News Roundup: Gossip Girl, One Tree Hill, 90210 and More

25 02 2010
  • Variety confirmed Leighton Meester (Blair, Gossip Girl) will indeed star in the film Oranges.
  • Spoiler alert! One Tree Hill will do some filming in Utah soon and co-producer Kelly Tenney has a post on the SoGoPro blog about scouting locations for it.
  • Dina Meyer (Lucinda, Beverly Hills 90210) will be on NCIS this spring.
  • OK! Magazine has an interview with Shenae Grimes (Annie, 90210) about her passion for fashion.
  • Gillian Zinser (Ivy, 90210) is now a regular on 90210. I wonder if Trevor Donovan (Teddy, 90210) already is and I missed it? He came in first in my poll on this topic and Zinser ranked second.
  • Michael Steger (Navid, The O.C.) appeared on the WPIX Morning News earlier this week. The video has a few spoilers. The accompanying article says his character is “often compared to David Silver from the original series.” Um, thoughts?
  • WPIX also had Tate Donovan (Jimmy, The O.C.) on their show this week.
  • Adam Brody (Seth, The O.C.) is in the new movie Cop Out, which will be in theaters tomorrow.
  • Tomorrow at 2pm, SoapNet will start airing The O.C. from the beginning again. It will also start over Saturday at 8am and Monday at 1pm.
  • Formosa Betrayed, starring James Van Der Beek (Dawson, Dawson’s Creek) will have a limited release tomorrow. The New York Times has an interview with him and has a review of the film.

When I heard the Ivy will be a regular I was very excited because I really like her and hope the writers make her more interesting. I just hope Teddy doesn’t become a regular because he is the worst character on the show to me. But now they have 5 girls and 3 guys… that’s a little off, hopefully they bring in a new guy as a series regular that the audience will like.

About Navid being compared to David, I don’t know. They are both seen as geeky when it first starts out and when I first saw his name before the show premiered my first thought was “Are they trying to modify ‘David’ or something??”! Other than that though, I don’t think they are any more alike than any other pairing of new character to old character. I think that each of the characters on the new show takes something from each of the old characters. Navid is like David because of the above, like Andrea because of his commitment to the newspaper and pride in his ethnic background, like Brandon because of his morals, etc.

Wes: Glad you’re happy about Ivy. Didn’t know you dislike Teddy so much!

Step: Thanks for weighing in. I, too, kept thinking of David when I first learned Navid’s name. lol I’m wondering if they also associate them because of their videocamera use. ::shrug:: Good points about him also having shades of Andrea and Brandon! Usually Andrea is the one I see him compared, too, and he’s said that, too.

You’re welcome! 🙂 Thank you for bringing up the topic! I didn’t think about the video camera use but that’s a really good point-although the quality of video has changed since 1990 lol!

Well it’s not so much that I don’t like Teddy, I just don’t like the fact that Trevor looks so old. If it was an actor that actually looked like he could play a high school student then I might like him a little more but Trevor doesn’t pass as a high school student to me and I don’t know how the casting directors didn’t see that. I guess they just found the first guy with a six pack that was available. I would much rather Ty Collins (Adam) or George Evans (Kellan) to come back.

Gotcha, Wes! Thanks for clarifying. =)
