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

27 08 2010
  • The Real One Tree Hill Twitter account tweeted a very brief video with Austin Nichols (Julian, One Tree Hill).
  • Like Nichols did for his character, Sophia Bush (Brooke, One Tree Hill) has started a Twitter account for hers, under the name @BDavis_Baker.
  • TVGuide.com has a brief video interview with Joe Manganiello (Owen, One Tree Hill).
  • Shenae Grimes (Annie, 90210) tweeted she has a cameo in Scream 4, which also features Adam Brody (Seth, The O.C.) and Kristen Bell (Gossip Girl, Gossip Girl), and an article in the new issue of Nylon, the one that features Jessica Szohr (Vanessa, Gossip Girl) on the cover.
  • ABC has ordered a pilot from Fake Empire, which is run by Josh Schwartz (executive producer, Gossip Girl; The O.C.) and Stephanie Savage (executive producer, Gossip Girl; The O.C.). The show, which Schwartz and Savage will produce, sounds awfully like the failed CW pilot Body Politic, which starred Brian Austin Green (David, Beverly Hills 90210).
  • Gossip Cop busted a fabricated Perez Hilton story about Rachel Bilson (Summer, The O.C.) supposedly dating Jake Gyllenhaal.
  • Jackson Rathbone (Justin, The O.C.) has been cast in No Ordinary Family, which stars Autumn Reeser (Taylor, The O.C.) and is executive produced by Greg Berlanti (writer-producer, Dawson’s Creek).
  • Busy Philipps (Audrey, Dawson’s Creek) won Best Supporting Actress In A Comedy in EW.com’s EWwy Awards.
  • The Star has an interview with Nina Repeta (Bessie, Dawson’s Creek).

  • The Real One Tree Hill Twitter account tweeted a very brief video with Lee Norris (Mouth, One Tree Hill).
  • Examiner.com has an interview with Amanda Schull (Sara/Katie, One Tree Hill). She made some interesting comments when discussing a possible return to OTH.
  • A pretty big picture of Joe Manganiello (Owen, One Tree Hill) is on the cover of the new issue of Entertainment Weekly. That’s a huge achievement. Congrats to Joe!
  • Jana Kramer (Alex, One Tree Hill) has officially filed for divorce. She and Johnathon Schaech split a few weeks ago.
  • Takers, which briefly features Trevor Donovan (Teddy, 90210), stars Chris Brown (Will, The O.C.), and also happens to star Schaech and Rachel Bilson’s (Summer, The O.C.) ex Hayden Christensen, opens in theaters tomorrow.
  • 90210 and Dawson’s Creek are included in The Daily Beast’s look at “racy TV show scenes.” It’s sad, though, how respectable DC’s is and how much 90210’s isn’t. That can be applied to the series as a whole, too, in my opinion.
  • Kristin has an “exclusive sneak peek” at 90210’s new season. Looks like some new characters we haven’t heard about may be introduced.
  • Earlier this month CBS announced a new channel in India, which would air 90210, and now it’s been announced a new channel will also air the show in Australia.
  • Gossip Cop busted a false Star story about Tori Spelling (Donna, Beverly Hills 90210).
  • Taylor Momsen and her band The Pretty Reckless were on the Late Show With David Letterman last night.
  • Fashion publicist Kelly Cutrone is reportedly working with Fake Empire, which is run by Josh Schwartz (executive producer, Gossip Girl; The O.C.) and Stephanie Savage (executive producer, Gossip Girl; The O.C.), on a new fashion-based series.
  • OK! Magazine has a fall fashion feature with Autumn Reeser (Taylor, The O.C.).

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

Scott in Detroit, Mich.: I totally remember Joe Manganiello, True Blood‘s Alcide, as Brad on How I Met Your Mother! Any chance he’ll make another appearance on the show?
Ew. That flabby schlub? “I would bet money that Brad will be back.” That’s what the ridonkulously hot man himself told us. So what exactly has Brad been up to since we last saw him in the season five premiere? “He revealed he may be a hermaphrodite ’cause he tells Robin, ‘I’m a little different down there,’ So maybe deeper into the mystery of what Brad is,” Joe suggested. “We need to figure out what Brad is. We’re figuring out who the mother is and what exactly Brad is. It’s kind of the b-plot of the show, ‘What is Brad?'” B-plot?! Psh, we’re promoting the Brad mystery to the A-plot. Sorry Ted’s baby mama, we’ve had enough of your drama.

Steph in Austin, TX: Kristin, there’s a rumor that Chuck tries to rape and beat Blair. Can you clear that up for me because if this happens, [Gossip Girl] can shove this show where the sun doesn’t shine. Thanks!
Per my rock-solid source: “LOL. Not true in the least.” So no one needs to shove anything anywhere uncomfortable. Phew!

