Did y’all hear that Smallville has hired Teri Hatcher to play Lois Lane’s mom, in a cameo role? That both made us feel like we’re about A MILLION YEARS OLD and also got us thinking about TV’s other dream cameos. Oh, yes. A certain intern IS mentioned:

But imagine how delicious it’d be if, say, [Alicia Florrick] had to take her kids to
the doctor, and the pediatrician turned out to be none other than her
ex-ER co-star George Clooney, as — oh, let’s call him Dr. Ross
Douglas. In fact, we’d advocate setting an entire episode in Dr.
Douglas’s office. And then, if Cloons is in a giving mood, his character
could get sued for malpractice and need a lawyer … and the stress could
cause him to develop an extremely rare, tragic pants allergy.”

Obviously, shenanigans would ensue. To read more — wait until you see what we envision for Vampire Diaries! — please pop over to Vulture! (Where our friends in the photo department, I have to say, seriously outdid themselves this time. Wait until you see….well, I don’t want to spoil it.)
