Today's TWoP News: Wednesday, August 10th, 2011

For some reason, Fox won't admit J.Lo is back for the next season of American Idol...

...but we all know she is. (She has no career otherwise.) Anyway, Nigel Lythgoe confirmed our suspicions on Seacrest's show this morning, saying "all three judges" will be back. No comment from Fox, or in other words: "Dammit, Nigel, you stole our thunder."

LaMarcus Tinker -- aka Dallas on Friday Night Lights -- has joined the cast of Glee as Marcus, a linebacker for the McKinley Titans and a love interest for Amber Riley's Mercedes. Say what you will about Mercedes' new boyfriend being (also) black and overweight, but it is fantastic casting. He is a talent. Welcome to the hot mess that is Glee, LaMarcus. We're almost positive you'll regret this decision.

Aw, this is cute. Hawaii Five-0 has cast The OC's Autumn Reeser as a love interest for Scott Caan's Danny (!). Yep. I already ship it.

Some ABC news: Gilmore Girls creator Amy Sherman-Palladino is working on a drama adaptation of the The Nanny Diaries, while the network has ordered a script from Lionsgate to convert The Lincoln Lawyer into a drama series. Why would they make a Nanny Diaries TV show? Not necessary. The movie was bad enough.

John Walsh -- America's Most Wanted creator and host -- will receive this year's Academy of Television Arts & Sciences Governors Award. Nice to see him get some recognition. Well-earned.

CBS has ordered a script from Sony Pictures Television for a potential remake of Bewitched. Casting ideas for Samantha? Becki Newton is out of a job...!

Cougar Town's Nick Zano has landed a recurring guest role on this fall's 2 Broke Girls. Remember when he was known for dating Kristen Cavallari? No? Just me, then? Cool.
