We interrupt your regularly-scheduled weekend activities to bring you these urgent casting bulletins:

• Now ER‘s series finale really qualifies as Must-See TV. In her first major TV gig since Gilmore Girls signed off two years ago, Alexis Bledel has inked a deal to guest-star in ER‘s two-hour swan song on April 2. According to People, she’ll play a new intern named Julia Wise in the episode, which chronicles a 24-hour shift at County General.

• Ex-Grey’s Anatomy doc Melissa George has nabbed the female lead in the CBS drama pilot US Attorney, sources confirm to me exclusively. She’ll play Susan, ADA and ex-wife to the section chief (played by Jason Clarke). Attorney centers around a team of federal prosecutors in the U.S. Attorney’s office in Manhattan.

You may now resume your regularly-scheduled weekend activities.
