TV stars' double takes -- Fall's new TV shows recycle Lucy Liu, Jerry O'Connell, and others

Lots of TV stars are turning up in new (yet oddly familiar) roles this season. Here, a look into the recycling bin.

LUCY LIU
The Cashmere Mafia publishing exec with glam accessories has morphed into Dirty Sexy Money's glam diva who sees men as accessories.

KEVIN MCKIDD
On Journeyman, he time-traveled to save lives. Now he's a doc who travels to Seattle Grace to save lives — and hook up! — on Grey's Anatomy.

ELIZABETH REASER
The hopeful amnesiac on Grey's who thought Dr. Karev was The One is now a hopeful singleton looking for The One on The Ex List.

JERRY O'CONNELL
First a horny dentist on Carpoolers, then a horny hotel manager on Do Not Disturb. We're beginning to see a pattern here, Jerry.
