TV Potpourri: Dr. Rory Gilmore on ER, Fox's new "Glee" club

Hugh Jackman wasn't kidding: the musical IS apparently back.

Everyone's favorite TV guru, Michael Ausiello, reports at EW.com that Fox's upcoming musical comedy "Glee" will feature Broadway and television veterans Kristin Chenoweth (serenity now, Tom) and Victor Garber ("Alias") as recurring cast members on the mid-season replacement for "American Idol." Described as a sort of "Friday Night Lights" for the drama geeks, the show follows the efforts of a Spanish teacher trying to makeover the school's less-than-excellent glee club. Did I mention that Ryan Murphy, best known as the creator of the deliciously weird "Nip/Tuck" is responsible for this?

More News from the ER

Apparently Rory Gilmore couldn't hack it in the news biz, so she moved on to... medical school? "Gilmore Girls" star Alexis Bledel has signed on to guest star in the "ER" series finale on April 2 as new intern Julia Wise, according to Radar. On the heels of the much-anticipated return of George Clooney (supposedly in the March 12 episode) to the show, it's not terribly exciting, but we're looking forward to a lot of speed talking and coffee. Speaking of Clooney's return, he did tell Larry King that his appearance will coincide with another big-name guest star: Susan Sarandon.

Hmm... seems mighty strange to have Susan Sarandon and Alexis Bledel pop in so late in the game. Do I smell spin-off?

It does, but I doubt it. Sarandon's appearance as a grieving grandmother is pretty similar to other appearances by big name stars on the show. The only one who ever managed to snag a recurring role was Sally Field.

Too bad they didn't get Bledel in earlier -- how great would a catfight between Rory Gilmore and Lindsay Weir over Uncle Jesse have been???
