90210 – Newbie Sets off Sexting Scandal

When the new season of 90210 premieres on Tuesday, we’ll find Annie (Shenae Grimes) still dealing with her prom night hit-and-run.
But that’s not all she’s going to have to worry about.
A beach club party hook up with West Beverly Hills High School senior and football star Mark Driscoll, played by newcomer Blake Hood, leads to a scandal that appears to have been ripped from any number of Hollywood headlines.
“We get together and I do something I shouldn’t have done,” Hood tells me.
Uh-oh.
Read on for more of the dramarama details…
“I take a picture of her that I probably shouldn’t have taken and oops, guess what? It gets around a little bit,” Hood says.
Despite the messiness, Hood says Mark does try to help Annie get through the sext scandal. “It’s definitely a relationship that kind of sticks around for a while,” Hood says, adding, “He’s a good guy who has done a couple of bad things, has made some mistakes.”
Hood, a Dallas native who moved to L.A. three years ago, laughs when asked if he has secret real-life NSFW pics or video of his own stashed away somewhere. “Maybe that’s something to strive for,” he cracks. “You know you’ve made it when you have a sex tape.”

Harry (Rob Estes) and Debbie (Lori Loughlin) attempt to discuss Annie’s situation but the conversation only causes more tension, leading Harry to open up to Kelly (Jennie Garth) about his family problems. Dixon (Tristan Wilds) meets his dream girl, Sasha (guest star Mekia Cox, “Bones”) and sparks immediately begin to fly, though he fails to reveal his true age. Silver (Jessica Stroup) continues to get over Dixon while Adrianna (Jessica Lowndes) and Navid (Michael Steger) deal with Teddy’s (guest star Trevor Donovan, “Days of Our Lives”) presence in their life. Liam (Matt Lanter), fed up with the lies between Naomi and Annie, retreats to his garage to work on a mysterious project.

90210 – Latest from Kristin

Olivia in Los Angeles: 90210 starts next week! What can you tell me about season two?
We chatted exclusively with Ryan Eggold (Ryan Matthews), and he says we can expect more complicated romances this season: “The fun thing about season two is that all the relationships from season one have time to become more exciting and more gray; they are less defined,” he said. “I know that I have another love triangle. I’m constantly stuck in those. This one is with a student and a new female character.” Who do you think Ryan will get tangled up with? Predict in the comments below! For more 90210 spoilers, be sure to check out this article about another hot new relationship on the show. P.S. We’ve seen some of 90210 season two (more on that in a future item), and the new season is so, so, so much better than season one. Whole new look, better storylines, cooler outfits, and with all respect to Dustin Milligan, you won’t miss Ethan for a second because the new guys (like Trevor Donovan, pictured left) are better-looking and a great deal more interesting.

90210 – Liam and Annie reunite?

Amalia Zinser is joining the cast as Ivy, a tomboy surfer girl who becomes a new love interest for Liam (and Dixon). As Lanter tells us, “Naomi and I have some obstacles to get through.”Still, there’s hope. Lanter says that he and AnnaLynne are rooting for their characters: “We want it to happen. Liam is trying to find a way to basically tell Naomi what happened, but he’s trying to be sensitive because it’s her sister.”

90210 – Latest from Kristin

Are Silver and Dixon over on 90210, or is there hope for them?
We don’t want to give false hope, but Jessica Stroup teases, “Will you see us kiss? Yes. Will we continue to kiss for the whole season? I don’t know.” While both have new love interests coming in, they still care for each other. Tristan Wilds tells us, “It’s definitely a rocky relationship. We’re having our ups and our downs. You never know where we fall, but right now we’re separated.”

Any more 90210 scoop?
Supersexy newbie Trevor Donovan is coming onboard as the rich son of an Oscar winner who stirs things up with Adrianna and Navid. “I have a connection with Adrianna. We have a little past, so obviously I’m creating a little tension, a little drama,” says Donovan. Is he a bad boy? “Not intentionally. He is causing a little trouble, but he’s somewhat oblivious to it.”

90210 scoop, please.

Don’t worry about Kelly getting involved in any rumored love triangles. “I definitely am not going to allow Kelly to be a homewrecker,” Jennie Garth told us exclusively. “The producers and I have talked about it. It’s not something I’m interested in, and it’s not something they’re going to do.” Why not some added drama? “I’ve spent too many years trying to create this woman other women can trust,” she said.

Are we even going to see Dustin Milligan at all on 90210, or is Ethan gone for good?
Gone for good, though Jessica Stroup tells us, “Ethan is happy in his world. He’s doing his thing wherever he is. He gets a mention and is talked about a little bit, but he’s happy.” Are you happy with that? Discuss in the comments.

Spoilers from August 09

We’ll learn in the September 8 season premiere that Ethan decided to stay in Montana with his father. (Michael Ausiello)

Ryan Eggold (Ryan Matthews) talking about the new season: “The fun thing about season two is that all the relationships from season one have time to become more exciting and more gray; they are less defined,” he said. “I know that I have another love triangle. I’m constantly stuck in those. This one is with a student and a new female character.” (Watch With Kristin)

90210 – Jennie Garth back

Reports of Jennie Garth’s banishment from 90210 have been greatly exaggerated. The BH vet has inked a deal to return this fall for multiple episodes, sources confirm to me exclusively. Garth reappears in episode 3 when Kelly gives Harry advice on how to deal with his, ahem, situation with Annie.

Last month, Ausiello reported that producers had not yet approached Garth about returning for season 2, leading some to wonder how far new boss Rebecca Rand Kirshner Sinclair was planning to scale back the nostalgia factor. At the time, a show rep insisted that ”the intention is to have Jennie back.” And gosh dammit, they weren’t lying! Happy Kelly’s returning? Theories about Annie’s “situation”? Sound off below! Source: EW

Any idea who Annie hit with her car on 90210? AnnaLynne McCord tells us the 90210 cast just found out last week, and “It’s really bad.” Hit the comments with your guesses as to who it is or who you want it to be! As for Naomi in the upcoming second season, AnnaLynne teases, “Obviously there was a horrible ending for poor Naomi. She is over Liam, and she is over Annie. She goes through the first half of the season really trying to prove that to herself. I don’t think she’s really over him, but we’ll see that push and pull.” Speaking of Liam, Matt Lanter spills, “We’re going to get into his family life a little bit more. It’s 90210 so I’m sure there are going to be some new romances and some jealousy and backstabbing.” Source: TV Guide Online

