Fun Fact

10 09 2009

Did you know Penn Badgley (Dan, Gossip Girl) played Brittany Snow’s love interest in John Tucker Must Die?

What I find particularly humorous about this is that on Gossip Girl, Snow played the young version of Lily–aka, the mother to Dan’s on-again, off-again girlfriend!

And, of course, Sophia Bush (Brooke, One Tree Hill) also starred in John Tucker.

To top it all off, Badgley also starred in The Bedford Diaries, where Ernest Waddell, who played Peyton’s brother Derek on One Tree Hill, was his co-star.

Yet another tangled teen drama web of connections!

It’s amazing to me how different he looks. A hairstyle like that changes everything!

Paula appeared on OTH as a the woman on the beach who flirts with Dan. She later comes over, and Deb catches them preparing for dinner. This was before her appearances on The O.C. There’s a handful of minor actors that have appeared on more than one teen drama, but really only 2 or 3 (depending on who you count) that had significant recurring roles on more than one. My favorite example is probably James Van Der Beek and Chad Michael Murray because they starred together on Dawson’s Creek and then on One Tree Hill.

Strange, I was just put that Penn Badgely-Brittany Snow connection together the other day when JTMD was on TV.

Funny. I actually wrote this post a while ago but published it now.

Speaking of young Lily, “Valley Girls” is definitely not being done, right?

Right. The Gossip Girl spin-off is *not* happening. At least no time soon.
