By B.J. Hammerstein

Good news "Spartacus: Bloods and Sand" fans. Actress Erin Cummings, who played the title character's wife Sura in the first season of the Starz series, will be joining the cast of "Detroit 1-8-7" as a cast regular. Cummings will play the primary medical examiner the "1-8-7" homicide detectives work with during their investigations, ABC confirmed today with the Free Press. But there's more: Ala Drew Barrymore's locally-made film "Whip It!" and our very own real-life sports stars, the Detroit Derby Girls, Cummings' character will moonlight after work as a roller derby player.

Cummings comes to "1-8-7," the first ever network prime-time series to be fully produced in Detroit, a graduate of the University of North Texas with a degree in journalism. Her acting credits include "Star Trek: Enterprise," "Charmed," "Dante's Cove," "The Bold and the Beautiful," "Cold Case," and "Dollhouse."

AUSXIP Charity Auction Final Donation Amounts

As many of you know the AUSXIP Charity Auction was held in March and I have the final amounts that were raised. This figure blows me away and every time I look at it, I am AMAZED at the generosity of you, the fans. What's even more incredible is that with the global financial situation as it is, you still dug deep and it's an incredible gift. It's not just the financial support but also the moral support from those who couldn't donate but who supported the auction and promoted it. You guys are just the best!


Lucy's charity is The Starship Foundation which raises money for Starship Hospital in Auckland.

Total amount raised: $13,110


Renee's charity is The Renee O'Connor Outreach Fund. Renee allocates the money to a worthy cause and this year it was to raise funds for the the earthquakes in Haiti/Chili.

Total amount raised: $3,500


This year we added Crystal's chosen charity and a way to raise money for the half marathon Crystal was running (held over the weekend) for the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society.

Total amount raised: $1,000

That gives us a grand total of $17,610
