Bits 'n' Pieces: Priscilla, more Joan, and of course (!) John Schneider

- Priscilla Presley is the latest vintage TV star to take to the dance floor on ABC. Our own third and final Jenna Wade of "Dallas" will hopefully stride-rightly in the next season of "Dancing With the Stars." The action begins March 17, and Presley has some stiff competition for attention: actress Marlee Matlin will be the first deaf dancer on the show. BRB's own local newspaper, The Atlanta Journal-Constitution, has the story.

- We couldn't just stop at that cute little Joan Collins photo linked up yesterday. We found another one, this time at ZoomWallpapers.com, from the grand opening night at the Third Annual Los Angeles Italia Film, Fashion and Art Festival.

- Actor Bob Ginnaven, who popped up in some 1981 episodes of "Dallas," has died. Ginnaven, 71, whose character name was Bob on "Dallas," also worked in local television in his hometown of Little Rock, Arkansas. ArkansasBusiness.com has more.

- In the "happened upon on the Internet" category, this sweet little 2004 story on John Schneider, our own Bo Duke of "The Dukes of Hazzard," sheds some light on his faith. "I want people to know that God is not using me just because I am John Schneider the actor, the celebrity," Schneider told the Christian Reader. "God doesn't really care about that. God has something big for everyone."

- Finally, just for us Bat-fans: a LEGO set featuring the characters we know and love from "Batman: The Animated Series" and its various offshoots. Harley's just darling! ActionTrip.com and Kotaku have the photos.
