Talked with Carl Lumbly (Dixon) from “Alias.” What a cool guy. No, I don’t have any secrets to share about the show. He’s one of those lovely people who is very unHollywood and quite delightful. Can’t wait to write the story about him next week. This week I’m owrking on stories about Freddie Prinze Jr and his new comedy “Freddie,” and Jennifer Finnigan’s new series “Close to Home.” I like Freddie. The show’s a little cliche, but I hope it works out for him. If you have some extra time, come visit me at http://berkleyjoveauthors.com/forums/showthread.php?s=&threadid=867 and some questions.
