News Roundup: 90210, Gossip Girl and Dawson’s Creek

9 04 2010
  • The L.A. Times has an interview with Jessica Lowndes (Adrianna, 90210).
  • Teen Today has an interview with Trevor Donovan (Teddy, 90210) but it’s really…well, you’ll see.
  • Parade.com has an interview with Brian Austin Green (David, Beverly Hills 90210). It’s good but there’s nary a mention of BH90210.
  • You can watch the trailer for Call Me Fitz (previously called Meet Phil Fitz), the upcoming Canadian series starring Jason Priestley (Brandon, Beverly Hills 90210). Warning: this is NSFW and very far removed from Brandon Walsh! (I think the latter is part of the point.)
  • Thanks to Talking Gossip After Dark for the shoutout!
  • Ausiello has a pretty big Gossip Girl spoiler.
  • Kristin also has some spoilers, but less big.
  • PEOPLE.com has a spoilish “first look” at next week’s Gossip Girl.
  • Leighton Meester (Blair, Gossip Girl) is now a Global Ambassador for Herbal Essences. (Women’s Wear Daily has an article announcing the deal but you have to be a subscriber to their Web site to read it.)
  • US Weekly has an article on the supposed split between Meester and Sebastian Stan (Carter, Gossip Girl) but I still don’t know if it’s true.
  • Robyn Lively, half-sister of Blake Lively (Serena, Gossip Girl), stars in Letters To God, which is now playing in select theaters.
  • Kristen Bell (Gossip Girl, Gossip Girl) will be a presenter at the Academy of Country Music Awards on April 18.
  • James Van Der Beek (Dawson, Dawson’s Creek) and his girlfriend Kimberly Brook are expecting a baby.

News Roundup: One Tree Hill, 90210, The O.C. and Dawson’s Creek

18 02 2010
  • Korbi is asking readers if One Tree Hill should return for an 8th season.
  • Hollywood Life (::cringe::) has an article in support of an 8th season (which really stems from an unfair poll they ran last week).
  • The TV Addict also has piece supporting One Tree Hill (and Life Unexpected).
  • Us Weekly (::shudder::) has a short interview with Shantel VanSanten (Quinn, One Tree Hill).
  • AnnaLynne McCord (Naomi, 90210) is on the cover of Shape Magazine, which Crushable.com thinks was photo-shopped.
  • John Schneider (Liam’s step-dad, 90210) will star in a pilot for Spike called Back Nine.
  • Shannen Doherty (Brenda, Beverly Hills 90210) spoke to PEOPLE.com about her fashion style and her admiration of Lady Gaga.
  • ShelterPop has an article on the Beverly Hills 90210 beach apartment being for sale. In addition to saying that it is indeed separate apartments (the listing I posted earlier this month said it was one house), there’s a picture of the inside–and it looks nothing like what we saw on the show. The intro also describes it as “Donna and David’s beachfront pad”–an odd choice considering David lived there for just one season while Donna and Kelly lived there, albeit off-and-on, for six.
  • The Wall Street Journal has an interview with Benjamin McKenzie (Ryan, The O.C.) about Southland.
  • Shutter Island, starring Michelle Williams (Jen, Dawson’s Creek) will be released in theaters tomorrow.




News Roundup: 90210, Gossip Girl and One Tree Hill

  • 90210 had 2.2 million viewers last night, the same as last week, which is interesting given that the show didn’t air in some markets last night.
  • Just like last season, the 7-day DVR viewing data shows 90210 had a bigger audience for its premiere than the overnight ratings indicated.
  • Apparently Shenae Grimes (Annie, 90210) recently spent some time blogging for Nylon.
  • EW.com has an article on “older actors playing young,” citing both Trevor Donovan (Teddy, 90210) and Gabrielle Cateris (Andrea, Beverly Hills 90210) as examples.  Donovan and I briefly discussed this a bit in our interview.
  • Jason Priestley (Brandon, Beverly Hills 90210) will be the star in a Canadian comedy series.
  • If you want to know more about showbizzle, which is run by Charles Rosin (executive producer, Beverly Hills 90210), check out this video interview.
  • Talking Gossip After Dark has a new podcast.
  • Totally agree with EW.com on this new Gossip Girl promo photo.
  • I hate to promote tabloids but US Weekly has a spread on Gossip Girl’s wardrobe closet.
  • Kate Voegele (Mia, One Tree Hill) has a new video diary thingie on YouTube.
  • There is a new SoGoPro podcast, featuring Hilarie Burton (Peyton, One Tree Hill).  She’s also in some new vlogs.




News Roundup: 90210, Gossip Girl, The O.C. and More

4 02 2009
  • E!Online has video of Tori Spelling (Donna) filming with Jennie Garth (Kelly) and Jessica Stroup (Silver) on the 90210 set.  Nothing revealing.  They also have semi-revealing scoop about Gossip Girl (but nothing new if you read the spoiler post from earlier today!).
  • Don’t usually post tabloid gossip but this is interesting, considering there’s been rumors for months: US Weekly has a photo of Ed Westwick (Chuck, Gossip Girl) and Jessica Szohr (Vanessa, Gossip Girl) kissing.  Or at least it seems to be Ed.  Honestly not 100 percent sure it’s him.
  • But if you want to spot Chuck himself in real life (or someone like him), you should read this post from Jossip.
  • Or you can see Westwick at the upcoming Comic Con, where he’ll promote S. Darko.  The film also stars James Lafferty (Nathan, One Tree Hill).
  • Maureen Ryan from The Chicago Tribune has a cool interview with Josh Schwartz on the role music will play in the Gossip Girl spin-off.
  • I don’t watch Big Love but apparently it improves upon what The O.C. got right in–and only in–the show’s first season.  (For more on what The O.C. got right and then got wrong, as alluded to in the article, check out my own piece here!)
