* Lupe Ontiveros, who played Carlos' late mom on Desperate Housewives, will bring some Latina flavor to Reaper in the form of Ben's tiny, sassy grandma when the show begins its midseason run in January. Plus, Michael McDonald will appear as the boys' curmudgeonly high school biology teacher, Mr. Sprong.

* Supernatural wins this year's Best Episode Title with the upcoming 'Criss Angel Is A Douche Bag.' Even better, the magician-centered ep, which airs Jan. 22, features "Hey, It's That Guy!" trio Barry Bostwick (Ugly Betty, Spin City), John Rubinstein (Angel, 24), and Richard Libertini (every show ever made, but most recently, Monk and Numbers).

* Friday I brought you news of Jennifer Westfeldt's stint on Grey's Anatomy as a patient. Now I can tell you the show is looking to cast another sicko in a four-ep arc that might just be related to next year's big Grey's/Private Practice crossover. So, call your agents, struggling Caucasian male actors in your mid-30s.

* Tori Spelling's real-life squeeze and reality show costar, Dean McDermott, is getting his own Hallmark Channel movie! Always & Forever, which will also include a Bauer and an older, though still dreamy, Jeannie (Rena Sofer and Barbara Eden), hits the small screen next September.

Josh Cooke, star of several quickly cancelled NBC comedies, has signed on for a drama pilot at the network.

According to The Hollywood Reporter, Cooke will co-star in "Lost & Found," a police drama from Wolf Films and UMS.

The pilot stars Katee Sackhoff as an unorthodox LAPD detective who runs afoul of her bosses and is sent to work John and Jane Doe cases in the basement.

Cooke will play the main character's shrink in the Michael Engler-directed pilot.

At NBC, Cooke starred in the swiftly cancelled "Committed" and "Four Kings." He moved over to ABC, but found no more longevity in "Big Day." Last development season. Cooke starred in the CBS comedy "My Best Friend's Girl" and then was cast in an ABC comedy pilot from "Will & Grace" creators Max Mutchnick and David Kohan.
