As the rush of the Fall TV season inches closer and closer, we naturally get more news about which actors and actresses we'll see making appearances on a few new series.Bridesmaids' Wendi McLendon-Covey is a longtime fixture in television comedy. You might remember her from Reno 911, or the lesser-known Lovespring International, in which she had a starring role. The latest McLendon-Covey news has her guest-starring on the upcoming season of Fox's I Hate My Teenage Daughter. The actress will take the role of Principal Diego at the high school of Jamie Pressly's and Katie Finneran's loathesome teenage daughters. I Hate My Teenage Daughter premieres November 30 at 9:30 p.m. ET on Fox.
Rachael Harris is memorable as Ed Helms' horrific live-in girlfriend in the first Hangover movie, but has also had a long line of guest spots on impressive sitcoms, including Friends, Modern Family and Party Down. We will be seeing Harris in a guest role on the new NBC comedy Free Agents, starring The Simpsons' heavy-lifter Hank Azaria and frequent Will Ferrell-supporter Kathryn Hahn. Free Agents enjoys a soft premiere Wednesday, Sept. 14 at 10:30 p.m. ET and will premiere in its regular timeslot on Sept. 21 at 8:30 p.m. ET on NBC.
Steering away from the comedy, we have news that American Horror Story will be receiving a new guest star: Sarah Paulson. Paulson will enjoy a four-episode arc as a medium named Billie Dean.

The God of Legion secular Hollywood’s latest Biblically-inspired action flick is old-school an angry spiteful Almighty with a penchant for Old Testament theatrics. Fed up with humanity’s decadent warmongering ways He’s decided to pull the plug on the whole crazy experiment and start over from scratch.
Fortunately for us the God of Legion is also a rather lazy fellow. Instead of doing the apocalyptic work himself and wiping us out with a giant flood which worked perfectly well last time He opts to delegate the task to His army of angels — a questionable strategy that starts to fall apart when the archangel charged with leading the planned extermination Michael (Paul Bettany) refuses to comply.
Michael who unlike his boss still harbors affection for our sorry species abandons his post and descends to earth where inside the swollen belly of Charlie (Adrianne Palicki) an unwed mother-to-be working as a waitress in an out-of-the-way diner sits humanity’s lone hope for survival. Why is this particular baby so important? Is it the one destined to lead us to victory over Skynet? Heaven knows — Legion reveals little details its script devoid of actual scripture. What is clear is that God’s celestial hitmen want the kid whacked before it’s born.
But Michael won’t let humanity fall without a fight. Armed with a Waco-sized arsenal of assault weapons he hunkers down with the diner’s patrons a largely superfluous collection of thinly-sketched caricatures from various demographic groups led by Dennis Quaid as the diner’s grizzled owner Tyrese Gibson as a hip-hop hustler and Lucas Black as a simple-minded country boy.
Together they mount a heroic final stand against hordes of angels who’ve taken possession of “weak-willed” humans turning kindly old grandmas and mild-mannered ice cream vendors into snarling ravenous foul-mouthed beasts. They descend upon the ramshackle diner in a series of full-frontal assaults commanded by the archangel Gabriel (Kevin Durand) the George Pickett of End of Days generals.
Beneath its superficial religious facade Legion is really just a run-of-the-mill zombie flick a Biblical I Am Legend. Bettany an actor accustomed to smaller dramatic roles in films like A Beautiful Mind and The Da Vinci Code looks perfectly at ease in his first major action role wielding machine guns and bowie knives with equal aplomb. Conversely first-time director Scott Stewart a former visual effects artist does little to prove himself worthy of such a promotion serving up some impressive CGI work but not much else worthy of note.