Will Adrianna and Naomi reconcile with Annie on 90210? As far as Naomi (AnnaLynne McCord), Adrianna (Jessica Lowndes) and Annie (Shenae Grimes) being best buds in the second season (something some of you would like to see), AnnaLynne says, “Never. Not going to happen. I’m sorry. I wish.”… Any scoop on 90210? I’m in for the long haul. Michael Steger tells us, “They’re talking about renovating the Blaze newsroom, so it’s going to be where everything happens and everybody meets up. They’re going to make it very loungey, very comfortable.” (The Blaze newsroom is where we’ll meet Rumer Willis‘ character when she guests in a season-two episode.) Source: Kristin on E!Online

‘90210’: Rumer Willis signs on

Rumerwillis_290 The cast of “90210” continues to grow for season two. The latest addition? Bruce and Demi’s oldest daughter, Rumer Willis. Willis will appear on “at least one episode” of the show next season, says Access Hollywood. She’ll be playing a “punky cute lesbian” named Gia who works on the West Bev newscast, Blaze News, with Adrianna, Navid and Silver. She joins fellow newbie Trevor Donovan, who’ll be a regular on the show next season as the charming, handsome Teddy.

Who’s going to hook up with the new stud on 90210? Please say Kelly. MICKEY: Kelly?! She will be his guidance counselor. As usual, I’m hearing that Annie and Naomi will scratch each other’s eyes out volleying for the tennis stud’s attention, but that his love will belong to Silver, who returns to feisty form this season. (Any suggestions for who should play Teddy’s Clooney-esque movie-star dad? I’m thinking Peter Gallagher would totally rock it.)

Meet Trevor Donovan, ‘90210’s’ new hottie

Source: Zap2It’s Korbi TV

Trevordonovan_90210_290 A few weeks back, Korbi brought you her first impressions of the guy who’s supposed to set hearts aflutter on “90210” this fall. We now have a name and a face to put to the character: that of former Abercrombie & Fitch model and “Days of Our Lives” actor Trevor Donovan. So, mission accomplished? Donovan has been cast on “90210” as Teddy, EW.com reports. The character is a tennis champ whose dad is an A-list celeb and who’s returning to West Beverly after an as-yet-unexplained absence. Teddy also has charm to spare, at least based on the audition scene Korbi got her hands on recently. Donovan shouldn’t have any problem turning heads — the guy was a model, after all. He also did a stint as bad boy Jeremy Horton on “Days of Our Lives” in 2007. The only issue we see at the moment is that he’ll be playing a good deal younger than his actual age (30, according to IMDB). But that’s a long-standing “90210” tradition too (see Perry, Luke; Carteris, Gabrielle). Heck, Donovan even shares a birthday (Oct. 11) with Perry. What do you think? Does the casting of Donovan spike your interest for season two of “90210”?

Is ‘90210’ finally casting a character we can fall in love with?

Source: Zap2It’s Korbi TV

Cast_90210 “Veronica Mars”‘ Logan Echolls. “Friday Night Lights”‘ Tim Riggins. “Gossip Girl”‘s Chuck Bass. These are the names that first come to mind when I think of charming, swoon-worthy men of the small screen. It’s characters like these that make a series great and it’s characters like these that “90210” is currently lacking.

But, perhaps, not for long.
Sure, the show added Liam (Matt Lanter) to the cast towards the end of last season and, yes, he’s hot. But, as any true TV fan knows, it takes more than good looks to create a star. Some combination of expertly written dialogue and solid comedic timing is necessary as well and, I don’t know, “90210” may just be catching on to that formula with the forthcoming addition of “Teddy.”
Last week, we told you that “90210” will welcome a recurring character in the fall, a high school tennis champ with a movie star pops who possesses “Clooney-esque” charm. I didn’t think much of this at first, but a friend just floated me the audition material for this kid and, I must say, I already kind of want to make out with him.
In the scene I read, Teddy is one-on-one with Silver, who he manages to keep on her toes. He seems funny, smart, sweet, not over-the-top, yet not underwhelming. He calls her out during their little chat, but in a laid back, non-threatening sort of way. And with a smile.
I mean, who knows, maybe I’m being stupidly optimistic. Maybe this kid will fall sort of flat like so many of the other boys on the show. But I’m telling you now that there is hope.
At this point, I believe The CW and the “90210” producers are still auditioning a slew of dude actors for the role and this is obviously a key part to the puzzle. But I caution the casting team, don’t get caught up in pretty faces who can simply deliver a line sufficiently. Teddy must possess something special. After all, guys like Jason Dohring, Taylor Kitsch and Ed Westwick are not traditionally handsome men. But their charm and humor elevates their sex appeal to a whole ‘nother level. Of course you can’t drop the ball on the dialogue you’re writing for this character either, that’s perhaps the most important part of the equation. So, yeah, I hope you guys are adding a smart new scribe or two to your staff this summer as well.

‘90210’ Bringing The Beverly Hills Beach Club Back

The teens of West Beverly are getting a summer hangout! “90210” producers are bringing back the Beverly Hills Beach Club, a rep for the network confirmed to Access Hollywood. Both Brandon Walsh and Dylan McKay worked at the beachfront property, which became a hangout for the original gang, including Brenda Walsh and Kelly Taylor. The BHBC will be featured throughout the summer on the new “90210,” The CW told Access, and may help foster romances among the West Beverly kids. The original filming location was also used as a hangout for Zack Morris and the gang on “Saved By The Bell,” however it was called the Malibu Sands Beach Club in the NBC series. But it appears that filming on the new “90210” will not be able to take place in the original location. The series of buildings sustained damage in the 1994 Northridge earthquake. The CW told Access that some of the scenes will be filmed at an undisclosed location, while others will be shot on a set. “90210” resumes production in June. Source: NBC Universal, Inc.

