News Roundup: One Tree Hill, Gossip Girl and 90210

25 10 2009

  • Naley (One Tree Hill) are included in E! Online’s TV Couples We Love gallery. Blair and Chuck (Gossip Girl) are included as well.
  • The remake of Footloose, set to star Chace Crawford (Nate, Gossip Girl), has lost its director.  The film is supposedly “still on track,” though.
  • EW.com named 90210 one of the most improved shows of the season.  I completely disagree but whatevs.
  • The Oct. 23 issue of Entertainment Weekly has a photo of Jennie Garth (Kelly, Beverly Hills 90210) and Shannen Doherty (Brenda, Beverly Hills 90210) from a recent EW-sponsored event.

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

Question: Now that Mercy will begin on NBC earlier than expected, will Michelle Trachtenberg still be able to fulfill her three-episode arc on Gossip Girl? –Parm
Ausiello:
Unfortunately for Blair, yes, she will. The onetime Queen Bee will have a hard enough time adjusting to college life. Georgina’s arrival as her roommate in episode 2 compounds her misery tenfold.

Question: I would love the scoop on just how much The CW pays you every time you cover Gossip Girl. I don’t doubt that the show has followers, but the coverage EW is giving it has gotten ridiculous! —Frank
Ausiello:
Oooooh, that reminds me: A major Gossip guy decides not to go to college very early in the season. Take your best guess to the comments!

Question: Chuck-Blair scoopage would be delightful! –LH
Ausiello:
Look for C and B to take an unorthodox approach to warding off the seven-week itch.





Breaking News: Brian Austin Green May Join OTH!

1 06 2009

Teen drama worlds are colliding again!

Beverly Hills 90210’s Brian Austin Green, who played David, may join One Tree Hill for its seventh season.

The Hollywood Reporter says he is in talks to play Clayton, the previously announced new character that will be Nathan’s agent.  EW’s Ausiello says “it’s virtually a done deal.”

I’ve been hoping BAG would pop up on the new 90210 to repair his relationship with Tori Spelling’s Donna.  I never imagined in my wildest dreams that he’d end up on a different teen drama!

Thoughts?!

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

Question: What does the future hold for Annie and Liam on 90210? –Stephanie
Ausiello:
Based on the finale, a straitjacket and an STD, respectively.

Question: Could you please give us some juicy scoop on the Gossip Girl finale? It would really make my day. –Kari
Ausiello:
One of the cliffhangers involves Georgina … and Dan, and another Blair and Chuck. Actually, the latter is less a cliffhanger and more a itisaboutfreakingtime. (Real word. No lie. Look it up if you don’t believe me!)

Question: Bummed about Chad and Hilarie leaving One Tree Hill. At least tell me Lucas and Peyton get a proper sendoff in Monday’s finale. –Tracey
Ausiello:
According to EW’s Jennifer Armstrong, who screened the finale yesterday, Leyton “definitely comes to a natural resting place that feels right for them and ties up their story nicely; however, they do not get an actual sendoff of any kind.” Speaking of Chad and Hilarie’s exit, in the very near future I’ll be posting something every Tree Hill fan will want to read. Trust me.

Question: Give me something about the One Tree Hill finale! –Christy
Ausiello:
What else you got, Armstrong? “Brooke finally gets two things she’s long wanted, we find out the fate of Peyton and the baby, and Whitey (the retired HS basketball coach) and Karen (Lucas’ mom, played by Moira Kelly) appear.” Thanks for ID’ing those last two JA, ’cause I wouldn’t of had a clue who you were talking about. Still don’t, in fact.

Question: Give us scoop on the new characters that will be joining One Tree Hill next season. –Janelle
Ausiello:
The three new faces include: Quinn, Haley’s free-spirited, strong-willed older sister; Alexis, a model-actress-crazy bitch in her 20s who Brooke hires to be the new face of her clothing line; and Clayton, a young and brash sports agent who takes on Nathan as a client.
