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

21 04 2010
  • The CW sent out a press release of upcoming sweeps highlights, which Zap2it handily categorized by show. They left some things out, but all of it should be considered spoilers so consider this fair warning. If you guys want, I’ll post it all, as given in the release, in a Spoiler post. Let me know.
  • There is “We Are One” campaign to further encourage The CW to renew One Tree Hill.
  • Examiner.com has an article on the showcase Jana Kramer (Alex, One Tree Hill) had last week.
  • I’ve heard speculation for a while now that Hilarie Burton (Peyton, One Tree Hill) has been dating actor Jeffrey Dean Morgan. With no legitimate outlet reporting it, I didn’t post anything on it. But now we’ve got confirmation: the duo appeared on the red carpet last night for his movie The Losers.
  • Kenzie Dalton, girlfriend of Chad Michael Murray (Lucas, One Tree Hill), wrote on her blog that CMM has a graphic novel titled Everlast coming  out this summer.
  • How To Make It In America, starring Bryan Greenberg (Jake, One Tree Hill), has been renewed for a second season on HBO.
  • Bob Levy (executive producer, Gossip Girl) has been named executive vice president of film at Alloy.
  • ABC is reportedly developing a daytime talk show for Tori Spelling (Donna, Beverly Hills 90210) and a “co-host to be determined.”
  • Eric Mabius (Dean Hess, The O.C.) has been cast in Outcasts, a BBC series.
  • Jeffrey Stepakoff (writer-producer, Dawson’s Creek) is returning to Wilmington April 30 for a book signing to support Fireworks Over Toccoa. Have you read my interview with him?




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

7 12 2009
  • Jennie Garth (Kelly, Beverly Hills 90210) and husband Peter Facinelli are on the cover of PEOPLE’s special holiday extra edition. PEOPLE.com has a video from the photo shoot.
  • Tori Spelling (Donna, Beverly Hills 90210) and mom Candy Spelling have reportedly reconciled.
  • Luke Perry (Dylan, Beverly Hills 90210) is featured in a new video for The Killers. Interestingly enough (but I’m sure not purposefully), it somewhat echoes the season 5 episode where Dylan revisits his past lives.
  • Perry, Jason Priestley (Brandon, Beverly Hills 90210), Chace Crawford (Nate, Gossip Girl), Chad Michael Murray (Lucas, One Tree Hill), Joshua Jackson (Pacey, Dawson’s Creek) and Benjamin McKenzie (Ryan, The O.C.) made AOL’s list of the Top 50 Teen Idols. Perry ranks the best at number 7, while CMM is at 13, Crawford came in at 17 with Priestley right after at 18 and Jackson sits at number 20 while McKenzie is at 31. Also on the list is John Schneider who recently played Liam’s step-dad on 90210.
  • Ryan Eggold (Ryan, 90210) is included in PEOPLE.com’s Sexy at Every Age photo gallery.
  • AnnaLynne McCord (Naomi, 90210) was on The Tonight Show last week and Jessica Stroup (Silver, 90210) was on Rachael Ray.
  • Greg Vaughan (Cliff, Beverly Hills 90210) tweeted that he’s filmed 3 episodes for his appearance on the new 90210.
  • If you missed Blake Lively (Serena, Gossip Girl) on SNL last week, here are some of the promos and recaps: EW.com, EW.com again and Zap2it.
  • Zap2it has a photo gallery called “The Quotable Blair Waldorf,” which feature quotes and photos from season 3.
  • OTHPodcast.com has been revamped.
  • There’s photos on Facebook of James Laffety (Nathan, One Tree Hill) and Robert Buckley (Clay, One Tree Hill) in character for The Legend of Hell’s Gate: An Ameican Conspiracy.
  • If you live near New York City, Kate Voegele (Mia, One Tree Hill) will be at the lighting of the NYSE Christmas tree this Thursday.




Random Thought

25 07 2009

The CW’s page for One Tree Hill still heavily features Chad Michael Murray (Lucas) and Hilarie Burton (Peyton).

Wonder when they’re going to put up pics with them edited out or the official season 7 cast picture.

