DEAR STACY: Wasn't there supposed to be an "Aquaman" spinoff from "Smallville" starring that hottie Alan Ritchson? Is it happening? — Char T. in Warren, Ohio
DEAR CHAR: No. The "Aquaman" series pilot that starred "Smallville's" Justin Hartley was not picked up and, in fact, has never aired. Former male supermodel Ritchson, whose three-season run in Spike's "Blue Mountain State" concluded in February, is currently busy with the pilot for "Super Fun Night," a prospective CBS show created by "Bridesmaids'" Rebel Wilson, with Conan O'Brien among its producers. According to The Hollywood Reporter, it's about three nerdy female friends on a quest to have fun every Friday night. Ritchson will play the shallow boyfriend of Wilson's character's younger, prettier sister.

DEAR LYDIA: Hunter, who played The Duke's sidekick in "The Searchers" and is also remembered as the original captain of the USS Enterprise, Christopher Pike, on "Star Trek," died as the result of a fall in 1969 at age 42. There were a few mishaps during the weeks leading up to Hunter's death that may have been a factor in his final accident. While filming in Spain, Hunter was injured in an on-set explosion, suffering facial lacerations from broken glass and powder burns.
