Nip/Tuck ~ Scar and Karma Season 6 Spots Have Arrived

Goodness me, in the last 24 hours so many sources have fed me so many Nip/Tuck items it feels like Thanksgiving in September. Before i share the bounty, i have to address a beef i have with some of the reportage of the mainstream press. Season 6 is not, repeat NOT the final Nip/Tuck season. i didn't think it needed clarification after FX pres John Landgraf and Nip/Tuck creator Ryan Murphy had stated it weeks ago, but apparently not everyone is receiving the message. So for those who are having trouble with reading retention and comprehension i will reiterate: Nip/Tuck is contracted to run on FX until the year 2011. That's 3 years from now, which means that the final season will be their 8th [eighth] not the 6th [sixth]. O.K. mainstream---Get it? Got it? Good!

And now on to our feast. The reps of the thesps who portray of our favorite plastic surgeons are working on getting them a pay raise. $250,000.00* each, per ep, is what they are reckoning to be fair compensation for FX to provide Dylan Walsh and Julian McMahon. me, i say they are worth every penny of that amount and then some. Also, purportedly Mr.McMahon was a no-show last week for a set wardrobe call. True or not [i have not been able to confirm] since the Nip/Tuck scripts often require him to appear au naturel, that hardly seems problematic ;-). In all seriousness if he did not arrive on-set, i'm guessing it was due to a legitimate reason and not some kind of gamesmanship to force FX' hand for the higher salary.

As of 9~30~08 the amount per Nip/Tuck episode Mr.McMahon and Mr.Walsh's representatives are negotiating for is purportedly $310,000.00 each. i still say, worth every penny.

In other Nip/Tuck news, per a Michael Ausiello exclusive, Katee Sackhoff has bailed and Rose McGowan is slipping on the latex gloves.

[The server for the EW video announcing Rose McGowan as an addition to the cast of Nip/Tuck has unfortunately proven to be balky, so until it's bandwidth and other issues are resolved it has been removed from this post.]

Of course the items i am most thankful for are the coveted season 6 spots. They are titled Scar and Karma. Each are a total running time of :32 seconds. Check them out below.

FX has created an extended version of the Nip/Tuck Season 6 Karma Promo, Running time :62seconds
