News Roundup: Early 2012 Cast & Plot Updates

by Amy K. Bredemeyer

This is the second part of our first news round-up of the year, so it covers nearly three weeks of entertainment fun facts. As mentioned before, there has been a TON of news in the past three weeks, so we split the post into three topics to be more digestible (though you may notice that this is the smallest section of the bunch). Next week we plan to return to our normal, one-news-post-per-week schedule.

Cast & Plot Updates:
Carl Reiner will guest on Parks and Recreation. So will Paul Rudd.

Whoopi Goldberg will play Sue's guidance counselor on The Middle.

Emma Stone will be on 30 Rock on January 26th.

Brian Stokes Mitchell and Jeff Goldblum will play Rachel's dads on Glee.

Howard Stern is the newest judge on America's Got Talent. [NBC Universal Press Release]
Word around the tabloids is that Leah from Teen Mom 2 is pregnant again... AND engaged. But that's not all. Jenelle has been charged with making harassing phone calls and communicating threats. She was released on bond. Later that same week, she was arrested again, this time for violating a domestic protective order.

The new season of Who Do You Think You Are? premieres February 3rd. But, more importantly, it will feature Martin Sheen, Maris Tomei, Helen Hunt, Reba McEntire, Rob Lowe, and more.

Next fall's The Simpsons "Treehouse of Horror" episode is already underway. Showrunner Al Jean has said that, "It deals with in no particular order, The Mayan calendar's prophecy of the end of the world, black holes, Paranormal Activity and what would've happened if Homer and Marge hadn't gotten ready."

Mike & Molly's eponymous stars will likely get married for May sweeps.