Has there ever been an official explanation for why Dustin Milligan was cut from 90210? MICKEY: At the recent Paley Festival, new show-runner Rebecca Rand Kirshner said, “I was sort of stumped by [Ethan]. I didn’t feel like there was the longevity in that character that I wanted. And so it was a real loss.” Unofficially, I’m hearing that Ethan’s departure has paved the way for a new male lead of a very different stripe. More on him later… Source: TV Guide

Any scoop on the aftermath of Annie killing someone in the 90210 finale? We asked Annie’s (Shenae Grimes) 90210 co-star Jessica Stroup that very question: “Of course it’s going to change Annie inevitably. She’s going to be a totally different character. I think next year is going to be amazing for her because she’s going to go through a lot of changes with this character and down some really, really dark roads. I hope, at least, that it affects every one of us. I know that it’s going to affect all the characters, but I hope it brings us back together at some point as a whole group.” Source: Kristin on E!Online

90210 Exclusive: Meet Ethan’s Replacement

AnnaLynne McCord, Dustin Milligan, Shenae Grimes, Tristan Wilds, Jessica Stroup, Michael Steger

We were all sad to see the charming Dustin Milligan get the heave-ho from 90210 this spring, but fear not! TVGuide.com has learned exclusively that West Bev is getting a new shot of testosterone in the fall, courtesy a new recurring character. Known as “Teddy” in the character breakdown, the new man in town is a tennis champ who is also the son of a famous movie star. He is described as “returning to West Beverly,” which immediately made me think that he was the man behind the wheel of that bumper-stickered Mercedes that witnessed Annie hit… whatever it is that she hit on her season-finale joyride. Teddy’s charm is described as “Clooney-esque,” which will surely send all the ladies’ hearts a-flutter. That is, until it actually causes the inevitable rift/catfight among Silver, Annie and Naomi, thus teaching our young girls that when looking for a potential suitor, don’t let anything get in your way, least of all your best friends. All other women are evil and should be considered competition. That is all. Who do you think should be cast as 90210‘s “Teddy”?

Is ‘90210’ finally casting a character we can fall in love with?

Source: Zap2It’s Korbi TV

Cast_90210 “Veronica Mars”‘ Logan Echolls. “Friday Night Lights”‘ Tim Riggins. “Gossip Girl”‘s Chuck Bass. These are the names that first come to mind when I think of charming, swoon-worthy men of the small screen. It’s characters like these that make a series great and it’s characters like these that “90210” is currently lacking.

But, perhaps, not for long.
Sure, the show added Liam (Matt Lanter) to the cast towards the end of last season and, yes, he’s hot. But, as any true TV fan knows, it takes more than good looks to create a star. Some combination of expertly written dialogue and solid comedic timing is necessary as well and, I don’t know, “90210” may just be catching on to that formula with the forthcoming addition of “Teddy.”
Last week, we told you that “90210” will welcome a recurring character in the fall, a high school tennis champ with a movie star pops who possesses “Clooney-esque” charm. I didn’t think much of this at first, but a friend just floated me the audition material for this kid and, I must say, I already kind of want to make out with him.
In the scene I read, Teddy is one-on-one with Silver, who he manages to keep on her toes. He seems funny, smart, sweet, not over-the-top, yet not underwhelming. He calls her out during their little chat, but in a laid back, non-threatening sort of way. And with a smile.
I mean, who knows, maybe I’m being stupidly optimistic. Maybe this kid will fall sort of flat like so many of the other boys on the show. But I’m telling you now that there is hope.
At this point, I believe The CW and the “90210” producers are still auditioning a slew of dude actors for the role and this is obviously a key part to the puzzle. But I caution the casting team, don’t get caught up in pretty faces who can simply deliver a line sufficiently. Teddy must possess something special. After all, guys like Jason Dohring, Taylor Kitsch and Ed Westwick are not traditionally handsome men. But their charm and humor elevates their sex appeal to a whole ‘nother level. Of course you can’t drop the ball on the dialogue you’re writing for this character either, that’s perhaps the most important part of the equation. So, yeah, I hope you guys are adding a smart new scribe or two to your staff this summer as well.

The next season of 90210 would have to go on without good guy Ethan, as Entertainment Weekly has just reported that Canadian actor Dustin Milligan won’t be returning to the show this fall. He may be one-half of the series’ central super couple, but he has no power over major decisions such as this.

An insider from the series revealed that Milligan’s contract option will not be picked up for 90210’s sophomore run. However, he might be back to wrap up his character’s story in a multi-episode arc.

Apparently, the reasons for Milligan’s departure are rooted in the creative vision of the writers and had nothing to do with financial matters. Rebecca Rand Kirshner Sinclair, the new boss of 90210, admitted to EW’s Michael Ausiello about season 2 being “significantly” different than the first.

It looks as if it’s going to be quite a reboot, especially with Sinclair’s idea to “reconceive things visually.” She also maintained that “There are opportunities to embrace California culture visually in terms of fashion and style; I want it to be more contemporary.”

“If Gossip Girl is about youth in New York,” she explains, “I want to [make 90210] about youth in L.A. and Beverly Hills.”

Another point she’s hoping to raise is that 90210 won’t be relying on the original’s alums to boost their ratings. This could also mean a farewell to the likes of Jennie Garth, Shannen Doherty, and Tori Spelling. It only seems fit since writer-producer Sinclair already took the helm from the original show-running duo of Jeff Judah and Gabe Sachs.

“The show tried to be a lot of things to a lot of people in its first season,” Sinclair said. “I think the center lies with the generation of kids that are in high school now. I’m not interested in casting people for stunt value.”

This goes the same for Dustin Milligan, who’ll surely be missed. “Everyone loves Ethan,” said the 90210 insider. “There was just a feeling that the character had run its course.”

One Tree Hill – Season 7 – Haley’s Sister Spoilers Are Revealed


Korbi Ghosh from Zap2it got talk with one of the new girls, Shantel VanSanten who will be appearing on the upcoming 7th season of CW’s “One Tree Hill” as Haley’s sister who is a photographer. Shantel spoke a bit about how her and Haley’s relationship will be on the show.

She said, “yes, I play Haley’s older sister. I’m a photographer. And I think we both have that artistic side. Her being a singer, we have that same mentality in common and I think we’ve always been close for that reason.

But I got married when I was younger, so I have a whole other relationship and whole other life. I come back to Tree Hill just like a lot of people go home to kind of figure life out. And I think that Haley becomes my best friend, the person that I would call about everything.”

She then commented on how her character will allow us to see a different side of Haley that we’ve never seen before. She stated,“Yeah, I think that it’s fun to bring Haley’s sister in, because you end up seeing a different side of Haley.

You know what I mean? You’ll see different things you maybe wouldn’t have seen before because her sister’s around and there’s that sister bond and you tell each other secrets and expose things you wouldn’t have otherwise.

Me and my own sister are so close and Joy talked to me about it, she wanted to know what my relationship with her was like and we discussed little ticks that sisters have and it’s really been awesome. She’s awesome to work with.”

Next, Shantel shares how she arrives in town,and what her reasons are for coming. She said, ”I come for Jamie’s birthday. But I think when you’re in your 20s, you go through stuff. Is my life going in the right direction? Am I doing the right thing? Is this what I want for the rest of my life, with everything, you question your job, your love life. So I think maybe she comes to town trying to figure some things out and through her relationship with her sister and everybody else in Tree Hill, hopefully she’ll find the answers.”

