'NCIS' Actor Joe Spano Heads to 'In Plain Sight'

Joe Spano, who currently plays FBI Agent Tobias Fornell on NCIS, will be trading off his uniform for a chance to play a man of cloth on USA Network's In Plain Sight, which will conclude its third season on June 30. According to Fancast, Spano will guest-star as Gabriel Andrews, a priest who decides to enter WitSec after witnessing the murder of a parishioner's daughter in the season finale of In Plain Sight. Consequently, this means he'll be giving up his higher calling. Moreover, Gabriel finds himself in a somewhat unexpected line of work--"one that ultimately could bring his way the same sort of danger he is trying to escape." Spano, who is also credited for his roles on Hill Street Blues, NYPD Blue, and Murder One, is just one of the many guest stars this season on In Plain Sight. Past guest actors include Laura San Giacomo, Keith Nobbs, Joshua Malina, Steven, Weber Donnie Wahlberg, Lesley Ann Warren, and Cristian de la Fuente. Source Here

Top Moments of the Week: Glee, The Bachelorette and Baseball Get Awkward

There are lots of ways to handle awkward situations. Ignore them, which makes them worse (See: this week's Breaking Bad and Glee ). Force them into the open, which can get emotional ( Losing It with Jillian ). Or just hit someone ( Royal Pains ). This week's episode of The Bachelorette reminded us that the one thing you should never do is change the subject to the weather. What's the best way to deal with an uncomfortable moment? See No. 1 on our list. Welcome to Top Moments, elephant-in-the-room edition. 10. Least-Necessary Entourage: The Real Housewives of New Jersey 's Danielle brings her parolee friend Danny as her escort to a fundraising event. So far, so good. But then he arranges for a few friends to join them - including a Hell's Angel and a guy who looks straight out of Goodfellas. Why all the muscle? It's an event for sick kids. Is she worried about someone flipping a table on her? 9. Worst Meeting: Don't you hate it when your worlds converge? Like when your wife meets the sleazy attorney who helps launder your drug money? That never happens to you? Then consider yourself luckier than Breaking Bad 's Walter White, who squirms through a miserable meeting between lawyer Saul Goodman and Walt's not-quite ex, Skyler. Goodman, played by a masterful Bob Odenkirk, can barely restrain his condescension as he explains his money-management schemes. Then Skyler discloses that she's a bookkeeper. It sets up a dramatic change in the dynamic of Breaking Bad, as Skyler joins Walt in hiding his ill-gotten gains. This should go smoothly. To Read More Click Here .

Tonight's TV Hot List: Wednesday, April 21, 2010

* American Idol (8/7c Fox) It's all about inspiration this week on Idol. Last night, the seven still-standing singers performed a batch of inspiring tunes, a proper lead-in to tonight's uplifting "Idol Gives Back" episode, an initiative that raises funds for U.S. and global charities and brims with performances. Queen Latifah emcees the performance portion of the show from the Pasadena Civic Auditorium, where Alicia Keys (last night's mentor), Carrie Underwood, Black Eyed Peas, Annie Lennox, Elton John, Jeff Beck and Joss Stone, and Mary J. Blige take the stage. But on such a giving evening, something might be taken away: One of the Top 7 singers is slated to be eliminated. * Mercy (8/7c NBC) There's something about Mary Stuart Masterson, who resumes her guest-star arc in this character-driven hospital drama. Masterson's character, therapist Dr. Denise Cabe, comes to the fore when she continues treating nerve-jangled nurse and war vet Veronica, who's still coping with her post-traumatic stress disorder. Then there's Chloe, who desperately searches for an ER patient who may have a deadly affliction. Meanwhile, Sonia's role in her home-care patient's death comes into clearer focus. * Accidentally on Purpose (8:30/7:30c CBS) The first season closes with the conclusion of a two-parter, in which Billie goes into labor. In the previous episode, she lied about going into labor to get Zack out a speeding ticket. The officer insisted on escorting them to the hospital, where their real labors began - trying to escape without the officer seeing them. They did, with Davis' help, only to get stopped again... but this time, Billie isn't faking, and the real fun begins. Oh, except for Zack getting arrested and taken to the police station. * In Plain Sight (10/9c USA Network ) Steven Weber guest stars as an FBI agent who teams up with Mary and Marshall to persuade an informant to enter witness protection. The trio has its work cut out for them and must try to get through to the stubborn man, but Weber's character could face an even bigger challenge when he seems to take a liking to Mary. Stan, meanwhile, has his hands full as well with an ex-boxer witness who's suffering from dementia. * P.O.V. (9/8c PBS) Season 23 begins with Robert Kenner's provocative Food, Inc. The documentary examines the change in food production that's occurred over the past generation, when the corporatization of agriculture led to a few companies controlling almost everything. Here's one tidbit to chew on: Although a corn diet increases the risk of E.coli in cows, corn is what they're fed. As food-safety advocate Barbara Kowalcyk notes, "we're not being protected at a most basic level." And she should know: Her 2-year-old son died in 2001 from an E. coli infection. Source Here
