'Girls' gets lucky with Patrick Wilson and 'Parks and Rec' wants your skills

zap-photo-a-gifted-man-patrick-wilson-420.jpgThere's a new guy on 'Girls": Patrick Wilson, who recently blasted CBS for not telling him directly that they'd canceled his drama "A Gifted Man." He hasn't left his medical career behind -- Wilson's season-two guest gig has him playing a doctor who lives next door to where Hannah works. (Or should that be "works" in air quotes?) He's rumored to be a potential love interest for Hannah (show creator Lena Dunham)...does this mean her passionate boyfriend Adam ( Adam Driver) -- whom we last saw in an ambulance -- is out of the picture for good?

MTV announced the premiere date of "The Inbetweeners," an adaptation of the popular British comedy: Monday, Aug. 20, at 10:30 p.m. Like "90210" (but not really at all), "Inbetweeners" follows a group of teenagers (a quartet of dudes) transitioning from high school toward adulthood. Joey Pollari, Mark L. Young, Bubba Lewis, Zack Pearlman and Alex Frnka star in the half-hour show, airing after Rob Dyrdek's "Ridiculousness" at 10:00 p.m.

"General Hospital" star Kirsten Storms took a leave of absence last year for "personal reasons," but she may be heading back to the show! Word is that the former "Zenon: Girl of the 21st Century" is in talks to return to her soapy roots. Could the real Maxie be back? [ Soap Opera Digest]
