Daniel Gillies has joined the “Vampire Diaries” spinoff. Gillies has landed a lead role on the CW pilot “The Originals.” He’ll reprise his role of Elijah alongside Phoebe Tonkin (Hayley) and Joseph Morgan (Klaus). We’re darn excited about this show.

Oh dear. Black Bolt and Medusa enter the Psych Ward for couples counseling. Hey, even comic book characters have issues. It’s not all rosy inside those pages.

Cool! HBO Officially Developing A ‘Bored To Death’ Movie. We’ll take Schwartzman, Danson and Galifianakis any way we can get them.

Matthew Broderick is stopping by “Smash.” The Broadway and movie star is set to play himself on an episode of the NBC series. This season is shaping up to be amazing.

James Brolin has booked a role on “Castle,” playing Castle’s father in a two-part episode in February. Details of his appearance are under wraps, but remember, Castle grew up not knowing or caring who his father was, so it should be interesting. Especially given that dad has access to the CIA.

Marcia Gay Harden — love her! — is taking on the news. According to EW, the actress is headed to “The Newsroom,” taking over the the recurring role of Rebecca Halliday, played previously by Rosemarie DeWitt, who departed due to scheduling issues. Halliday is a litigator who defends Atlantis Cable News in a wrongful termination suit.

Lindsay Lohan has rejected an offer from “Dancing With the Stars,” saying she wants to stick to films and not delve into reality TV. Ok, let’s think about this. Her life is kind of like a reality TV, so we get that. Then again, “Stars” is several notches above “Celebrity Rehab,” so apples and oranges.

Arnold Schwarzenegger says he still loves Maria Shriver and wants to get back together. We believe in true love, and if it’s meant to be, it’ll be.

A tweet from @TeamCoco notes that @JustinBieber has surpassed @LadyGaga as the most followed person on Twitter. What a strange new world we live in.

Yes! We never liked ABC’s “Don’t Trust the B in Apt. 23,” and now it’s being pulled from the schedule. There IS a TV God.

My writer-bud David Hochman put together a fun slideshow over at Forbes.com. Things that only happen in movies. You know what they are – stuff like plate glass windows shattering, dogs in shoulder bags, real guys not looking at explosions…
