Morning News: October 27, 2011

Its a slow news day today ...

1.  Casting News! Jonathan Groff is returning to Glee in his role as Jesse St. James.  Christina Milian (a "singer" that referenes her name in her songs, I think) is joining NBC's The Voice for its second season. She will be a backstage ... person of sorts. Gilbert Gottferied (the voice of the bird on Cyberchase; former AFLAC duck; the bird in Disney's Aladdin - what is with him and the fowl?) is coming to Law & Order: SVU for a maybe recurring role as an IT guy. ooook. Jennifer Coolidge is joining 2 Broke Girls.  Cougar Town is bring back most of the Scrubs cast for some overlapping reunion scenes.  Each of Zach Braff (JD), Robert Maschio (The Todd!), Sarah Chalke (Elliot), Ken Jenkins (Dr. Kelso) and Sam Lloyd (Ted) will join series regular Christa Miller (who played Jordan on Scrubs) and Scrubs and Cougar Town creator Bill Lawrence (also Miller's husband) at some point during the season.  Richard Schiff (the awesome Toby from the awesome West Wing) will join Once Upon a Time as Snow White's dad. LOVE IT!

2.  TV Tonight!  The World Series makes up last night's rainout with Game 6 tonight.  Beavis and Butthead return to MTV at 10pm.  ABC has It’s the Great Pumpkin, Charlie Brown! Lifetime has Project Runway's finale. NBC has Halloween episodes from Community, Parks and Rec and The Office.  CBS and ABC ramp up the drama with newepisodes of Person of Interest and Grey's Anatomy!

3.  Actor/Comedian Patrice O'Neal suffered a stroke sometime last week.  Mainstream TV viewers will know him as the warehouse worker that Kelly would refer to as "walrus" from time to time.  Patrice was also part of last month's Roast of Charlie Sheen and was a regular on the Opie and Anthony Morning Show (airing on Sirius/XM). We wish him the best for a speedy recovery. Patrice is one funny dude.

4.  PBS is kicking off the iDocumentaries on the life and times of Steve Jobs, the co-founder of Apple who recently passed away. The iDocumentary will air on November 2 and will be called, Steve Jobs — One Last Thing.
