Today’s portion of Zap2it’s TV snacks include one of our favorite characters from “Lost” landing a gig on one of our most beloved shows, another season of work for Betty White and Chris Harrison, and some new faces join up with a couple HBO shows.
NBC’s “Community” is upping the ante on its season-ending sequel to Season 1’s paintball episode, “Modern Warfare.” “Lost” alum, Josh Holloway, who played the cocky conman, Sawyer, is closing his deal to appear in the two-part finale playing a mysterious stranger who appears on campus. We’re pretty sure Jeff (Joel McHale) is going to hate him. [EW]
Betty White is a survivor and so are her “Hot in Cleveland” costars as TV Land announces it has picked up the series for a third season. The network has ordered 22 episodes, which will start shooting this summer. The show about three L.A. transplants is the network’s highest-rated series for the network averaging 3.2 million viewers. It was nominated for two SAG awards and White took home one for Best Actress in a Comedy Series. [TV Land]
“NCIS” has found the man to play Ziva’s (Cote de Pablo’s) boyfriend. “Without a Trace’s” Enrique Murciano will play CIA agent Ray Cruz for a multiple episode arc starting with this season’s twentieth episode. [TVLine]

“Saturday Night Live” has lined up hosts for a couple future shows. Zach Galifianakis will take his second turn as host on March 12 with musical guest Jessie J, and Elton John will be both the host and musical guest (with Leon Russell) for an April show. [NBC/Hollywood Reporter]

ABC’s “Bachelor Pad,” which pits former contestants against each other for prizes and a second chance at love, has been renewed for another season. Season 2 will begin airing in August and casting is currently underway. [EW]
HBO is staffing up on “Hung” with two new recurring hires: Stephen Amell (“The Vampire Diaries”) will play a rival gigolo for Ray (Thomas Jane) and Levin Rambin (“One Tree Hill”) will play a new love interest for him. “Boardwalk Empire” has also added stage actress Heather Lind for a recurring role as Katy, the maid.
