NBC's highly anticipated "Michael J. Fox Show," which premieres Sept. 26, has reportedly signed Anne Heche to play the recurring role of Fox's rival news anchor, Susan Rodriguez-Jones. The new series features Fox as Mike Henry, a New York City TV anchor who has taken a five-year break due to the onset of Parkinson's disease (which Fox has in real life). Henry has a supportive but feisty family that is relieved by his decision to go back to work - apparently he's like a housewife on steroids.

For cheap thrills, "Nothing Left to Fear" is true to its title. Director Anthony Leonardi III and writer Jonathan Mills have let not one scary moment on screen. And that's frightening. Not so much for the film's teen stars Ethan Peck (the great Gregory's grandson), Jennifer Stone of "Wizards of Waverly Place" and Rebekah Brandes. They're young. PHOTOS: Fall movie sneaks 2013 But for Anne Heche and James Tupper, there is nothing in "Nothing" for either of the actors except to figure out which one will write the apology notes to fans.

If there were an Emmy for Most Disturbingly Apt Title of Series, NBC's new comedy "Save Me" would win hands down. It just works on so many levels. "Save me" is certainly the phrase that surges to a critic's mind moments into the ludicrous machinations of the pilot. It is easily imagined in thought-bubble form above the head of the show's star, Ann Heche. FOR THE RECORD: "Save Me": A review of the NBC comedy "Save Me" in the May 23 Calendar section misspelled star Anne Heche's first name as Ann. - More important, it is becoming the network's not so subconscious mantra.

In the upcoming Mafia thriller "Donnie Brasco," actress Anne Heche holds her own with wit and grace as the tough wife of Johnny Depp's undercover FBI agent. And in "Volcano," with Tommy Lee Jones, she plays a scrappy seismologist who comes up against a lava flow on Wilshire Boulevard. So it's no surprise that Heche can tackle spring's edgiest clothes. A skirt that looks like a test pattern paired with a print shirt. A color-blocked sweater over geometric-motif pants.

Anne Heche had no problems answering questions--about anything. Chatty, vivacious and funny, the 27-year-old actress talked frankly about her romantic relationship with comedian Ellen DeGeneres, her disapproving religious family and her very hot career, including her latest work, "Wag the Dog." It was the journalists who were a little tongue-tied. After all, it's unusual for a Hollywood star to address his or her sexuality without being coy, calculating or closeted. "You know what's so funny?"

The diminutive Anne Heche rules over the rainy Vancouver set of "Men in Trees" by the sheer speed of her movements, darting across the soundstage, chatting with the crew and drinking Red Bull, which she did not appear to need. And when she sat for an interview in her trailer, this declaration sounded like one word: "I had a dream, and my dream was to move after 'Grey's Anatomy.'

For months, the public had been gearing up for Wednesday night's episode of "Ellen" during which Ellen DeGeneres' alter ego would become the first openly gay lead character on network TV. Last week, another plot twist was added to the mix: Anne Heche, the 27-year-old co-star of the No. 1 movie, "Volcano," publicly announced that she was the comedian's mate.

Four years ago, you could have called Anne Heche crazy. Why not? That's what the tabloids took to calling her, and it's what she called herself: "Call Me Crazy" is the title of the 2001 memoir she wrote, she said, to purge herself of her childhood demons and split personality, the one that led her to abandon her car in Fresno, wearing shorts and a bra, the day after breaking up with Ellen DeGeneres.

Her real speaking voice falls somewhere between the hard Midwestern of her Jessica on HBO's "Hung" and the cool sophisticate, Samantha, she plays in the new film "Spread." Which only makes sense; Anne Heche is from Ohio but has navigated the palms of Hollywood for more than 20 years now since playing good and evil twins on "Another World." Now, at 40, her two current roles are akin to playing two sides of the same woman again. "I thought it was an incredibly sexual role and a challenge to be an 'older woman' in the film," she says of acting opposite Ashton Kutcher in "Spread."

NBC burned off its episodes of the Anne Heche comedy series "Save Me" over the last month, but though it was never given much of a chance, it's ending its run with an eye-catching guest appearance. The ubiquitous Betty White will be appearing as God. The series, which cast Heche as a woman who forms a direct line of communication with God after nearly choking to death on a sandwich, will be ending June 13 with an episode titled "Holier Than Thou," and in it, Heche's character will come face to face with the deity she's been talking to all this time.

In the HBO series "Hung," now in its second season, Anne Heche plays Jessica, the dotty ex-wife of Ray, a football coach ( Thomas Jane) who turns to prostitution so he can afford to rebuild his home after a fire. For Heche, 41, the role caps a career comeback a decade after her much-publicized breakdown and breakup with Ellen DeGeneres. She shares her new life with James Tupper, her former "Men in Trees" co-star, and sons Homer, 8, and Atlas, about a year and a half, in a Mediterranean-style home in Hollywood.

The TV show "Men in Trees" had a brief but memorable run on ABC in 2006-08, and it led to some good things in star James Tupper's life. First, there's his relationship with "Trees" costar Anne Heche, with whom he shares a home in Venice with kids Homer, 7, and Atlas, 7 months. The show also led to his new series on NBC, the medical drama "Mercy" (Wednesdays at 8 p.m.). Check out what the "Trees" alums do with a weekend off, and they don't even have to leave the neighborhood. Walking the town We love walking down to 3 Square Cafe & Bakery on Abbot Kinney for breakfast or lunch.

Given that it's set in Alaska and built around a will-they-won't-they delayed romance between a high-strung city mouse and an earthy country mouse, it's hard not to think of "Northern Exposure" when watching ABC's new Anne Heche vehicle, "Men in Trees." Or, indeed, of a long string of motion pictures, going all the way back to "It Happened One Night," in which a rough-hewn man rubs up against a sophisticated woman. (And of course there is Tarzan, the original man in a tree.
