It's so good to see him back on t.v., as I still feel to this very day that 'HawthoRNe' did him dirty, by not giving him a 'spin off' (Just like ''Big Shots' with Vartan and Nia Long who carried the show). Can't wait to check it out. Kudos to him for landing the role now let's hope it really takes off.


Ok this is like so weird...but I was just thinking about MV and wondering what he might be up to. Marc Anthony was supposed to perform on The Today show and MA made me think of Hawthorne which made me think of MV too funny!!