She also talks about collaborating with Brooke Davis (Sophia Bush) on the show. She said, “I get to collaborate with Sophia’s character Brooke, because she has a clothing line. There are a lot of relationships that she gets to come back to and be a part of that world.”

Then Mark Schwahn,one of the show’s writers jumped in and commented on if Haley’s sister might have a love interest on the show even though she’s married. He said, “I’ve never endorsed that. But, having said that, if issues arise in her marriage, then that is interesting to me. If someone is genuinely not happy in their marriage, when is it okay to start looking elsewhere?

I don’t know if that’s necessarily the road we’ll go down with Shantel’s character, Quinn, but as a storyline and as drama for the show, I think that’s interesting. “

The 7th season of “One Tree Hill” is set to premiere Monday September 14,2009 at 7pm central time on the CW.

One Tree Hill – Casting News

Although Peyton Sawyer (Hilarie Burton) and Lucas Scott (Chad Michael Murray) no longer call Tree Hill, North Carolina home, Peyton’s fledgling record label will remain open for business when the prime time drama returns to The CW this fall.

Creator Mark Schwahn tells TVGuideMagazine.com that India de Beaufort will join the cast as Miranda Stone, “a smart, successful record executive who has been sent to Tree Hill to oversee the day to day operations of boutique label Red Bedroom Records.” Beaufort is the latest in a long line of new actors including Robert Buckley, Shantel VanSanten and Jana Kramer to round out the cast for Season 7.

One Tree Hill – Casting News

A One Tree Hill rep is now confirming what I first hinted at in Ask Ausiello: The bitch is back! Danneel Harris has closed a deal to reprise her role as pot-stirrer Rachel Gatina in at least seven episodes next season, beginning with eppy 7.02. Harris made her Tree Hill debut as Brooke’s high school nemesis in season 3 but wasn’t made a series regular until season 4. She was written out in season 5 after only a handful of episodes, an apparent victim of the show’s four-year flash forward.

In other Tree Hill news, the last of next season’s new contract roles has gone to Nuevo 90210 grad Jana Kramer. She’ll play Alexis, a model who becomes the new face of Brooke’s clothing line. As previously reported, Lipstick Jungle’s Robert Buckley and relative newcomer Shantel VanSanten are also joining the cast as Nathan’s sports agent and Haley’s sister Source: EW

Who are they casting as Alexis on One Tree Hill? No one has snagged that role yet. Alexis doesn’t appear in the first episode of One Tree Hill season seven, so producers are takin’ their time to find the right person. Source: Kristin on E!Online

Do you know if One Tree Hill plans to cast an African-American or other minority in any of the roles being added? MATT: Thus far, you’re 0-for-2 on that wish, seeing as Robert Buckley and Shantel VanSanten have been cast as Nathan’s agent and Haley’s sister, Quinn, respectively. As for “Alex” (the supermodel fronting Brooke’s new clothing line), Tree Hill is looking at “all ethnicities,” so there’s some hope there. For what’s it worth, I can offer up this concrete piece of guest casting: NFL legend Jerry Rice will appear as himself in the Sept. 14 season opener. Source: TV Guide Online

The character comes to Tree Hill with a wounded heart and in search of someone new to shag something new.

Robert Buckley, who famously played Kim Raver’s Lipstick Jungle boy toy and subsequently did a turn on Privileged, will resurface this fall on the CW’s One Tree Hill. Buckley will play Clayton, the sports agent who takes on NBA-bound Nathan as a client and friend, says the Hollywood Reporter. Brian Austin Green was until recently eyed for this series regular role, but ultimately a deal could not be worked out. Buckley’s Tree Hill gig stems from a holding deal he had with Privileged producer Warner Bros. TV.

One Tree Hill is adding three new characters for Season 7, as the show moves on without longtime leads Hilarie Burton and Chad Michael Murray. The two characters remaining to be cast are Haley’s sister, Quinn, and a supermodel who goes to work for Brooke.

Brianaustingreen Though Brian Austin Green was reported to be in advanced talks to join The CW’s “One Tree Hill” earlier this week, sources close to the production tells me the man — whom I prefer to call “David Silver” — has passed on the part. Word is, The CW made B.A.G. a very healthy offer — I’m hearing $75 Gs an episode… which is what Chad Michael Murray was making, by the way — but Green ultimately decided “OTH” wasn’t for him. Hey, maybe it’s because he’s still holding out hope for a midseason “Body Politic” pick up!

I must confess, I’m kind of loving the idea of Brian Austin Green on One Tree Hill. Ausiello: Well, I hope you don’t love it too much, because I’m hearing the deal may be unraveling. Word is Green’s reps got spooked by the negative spin some bloggers were putting on their client doing OTH. As a result, they may be getting cold feet. Personally, I can’t see Green walking away from a gig that could potentially fetch him north of $1.5 million. Of course, that’s the same figure Chad Michael Murray said no to, so who knows? In their defense, $75K a week — after taxes and agency fees — does not go very far these days. Source: The Ausiello Files

[CLAYTON]
Late 20s, handsome.

A bit of a lothario, Clayton unapologetically enjoys the spoils that are available to a young, wealthy, handsome single guy, while always separating business from pleasure, and remaining fiercely protective of Nathan.

TVGuide.com’s Robyn Ross, who screened the May 18 season finale, reports that the hour “wraps things up in a little bow with no shockers to leave us hanging.

Ghost Whisperer – Latest from TV Guide Magazine

Ghost Whisperer co-stars and real-life lovebirds Jennifer Love Hewitt (Melinda) and Jamie Kennedy (Eli) didn’t let go of each other’s hands as they roamed the halls of Comic-Con in San Diego over the weekend. I managed to get a few minutes with them, as well as their co-stars, Camryn Manheim (Delia) and Christoph Sanders (Ned) and producers Ian Sander and P.K. Simonds to spill secrets about their new season, premiering Sept. 25.

Love, Jaime, you two are obviously inseparable. Does that mean we’ll see more Melinda/Eli scenes this season?
Love Hewitt: Hopefully, yeah. I think they’re going to come up with fun stuff for us to do. We got to do a fun scene the other day that was funny and heartfelt. Eli and Melinda are sort of partners in crime and they share their weird gifts.

Camryn, Ned, how does the show’s five-year jump effect your characters?
Manheim: My son is dating girls and sucking face and I’m not super happy about that.
Sanders: I’m in college studying the paranormal. Eli is teaching one of my classes. It’s great to finally play my own age. Ned was 16, and now he’s 21 like me.
Manheim: Delia has rented the store next to Same As It Never Was, and has started her real estate business. She’s also dating several men.

