New pictures show Claire and Gretchen locking lips on Heroes, and Summer Glau inside the Dollhouse. Plus more images of Paris Hilton on Supernatural, a mysterious set photo from Lost, Smallville's fast-moving zombies, more from Scott Pilgrim... and Transformers news.
Here's a new TV spot for Roland Emmerich's disaster porn:
And a behind-the-scenes featurette goes beneath 2012's tidal waves:
Roberto Orci and Alex Kurtzman won't be scripting the third Transformers film, leaving Ehren Kruger, who worked with them on Transformers 2, as the sole screenwriter. Michael Bay says he'll be collaborating with Kruger on new toy-based characters. [CinemaBlend]
Scott Pilgrim vs. The World
Anna Kendrick says that her character, Scott's sister Stacey Pilgrim, is pretty true to the book, and she that most of her role involves yelling at Michael Cera on the phone. She also says creator Bryan Lee O'Malley's actual sister — also named Stacey — is an extra in one of the scenes. [MTV News]
A Lost watcher ran into L. Scott Caldwell, who plays Rose, at LAX airport, where she was on her way to Hawaii to film. No word on what she's filming, but apparently she won't be working more than a day. [DocArzt]
And Locke's wheelchair and Hurley's Hummer are visible in a recent set photo:
In an interview, Henry Ian Cusick, who plays Desmond, says that the new season picks up where it left off then "jumps all over the place," but that the cast is still as confused as ever when they pick up new scripts. He still doesn't know what happens to Penny or Desmond at the end, and he's not sure how much will be resolved, as Desmond has become a more peripheral character. [TV Guide]
We're coming up on the infamous Paris Hilton episode "Fallen Idol," in which Sam and Dean go hunting and come across a town where the residents are being killed by American icons like Abraham Lincoln and James Dean's car. Hilton plays herself (or rather a demonic version of herself — insert your own joke), and she's got the Winchester boys all tied up:
And the Winchester boys suit up for "I Believe the Children Are Our Future:"

Oh, and here's that much-touted girl-girl kiss:

Better Off Ted
In the ninth episode "Beating a Dead Workforce," Ted plans to surprise Gordon Jenkins, an overworked Veridian employee, with a cake as appreciation for all his hard work. But Jenkins has passed away overnight at desk. Veronica gives an inspirational speech at Jenkins' memorial service. The employees are moved to work even harder and Jenkins becomes a folk hero at Veridian. We'll meet April, a pretty young scientist, and Perry, a "cool dude" from accounting, who both listen to Lem's fake stories about how close he was to Jenkins. We'll also meet Beaver, Perry's best friend who has trouble living under Jenkins' shadow, and Johnny, who has driven all night while on meth to pick up parts for a prototype of a new sleep machine.
