  • Kelli Giddish, who will join the cast of Law & Order: SVU, will also reprise her role of The Good Wife‘s saucy Sophia Russo. She is set to appear only in the CBS drama’s Season 3 premiere, which airs Sunday, Sept. 25, at 9/8c, and picks up very soon after the events of the sophomore finale. But pre-SVU, series creators Robert and Michelle King had bigger, frothier plans for Kalinda’s latest — and married — hook-up. And those plans were going to form the shape of a triangle. Source
  • The veteran TV actress Lily Tomlin will follow in the footsteps of Ralph Waite (Gibbs’ dad) and Robert Wagner (DiNozzo’s dad) to depict Penelope, McGee’s grandmother. She’ll show up in the early fall. “We are very excited to have the gifted Lily Tomlin join us to play McGee’s grandmother,” says NCIS exec producer Gary Glasberg. Source
  • Lost‘s John Terry, who played Christian Shephard, will appear on ABC’s new Charlie’s Angels as Victor Sampson, the dad of cat burglar-turned-Angel Abby (played by Rachael Taylor). Source
