Today's TWoP News: March 8, 2011

In today's headlines a pretty face means more than any talent.

It's nice to know there are still places on TV where beautiful people seem to gather. Marc Anthony is joining the cast of HawthoRNe with the hopes that another pretty face will help the show avoid actually having a plot of any kind for another season.

The CW has cast Brian Hallisay as its male lead in its upcoming zombie show Awakening. I can already feel the melodrama strong enough to kill the undead.

Law & Order: LA is coming back in April after dumping half of its original cast and turning Alfred Molina into a detective instead of a DA. It's too bad with all these changes they didn't just change the city back to New York.

The Daily Show's Chief Black Correspondent, Larry Wilmore, is getting a sitcom on CBS. Wilmore is no stranger to prime time, having produced shows like In Living Color and created The Bernie Mac Show. As excited as I might be for this show, I kind of wish that he could have just taken over for Charlie Sheen on Two and a Half Men.

Author Michael Chabon might be getting an HBO show. The series will be about magicians fighting Nazis.

Summer is almost here! NBC just announced the season finales of all of its fall/winter shows. I can't remember though, is it appropriate to wear white shoes before or after the end of SNL's season?

Oh, and Charlie Sheen is officially fired from Two and a Half Men. That is all.
