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

27 02 2009
  • Rebecca Rand Kirshner Sinclair (such a moutful!) signed a two-year contract to be the creative head behind 90210.  Guess they’re not only planning on a season two, but a third one as well!
  • Sinclair told Entertainment Weekly she’s open to having Brian Austin Green (David, Beverly Hills 90210) come on the show but she doesn’t want it to look like a “stunt.”
  • Star Magazine is reporting that Brittany Snow (American Dreams) has been cast to play Lily in the Gossip Girl spin-off.  Star, however, is a tabloid that most often gets things wrongs.  So until I see confirmation elsewhere, there is no way I am going to believe it.  Coincidentally, Snow is who Michael Ausiello said should get the part.
  • According to their official site, No Doubt will appear on the May 11th episode of Gossip Girl.  This marks their second appearance on a teen drama, the first being Dawson’s Creek.
  • BuddyTV asks some really interesting questions about the next episode of One Tree Hill (which doesn’t air til mid-March).
  • One of the local news stations in North Carolina says One Tree Hill’s seventh season renewal is good for Wilmington’s economy.
  • Busy Philipps (Audrey, Dawson’s Creek) will likely be cast in a new Courteney Cox show called Cougar Town.

Spoiler: Ask Ausiello

Question: Were you suggesting that Kristen Bell was in the running to play a young Lily in the Gossip Girl spin-off? — Tara
I was not. I’m actually going to keep quiet about which actress I was referring to until there’s something solid to report. Don’t want to jinx things. Having said that, I’d like to take this opportunity to nominate American Dreams ingénue Brittany Snow for the role. Not only does she have “young Kelly Rutherford” plastered across her forehead, but as she proved on her much-missed NBC drama, she has a timeless quality. (If she can pull off the ’60s, the ’80s oughta be breeze.) Plus, anything that keeps her away from Prom Night 2 has to be a good thing, right? If you agree, please, say so in the comments section. It’s no fun being out on this limb all alone.

Question: Please, I need some Gossip Girl scoop on Blair and Chuck! — Carla
Okay, but I have to warn you, it’s going to make you very angry. Leighton Meester’s real-life beau, Sebastian Stan, will be reprising his role as the shifty Carter Baizen. He’ll appear in the next two original episodes and, per my source, his mission is twofold: to mess with Chuck and hook up with Blair. Don’t shoot the messenger!

Question: I am leaving for France tomorrow for nine days. Could you please give me some Gossip Girl to hold me over? — Rachel
You know Serena’s new grifter beau, Gabriel (Armie Hammer)? She’s met him before — only she can’t remember where or when.
