New (and old) castings, guest stars ramp up several TV shows

Let's do a rundown of some of the noteworthy casting news that have been making the rounds lately:

- "Chuck" has cast Captain Awesome's parents. Morgan Fairchild will play Devin's mother and Bruce Boxleitner will play his father. Let me just say, the Awesomes are a good-looking brood.

- While we're on the topic of "Chuck," here is a list of notable guest stars who will be appearing all season long: Melinda Clarke, Tony Hale, Nicole Richie, Jordana Brewster, Michael Clarke Duncan and John Larroquette.

- According to E!'s Kristin Dos Santos, Serena van der Woodsen will have a new love interest this season on "Gossip Girl" and an integral character in the books, Aaron Rose, played by John Patrick Amedori ("Stick It"). Yay or nay?

- Also in "Gossip" news, word has it that Willa Holland ("The O.C.") will play a young model who meets Jenny Humphrey during her internship at Eleanor Waldorf Designs. Apparently she's not that innocent.

- Jennifer Aniston is set to guest star on "30 Rock." Super stoked on this one. Oh, and Oprah is in talks to make an appearance as well.

- Sarah Drew, a favorite on "Everwood," will be joining the cast of "Private Practice" for a multi-episode run. She will be spending lots and lots of time with Dell, the young midwife at the private hospital.
