Eric Winter to Return to 'Brothers & Sisters'
It has only been a few weeks since CBS' disastrous musical drama, Viva Laughlin, was taken off the air, but series actor Eric Winter is already set to return to the small screen.
According to TV Guide's Michael Aussielo, Winter is gearing up to tape scenes for the 11th episode of ABC's Brothers & Sisters. The 31-year-old actor is reprising his role as Jason McCallister, the brother of Senator Robert McCallister (Rob Lowe) who becomes romantically involved with lawyer Kevin Walker (Matthew Rhys).
"He's coming back for a few episodes — for now," executive producer Greg Berlanti told TV Guide while at the writers' strike on Tuesday.
When viewers last saw Eric Winter's Jason on Brothers & Sisters, he, an ordained minister, left for Malaysia to serve as a missionary for poverty-stricken people. In his absence, Rhys' Kevin found himself struggling to remain monogamous, especially when his ex-boyfriend, Scotty Wandell (Luke MacFarlane), re-entered the picture.
While Eric Winter's return to Brothers & Sisters signals a new love triangle, Ausiello said that by the end of the episode, aptly entitled “Missionary Imposition,” fans will know “where Kevin's loyalty lies.”
While Winter's comeback may give viewers the impression that the strike is not affecting ABC's Brothers & Sisters, reality says otherwise. As of this time, the show only has two episodes left to film, with Winter returning to the set a week from Thursday.
Moreover, the highly anticipated eight-episode arc of Emmy nominee Danny Glover on the show may be cut short due to the strike, which the 61-year-old actor fully supports.
Glover, who plays an advisor hired by Kitty (Calista Flockhart) to help Robert's campaign, told TV Guide last week that he has only filmed three of his eight episodes. He also said that since he has not worked on television for a long time, he doesn't “know how it works, with rewrites. There seem to be a lot of rewrites. But I don't know how it works.”
Although Glover has only shot a few of his episodes on Brothers & Sisters, it is clear that his character has grown on him.
"I like his sensibility. He's funny, he's witty, he's basically a good guy," he said.

||Excellent news! But I still don't get how they're going to produce these episodes with the strike still going on...|

They can produce all they want, as long as they have the scripts to work with. And they have 2 more left.

Could you REALLY be anymore obvious, ass?! It's obvious Kevin won't end up with the minister. The writers are just GAGA for Scotty and Kevin. I don't know why. Don't get me wrong, Scotty's revamp worked for the character, and perhaps the Kevtty pairing, but I don't see why they have to just close the book on anyone else.
Face it, in Berlanti's eyes, it's Kevtty FOREVER. Oh, but don't worry, they'll send Scotty packing again. He'll come back though. Again and again. He'll be the "Big" of "Brothers and Sisters." Watch!!!

||^ I agree, JSF. I like Kevin with Jason SOO much more than I like him with Scotty, for so many reasons.|
