Vampire Diaries: The CW has confirmed to us that Kelly Hu is the latest lucky, fine actress to cozy up to the brothers Salvatore (Ian Somerhalder and Paul Wesley). Kelly just tweeted: "1st time in Atlanta 2 shoot Vampire Diaries. Thot I was going to get mugged on the way home from Whole Foods. That's ok, I know karate." Nice! Kelly will be appearing in flashbacks as an apothecary named Pearl, but contrary to other reports, she doesn't go door to door and accidentally try to sell vervain to Katherine (Nina Dobrev). We'll first see her on Jan. 28.

Nicole Richie Show: The former Simple Life star and new mom has written on her website about her just-announced new ABC series: "I am creating a half hour scripted comedy for ABC in which I will be starring in, as well as producing...I can't wait to share more with you soon!" She also babbles on a bit about what inspired the new show, which you can read here. (Here's hoping the series is better written.)

True Blood/Prison Break: Lincoln's (Dominic Purcell) little boy Marshall Allman is all growed up and heading to HBO's True Blood to play Sam's little bro! According to E.W., Shannon Lucio, who also appeared on Prison Break was the GATE receptionist who turned out to be an undercover Fed, has been cast as Bill's wife, Caroline. Hey, casting directors, how about bringing on that guy from Mariah Carey's old video as a vampire? Wentworth something or other?