There were some photos floating around the internet recently (like this one from The CW upfront), but those were season 5/6 pictures photoshopped to just feature Sophia Bush (Brooke), James Lafferty (Nathan) and Bethany Joy Galeotti (Haley). I want to see new stuff!

And I want to see The CW further acknowledge a future without CMM and Burton.  Not because I’m happy with that decision–I’m clearly not–but because they made it and they should support it.

Are they just lazy?  Do they always wait til it gets closer to the premieres to release new promo pictures? Or are they trying to keep OTH the way it was?

Start speculating!

RELEVANT QUESTIONS–DON’T READ IF YOU DON’T WANT TO KNOW!!!

Heather A. in Montgomery, N.Y.: With the Emmy noms out, I was wondering why One Tree Hill is never nominated? It’s just as good as those other shows that are nominated. For that matter, there are hardly any CW shows nominated ever. Just want to know why that is.
Oh, aren’t you sweet. What can we say? It just wouldn’t be fair to put One Tree Hill in the same categories as 30 Rock and Mad Men. That said, Watch With Kristin’s CW Awards return in December to fill in the gaps left by the Emmys and to honor the genuine awesomeness that is Supernatural and Gossip Girl.

Vanessa in Toronto: Is it true Chuck and Blair are gonna try to have a threesome on Gossip Girl? Tell me they won’t go through with it and that it might bring some sexy time for these two? I think we need it as much as they do.
You guys come up with all the best rumors! Our sources tell us there’s no threesome between Chuck, Blair and a third player to be named later, but there are a lot of C&B sexcapades happening in Gossip Girl season three. And white-hot angry sex is on the list.

Kelly in Montana: Any scoop on Olivia and Dan’s relationship on Gossip Girl?
The newest fabulous Upper East Sider, Olivia (Hilary Duff), likes that Dan doesn’t recognize her as a famous movie star.

Clarice in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil: Any news about Jenny on Gossip Girl?
Jenny’s going to have to defend her queendom against the mean girls. Makes sense. Mean girls don’t usually surrender the spotlight so easily.

Adam in N.Y.:  Anything on Carter Baizen since Sebastian Stan’s show Kings is kaput? Is he back on Gossip Girl? He’s shady.
Shady Carter is going to be hooking up with Serena! Yes, Serena van der Woodsen and Carter Baizen are going to try to make a go of it in season three of Gossip Girl. Forgive us if we’re not optimistic about their long-term prospects.

Zoe in Allentown, Pa.: Almost every episode of One Tree Hill started and ended with a voice-over by Chad Michael Murray. With CMM leaving, who is going to be delivering the dramatic words of OTH wisdom?
The most likely scenario is that the OTH voice-over will rotate between the regular characters every week, but nothing’s been decided for sure yet.





Random Thought

18 07 2009

I know I’ve touched on this before but it’s something I have trouble getting out of my mind when I watch certain One Tree Hill episodes.

I will never understand how Sophia Bush (Brooke) and Chad Michael Murray (Lucas) acted together after they divorced.

How do you pretend to be in love with someone when that someone broke your heart?

How do you kiss each other and not feel what you used to feel?

How do you fight with them and not feel there’s truth in what you’re saying?

Yes, it’s just “acting” and “pretend.”  And, yes, both Sophia and Chad have moved on. But everyone’s human with real emotions and something like this has got to mess with them.

I can’t believe I’m saying this but maybe for their sake, it’s best that CMM left the show?

RELEVANT QUESTIONS–DON’T READ IF YOU DON’T WANT TO KNOW!!!

KEMattison via Twitter: Will Chad Michael Murray and Hilarie Burton be making any guest appearances on One Tree Hill this season?
Our sources tell us it’s doubtful that we’ll see CMM or H.M. again on One Tree Hill, but perhaps in the finale.

Aprilnich via Twitter: Will Brooke and Julian last on One Tree Hill?
TV diva’s Magic 8-Ball says: “Signs point to yes.”

Mary in Seattle: Is there going to be a time jump again this year on One Tree Hill?
Nothing as drastic as last season, but One Tree Hill does leap forward a year when the show returns this fall.
