Is Colin Hanks going to be "Dexter's" bad guy in season six?

• Could "Dexter" have its newest big baddie in place for season six? Michael Ausiello of TVLine reports that the killer show has cast Tom Hanks' son Colin for a major story arc. As fans know, celebs have joined the shows in past seasons to play lovable serial killer Dexter Morgan's nemesis, so it wouldn't be shocking for the younger Hanks to be the seasons big bad dude. Details of the role are kept under "insanely tight wraps," according to Ausiello. Hanks most recently starred in Fox's "The Good Guys."

• When police pulled over Pittsburgh Steelers wide receiver and “Dancing With the Stars” front-runner Hines Ward last week, Ward believed he must have been the star of an elaborate prank. "I actually thought I was on 'Punk'd.' I did,” the ballroom favorite told TMZ. “But something about guns pointed at me wasn't very fun." Of course, if the firepower hadn't given away the serious nature of the situation, then the fact that “Punk’d” went off the air four years ago might have.

• Viewers who caught the last episode of MTV’s “16 and Pregnant” already had reason to believe Ryan McElrath, sometimes-boyfriend of teen mom Jamie McKay, had the potential for some bad behavior. Maybe it was the fact that the 18-year-old showed up to his daughter's birth a full five hours late, or maybe it was that when he finally got there he had one heck of a hangover, but either way, McElrath’s on-air ways seemed to hint at trouble to come. Sure enough, TMZdiscovered more issues. As it turns out, McElrath has been arrested three times in the last year. According to the new reality TV star, his July 2010 arrest for felony cocaine possession was “totally false.” His August 2010 DUI was “the one time I drank and drove.” And his November 2010 assault? “Everybody thought the charge was ridiculous, even the DA,” the young dad explained.

• E! announced Monday that "Keeping Up With the Kardashians" returns for its sixth season on June 12 at 10 p.m. The 12-episode season will focus on Kim working to balance work with her relationship with Kris Humphries.