Sarah in Massapequa, N.Y.: Am I the only person sensing some romantic tension between Aria’s dad Byron (Chad Lowe) and Hanna’s mom Ashley (Laura Leighton) on Pretty Little Liars?
Trust us, you are definitely not the only one catching the pair’s meaningful stares and ever-growing connection, but there might be someone standing in their way when this guiltiest of guilty pleasures returns, and that someone ain’t his estranged wife, Ella (Holly Marie Combs). We caught up with Amanda Schull, aka Byron’s former mistress Meredith, who tells us fans will be seeing more of her in the second half of the season: “As far as I know I will be [back]. I don’t know the details of that but I know that the story line, especially the story lines in the book say I will be.” Well, according to the books she’s around for a (pregnant pause)… long time. Oops, was that too obvious?

Monica: Hi! Any scoop on 90210?
Michael Steger tells us: “I show up in a Ferrari, I got rid of the Lamborghini, so I am driving a new car to school on the first day.” Jessica Lowndes: “My new character is no longer in high school, she’s touring and singing, so there’s a lot more music, which has been a lot of fun.” And Matt Lanter: “There’s always drama, love triangles, I’ve got a half-brother coming in. There’s a big earthquake that happens in episode one, so it kind of affects everybody, it’s kind of fun.” By the way, Matt stars as the Robert Pattison in the new spoof movie Vampires Suck and jokes about his anticipated reaction from Twilight fans: “I got a couple extra deadbolts on my door just as a precaution, but so far, I haven’t needed ’em.”

Notes:

Manganiello played Owen on One Tree Hill.

Leighton played Sophie on Beverly Hills 90210. Schull plays Sara/Katie on One Tree Hill. And Lowe used to be married to Hilary Swank (Carly, Beverly Hills 90210), while Holly Marie Combs starred with Shannen Doherty (Brenda, Beverly Hills 90210) on Charmed.

(There are many more connections at play here when you consider the casts of HIMYM, True Blood and PLL, but let’s save it for Six Degrees of Teen Dramas.)

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

Jorja in Boise, Idaho: Loved the ScrubsCougar Town casting scoop! Any other stars interested in coming on the show?
Well, Bill Lawrence has asked his cast if they have any friends who want to guest star, and Busy Philipps tells her famous bestie may be on board! “Michelle Williams and I were talking about how hilarious it would be if she came on and played my sister,” she laughs. “I don’t think her agents are going to go for it though.” Um, we are! A Dawson’s Creek reunion is long overdue, don’tcha think? I wonder what that Joey girl is up to?

Benny in Rhode Island: On Gossip Girl, what’s the deal with Serena’s new love interest? Does this mean Serena-Dan and Serena-Nate are over?
I’m told that the Dan-Serena-Nate triangle is definitely not over. The new squeeze is played by Sam Page and he isn’t the kind of guy she usually dates. Thoughts? Which guy are you rooting for?

On 90210, can you say who the guy who is going to come out of the closet is? Will he have a love interest? Also, what’s up with the rapist teacher guy? Is he out?
No, I can’t name the gay character (sorry—I’m glad you asked, but I can’t tell!) but I can tell you he definitely will have a love interest, and actor Kyle Riabko has been cast to fill the tole. As for Mr. Cannon, I’m told he’ll be Silver’s senior advisor. Dun dun dun.

Brandon: Anything else on 90210?
How about an Entourage-ish crossover? Naomi is going throw a crazy-lavish 18th birthday party early in the season and Adrian Grenier‘s band Honey Brothers has officially been named the house band. Pretty cool, huh?

Heather: Anything on True Blood? Will Joe Manganiello be back on One Tree Hill at all?
He told us he’d love to, and he has the space in his schedule, but I’m told there’s no talk right now of him returning, sorry! But at least you get to seen him scantily clad in an upcoming ep of True Blood…Which some of you probably won’t hate.

Zach in Santa Clara, Calif.: What is the deal with the two universes on Fringe and what does it mean for Joshua Jackson that Peter doesn’t have an alternate?
You can file this under no good, very bad news: Josh is only in every other episode. The artist formerly known as Pacey Witter himself told us he isn’t in the season premiere and he’s not in any of the odd-numbered episodes. Blasphemy! Why are the powers that be doing this to us, you ask? We spoke with his co-star Lance Reddick who spilled that, “Every other episode is going to be either one universe or the other. So, they’re going to be alternating universes at least for the first half of the season.” On the bright side, at least Josh now has more time to plan next year’s Pacey-Con, and that upcoming guest stint on The Vampire Diaries.

Notes:

Busy Philipps, Michelle Williams and Joshua Jackson all starred on Dawson’s Creek as Audrey, Jen and Pacey, respectively. And Joey was played by Katie Holmes.

Jackson also finds out in the video that James Van Der Beek (Dawson, Dawson’s Creek) got married. Can’t decide if I’m surprised or not surprised that he didn’t know.
