Joe Jonas Gets a New Zip Code:
Can't Navid ever catch a break? It looks like he's going to have some serious competition for Adrianna's affection. Disney channel alum, and all around heart throb, Joe Jonas, will be playing himself on an upcoming episode of 90210. It looks like he will be accompanying Adrianna to a magazine cover party. So I guess Adrianna's music career is really kicking into gear ever since she stole those songs. [Ausiello]

Locke & Ben Fighting Crime in Potential New Series
Last week we told you about two new shows that J.J. Abrams' Bad Robot is producing. Well, the hits keep coming because it looks like Bad Robot is going to be behind the much anticipated (by me) Terry O'Quinn and Michael Emerson spy drama. During the Lost finale press junket, the two actors often referred to a series they wanted to star in which would be about two ex-spies. I thought they were kidding, but it turns out they are dead serious. The new show is tentatively titled Odd Jobs, and will be produced by Abrams and collaborators Josh Appelbaum and Andre Nemec (both from Lost) [Vulture]

It's About Time
The criminally under-appreciated Callie Thorne will finally be getting her due. The actress who has long appeared as the wife/girlfriend role in shows like: Rescue Me, The Wire and Prison Break, will be getting her own break. Thorne has earned the lead role in the USA pilot: Necessary Roughness. The series will be about a therapist for a professional football team. We'll be keeping our fingers crossed for this one.

Sad news for fans of Spartacus
It was reported this weekend that the magnetic lead of the STARZ series Spartacus: Blood and Sand, Andy Whitfield, is leaving the show. Whitfield was diagnosed Stage 1 non-Hodgkin lymphoma earlier this year, and took a break from the series to undergo treatment. He was scheduled to come back for the second season, but sadly his cancer has reoccurred and he is leaving the show to spend time with his family. We wish you well Andy. [THR]
