One Tree Hill Episode Recap 6.16: “Screenwriter’s Blues”

Austin Nichols, James van der Beek and Chad Michael Murray, One Tree HillPreviously on One Tree Hill: Reese was chosen as the director for Lucas’ movie while Brooke got down and dirty with Julian.

Things begin in Peyton’s office where Reese and Lucas (Chad Michael Murray) are holding casting calls for the roles of Nathan and Haley. The real Nathan and Haley are on hand, and he’s wondering why all the actors auditioning for him are shirtless. Clearly he hasn’t been watching One Tree Hill, where James Lafferty is almost always shirtless himself.

They leave because Nathan has to go on the road for a few weeks, but at least Haley (Bethany Joy Galeotti) has all these shirtless Nathans to keep her company. Nathan meets with his coach and convinces him to let him start over the cocky Devon. That happiness is shirt-lived when he finds out Devon was fired. Nathan gets even more depressed when he finds out his cocky rival has a cute little daughter and a very pregnant wife.

Peyton (Hilarie Burton) tries to visit Lucas, but the casting director mistakes her for an actress and has her take a seat. A potential Peyton next to her gives a whiny line reading of “Why do people always leave?” When Peyton finally auditions, Reese thinks she’s too old, but maybe she could play Deb. Oh snap.

Peyton heads off to enlist Mia’s help in putting together a baby crib. After realizing this subplot is boring and going nowhere, Mia (Kate Voegele) leaves to be with Chase. In her absence, Skills (Antwon Tanner) arrives as the baby proofer, which is his day job. It’s sad that this is the only storyline he’s had for the past several episodes.

After seeing all the Peytons, Reese wants the one with the biggest boobs, but Lucas is stuck trying to maintain integrity. Someone should tell him that Hollywood and idealism don’t really mix. Later Lucas is attacked by work for the movie, including the actor playing Dan wondering why he hates Keith so much and a group of potential Lucases imitating his every move. Lucas has a mini freak-out over all the moving pieces involved with making a movie…..READ FULL RECAP AT BUDDY TV
