While you're out shopping in stores today, you could see some of the talent from cancelled TV shows. Others may be hard at work on shows like 90210, Terminator: The Sarah Connor Chronicles, Samantha Who?, and Damages. Those keeping busy include William H. Macy (Sports Night), Rob Thomas, Ken Marino and Ryan Hansen (Veronica Mars), Martin Starr (Freaks and Geeks), Adam Scott (Tell Me You Love Me), Jane Lynch (Help Me Help You), Lizzy Caplan (The Class), Kristin Chenoweth (Pushing Daisies), David E. Kelley (Boston Legal), Matt Lanter (Commander in Chief), Tracy Pollan (Family Ties), Marissa Jaret Winokur (Stacked), Barbara Eden (I Dream of Jeannie), Dean McDermott (Tori & Dean: Inn Love), Rena Sofer (Just Shoot Me!), Connor Trinneer (Star Trek: Enterprise), Timothy Olyphant (Deadwood), Billy Zane (Twin Peaks), Kevin Sorbo (Hercules: The Legendary Journeys), and Wendy Diamond (Greatest American Dog). Remember on Bewitched when Dick York was replaced by Dick Sargent? Well, the same thing's about to happen to another Sam, this time on ABC's Samantha Who? sitcom. Apparently Timothy Olyphant (Deadwood) is so busy working on FX's Damages that he's not available to reprise his role as Christina Applegate's ex-boyfriend, Funk. As a result, they're recasting the role with Billy Zane (Twin Peaks). Geez, don't you think this is messing with poor Samantha's noggin a bit much?

Family Ties
