Felicity/Alias fans...a connection between the shows?

OK, we all know JJ Abrams created both shows and Greg Genberg plays on each. On Felicity, he played Sean Blumberg. On Alias, he play Eric Weiss.

Here's a bit of trivia I found today and I'm wondering if JJ Abrams is just being cute or if he's actually making a connection between the shows. Go here and you'll see Eric Weiss' CIA profile. Note anything unusual? His mother's maiden name is...Blumberg.

Is it possible Sean on Felicity was recruited by the CIA in New York, while in college, just like Sydney was recruited? I know it's crazy, but I'm just speculating.

I've read that JJ Abrams would like Keri Russell (Felicity) to show up on Alias sometime. And since Scott Foley (Noel on Felicity) is married to Jennifer Garner (Sydney), it's probable he might show up sometime, too.

Just to get your wheels turning...

They might as well play around, since they both Disney-backed shows. Even though Felicity aired on the WB, it was produced by a Disney owned company, and likewise for Alias. There would be no real conflicts, and I don't think Keri Russel's even doing anyting right now. Scott Speedman and Scott Foley both got new jobs...

Wasn't Jennifer Garner on Felicity as well? Not sure if this has anything to do with the subject. Just curious. :-D

Yeah, she played Noel's old gf. That might make it harder to tie the 2 shows together.

I can just see it now.

Announcer: Next week on Alias...

Arvin: Sydney, I'd like you to meet one of our newest agents... Felicity Porter.

Felicity: Hey! Don't I know you from somewhere?

But everybody knows Hanna was studying music at the Boston Conservatory, not Education at UCLA.

Maybe that's what they wanted us to think...

I don't know, but if Jennifer Garner chops her hair, I'm gonna stop watching Alias.

Or perhaps...

Sydney: Dear Sally, You will not believe what happened today. I met my mom again in federal custody. Ugh. And I had to Sometimes I wish I wasn't a double agent working for the CIA. You get so many bad hair days from those wigs.

What does it matter? Half the time she's wearing a wig anyways.

True. That was just a lame attempt at humor since I don't watch Felicity, but I heard the ratings dove after Keri Russell chopped her hair.

Another obvious one - that horrible love triangle JJ is writing for Will and Vaughn as well! Man JJ, keep it out of the show - this is not Felicity for spies. Who the hell doesn't believe Syd will end up with Vaughn in the end anyways?!
