  • They’ve also green-lit a US version of Footballers’ Wives. Bryan Singer (exec producer of House and director of Superman Returns, The Usual Suspects and X-Men) of all people might direct the pilot.
  • There are a few spoilers on this week’s Ask Auriello, but the only really interesting thing is that David Carradine is to guest star on Criminal Minds. I watched last week’s: what do people see in it, for heaven’s sake?
