Answer: The CBS drama had its last new telecast in 2009, and I have no reason to believe it will be back.
As for LaPaglia, he has been quite busy. Last fall he was off-Broadway in Douglas McGrath's play "Checkers," playing Richard Nixon in 1952; "Law & Order: Criminal Intent's" Kathryn Erbe played Nixon's wife, Pat.
In 2010, he starred in a revival of the farce "Lend Me a Tenor," directed by Stanley Tucci; in fact, before "Without a Trace," he was a Tony Award winner for his work in "A View From the Bridge."
He has lent his voice to films like "Happy Feet Two" as well as appearing on camera in productions including the recent "Underground: The Julian Assange Story" and "Mental," both films for his native Australia.
He had also signed for Quentin Tarantino's "Django Unchained," but dropped out, reportedly because delays on "Django" risked keeping him from making "Underground."
Nor is he done with TV; last year he starred in "Americana," the pilot that was not picked up. At the time, LaPaglia was considering three pilots on three different networks.
