SERIES ADDS CHARACTER WHO GETS NO `EXPOSURE'

Anthony Edwards is joining the cast of "Northern Exposure" this season. He'll play a hyperallergic attorney who's forced to live in a toxin-free bubble. With a quirk like that, Edwards' character should fit right in with the rest of the eccentric inhabitants of Cicely, Alaska. This may conjure up memories of a TV movie John Travolta made back in 1976, "The Boy in the Plastic Bubble." But Edwards, best known as Tom Cruise's sidekick in "Top Gun," is discouraging any such comparisons. He told Entertainment Weekly he expects his character will strike up a romance with pilot Maggie (Janine Turner).
