Rosie Returning to 'Nip/Tuck'

July 12, 2007 11:20 AM

Rosie O’Donnell is coming back to “Nip/Tuck” in the fall, confirmed Ryan Murphy, creator of the show at the FX TCA panel. “She’s in episode four, and doing several episodes this year.”

As for the rumored spin-off series featuring Rosie’s character: “That character was so instantly popular,” he said. “We’ve spoken about it, it’s an ongoing discussion.”

Only problem: O’Donnell is seemingly in “ongoing discussions” for just about everything right now.

After the panel, FX president John Landgraf was highly doubtful any O’Donnell series will materialize due to her other offers. “She’s not going to be available for a half-hour comedy on FX,” he said. “Somebody is going to back a dumptruck of money up to her to do a daytime talk show. And I don’t know how any show with her will be compatible for ‘Nip/Tuck’ anyway.”
