ER Casting: Courtney B. Vance

Courtney B. Vance, probably best known for his work on Law & Order: Criminal Intent , has signed on for a multi-episode arc on the upcoming season of ER . He'll be playing husband to Angela Bassett, newly minted ER regular and real-life spouse to Vance. Guess the on-screen chemistry should be fiery... This is the first time that the two have worked together. Source: TV Guide

ER Scoop: Dr. Barnett is Returning, Legs and All

I've fallen behind on ER these past few seasons. Apparently, in my absence, Shane West's "Dr. Barnett" not only departed the program, but did so sans legs (which he lost in a car accident). Well mark your calendars, because Dr. Barnett is heading back to the ER on October 30th, with some brand spanking new prosthetic legs (which are apparently so awesome that things will appear that he was never in an accident at all...convenient). West is also on board for at least one additional episode this season. Source: EW

ER: Someone is Leaving...

...and it won't be a very happy departure.. Spoiler Alert ER insiders have reported to E!Online that one of the show's current regulars will be departing at the end of this season...dead. The story line will began during this season's finale and will conclude in the Fall. Who do you think it's going to be? Well...this question actually isn't that hard. John Stamos, Parminder Nagra and Linda Cardellini have signed on for next season so we know they'll be back. Last we checked, Mekhi Phifer had not yet renewed his contract. Sounds like a red flag to me! Other options include Maura Tierney (who will only be appearing for some of next season...perhaps as a ghost) and Scott Grimes (who I assume nobody would care about if he was to die, so I doubt it is him).

ER Gets a 15th Season...and it WILL be the last one!

In you have not yet seen NBC's 2008-2009 Fall/Winter TV Lineup , you might not yet know that ER has in fact been renewed for a 15th season (though fans had been told previously that this year would be the end, the show is said to have experienced a recent rejuvenation). Says NBC: "ER is one of the greatest shows of all time and we can't wait to deliver to the audience the fantastic stories the series is known for." Though I used to be a die-hard ER fan, I must admit that I've stopped watching in recent years. What do you guys think? Does ER have enough stories left to tell? Source: BuddyTV
