Happy Birthday to Vartan!

It's Michael Vartan's birthday. Our favorite Frenchman turns 41 today. Ladies, please don't try stuffing yourselves into a cake and having yourself delivered to his house. Here's an interesting bit of Vartan birthday trivia: Michael shares his birthday with Steve Urkel (Jaleel White) and the Fresh Prince's Uncle Phil (James Avery).

J.J. to direct new spy drama pilot

J.J. Abrams is getting behind the camera for TV again, for the first time since he directed an episode of "The Office" a few seasons back. He is directing the pilot for "Undercovers," a drama about two married spies, for NBC. Abrams also directed pilots for "Alias" and "Lost" as well as the HBO drama "Anatomy of Hope." This is the spy drama we had reported on earlier, which until now was unnamed. No air date has been announced.
