NEWS ROUNDUP: Missouri Radio Host Plays Franco Model/Victim On GH, Jane Lynch Memoir

Missouri City man and radio host Michael Garfield plays dead on GENERAL HOSPITAL
In the story arc that begins next week, Franco reprises his role as an eccentric killer who is also named Franco. Garfield, 46, plays a model that Franco photographs in his studio.

"He's starting to take pictures of me in his crazy studio, in a dead position," Garfield said. "So I am his model-slash-body that he ultimately kills... he and I have a little confrontation, needless to say. It was a long day for someone with five lines," Garfield said, though he says he expected the shoot to involve a lot of "hurry up and wait."

He also found himself surprised by the strict division of labor on the set.

"It's interesting how the unions work," he said. "A wardrobe person is not allowed to touch a prop on the set. A prop person is not allowed to fix your tie."

GLEE's Cory Monteith says working with Ryan Murphy is 'awesome'
"It's not true. You know, when Season 1 came about, we were very fortunate the way the press took us in. Season 2 rolled around and it's the exact opposite. There's not a riff between anyone."

The Juiciest Tidbits from Jane Lynch’s New Memoir
On entering into her first gay relationship: “Our relationship proceeded as smoothly as you’d expect between a teacher and a self-hating student who’s having her first-ever homosexual experience. I pulled her close, then pushed her away, then threw myself at her, then despised myself for doing it. I couldn’t stand to see her, and I couldn’t stand not to see her. I was tormented, guilt-ridden, ashamed… and out-of-my-mind excited. And I had no clue how to handle any one of these emotions, much less all of them together.”

Michael J. Fox Returning For Multiple Episodes of THE GOOD WIFE

TRUE BLOOD scoop: Who's coming to Bon Temps in season 5?
“There will be a very significant, strong, mysterious woman at the center of one of our main stories next year,” says co-executive producer Raelle Tucker. “That will be a very familiar and compelling character. It may be someone you’ve heard of before.” We will also once again visit the fairy world touched upon at the beginning of season 4. Says Tucker, “Season 5 will explore more fairies, new fairies, fairies in a way you haven’t really seen fairies. We will all, as well as Sookie, come to understand fairies more than in previous seasons.”

Wes Brown is joining the Thursday-night drama for a four-episode arc playing Ryan, a handsome stranger who will figure into Amelia’s ongoing addiction storyline. And not necessarily in a good way.
