Wanna know what’s coming up on your favorite show? Tuesday is tease-day at Fancast, and MattMtvguy@gmail.com is the place to send your questions. Here now the scoop!

Can you get some scoop on ‘Grey’s Anatomy‘s creepy April? She is nuts!!! – EllenPIsTweet via Twitter
And when ‘Grey’s returns with fresh episodes this Thursday, Derek’s gal Friday (played by ‘Everwood’ alum Sarah Drew) will be as creepy as ever – so much so that people will start noticing. Hmmm.

We’ve heard a lot about the “game-changing” ‘Grey’s Anatomy‘ finale. Any hints as to what’s going to happen? Is Seattle Grace crumbling to the ground? – Free
No joke, that was the first thought that came to my mind as Shonda Rhimes got to talking up the two-hour finale on Twitter. And then there’s this tease from ABC: “Seattle Grace Hospital is hit with a crisis like no other in its history,” after which “Cristina and Meredith’s surgical skills are put to the ultimate test.” Maybe creepy April time-traveled to ‘Lost’s “Black Rock,” grabbed some dynamite and….

I hate hiatuses! I’ll take any crumb you’ve got on ‘Grey’s‘! – COforever via Twitter
Three crumbs is what I’ve got: McSteamy becomes an actual grandfather; Teddy’s vulnerable (and presumably bikini-waxed) side is revealed when her job is thrown into jeopardy; and things only get messier for Mark and Lexie.

Tell me something – anything – about the ‘Vampire Diaries‘ finale. Please, please, please, with a cherry on top? – Ariel
How about a tiny little something on how the season finale actually and truly ends? Can you handle it? OK, proceed to read: A source tells me the very last face you will see before the screen fades to black belongs to… Elena. Will she be screaming in agony as she is buried alive? Laughing at a good joke? Overcome with ecstasy as she couples with Damon? This, we do not know.

‘NCIS’ Enlists ‘Housewives’ and ‘Numb3rs’ Vets

Do you have any new scoop on the ‘Good Wife‘ finale? – Loni
You mean other than the mondo spoiler Christine Baranski let slip at last week’s Paley Center event? Boy, that was a moment Josh Charles will never let her live down. Well, if you follow ‘Angel’s Amy Acker on Twitter, you know she just shot a guest spot for ‘TGW.’ I have since confirmed that she is playing Alicia’s client in the season-ending episode. (Amy also stars on ABC’s ‘Happy Town,’ premiering Wednesday.) Speaking of Whedonverse alums….

Aww, I miss Queen C! Please tell me we’ll see Charisma Carpenter soon in something besides the Butterfinger campaign? – bethaseman via Twitter
On the small screen, CC is finishing talks to reprise her role of Omega Chi national rep Tegan Walker when ABC Family’s ‘Greek‘ returns for its fourth (and likely final) season later this year. “It looks like I am going back, yeah,” she tells me. “I love them over there!” She also has the films ‘The Expendables’ (August) and ‘Psychosis’ (Halloween) on the way.

Any scoops on ‘Smallville‘s Chlollie? – ChlollieGAWT via Twitter
From my Q&A with exec producer Brian Peterson, here are nine extra words on the future of the Chloe/Oliver romance: “‘No strings attached’ always gets complicated, so there will be some interesting revelations about that relationship coming out of the finale, going into next season.”

Got any scoop on the return of ‘Smallville‘s Perry White? – Nilan
The iconic ‘Daily Planet’ newsman (played by Michael McKean) resurfaces in this season’s penultimate episode, and he’s got a familiar someone on his arm – Clark’s mom. “It’s a fun ‘Look who’s coming to dinner’ sort of episode,” says Brian Peterson, “with Martha (Annette O’Toole) and Perry entering the picture right when Clark and Lois are having a bit of a rough go.” As for Mr. White finally meeting Ms. Lane, Peterson promises “some great Lois-Perry action” as the two chase the same big story.

‘Glee’ Eyes Billy Joel, Courtney Love For Madonna-Like Eps

On iTunes there is a ‘Glee‘ track of Jonathan Groff performing Madonna’s “Burning Up.” Will that be a deleted scene for the Season 1 DVD? – Claire
That would have been brills, but I hear that was simply a “bonus” track for iTunes, and is not from any filmed performance. Drat!

I saw #britneyspearsglee trending on Twitter the day after “The Power of Madonna” aired. Is an all-Britney episode in the cards? – Lawrence
Britney’s manager is largely responsible for triggering that Twitter tag, and ‘Glee’ boss Ryan Murphy told EW.com that he’s open to the idea. But a well-placed music biz insider tells me that any such episode likely won’t happen until Brit is hot to hawk her next album.

Do you know who the writers are for the ‘CSI: NY‘ finale this season, and also the Mac-centric/Peyton returns episode? – Jayne
‘CSI: NY’ exec producer/headwriter Pam Veasey penned the ‘Rear Window’-y May 19th episode in which Claire Forlani returns as Peyton Driscoll. The following week, the season-ending “Vacation Getaway” comes to you courtesy of Trey Callaway (who last wrote “Pot of Gold”) and Zachary Reiter (“Uncertainty Rules”).

Scoop: Oscar Nominee Juliette Lewis Visits TNT’s ‘Memphis’

I’m worried about ‘90210‘s Liam and Naomi. Are they going to be OK? Or is Liam going to seek comfort from Annie after Liefest 2010? – Dany
It’s not merely Naomi’s lie that will push Liam in Annie’s direction. Rather, those two are also destined to bond over secrets they each have been keeping from everyone else in their lives. P.S. Do you really think Liam and Nay belong together?

What’s going to happen next for Rigsby and Van Pelt on ‘The Mentalist‘? They’re my favorite TV couple and I was so heartbroken when they broke up. – Michela
Yeah, new boss lady Hightower is a real… er, couple breaker-upper. Alas, I hear that you may have to sweat out the summer to find out if your fave duo managed to “reconnect” on the sly.

Do you have any new details on Rob Lowe‘s ‘Parks and Recreation‘ character? – Denise
For starters, he’s playing an auditor named Chris who soon arrives on the scene to save Pawnee from bankruptcy. Also, remember how there was talk of him being a possible love interest for Leslie? Well, by the start of Season 3 Chris is an actual love interest for someone else.
