"Access Hollywood" chatted with the cast of FX's hit show "Nip/Tuck" Thursday at MTR's Paley Festival, and do we have some scoops for you!
Ryan Murphy, the show's creator, tells "Access" that there are at least 10 guest stars lined up this season, one of which is Academy Award-winning megastar Nicole Kidman! Kidman herself has not been reached yet for comment on this announcement.
"I would say bigger, more expensive definitely because we're building all these fantastic new sets," Murphy shared with "Access." "More guest stars, more Hollywood guest stars. Big iconic people who are coming on the show this year. I can't say who. I can't, I can't say. No I can't."
But when prodded further, Murphy started to give in: "So I have around 10 of them who are coming this season so it's exciting."
"Tell us one," our producer begged.
"Nicole Kidman's coming. I don't know when, but that's my scoop. People say, ‘Is she coming or is she not?’ She wants to do it so we're trying to make it work."
As we learned at the end of last season, the lead characters are moving their practice to Hollywood this season — thus, the higher prominence of more guest celebrities.
When asked about how the move will affect his character, lead Dylan Walsh said, "I'll know as the scripts come, you'll know before I know. But I look forward to the change and to see these characters in a different place because I think in certain ways the show was kind of running into the same things over and over again."Rosie O'Donnell, who made a big impression last season with her racy turn as Dawn Budge, will definitely be returning to the show, Murphy says.
As for her rumored spinoff show? Murphy says the wheels are in motion.
Joely Richardson, who took a break from the show to care for her ill daughter, will be back for a few episodes, although "Access" has learned that there will be a darker twist to her character. Murphy hints at a darker turn for Kelly Carlson's character, Kimber Kelly, as well.
