Rose McGowan

Rose McGowan is reportedly filming a guest-starring role for an upcoming episode of Law & Order: SVU. The actress, whose credits include Charmed and Quentin Tarrantino’s Grindhouse, will go head-to-head with Chris Meloni’s Det.

CASTING KLAUS

To steal a phrase from Buffy the Vampire Slayer, “The Big Bad is coming” – but this time, the vampire that will make Vlad the Impaler look like a Girl Scout is headed for Mystic Falls. For fans of “The Vampire Diaries,” the arrival of Klaus – one of the original vampires – has been long-awaited, but series executive producer Julie Plec told TV Guide that her vision of the character continues to evolve. “It’s exciting to see a lot of new faces and try to figure out who we want that character to be and what kind of attitude we want him to have, what kind of charm we want him to have,” she says. “That character is evolving even as we cast because we see a lot of things that we like and we think, ‘Ooh, that’s interesting. What an interesting take on the character.’” What’s your vision of Klaus, and who should play him?

VAMPIRE DIARIES BODY COUNT WILL GROW

Who is going to die?

Some major characters will be meeting their ends this season on “The Vampire Diaries,” according to a report by TV Guide. “A lot of people are dying,” Katerina Graham told the magazine. “Not, like, too many, where it’s like, ‘Why are all these people dying?’ But a couple of important characters are going to go.” Who do you think will not live to see another season?

RHODA COMES TO WISTERIA LANE

Susan's boozy aunt Rhoda!

Television icon Valerie Harper will reportedly join “Desperate Housewives” in 2011 as Susan’s (Teri Hatcher) Aunt Claire. The show’s executive producer Bob Daily to TV Guide columnist William Keck that Harper’s character is a woman “who likes her booze” and will visit her niece in the hospital (Susan is injured in the midseason riot cliffhanger) when the series returns in January. Along with Aunt Claire, Susan’s mother, Sophie, played by Lesley Ann Warren, will also return.

EMILY DESCHANEL DIRECTORIAL DEBUT

Inspired by Emily Deschanel’s wedding in September, “Bones” creator Hart Hanson reportedly offered his lead actress the opportunity to make her directorial debut on the series’ Valentine’s Day episode. However, TV Guide columnist William Keck, who originally broke the story, now reports that Deschanel’s directorial debut will be postponed.  To allow her to prepare to direct, Hanson had minimized Deschanel’s role in the episode. However, with the series airing directly after ratings powerhouse “American Idol” during February sweeps, Hanson reportedly didn’t want to keep Temperance Brennan on the sidelines during this crucial time.

“Emily agreed with me that diminishing our star’s profile during these crucial episodes might compromise our chances to reach the new audience which ‘Idol’ may very well provide,” Hanson told TV Guide. “She very kindly consented to moving her directorial debut until later in the season. When it comes to ‘Bones,’ Emily puts the show first.  Which is why we love her.”
