This week, we learn more about Better Call Saul, which may have a Walter White cameo. Plus, Criminal Minds welcomes Jennifer Love Hewitt, Sherlock gives an early Christmas gift, Chris Colfer gets cyberhacked, and Hollywood says goodbye to actor Meshach Taylor.

Better Call Saul Timeline Will Include Walter White Era

Better Call Saul executive producer Peter Gould told the New York Daily News
that the show’s timeline will be flexible enough to include some of the Breaking Bad-Walter White years. While initial buzz was that Bob Odenkirk would play a 1980s version of Saul Goodman, Better Call Saul will actually span several decades. “One of the great things about having a time line which is flexible is that perhaps some of it takes place before Breaking Bad, during Breaking Bad, and after Breaking Bad. That gives us the ability to bring back characters that were killed on Breaking Bad,” Gould said. And while he would like to include Walter White, Gould says that Saul won’t live or die by a Bryan Cranston cameo. “We want to make a show that stands on its own,” Gould said, adding that the early order of season two
will help in plotting Saul‘s storylines for the long haul.

Jennifer Love Hewitt to Star in Criminal Minds

CBS announced Tuesday that Jennifer Love Hewitt (Party of Five, I Know What You Did Last Summer) will join the tenth season of Criminal Minds as a series regular. Her character, Kate Callahan — the newest addition to the Behavioral Analysis Unit — will be introduced during the season premiere on Oct. 1. “We have exciting storylines planned for her character and the entire BAU team as we head into our 10th season,” executive producer and showrunner Erica Messer said in a statement. Joe Montegna, who stars as David Rossi on Criminal Minds tweeted Tuesday, “I’m thrilled to have @TheReal_Jlh join @CrimMinds_CBS. She is a wonderful person and a great actress, we’re lucky to have her!”

Sherlock Will Get a Fourth Season and a Christmas Special

A Christmas gift for Sherlock fans! In an interview with The Daily Telegraph to promote his upcoming London production of Richard III, actor Martin Freeman spilled the beans about a Sherlock one-off special. “I think that might be for next Christmas. A Christmas special. That’s what I understand,” Martin told the Telegraph. The special — plus season four of Sherlock — was later confirmed by representatives of the show. “Series Four!” co-creator, writer and executive producer Mark Gatiss said. “At last ! It’s always special to return to Sherlock but this time it’s even more special as we’re doing… a Special! Not only THAT, we’ll then be shooting three more episodes which will take Sherlock and John Watson into deeper and darker water than ever before.” BBC One confirmed that Sherlock shooting will resume in January of 2015 with a tweet on Wednesday.

Glee‘s Chris Colfer Hacked on Twitter

Fans of Glee character Kurt Hummel were very upset on Thursday morning to read a tweet from Chris Colfer’s verified Twitter account stating, “Due to personal issues, I have been let go from the cast of GLEE. Explanations will come shortly…” Shortly after the tweet, The Hollywood Reporter confirmed that the tweet was sent by a hacker. 20th Century Fox TV, which produces Glee, also issued a statement: “We’ve been alerted that Chris Colfer’s Twitter account has been hacked. Rumors of his dismissal from Glee could not be further from the truth. We love Chris and look forward to working with him again this season.”

Remembering Meshach Taylor: 1947-2014

Beloved TV actor Meshach Taylor passed away Saturday after a battle with cancer. Known best for his role as Anthony Bouvier, an ex-con-turned-assistant on Designing Women (1986-1993), Taylor guest-starred in a long list of TV shows that included Hill Street Blues, Barney Miller, Lou Grant, The Drew Carey Show, Criminal Minds, Hannah Montana, and The Unit. In 1986, Taylor was nominated for an Emmy for “Outstanding Supporting Actor in a Comedy Series” for his role on Designing Women. He also co-starred with Harry Anderson in the sitcom Dave’s World for four seasons, and played Hollywood, the flamboyant window-dresser in Mannequin (1987). He was 67.

Variety reports on a rather intriguing fact-based baseball project that’s now underway at Warners. "Stolen Season" will tell the story of how a young Rick Dempsey (long before he played for the Baltimore Orioles) unknowingly befriended a bank-robbing little league coach…

The story "borrows a page from the real-life childhood of former Baltimore Orioles catcher Rick Dempsey, who fell under the spell of charismatic coach John Jennings when he was 13 and playing on a Southern California Pony League baseball team in 1963. By the time the summer was over, Jennings had robbed a string of 20 banks up and down the California coast, using the team’s travel as cover."

Producers Evan Astrowsky ("Cabin Fever") and Jon Shestack ("Disturbing Behavior") acquired the rights to Dempsey’s story, WB bought the concept, and promptly hired John Raffo ("Dragon: The Bruce Lee Story") to shape the tale into screenplay form. Former high-school baseballer Johnny Knoxville ("The Dukes of Hazzard") is apparently more than a little interested in playing the devious coach / bank-robber.
