Tube News: Keri Russell, Jennifer Esposito, Rashida Jones and Rick Schroder

Keri Russell is Scrubs bound
Keri Russell is headed to Scrubs toward the end of the season, according to scoop diva Kristin Veitch at E!Online. Russell will play Elliot’s college roommate in two episodes. Hmmm…I wonder what Meghan and Elena would say about that?

Jennifer Esposito joins Rescue Me
We’ve always known Jennifer Esposito is hot, but she’s about to get hotter. Esposito is joining Rescue Me as a female firefighter who has a history with Tommy (Denis Leary.) TV fans will recognize Esposito as Stacey from Spin City, where she heated up the mayor’s office.

Karen to leave The Office
For the three of you out there hoping that The Office romance between Jim and Karen is a keeper, I have bad news. Rashida Jones has been cast in the new FOX comedy The Rules of Starting Over, according to E!Online. That means Jim, and The Office, will be Karen-less after the season finale. While I’m a devoted JAM fan, I do enjoy Karen, except for that weird work-place hug she gave Jim recently to mark her territory. But, frankly, if I were dating Jim Halpert, I’d be marking my territory, too.

Rick Schroder makes a name change
TV fans who love Rick Schroder, take note. Schroder has decided to return to his childhood name of “Ricky.” Apparently, Schroder is set to guest star on 24 and will be credited as “Ricky Schroder.” For those of us who remember him from Silver Spoons, he’s always been Ricky anyway, despite his spectacular adult performances on NYPD Blue and Strong Medicine. Zap2it has all the details on this fun and fascinating story.
