forest joins the shield

I've gotten a bunch of emails in recent days about those promos FX is Chiklis running for the next season of "The Shield,'' the ones suggesting that the season (which starts in January) is the "beginning of the end.''

Despite that ominous tagline, FX folk say that doesn't necessarily mean the fifth season of the show will be its last. Still, five years is a healthy
run on cable, there is no deal in place for a sixth season and creator Shawn Ryan has a high-profile new series -- "The Unit'' -- scheduled on CBS for mid-season. Plus Forest Whitaker ("Panic Room'') has signed on to play an Internal Affairs detective assigned to take down Vic Mackey's (Michael Chiklis, above) band of rouges.
