    We love pilot season, especially because of the casting announcements. TV stars we love are returning to new projects (Zachary Levi), movie stars are headlining pilots for the first time (Kevin Bacon!), and both movie and TV stars we never dreamed would work together are pairing up for shows. It's a big ol' casting party!

    So you wanna know who's headed to the small screen?
