Ask the Addict: Spoilers for DEXTER, GLEE, BONES, GREY’S ANATOMY & More!

Any word on how Colin Hanks is going to fit into the new season of DEXTER? — Dave
The TV Addict: Words, we’ve got plenty. What’s more, they’re not just a random collection of ambiguous ones strung together in a desperate attempt to leave readers with the impression we know far more about the upcoming sixth season of DEXTER than we actually do. Rather, they’re from the former good guy himself, Colin Hanks, who was kind enough to make up for interrupting our one-on-one with HOW I MET YOUR MOTHER’s Jason Segel during last week’s CBS/CW/Showtime Party by dropping a few hints about what fans can expect from his character. “Here’s the problem. So much of the show is a secret that they’ve sort of engrained in me to not ruin the secret and when you sign a legal binding document it sort of makes you not want to do that. What I can say is that my character Travis restores ancient artifacts and he has a relationship with a Professor Gellar that’s played by Eddie Olmos,” said Hanks, of his character who is sprinkled in throughout the season. “It’s amazing and I want to tell the world about it but I can’t. Here’s the one thing I can say, there are a few instances this season where we are doing things that the show has never done before that will make all the DEXTER-heads flip out!”

Is there any truth to the rumor that GLEE is going back to its first season roots this year? — Drew
The TV Addict: Indeed there is. So much so that fans will be thrilled to discover that when GLEE does return for its much-anticipated third season this Tuesday September 20th at 8PM on FOX (Global TV in Canada), it will do so in a very familiar fashion. Teased star Lea Michele during last week’s FOX TCA Party, “This is the only top secret information that I can give you. I was really hoping that in this upcoming season I would get no slushies, no mess and whatever and then… like page two of script one I’m already a mess! Obviously they’re doing it on the first script because we’re coming back from the break happy and well rested. Had they put that in mid season we all would definitely have said no, I’m not looking forward to that.” [Read more…]

10 Questions with GOOD GUYS Bradley Whitford and Colin Hanks

In anticipation of tonight’s sneak peak of THE GOOD GUYS (8PM FOX, Global TV in Canada), we recently had the chance to take part in a conference call with stars Bradley Whitford and Colin Hanks. Needless to see hilarity ensued, as you’ll very quickly find out by reading the ensuing interview.

Firstly Bradley, is your character not too old for this sh**t?
Bradley Whitford: Yes, absolutely

Colin, your father [Tom Hanks] did a very famous buddy TV series [Bosom Buddies]. Did he give you any advice for doing your own?
Colin Hanks: No, because I’m not wearing a dress. I’m carrying a gun, so there really wasn’t a lot of TV advice he gave. It’s sort of a different spectrum.

Bradley, your moustache deserves billing all to itself in the credits. Is there a story behind that big old thing being in the show?
BW: The big old thing. No, I am, I guess more proud than anything – whether it’s anything that’s done professionally, my children, anything – really my ability to grow facial hair. Look, a cop with a moustache, a cop with a bright future behind him with a moustache – it just seems like an absolute requirement going into this and the attention it’s getting – I’m jealous of the moustache.