Jamie, we’re going to meet some of Eli’s family this season?
Kennedy: Yeah. My dad, Ray, is being played by Barry Newman.
Love Hewitt: We have Barry Bostwick in the same episode playing his dad’s friend and business partner, Don. And we have the amazing Christine Estabrook (Desperate Housewives’ Martha Huber) playing Eli’s mother, Evelyn.

What is Eli’s relationship like with his parents?
Love Hewitt: Not normal.
Kennedy: My dad and I have a strange relationship. My mother and I have a good relationship. The episode I’m filming now is crazy. The bomb’s keep getting dropped. It’s something that’s either going to work or people are going to think this is really weird. It’s something that’s not addressed normally in television.
Love Hewitt: Not everyone on the show has to necessarily be alive.
Simonds: We realized because of Eli’s comic relationship with the dead, it might be fun to bring characters on who might give us eyeballs on the other side. This season there’s going to be some storytelling that involves things that ghosts can see that we can’t.

What powers does Melinda’s 5-year-old son, Aidan, possess?
Sander: He’s a special child. He has the gifts that he has and much more. He can see things she can’t, and sense things she can’t. What that lets us do is reveal a new dimension we haven’t seen before. There are beings on this other plane who are wonderful, magical forces of good. And some are the direct opposite. There’s a new enemy that we’ve never grappled with before. Also, sometimes there are things that don’t want to be seen. Shadows perhaps.

Ghost Whisperer – Comic- Con Spoilers

Thanks to bookwrm74 from TWoP for the following.

1) It’s confirmed that the show IS jumping five years in the future, which isn’t really a shock to any of us by now, though I realize I’m among the few who really likes this idea since I hated where they left off last season!

2) Ned’s in college and dating. Delia, too, will be dating. My reaction: *sigh* Can’t someone get a storyline that doesn’t involve dating?! On the plus side, I tend to love the ghost stories set in college, so hopefully Ned being there will give us some good ones.

3) We’re going to meet Eli’s parents. My reaction: Just what I’ve always dreamed of…not! I would rather learn more about ANY of the other characters’ families…and, hey, rememember that whole plotline with Melinda and her dad and brother? Well, I remember, but it seems the writers don’t!

4) Jim and Melinda do in fact have a son, and his name is Aidan. They also confirmed that he’ll be even more powerful than Melinda. My reaction: not sure what to think here…I don’t care at all that it’s a son, as I never saw the need for Melinda to have a daughter instead and think interesting parenting issues related to her own relationship with her parents can be an issue regardless of her child’s gender…if the writers bother exploring those issues at all, that is! As for him being powerful…well, er, at least that’ll make his scenes more interesting than the typical ‘cutesy precocious children’ scenes we see on most other shows IMO.

5) JLH is directing the first episode of S5 and also the 100th episode of the series.

6) They’re playing it coy as to whether we’ll see Homer the Ghost Dog again this season, which would honestly be my favorite spoiler of all—by far!

s Son Aidan Clancy will be 5, Casting Under Way

Episode 5.01: Season Premiere Airdate: September 2009

Casting for 5-year-old Aiden Clancy have begun. As said in spoilers below, the show is planning a five-year jump between the season 4 finale and the season 5 premiere, meaning that Jim and Melinda’s son will be 5 years old at the start of the season. Aiden is described as a normal but sometimes serious boy who sees ghosts. When playing at a friend’s house, Aiden sees the ghost of sad and scary man who is bruised and has a cut on his head. Aiden pretends he wants to play with cars but in fact he wants a reason to get close to the ghost and talk to him. He learns that the man doesn’t remember who he is but remembers he got hurt after hurting someone else first. Melinda, who was chit chatting with the other mother, arrives on the scene and asks Aiden if he wants to go. He says no as he wants to help people just like his mother does. Source: SpoilerFix.com

A Ghost Whisperer insider confirms that producers of the CBS drama are toying with the idea of kicking the new season off five years into the future. The move would allow the show to introduce Jim and Melinda’s son as a pre-schooler instead of as a newborn. As you’ll recall, the season ended with Melinda learning that her offspring would possess psychic powers even greater than her own. Probably a tough story to do with a burping, teething toddler.

Brianna and Gwen had a falling out after Brianna told Gwen’s boyfriend that she made out with another guy. So Gwen blamed Brianna for her boyfriend dumping her which could explain why Gwen is now haunting Brianna. One of the spooky happenings is a chain email that Brianna received from Gwen’s email adress a few days after the later died. The email said that if it wasn’t forwarded before the day was over, she or someone she loved would suffer. The email also clearly stated that it should not be deleted or bad things would continue happening. Brianna is afraid because she deleted said email.

Jennifer Love Hewitt Talks Ghost Whisperer, Love & Marriage

If special effects like a passenger plane falling out of the sky, scaryass ghosts popping out of nowhere or some fancy-schmancy, gruesome makeup are what you love about Ghost Whisperer, we might have some bad news for you. As we all know, times are tough and even successful television shows are feeling the pinch. At least that’s what Jennifer Love Hewitt, star and coproducer of Ghost Whisperer, told us when we caught up with her at the Monte Carlo Television Festival this week.

The star told reporters about the show’s cost-cutting methods for next season and even dished on her romance with Jamie Kennedy… “We are a special effects show, so some of our special effects stuff has had to be cut in half,” she said. “We haven’t been able to do any actor raises for season five. We’ve had to cut budgets here and there. They have also been talking about actually shooting our show on HD to save money.” On the upside, J.Love’s looking forward to her maternal storylines for next season: “So far, the series has been about her talking to ghosts, but also keeping herself safe and fighting the dark side. Now, she’s not only looking out for herself, but looking out for a child as well.” Her child, of course, is a baby boy who has “the gift.”

Ghostly whispers about next season (yes, next!), include: Dr. Jim (?!), a certain baby’s special gifts, the “Book of Changes” and a possible Grandview space-time continuum!

Are we going to see more of the Watchers on Ghost Whisperer? Ghost Whisperer show runner P.K. Simonds says we will “definitely” see more Watchers and begin to learn about how the “very important” Book of Changes relates to their abilities: “Over the very, very long span of time that they’ve been watching, [the Watchers] have observed that history tends to repeat itself. That gives them a certain ability to make a pretty good educated guess about what the future is. They are able to know something about what’s taking shape, let’s say, in a character’s womb. And yes, it’s possible to know certain things about the gift that might be growing.”

