Tube News

Dawson Leery is coming back to television, sort of. James Van Der Beek is set to guest star on this season of Ugly Betty, according to E! Also in talks to join the Beek in a guest-starring role, is Victoria Beckham, E! reports.

Those of you who’ve missed the excellent summer show Damages, on FX, you can catch the past episodes during a Labor Day Damages marathon. Tune in Sept. 3 from 3-8 p.m. ET for the marathon.

Wayne Newton is heading to Dancing With the Stars, according to People magazine. Newton has signed on to shake his booty for this season, the magazine is reporting. ABC has not yet officially released the cast names. That announcement will take place Aug. 29 on Good Morning America. The new season is scheduled to debut on Sept. 24.

Those of you waiting patiently for Dallas, the movie based on the television series, the good news is that John Travolta is still reportedly signed on to play J.R. The bad news is that now Dallas is being billed as a comedy. Director Betty Thomas, who did the tongue-in-cheek Brady Bunch movies, is in talks to take over the project, according to TV Guide. I think Travolta as J.R. is brilliant casting, but hello, Dallas is NOT a comedy. I wish the Hollywood folks would either do these ‘80s remakes correctly or leave them alone entirely. We don’t need another Dukes of Hazzard catastrophe.
