Michelle ObamaAt the end of January, Michelle Obama will make an appearance as a guest on The Tonight Show. First Lady Obama will pay a visit to Jay Leno to speak about her "Let's Move" campaign for promoting exercise and activity in childhood, nutrition and her person life as the first lady of the United States of America.

We all remember Christian Camargo from Dexterhe has played the (spoilers if you're way, way behind) hero's long-lost biological brother who turns to serial killing as an outlet for some of the emotional problems that seem to run in his family. As Brian Moser (otherwise known as Rudy Cooper and The Ice Truck Killer), Camargo didn't need much help escaping the consequences of his killings. But the actor's new character on The Good Wife thinks it wise to seek legal counsel for a similar problem. Camargo will guest star on the CBS drama as a filmmaker under investigation after a documentary he created on suicide is assumed to have caused a girl to kill herself. Camargo follows former on-screen lover/would-be-victim Jennifer Carpenter (Deborah Morgan on Dexter), who guested on The Good Wife last month. Camargo's episode is set to air sometime in March. The Good Wife airs Sunday nights at 9 p.m. ET/PT on CBS. -TVLine

The talented singer and vocalist Andrew Rannells has done a good deal of TV and film voice acting since the mid-'90s. But his most famous contribution to pop culture is actually in the form of a stage role: Rannells played one of the lead characters in the Broadway production of The Book of Mormon, the musical created by Trey Parker and Matt Stone. Now that he's gotten his face out there, Rannells has landed a starring role in a new NBC pilot written and produced by Glee's creator, Ryan Murphy, and writer, Allison Adler. The series, which had its synopsis publicized back in the fall, surrounds a gay couple and the woman they welcome into their family to become the surrogate mother to their child. -THR
