It’s been just over 20 years since we first got to know Scott Foley on the beloved series Felicity, and he’s managed to have a pretty good run of success in Hollywood since then. He’s had long-running roles on that show, The Unit, and Scandal, along with extended guest roles on Grey’s Anatomy, True Blood, and Scrubs. The latter showed his flair for comedy, something he’ll be exercising once again on his new series, Whiskey Cavalier. It’s a hybrid show, mixing action with comedy, and Foley told us he was absolutely ready to do something a little lighter than Scandal.(Click on the media bar below to hear Scott Foley)
A sneak preview of Whiskey Cavalier will air right after the Oscars, and its official premiere will be next Wednesday (2/27) on ABC.

Marcia Clark didn’t exactly make a name for herself in the entertainment business: She became a household name because of her involvement in the infamous O.J. Simpson murder trial back in the 1990s. However, she’s parlayed that high-profile experience into a show-business career. She’s the co-creator and producer of a new show coming to ABC called The Fix. It’s about a character she knows well – an L.A. prosecutor who loses a high-profile murder case. Clark told us that it’s difficult for the justice system to work when somebody famous is involved, no matter how many prosecutors are working on the case.

A lot of TV actors are thrilled when they get to do a show that’s a spin-off of an already successful show. To them, it’s the best of both worlds: They get to do something that feels brand new, but they also get the bonus of playing character they already know really well. Tim Meadows says that’s exactly how it is on the set of Schooled, since he, AJ Michalka, and Bryan Callen already had a built-in rapport from working together on The Goldbergs.

This year marks Jesse Williams’ 10th anniversary of joining the Grey’s Anatomy cast.
