’s going on, if there’s a dialogue thing that I have an issue with… I get to creatively participate a little more.

How did you find out this big episode was coming your way?
EDELSTEIN: I found out a couple weeks ago. They told me, “Big Cuddy episode coming up!” And I went, “Okay!,” because I don’t always know what that means. Sometimes that means I have four scenes. [Laughs] Or I have to take my clothes off.

Or you’re making out with Hugh Laurie.
EDELSTEIN: [Laughs] Actually, in this one I kind of do all of it. There’s some sexual activity, there’s some partial nudity… The writer, Tommy Moran, said he couldn’t imagine writing an episode without having me take a shower.

Unfortunately for Huddy fans, I hear it’s Lucas, not House, you’re taking a shower with.
EDELSTEIN: You know, we all have to go through things that we have to go through in life. And I think Cuddy is trying to explore having a relationship that would be considered normal. I myself have done this. It doesn’t work. But you have to try. I don’t know what their future plans are for Cuddy and Lucas, but I know from my own experience that when you have really bad taste in men, sometimes you just go, “Oh, Okay, this is the guy that somebody else would date. So I’m going to see how that flies.”

Is there anything else drawing her to Lucas?
EDELSTEIN: He’s well hung.

And this is why I love interviewing you
EDELSTEIN: He’s really well hung. [Laughs]

But that can only last so long. The novelty is going to wear off.
EDELSTEIN: It’s true. The novelty wears off. And then you get a little vaginal rejuvenation and you move on. [Laughs] Thank God we’re not doing this interview on camera.

Has the cast been treating you differently this week? Are they fetching coffee for you?
EDELSTEIN: I make them hand-wash my underwear in the morning. I don’t have time to do it myself — I have lines [to memorize], people! No, Hugh has been wonderful. He left me a bouquet of flowers and a congratulations note. And one of our producers, Greg Yaitanes, did the same. My trailer looks like it’s opening night. It was really sweet. It made me feel really good. I’m really excited about it. I love that they’re giving me the opportunity to play like this and just kind of flex my muscles a little bit.

You’re getting a taste of the kind of workload Hugh has to endure every week.
EDELSTEIN: I never doubted what Hugh was going through every week. You get up at 4 a.m. on Monday, you work 14 hours every day, and you have no life basically. But it’s a hell of a lot better than working in a coal mine. I don’t think Hugh ever forgets his good fortune, and I certainly don’t.

It’s time now for the requisite Huddy question. Is there any hope for them?
EDELSTEIN: Their timing just really sucks. As soon as he was emotionally prepared to give [a relationship] a shot, she kind of gave up. But I’m rooting for them.

When the day comes that they actually make a go of it, what else will we have to talk about?
EDELSTEIN: It’s like losing your virginity. After that, you’re just dirty. [Laughs] You’re just dirty and used.
