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

Show: Gossip Girl

Episode: Begins with 3.04: Dan de Fleurette

Role: Olivia Burke

Status: Recurring

9. Rumer Willis

Show: 90210

Episode: Begins with 2.02: To Sext or Not To Sext

Role: Gia

Status: Recurring

8. Tyra Banks

Show: Gossip Girl

Episode: 3.04: Dan de Fleurette

Role: Ursula

Status: Guest-Star

Come back tomorrow for part 2 of my countdown!

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

Question: Rumor has it that Ausiello has been slacking on his Gossip Girl scoop. —Tina
Ausiello:
Rumor has it you smell, but you don’t see me spreading that around, do you? Here’s your damn GG scoop: Tyra Banks’ guest turn as a tempestuous film actress in Monday’s episode is highlarious. Even better, she wasn’t trying to be funny, so you’ll be laughing at her and not with her! Awesome, right? Well, the news just keeps getting better ’cause I gots me a clip!

Question: I’d give my left hand and my first two children (named Aus and Hole, of course) if you would give us a juicy Gossip Girl scoop. The Dan-Georgina hookup ruined Brooklyn for me forever! —Erin
Ausiello:
Well, there’s no D&G in Monday’s episode. There is a fair amount of D&D (Dan and Duff, as in Hilary), and, I have to say, I don’t hate them together. I’m also kind of loving Chuck and Blair as an official couple. Kudos to Team Schwavage for doing what few TV writers have ever been able to — making an entertaining couple even more entertaining together than apart.

Question: Anything on One Tree Hill? —Anita
Ausiello:
Casting scoop! Former NFL star and Hall of Famer John Riggins has been cast in the potentially recurring role of Clay’s boss, Ken Arthur. The sometime-actor (Law & Order: CI, Guiding Light) shows up in episode 10.

****

Really like the term “Schwavage” but I totally disagree with the rest of the sentence!

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

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!
