DEPOSITPHOTOS Sara Rue DEPOSITPHOTOS Q: Can you tell me what Sara Rue has been up to? I loved watching her on “Bones,” but now that it’s over, I wonder what she’s doing next.

— Hailey H., via email

A: Sara has been going nonstop since breaking into the biz when she was only 8 years old. She has starred in a number of series, including “Popular,” “Less Than Perfect,” “The Big Bang Theory,” “Malibu Country” and “Rules of Engagement.” On May 27 at 9 p.m. ET/PT, you can catch her in the Hallmark original movie called “All for Love,” where Sara plays romance novelist Jo Parker, whose latest book about a woman falling in love with a Navy SEAL falls flat with her publisher. They send her to boot camp for research; the retired SEAL (played by Steve Bacic) who runs the camp is gorgeous; and we can assume that romance ensues.

Q: I keep reading things about “The Looming Tower,” and I can’t wait for it to premiere. Can you give me any scoops about it?

—Tyler W., Ann Arbor, Mich.

A: Based on Lawrence Wright’s Pulitzer Prize-winning 9/11 expose, “The Looming Tower” will air in 10 episodes on Hulu. It traces the rising threat of Osama Bin Laden and al- Qaida, and takes a controversial look at how the rivalry between the CIA and FBI may have inadvertently set the stage for the tragedy of 9/11 and the war in Iraq. Aside from such Hollywood heavy hitters as Jeff Daniels and Peter Sarsgaard, it was recently announced that Alec Baldwin has joined the cast as CIA director George Tenet.

Q: I loved your interview with Jason Isaacs earlier this year. Can you tell me what else he has coming up?

— Jill S., via email

A: Jason has been chosen to captain the next starship, playing Capt. Lorca in “Star Trek: Discovery” for CBS All Access. According to “Deadline,” the series “will feature a new ship, new characters and new missions, while embracing the same ideology and hope for the future that inspired a generation of dreamers and doers.” ¦