Do you have any inside info about Ghost Whisperer? Show runner P.K. Simonds broke the news to us that Melinda is preggers with Jim’s baby, but that’s not all he had to say about Ghost Whisperer’s newest castmember: It’s a “very special baby with an important role to play,” who will inherit unique abilities from Melinda. But Melinda’s “new, young apprentice,” says Simonds, also possesses “other kinds of gifts that we haven’t explored on the show yet.”

So great that Jim remembered himself on Ghost Whisperer, but what’s next? Do they still have two guys playing one character? According to Ghost Whisperer show runner P.K. Simonds, “We might catch a couple of glimpses” of Kenneth Mitchell, the actor who plays Sam, during the remainder of the season, but that’s it. And we’ll see David Conrad as Jim, but everyone on the show still perceives him as Sam. “He can’t resume [his Jim life] exactly, because Sam Lucas doesn’t have a license to practice emergency medicine, but obstacles are also opportunities. He finds a new direction that actually allows him to go after a specific dream he’s always had.” Like, say, Jim’s dream of medical school? Looks like Grandview residents might eventually enjoy Jim’s bedside manner via Dr. Sam Lucas… Source: Kristin on E!Online

Ghost Whisperer – Season 4 DVD Artwork

Not too many details are available yet, but specs provided show it will be anamorphic widescreen video, English 5.1 audio, and a running time of 1015 minutes. Bonus material isn’t officially revealed yet, but previous releases are an indication that fans should be able to look forward to commentary tracks, featurettes, and the third run of “The Other Side” webisodes to all be included.

Grey’s Anatomy – Season 6 Official Description

Seems like the doctors of Seattle Grace Hospital are always fighting for something, from access to cutting-edge surgeries to relationships to patients’ lives. And they don’t always win.

After a long, hard struggle, Meredith Grey (Ellen Pompeo) and Derek Shepherd (Patrick Dempsey) may have finally won the battle for each other’s hearts, sealing their love with vows written on, of all things, a blue post-it note.

One battle the staff of Seattle Grace may be losing is saving the lives of two of their own, Izzie Stevens (Katherine Heigl) and George O’Malley (T.R. Knight). And Alex Karev (Justin Chambers), Izzie’s new husband, is left holding his breath until next season’s premiere along with the rest of us.

Tough-loving Dr. Miranda Bailey (Chandra Wilson) is fighting her own battles. She faces the very real possibility of losing her husband over her extreme dedication to her career.

Cristina Yang (Sandra Oh) is fighting her relationship fears while her on-again-off-again boyfriend Owen Hunt (Kevin McKidd) fights the emotional scars that he brought home from Iraq.

Callie Torres (Sara Ramirez) is fighting for her family’s respect and support as her new relationship with Arizona Robbins (Jessica Capshaw) blossoms into the healthy romance she needs.

Mark Sloan (Eric Dane) is trying to overcome his past life as a lothario and become a better man—with or without the help of Lexie Grey (Chyler Leigh). Perhaps Lexie is too young for him after all.

And Richard Webber (James Pickens, Jr.), The Chief, is fighting to keep his hospital together and to find some way to forgive himself for his past mistakes.

Grey’s Anatomy can be as complicated as any neurosurgery, with episodes that will make you laugh out loud, cry your eyes out and cheer its victories—whether they involve saving a patient’s life or sealing that kiss we’ve all been hungering to witness.

Grey’s Anatomy – Fall preview

Where we left off: Derek and Meredith wrote marriage vows, Izzie’s cancer nearly bested her and George flatlined.

Bye, George: Did you hear? George doesn’t make it. “It’s going to be sad and painful,” executive producer Krista Vernoff tells Us.

Love fills the void: Cristina and Owen forge ahead (“The relationship is less fragile,” McKidd says); Mark and Lexie are “freaking adorable,” says Vernoff; and MerDer cohabit blissfully, though Pompeo’s October due date will necessitate a unique plot. And Izzie? Her health is better; her union to Alex not so much. Marrying under duress, says Vernoff, creates “a complicated dynamic.”

Small blurb on the pic says: All six couples likely won’t make it to the end of the season intact, says Vernoff.

Grey’s Anatomy – James Pickens, Jr. Dishes on Season 6

The first three episodes of Grey’s Anatomy’s sixth season have officially been shot, and original cast member James Pickens, Jr., says he is pleased with what looks to be an interesting season coming up for his character, Dr. Richard Webber (a.k.a. the Chief).

“He has to do a lot of soul-searching to do and has to make some decisions that might change the direction of hospital and/or his life,” the actor told TV Guide. “It is going to have the interns and residents on pins and needles, because they don’t know where their careers are going to go from here.”

“When we left off last season, the hospital was struggling. It had lost its good rating, and [the Chief] spent a good part of the season trying to woo new doctors, getting fancy new machines, and accepting headline-grabbing surgeries,” adds Pickens. “Seattle Grace hospital is his baby, and we know that he’ll do whatever to get that rating back up. Some of his methods will be conventional and some not so conventional. We will see that continue to play out over the course of this season.”

Like everyone else on staff, James Pickens, Jr., echoed previous statements when he explained that the Chief will be greatly affected by George O’Malley’s passing. “The atmosphere has been a little heavy, somber, because they lost one of their own,” Pickens said. “His death affects each member of the staff differently. Everyone feels responsible in some way. In typical Chief style, he will try to hold the place together and keep a stiff upper lip, but it affects him quite deeply.”

Grey’s Anatomy – Premiere Details

After watching the first episode of Grey’s Anatomy (the first hour at least), I can confirm what virtually everyone in the cast had been telling – or warning – us: it’s going to be a very dark season. And why not, George (T.R. Knight) is gone, and while creator Shonda Rhimes appeared like she did everything in her power to ease up the viewers to a George-less Grey’s Anatomy, it just wouldn’t work. Because while there are fans who may not have liked George, in Seattle Grace, everybody liked him. Just how loved George was will be made clear on how people will react to his death.

But let’s not spill too much, shall we?

Some details. There will be: a severed arm, a harrowingly short and strange funeral scene (you’ll know what I mean with the strange part after watching it, trust me), an appearance by George’s mom, talk about George’s man-part, and people reacting in strange, strange ways to his death. While there were those who did the requisite crying and staring into space, Grey’s Anatomy fans should watch out for the more pronounced reactions, including one or two life-changing ones. In short, the episode will be all about George, and rightly so.

Meanwhile, the person who is probably the least affected with George’s passing gets her own storyline. Arizona (newly regularized Jessica Capshaw) will try to do her job while virtually everyone around her is still reeling from what happened. As seen on one of the promos, there is also the matter of the Chief (James Pickens, Jr.) and Derek (Patrick Dempsey) in talks over the whole taking over the chief of surgery position – but maybe “in talks” is too soft a term.

