Today's TWoP News: September 2, 2010

Happy 90210 Day, everybody! In today's news, SNL wants to be funny, Big Bang wants to be nerdy, and Glee wants to be embarrassingly unhip. All is right with the world.

Three-time Emmy winner Bryan Cranston will host Saturday Night Live on October 2. And if that's not exciting enough, he'll have four new cast members to play with, including the show's new Barack Obama. This kid does such a good Eddie Murphy impression, they should bring back "Mr. Robinson's Neighborhood."

A TV show based on the comic book Sandman is in development at Warner Bros., and they want former Supernatural showrunner Eric Kripke to handle it -- which makes sense, since the man used to deal with Dreams, Death, Desire, Destruction, Destiny, Delirium and Despair every week on that show. Meanwhile, Syfy wants to do a TV prequel to Peter Pan, and they're getting the guy who made Tin Man and Alice, because why not.

In all our theorizing about Steve Carell's Office replacement, never once in a million years would we have come up with Harvey Keitel. I want to see this happen, simply out of morbid curiosity.

In "awesome guest-stars on awesome shows" news, geek legend George "Lt. Sulu" Takei will guest on The Big Bang Theory. Meanwhile, in the exact opposite of that category, Sarah McLachlan will guest on the One Tree Hill/Life Unexpected crossover. We'd rather watch puppies make sad eyes at us from behind bars at a kill shelter than subject ourselves to this "event."

Good news, people who watch TNT dramas -- Memphis Beat was just renewed for a second season. Marc Cohn's "Walking in Memphis" is blaring in some uberfan's apartment right now.

A new promo video reveals that, just like the rumored all-star cheftestants in the next season of Top Chef, New Directions will be heading for New York for the Nationals in Season 2 of Glee. Cue Artie rapping to Jay-Z's "Empire State of Mind," and us throwing up in our mouths a little.

Alyssa Milano. Lifetime. The plot of Drop Dead Fred. A match made in Heaven.
