That’s not all. "Gossip Girl" hottie Blake Lively will replace series favorite Mary Lynn Rajskub as Chloe O’Brian. Rajskub, when told of the news, was seen with a glaring frown and overheard to say, crankily, "Whatever."
And get this: Conan O’Brien will have a cameo as Lively’s brother, a character named…Conan O’Brian. In announcing the cameo appearance Conan O’Brien said, "I won’t actually be playing myself, though my character will have my name, sorta. I’ll actually be portraying a nasty Jay Leno playing Conan O’Brian."
"24" showrunner Howard Gordon, if reached by TVWeek for this story, would have said, "Hey, that’s a pretty good one. Do you always come up with stuff like this on April 1st?"
