News Roundup: 90210, The O.C., Gossip Girl and One Tree Hill

28 10 2009
  • The Los Angeles Times has “five burning questions” on 90210. Spoilers already revealed the answers to numbers 3 and 4 but it’s still worth a read.
  • Greg Vaughan (Cliff, Beverly Hills 90210) tweeted that he’s “making his return to the new 90210.”  I guess that means he’ll be playing Cliff?  Who knows, though, considering 90210 2.0’s inconsistency.  Last month, Vaughan was fired from General Hospital.
  • So apparently AnnaLynne McCord (Naomi, 90210) and Kellan Lutz (George, 90210) are together!
  • Charles Rosin (executive producer, Beverly Hills 90210) did a blog post about the progress of his current project, showbizzle, and linked back to the interview we did together.
  • Brian Austin Green (David, Beverly Hills 90210) was also a victim of the same thieves responsible for robbing Rachel Bilson (Summer, The O.C.) and other celebrities.
  • Candy Spelling (wife of Aaron and mother to Tori and Randy of Beverly Hills 90210 fame) will reportedly appear on a reality show being made by Ryan Seacrest.
  • According to TVGuide.com, Gossip Girl is in danger of cancellation.
  • In interviews with Entertainment Weekly, Kenny Ortega says he has confidence in Chace Crawford (Nate, Gossip Girl) appearing in the Footloose remake (even though he’s no longer directing it) and co-star Julianne Hough called him a “cutie.”
  • The CW Source has podcasts for last week’s Gossip Girl and One Tree Hill.

  • I have decided that future Trivia Nights will only be held on Mondays and Tuesdays *when the episodes are repeats.*  If there’s a new episode, there won’t be trivia.  If it’s a repeat, I’ll host trivia.  This seemed like the most fair and least-stressful way to do it.  During long hiatuses, however, such as the summer off-season, we will go back to weekly games.  I will always post about a Trivia Night the morning of, so keep your eyes peeled, and I’ll give a heads-up in advance whenever possible.
  • Check out Mark Schwahn’s preview of One Tree Hill’s season premiere.
  • Taylor Momsen (Jenny, Gossip Girl) and her band Pretty Reckless played a show in New York tonight as part of Fashion’s Night Out.
  • Much of the Gossip Girl cast attended a party yesterday to celebrate the upcoming launch of the new GG-inspired clothing line.
  • PEOPLE.com has a photo gallery of Tori Spelling (Donna, Beverly Hills 90210) and her family.
  • Candy Spelling, Tori’s mother, wrote me that she liked my interview with Randy (her son and Tori’s brother).
  • Korbi has a video interview with Ryan Eggold (Ryan, 90210).
  • Joshua Jackson (Pacey, Dawson’s Creek) is on the cover of  the new issue of Entertainment Weekly. (Coincidentally, he was also on the cover this week back in 1998–more on that tomorrow).  He says his show Fringe “has been the total opposite of my Dawson’s Creek experience.”
  • The Vampire Diaries is being described as “Twlight for the 90210 and Dawson’s Creek crowd” and an “updated Dawson’s Creek with fangs.” There’s more comparisons here.
  • I thought this was a funny observation from Obama’s press conference last night: “The reaction to Obama on the part of some of his partisan foes is now making Bush derangement syndrome look like a hot and heavy Dawson’s Creek romance.”
  • Mischa Barton (Marissa, The O.C.) has a new post on her blog–her first one since July.
  • TVGuide.com has an interview with Jeri Ryan (Charlotte, The O.C.) on her role in Leverage.
