The Most Incredibly Exciting Week Ever
Okay, that may be overstating things a little, but seriously, folks, there's a lot of exciting pop culture stuff going on in the next week or so. Here's a rundown of the things that interest me. (Notes: All times are Eastern. Here's an explanation of "upfronts".)

West Wing Not-Quite-Reunion, on Your TV Tonight
So! It is POSSIBLE, I suppose, that three completely other people are going to be on the show tonight, and the Whitford/Malina episode will be later this season. But! When you hear hoofbeats, don't look for zebras.* I think it's pretty safe to assume that it's tonight. (And SOME West Wing folks will be on regardless, so...) Set your TiVos! Comedy Central, 10:30pm Eastern.
Why do I call it a not-quite-reunion? When I asked Malina whether he and Whitford were appearing together, he told me they were on the same episode but did not actually work together. (Because of this and their well-publicized practical joke war/the way they "hate" each other, I would like to nominate them as dark horse and possibly tongue-in-cheek candidates for this. But I doubt it's actually them.) But still! Two of my favorite actors in one half-hour episode. I will not complain.
UPDATE: After I wrote this post, Josh Malina confirmed that he will be on tonight's episode. All my detective work turns out to have been unnecessary. Ah well!
* This is a phrase that my physician mother actually uses, and that the interns were taught on Grey's Anatomy. I point this out only because I feel any time something on Grey's resembles actual hospital practices, it should be noted, as it is so rare.

A Valentine from Code 58
We now have video proof that Bradley Whitford and Colin Hanks are action heroes:

Code 58 Day!
Today is a glorious day: It's Code 58 Day! No, the show isn't on until May. But today's the day when they started filming in Dallas! If you haven't heard of Code 58, it's the new Bradley Whitford/Colin Hanks show from Matt Nix about a mismatched pair of cops. I made a Twitter list of people associated with the show that I will continue to update. Follow it here. There are some great production updates, including the fact that Whitford and Hanks were doing dueling Christopher Walken impressions between takes. We can only hope that that makes it onto some DVD special feature...

Your Bradley Whitford non-news of the day
In this all-around amusing TV Guide video of various actors backstage at the press tour, Bradley Whitford says that his quirky talent is tying his legs behind his head:
But he won't/can't do it in those jeans. Never fear! He did it on Ellen a few years ago:
So there you have it.
