News Flashes and Brief Follow-Ups

  • David Hewlett – Last week we reported that Hewlett was filming an episode of The CW’s new show Hellcats. Hewlett tweeted soon thereafter that he was actually going to be filming two episodes. No more details are available, other than that Hewlett enjoyed the location shoot that was near his home and that “this Hellcats is almost like work! Alarmed to discover these kids are as nice as they are good-looking!”
