Ten Most Memorable Guest-Stars and Cameos

7 10 2009

During what’s known as “sweeps period,” TV shows usually pull out all the stops–storylines come to a head, shocking things are revealed and famous actors drop by for cameos.

What struck me as interesting recently is that The CW isn’t restricting itself to those time periods.

With Tyra Banks and Hilary Duff appearing on Gossip Girl this week, and Rumer Willis’ recurring role on 90210, I started thinking about stunt casting on our other shows.

For the next few days, I’ll count down the ten most memorable guest-stars and cameos from all of the teen dramas.

To kick things off, here are the 3 mentioned above.  I’m not including them because they are the most recent but because I really do believe they deserve a spot on the this most memorable list.

10.  Hilary Duff

9. Rumer Willis

8. Tyra Banks

Are Navid and Adrianna really going to break up on 90210? I love them together! — Katelyn
MICKEY: Well, that’s hard to say. I wonder if it has to do with Teddy? I hope it doesn’t send Ade back to substance abuse.

I can’t wait to see Hilary Duff on Gossip Girl. Who will she have scenes with? — Andrea S.
MICKEY: Who won’t she have scenes with? I had heard that movie star Olivia Burke (Duff) would be rooming with Vanessa, but I had no idea she’d be romancing Dan and working with Serena. (Yes, you heard me right: working.) But forget all that, if you’re looking for an excuse to laugh louder than you ever have in your life honest human emotion, wait until you see Duff and fellow guest star Tyra Banks’ virtuoso performances in Fleur, the film-within-the-show about, of course, the French resistance during World War II. Talk about Les Miserables!

Kelly in Michigan: Please tell me that the Dan-Georgina hookup in the Gossip Girl promos is misdirection!
No can do. Michelle Trachtenberg‘s Georgina and Penn Badgley‘s Dan really do hook up in season three of Gossip Girl. Naughty! (BTW, in case you missed ’em, check out our exclusive on-set interviews with Penn, Michelle, Jessica Szohr and Leighton Meester!)

Mickey in Arizona: I can’t wait to see Hilary Duff on Gossip Girl! When does she start?
Hilary Duff‘s Olivia Burke is introduced in episode four, and she’ll be sticking around for a while.

Bruce in Miami: Is Naomi going to hook up with Rumer Willis’ character on 90210 this season?
If AnnaLynne McCord has any say in it, heck yes! “Maybe Naomi gets a little drunk, maybe she has a little peck on the lips with Rumer. It can’t hurt anybody.” As for N’s overall mean-girl status this season, AnnaLynne promises: “I’m a lot funnier and a lot nicer this year.”
