Posted on

Bishoptobolowskywarren_lYou’re busy. I’m busier. So how about we dispense with the formal introduction and just cut straight to the scoop.

•    Nip/Tuck: The FX drama has sewn up Desperate Housewives alum Kiersten Warren to play what promises to be one of McNamara-Troy’s more memorable patients yet: A thirtysomething stripper with breasts the size of watermelons. And that’s not her only quirk. The self-professed freak of nature — whose professional name is Jenny Juggs — also has severe anger issues. I’ve got two words for you: Weaponized G-cups!

•    Glee: Kristen Bell’s ill-fated Heroes daddy, Stephen Tobolowsky, has joined the cast of Fox’s upcoming musicomedy. Produced by Ryan Murphy, Glee centers on a Spanish teacher (Broadway star Matthew Morrison) tasked with taking over a high school glee club. Tobolowsky plays a fellow teacher at the school.

•    Law & Order: SVU: She’s back! As my buddies over at TVGuide.com first gloated reported earlier this week, SVU has booked ex-Gilmore Girls matriarch Kelly Bishop to play a defense attorney representing Brenda Blethyn in an episode to air Dec. 2. Clea Duvall and Mike Farrell also appear in the must-see episode.

•    30 Rock: Salma Hayek’s soon-to-be-introduced character is getting some roots. The Emmy-winning satire is casting the role of Concepcion, the 70ish grandmother of Hayek’s Elisa. Word is Gram doesn’t exactly hit it off with her granddaughter’s new lover, Jack (Alec Baldwin).
