True! Back to the Future‘s Doc Brown has been cast as a musical hero of Walter’s who’s been in a nursing home and becomes the subject of a Fringe investigation. “Christopher plays Roscoe Joyce, a keyboardist for Walter’s favorite 1970’s band Violet Sedan Chair,” explains exec producer J.H. Wyman. Fellow EP Jeff Pinkner adds, “The lives of these two men, who have never met before, overlap in strange and unexpected ways.”

A Bones spin-off is in the works

While it’s true that series creator Hart Hanson is developing an offshoot that would revolve around the central character in Walter Sherman’s Locator novels, the new guy — a recluse who can basically find anything — will not be introduced in a December episode of Bones, sources confirm. My guess is we’ll meet him in January or February.

Shenae Grimes (Annie) is getting replaced on 90210

False. Grimes is staying put, but Annie has reason to worry. The show is getting ready to introduce the recurring role of Emily, Annie’s country bumpkin cousin who moves to Beverly Hills with one goal in mind: to steal her cuz’s life! In addition to going after all of Annie’s acting parts, Emily also makes a play for her BF Liam. Bottom line: The CW is rebooting All About Eve!

ABC has axed The Whole Truth

False. Yes, the Maura Tierney-Rob Morrow courtroom procedural is being preempted on Nov. 3 for some Robin Roberts country music special, but an ABC insider insists the show — which is still on the schedule next week — has not been canceled. Yet.
