The Veronica Mars Movie Adds Sheriff Lamb – But It's Not Y&R's Michael Muhney
Jerry O’Connell will play Sheriff Lamb — “No, not that Sheriff Lamb,” he clarifies in a YouTube video to fans – in Veronica Mars‘ upcoming feature-film adaptation.

He will take on the role of Dan Lamb, “a new Lamb brother I hope you love to hate,” creator Rob Thomas writes in an email to the film’s Kickstarter contributors.

Marshmallows will remember that Dan’s brother Don (played by THE YOUNG AND THE RESTLESS' Michael Muhney) — aka the insensitive lawman who famously told a rufie’d Veronica to “Go see the Wizard. Ask for a little backbone.” — died in Season 3 from head trauma incurred while responding to a call.

'She: An Expo for Women' adds DAYS OF OUR LIVES star Deidre Hall to lineup
Two more stars are coming to Chattanooga for "The Ultimate Girls' Weekend Out."

THE DOCTORS physician Travis Stork and DAYS star Deidre Hall are the newest additions to 'She: An Expo for Women' on July 27 and 28 at the Chattanooga Convention Center.

"Both Deidre and Travis are great additions to round out this year's She Expo," said Jason Taylor, president and general manager of the Chattanooga Times Free Press. "Deidre is a legend in daytime television with a huge following in our area, while Travis brings an entertaining, fun approach to living a healthier, more fulfilling life. She Expo will definitely have a little something for all the women in attendance."

The duo of television personalities will take the stage July 28. At 2:45 p.m., Hall will take photos with fans and sign books available for purchase on-site, while Stork will give a speech and take audience questions at 4 p.m.

Lindze Letherman on her GENERAL HOSPITAL return
"Georgie and Maxie have always had such a strong bond and Georgie was always a conscience for Maxie when she wasn't one for herself," says Letherman. "She was always the person who could get through to Maxie and be that voice of reason and that kind of compass. Nobody else could do that for her. But Maxie put the strength in Georgie, too, to take the risks that she would never take. So they really were counterbalances for each other. That's why their relationship was so wonderful."

"Legacy Falls": Daytime Soap Opera Parody Musical Hits New York Musical Theatre Festival
The show, which premiered July 16 as part of the New York Musical Theatre Festival, takes a no-holds-barred (if facetious) approach to the popular television medium. Taking its title from the name of a fictional American program, “Legacy Falls” promises to “dish the dirt on soaps,” skewering all the hirings, firings and behind-the-scenes catfights between co-stars, some of whom are hiding little secrets of their own.

“Legacy Falls,” which features DAYS alum Kevin Spirtas in its cast, may seem like a winning format for a reality series, but according to composer-lyricist James Burn, daytime dramas provided ample source material “ideally suited” for musical theater, particularly in a show intended as a satire.

MAD MEN Trumps HOUSE OF CARDS on Netflix

Jane Lynch Talks Cory Monteith Death: "We've Lost a Really Great Guy"—Watch the Emotional Clip
An emotional Jane Lynch talked about losing a man she referred to as a "really great guy" while appearing on THE TONIGHT SHOW WITH JAY LENO this evening.

"Cory's one of the biggest hearts, was a real bright light. He was one of those guys that…you know, he knew he was breathing rarified air…the gifts that this wonderful show gave us," she told the audience.

"He was always aware that it was a gift and he was quite generous. He was one of those adventurous types of those people. I always admired how he would get up…you know, he would fly to Mexico, he'd throw parties for his friends. I don't think he left one day unlived. He was a real bright light in our family and we've lost a really great guy."

And that's exactly how Lynch hopes the GLEE star will be remembered.

"He once flew across the country on his own nickel to meet with a sick kid [whose] last wish was to meet him. That's just the kind of guy he was. Just a real giver."
