Article: Ryan Eggold Interview

13 01 2009

In another great 90210 interview (which we’re getting thanks to the TCA Press Tour), Eggold (Ryan Matthews) reveals some interesting inside-info.  Here are the highlights:

Tori Spelling’s (Donna, Beverly Hills 9021o) return will be related to Silver.  Makes sense considering they’re related through marriage.  Brian Austin Green, where are you?!

The execs did consider making Ryan Harry and Tracy’s lovechild.

They also considered Ryan getting Brenda pregnant.

He’s got a very foul mouth.  Strange–I don’t remember that from when I interviewed him!

Breaking News: Mark Schwahn NOT Doing Melrose Place

12 01 2009

From the ongoing Television Critics Association Press Tour: Dawn Ostroff, head of The CW, announced that Mark Schwahn is no longer involved with the Melrose Place remake.

So what does this mean for One Tree Hill?

Here’s what the article says:

“[Ostroff] would only say how pleased she has been with the show and noted it has made huge gains in audience over last year.  At this point, the only sticking points for renewal could be with the cast. The major players’ contracts all expire after this season, and so far none of the cast have agreed to more seasons — though many have expressed being open to the idea.”
