Jennifer Garner is a busy mama

Not only is Jennifer Garner working on baby #3, she's working on a new show for ABC. Based on a book, it's called The Geeks Shall Inherit the Earth and follows a group of high schoolers. It appears she will serve as an executive producer but will not appear on the show, but since it is still early on, perhaps she can be convinced to play a substitute teacher!

JJ Abrams and Michael Giacchino discuss their careers

J.J. Abrams and Michael Giacchino have been joined at the hip - so to speak - for at least the past ten years. The former video game score composer was tapped by Abrams to provide music for some of his biggest projects, including Alias, Lost, Star Trek, Super 8, and Fringe. He won the Oscar in 2010 for his score for the Pixar movie "Up." Last month, Abrams and Giacchino sat down and discussed their careers at the Hammer Museum. Here is the video, but be warned: it's 90 minutes long. Enjoy!

Sponsor Announcement: Upgrade your ride with BuyAutoParts.com!

Have you ever felt like you've paid way too much when you have your car fixed at a dealership? It's often because OEM Auto Parts (or Original Equipment Manufacturer Auto Parts) carry a high price tag. Getting your car back on the road, however, doesn't have to be so expensive. You can avoid those high markup prices and still get OEM Car Parts just like the dealerships use!

BuyAutoParts.com offers OEM Auto Parts just like the dealerships do, only at a much lower price, and best of all, orders over $50 ship for free! Once you have your OEM Car Parts from BuyAutoParts.com, you can have them installed by your trusted mechanic or do it yourself!  It's a great way to get the parts your car was built from, at a much lower cost.

Buying OEM Car Parts is important. Some generic replacement parts may be less expensive, but they aren't built specifically for your car. These generic parts can often affect your car's performance or cause damage. Generic parts are often of inferior quality and do not meet the high standards your manufacturer sets. Only BuyAutoParts.com offers OEM Auto Parts at the best price. Those are significant savings while you protect one of your biggest investments. Check them out today!

Looks like Jennifer Garner is gearing up for a possible movie franchise. Disney has signed Garner to play Miss Marple, the character based on Agatha Christie's series of mystery novels. The character is an elderly woman in the books, but it looks like Disney is looking to appeal to a younger audience by casting Garner. No word yet on production or release dates.

Is Nikita the new Alias?

Since it looks like we won't be seeing an Alias reboot or reunion, you should be watching "Nikita" on the WB, which is a great show and really comes close to capturing the Alias feel. There's plenty of intrigue and espionage, a good helping of spy vs. spy, and of course, a heroine that kicks booty. Lindsy Fonseca really channels Sydney as her character works as a double agent in an organization not unlike the Alliance. Maggie Q may not wear as many wigs as Sydney Bristow, but when you're having this much fun, who cares?

Fringe gives a shout out to Alias!

If you watched the February 25th episode of Fringe (and if you didn't, shame on you) then you likely noticed a bit of Alias lore return. The episode, which flashed back to the 1980's, showed a young Olivia taking stress tests, including the Project Christmas puzzle Jack gave to Sydney, which of course was featured in the final episode. You can see the puzzle, partially assembled, in the pic to the left. I would imagine this isn't a mistake using props, as this is a Fox show and Alias used ABC's prop department. I would guess this is a deliberate reference. It's kind of cool to think Fringe and Alias are set in the same J.J.-Verse. Given the wide appearance of Slusho in J.J. movies and shows, one must also assume the Cloverfield monster and Captain Kirk live in this universe as well.
