Yesterday was another fun one at the TCAs in LA! Buzz and I buckled down to enjoy the first day of ABC panels, which included some swoonworthy celebrity sightings including Ashton Kutcher and newly fit Zach Braff. Check out Buzz for full news on the shows, but here are my thoughts on the day, shows, and whether or not Jonny Lee Miller wants to talk about Angelina Jolie:
- The day kicked off with Eli Stone and the question on everyone's mind was Katie, Katie, Katie. We got a few more details on her role, but mostly we'll have to wait for Oct. 21 to see her return to TV singing and dancing.
- When asked about Angelina Jolie, her former husband, Eli Stone star Jonny Lee Miller, said we'd have to call her. Ha.
- Breaking news: The Scrubs folks are funny! While Bill Lawrence revealed that this will be Zach Braff's last year on the show, the whole group seemed excited about the move to ABC.
- Love love love Sarah Chalke (who they kept joking is the mother on How I Met Your Mother). Lots more from the hilarious panel here.
To hear more about the Scrubs panel and Ashton (!!) plus photos of the day just
- When asked about his recent weight loss, Zach Braff talked about being in the best shape of his life thanks to a certain someone he met about a year ago. Hmmm . . .
- The whole Scrubs cast genuinely seems like they love each other, which is such a treat — Braff and Donald Faison kept talking about being best friends. Guy love between two guys. Plus, Bill Lawrence was super excited for Courteney Cox to join the cast for a few episodes, and Neil Flynn (the Janitor) jokingly revealed that his characters real name is "Zanzibar Buck Buck McPhee".
- Sigh, Ashton. Nothing I love more than a man in a Red Sox hat. He was there to present the new game show he's producing, Opportunity Knocks which, briefly, is a contest about how well you know details about your family. When asked how he would do on it, Ashton said Demi would do better than he would since women are more attentive and compassionate.
- When asked about whether the show was his idea, Ashton talked about no one "owning" ideas and how we're just lucky to be able to "manage" them. He also talked about having no regrets about Punk'd, but enjoying doing something more family friendly fun too. So sweet hearing him talk about his girls, awww!
