News Round-up: Brett Larson, T.R. Knight, Cat Fit

Fox reporter Brett Larson in ALL MY CHILDREN
From reporter to maitre'd,' Fox 5 News Tech Reporter Brett Larson landed a walk-on role in ALL MY CHILDREN. Brett escorts actress Susan Lucci to her seat. But the normally one-take-wonder, needed to give it a second go.

More Damn Fine Coffee and Cherry Pie?
Kyle MacLachlan is interested in bringing back TWIN PEAKS as five-minute webisodes. These would, as has been reported, not involve original co-creator/brilliant-though-certified wackadoo David Lynch, who is busy meditating and creating music. But the other brilliant mind behind it, Mark Frost, has to be out there somewhere. MacLachlan knows it’s a “crazy idea” but he wants to do it.

The great disappearing TV theme song: iconic ditties are a dying art
"There is theme music for LOST, you know," says Steve Gelfand, a theme music expert who 25 years ago founded the Television Music Archives to help preserve and promote theme music. "But we only hear about two seconds of it. So we're not likely to remember it very well."

Still, says Gelfand, all is not lost. His problem with TV theme music over the last decade, he says, hasn't been too little. It's been too much. With cable, satellite and the Internet expanding the TV universe like a bag of microwave popcorn, we have a lot more music of all kinds on TV today than we did in the days of I LOVE LUCY.

T.R. Knight: "Leaving GREY'S Was Not an Easy Decision for Me"
"Leaving Grey's Anatomy was not an easy decision for me to make," Knight said in a statement on Friday. "I am extremely grateful to have had the opportunity to play this character [Dr. George O'Malley] and will miss my fellow cast and crew very much. I continue to wish them the very best, and wholeheartedly thank all of the fans who have supported me and the show with such passion and enthusiasm."

ATWT head writer Jean Passanante on the lack of cliffhangers and the new storytelling on the show
"There are certainly cliffhangers within every episode, so there aren't fewer cliffhangers. A show may end with the sense that something's resolved, but there's always a sense that there's something left to be resolved." Check out the July 6 issue of CBS Soaps in Depth for more.
