Samberg Moves to BBC Three
Andy Samberg's Digital Shorts will be dearly missed on Saturday Night Live, but he hasn't abandoned the small screen completely: the post-SNL comedian has joined the cast of the BBC Three series Cuckoo. He plays the title character, a laid-back, go-with-the-flow type who doesn't necessarily jibe with his English girlfriend's refined parents. Cuckoo is set to start production soon, with an air date of late 2012.

Ashley Tisdale Joins Sons of Anarchy
Looks like Ashley Tisdale is doing her best to get as far away from her High School Musical roots as possible. On top of starring in the next entry of the Scary Movie franchise, Tisdale will pop up for a two-episode stint on FX's Sons of Anarchy as Emma Jean, a prostitute who stirs things up for the big-talkin' bikers of SAMCRO.

Aykroyd to Manage Soderbergh's Liberace
Behind the Candelabra, Steven Soderbergh's take on Liberace (Michael Douglas), has just tapped Dan Aykroyd to play the iconic singer's manager. Aykroyd has filled his schedule with less than stellar comedies and family films recently, so it will be great to see him exercise his dramatic chops again. With Matt Damon lined up to play Liberace's lover Scott Thorson, the biopic boasts an impressive amount of talent on both sides of the camera, and will film this summer to debut on HBO.

Dexter Gains Chuck Star
With Chuck behind her, Yvonne Strahovski will co-star alongside everyone's favorite serial killer, Dexter, during the Showtime drama's seventh season. Details are slim on her character, Hannah McKay, but with Swedish actress Katia Winter also joining the cast, it looks like Dexter will have more than his fair share of romantic prospects come September 30.
