Susan Guyett's "Talk of Our Town" column includes an update on Powell, the actor and 1998 DePauw graduate, who returned to the area to celebrate Thanksgiving with family and friends.

"If Powell's name doesn't ring a bell, his face probably does," writes Guyett. "He's in a Verizon Wireless commercial that runs constantly, he played Hoss Cartwright in the popular PAX series Ponderosa, and he guest-starred in shows like Cold Case and Without a Trace. He'll also be duking it out with Oscar winner Timothy Hutton in an upcoming episode Drew Powell The Office Steve Carell.jpgof the new TNT series Leverage. And that just scratches the surface of Powell's resume, which seems to get stronger each year. Powell is currently working on a film called Going Under, which he co-wrote and will co-star in with actor Matt Carmody, who played his older brother, Adam, in Ponderosa."