On a final note, to me, the talk between George’s mom and one of the surgeons proved to be one of the more heart-breaking scenes in an episode that in itself is heartbreaking enough. But don’t take my word for it. Catch Grey’s Anatomy when it returns on September 24 on ABC.

Grey’s Anatomy – Exclusive Look at George O’Malley’s Funeral

George O’Malley’s funeral on the heartbreaking Grey’s Anatomy two-hour season opener on September 24 will reverberate through the halls of Seattle Grace long after the dead doc’s casket is closed. Nearly everyone will be present—including a frail Izzie in a headscarf—to mourn George’s passing at a graveside service attended by George’s mom (but not by his ex, Callie). A show source tells me that Meredith will deal with the death in a “very Meredith-like” way. “The doctors are processing this huge moment of grief,” says Jessica Capshaw, whose Dr. Arizona Robbins will be holding down the fort and attending to patients. “My character previously lost her brother, so I’ll be helping Callie process this horrible loss.”

Likewise, Dr. Owen Hunt will be assisting Cristina through her mourning process. “Owen is so used to losing colleagues that he’ll become a rock for others to help them deal with it,” says Kevin McKidd about his Iraq-vet character. “Cristina is in denial about it, and he’s there for her at that moment when she actually realizes what has happened.”

Cristina is also expected to finally open up to Owen about her baggage with her ex, Burke, who left her at the altar in 2007. And later on in the upcoming season, a hospital vacancy will be filled by someone who shares a past with Owen. That, Kevin promises, will “shake things up.”

Grey’s Anatomy – 6×05 – Callie & Arizona

The romance between ‘Grey’s Anatomy”s Callie (Sara Ramirez) and Arizona (Jessica Capshaw, now a series regular) will have to endure some not-so-divine intervention when Dr. Torres’ father returns to Seattle — with a “heavenly helper” in tow.

Emmy Award winner Hector Elizondo will reprise his role as Mr. Torres in the fifth episode of the coming season, AOL TV has learned exclusively. Bringing about Dad’s latest drop-by? His desire to make amends with the daughter he disowned last spring when he learned that she had taken a female lover.

Though Callie and her father exchanged harsh words and parted ways back then — forcing Callie to cede her status as a Trust Fund Baby — Mr. Torres is now determined to heal the rift. So he’s enlisted a bit of help from “above” … yep, he believes the work of a priest can right past wrongs.

Can Callie and Arizona withstand the meddling of a father and a Father? Heaven help us all.

Grey’s Anatomy – Nora Zehetner and Robert Baker joining the cast

It’s a prescription for professional rivalry when Grey’s Anatomy introduces a trio of new doctors during its sixth season.

Nora Zehetner and Robert Baker have been cast as two of the recurring residents surfacing in Episode 5, TVGuideMagazine.com has learned exclusively. Zehetner (familiar to TV fans from her runs on Heroes and Everwood) will play a doc described by a source as “feisty, very smart and competitive.” As such, she is poised to butt heads with at least one member of Meredith Grey’s posse. Baker, from The CW’s short-lived Valentine, has been cast as the seemingly nicest of the new residents, who may be hiding a nastier side.

The casting of these recurring players comes as Grey’s prepares to bid adieu to T.R. Knight’s George (in the two-hour season opener) and accomodate Ellen Pompeo’s maternity leave. But the precise why of the docs’ arrival is the big mystery here—and one that series boss Shonda Rhimes isn’t willing to reveal.

We now all know that Izzie will live, and George dies.

Grey’s Anatomy – Katherine Heigl takes leave of absence

Katherine Heigl won’t have to worry about putting in long hours on the Grey’s Anatomy set for much longer. Sources confirm to me exclusively that the actress is taking a five-episode hiatus from the ABC drama to go shoot the Greg Berlanti-directed romantic comedy Life as We Know It.

ABC and Grey’s producers have accommodated Heigl’s busy film schedule before, but this is the first time they have given her permission to leave the show for an extended period of time. I’m told Heigl’s absence will be explained on screen, although it’s not clear what prompts Izzie to take off. (Marital trouble with Alex? A trip home to see mom? A Denny sighting in the Caribbean?)


The fact that Heigl was granted such a lengthy leave of absence is surprising in light of the public tongue-lashing ABC president Stephen McPherson gave her last month for complaining about a 17-hour work day. Also, Heigl’s departure — which starts this month and will kick in on screen around November — will almost certainly overlap with co-star Ellen Pompeo’s maternity leave. Translation: Grey’s will be without Izzie and Meredith at the same time!

Of course, Grey’s boss Shonda Rhimes warned me over the summer that change would be in the air this season. ”Eventually, everybody is going to leave the show,” admitted the exec, citing T.R. Knight’s exit and the temporary loss of Pompeo. ”So we’re looking at [ways] we can mess with the structure now…. Season 6 is about finding the longevity of the show and figuring out if there is a future for this show beyond these characters.”

Not so coincidentally, Grey’s recently announced it was adding three new doctors to its rotation: Nora Zehetner, Robert Baker, and Jesse Williams are joining the cast as recurring residents/ medical professionals.

Thoughts? Worried you won’t recognize Seattle Grace this season without George, Mer, and Izzie? Or are you psyched that this probably means more screen time for your other favorites? Sound off below!

Remember the haunting image of an army-clad George waiting outside the elevator for Izzie in the season finale? Well, it wasn’t supposed to be George standing there. The scene was originally shot with Jeffrey Dean Morgan’s Denny playing the role of Izzie’s heavenly escort. But as Grey’s boss Shonda Rhimes explains to me exclusively, “I received the first cut [of the finale] on a Friday and something didn’t feel right. All weekend long something was bugging me. And then I woke up Monday morning and it hit me, ‘My God, it’s George! When the elevator opens, it should be George we see.'” There was just one problem. Actually, there were two problems. And to find out what they were and how they got resolved (apologies in advance) pick up the new issue of Entertainment Weekly, on sale Friday!… One of the two problems involved Katherine Heigl’s location at the time of Shonda’s epiphany. That’s all you’re getting. You have to pick up the mag for the rest…. The other problem involved what T.R. Knight did to his head after production wrapped. Now I’m really done.

‘Grey’s Anatomy’ exclusive: The George story you’ll never see

Source: The Ausiello Files

Tr-knight-greys_lcommon knowledge that T.R. Knight declined Grey’s Anatomy boss Shonda Rhimes’ request to briefly return in season 6 to give his It’s now terminal George some closure. says in this week’s Entertainment Weekly cover story. “[He’d] emotionally walked “I kind of get it,” the series’ creator away.” Fans, however, may not be quite as chill when they hear the killer story she had planned for him. In this fall’s season premiere, George will succumb to the injuries he sustained after getting mowed down by that bus in last May’s finale. But that wasn’t supposed to be the last we saw of him. Says Rhimes, the episode was then going to flash back to the hours during which George was missing, from when he left the hospital to when he returned later on as a disfigured John Doe. “I wanted to see his last day [alive] really badly,” she says. “What I thought was interesting was the idea of, we now know it’s the last day of someone’s life, [so wedifferently than [we] would any other time.” Viewers would have also seen firsthand how George’s split-second decision to save that girl’s life ’re] looking at it cost him his own. “I wanted to see the moment he leapt in front of the bus,” Rhimes confirms. “I wanted to bookend the episode [so that] the first time you see him leap in front of the bus, it’s really scary. But the second time you see it, he’s a hero. “I thought it would have been a beautiful episode,” she continues, adding that, had we seen those missing hours, “We might have learned something new about George.” Although disappointed she wasn’t able to tell that story, Rhimes insists she’s content with how George’s five-year arc concluded. “We really got to see him grow up,” she says. “It really does feel like we watched a full evolution of a character, and I feel good about that.” Still, I would’ve loved to have seen those flashbacks. What about you? Do you wish Knight had stuck around a little longer to give us George’s last day? Or do you agree with him that the final shot of his character standing outside the elevator was “the best way to leave it”?

Katherine Heigl Ponders Her Grey’s Fate

Dr. Izzie Stevens could be in a coma or even dead when Grey’s Anatomy resolves its Season 5 cliffhanger on Sept. 24, says Katherine Heigl. “You last saw Izzie flat-lining, so… I’m either there as a ghost ‘on the other side,’ or I survived a disease [stage IV metastatic melanoma] no one survives,” Heigl said during a Monday visit to Late Show with David Letterman.

When Letterman asked how she could be pulling 17-hour workdays — as Heigl had shared earlier in the sit-down — if Izzie isn’t alive and kicking, she countered, “What if I was in bed in a coma? They could do that.” Heigl shared that it was “a little weird” reporting to the Grey’s set last week without pal T.R. Knight around. (Last month, the actor, who played George O’Malley on the show, negotiated an early release from his contract with the ABC drama.) When asked for how much longer she will stick with Grey’s, Heigl said with a trace of sarcasm, “That’s what I keep wondering.”

Heigl, who is contractually bound to Grey’s for another two seasons, said that while she hopes the show enjoys the longevity of, say, ER, which ran 15 years, she’d like to continue playing Izzie “maybe not quite that long.”Heigl stars opposite Gerard Butler (300) in the romantic comedy The Ugly Truth, in theaters July 24

More Info on T.R. Knight’s Exit

Fans were shocked when T.R. Knight made the surprising decision to leave Grey’s Anatomy, the hit medical drama that launched him to fame. This week, in an exclusive interview with Entertainment Weekly, the actor reveals what led him to his decision, and he also candidly discusses “Isaiahgate,” coming out of the closet, and leaving his friends at Seattle Grace.

This fall, Knight was surprised to see his character George O’Malley all but vanish from the show — for the first nine episodes of season 5, he appeared on screen a total of only 48 minutes, compared to 114 for Sandra Oh’s Christina. Still, due to what he calls a gradual “breakdown of communication” between himself and exec producer Shonda Rhimes, the actor chose not to ask his boss what was going on with his character. Instead, he simply asked to leave. “My five-year experience proved to me that I could not trust any answer that was given [about George],” he explains. “And with respect, I’m going to leave it at that.”

Though he was unknown when Grey’s premiered, Knight soon emerged as one of the breakout stars (and even earned a supporting actor Emmy nod in 2007), but it was what came to be known as “Isaiahgate” that would catapult him to household-name status. After Isaiah Washington referred to Knight as a “f—-t” during an on-set argument with co-star Patrick Dempsey, the tabloids caught wind of it, Knight came out in the press, and Washington was fired. While Knight doesn’t specifically fault Rhimes for how the situation was handled behind the scenes, he says the exec producer was among those who tried to discourage him from coming out: “I think she was concerned about having my statement come out so close to the [initial] event.” Rhimes denies this: “I said, ‘If you want to come out, that’s awesome.'”

Knight returned to work on season 4, but the actor struggled with the story line in which George cheated on his wife Callie (Sara Ramirez) with Izzie (Katherine Heigl). And once George went MIA from the beginning of season 5, the star came to the conclusion that his character had “expired.” Today, Knight is at peace with his choice toleave: “There just comes a time when it’s so clear that moving on is the best decision,” he says. But at first, his castmate and friend Heigl tried to talk him out of it. “I didn’t think it was the right decision,” she says. “I felt like some of the problems could be worked through. But by the time it came to fruition, I was [glad] for him because he was ready to go.”

Knight knows he’s taking a risk walking away from his top 10 show and $14 million contract. “From an outsider’s perspective, I get the [impression that] ‘He’s just a spoiled actor…he doesn’t know how good he has it,'” he says. “There are a lot of people who would like to be in my position. But in the end, I need to be fulfilled in my work.”

For more on TR Knight — including how he felt when George was back-burnered, what he really thought of the “Gizzie” story line, and where you can see him next– plus what’s in store for the other docs on Grey’s Anatomy, pick up the new issue of Entertainment Weekly on stands Friday July 24.

Grey’s Exclusive: Mitch Pileggi Returns for Season Premiere

Source: TV Guide Online

Grey’s Anatomy has prescribed an encore for X-Files alum Mitch Pileggi. Pileggi, who first guest-starred on the ABC drama toward the end of Season 3, will return for the two-hour Season 6 premiere, again playing hospital board chairman Larry Jennings, TVGuide.com has learned exclusively. Check out photos from Grey’s Anatomy When Pileggi first appeared as Jennings, the Seattle Grace bigwig required medical attention after a trip to the Amazon left him with a carnivorous fish lodged in an unfortunate part of the anatomy. For his encore, Pileggi’s hospital mucky-muck will have official business to tend to. It perhaps relates to not one but two staff doctors, Izzie Stevens and George O’Malley, looking the Grim Reaper in the eye. Check out more of last season’s cliff-hangers
Grey’s Anatomy‘s season premiere airs Thursday, Sept. 24, at 9 pm/ET.

Has Grey’s Anatomy figured out how they’re going to work around Ellen Pompeo‘s maternity leave yet? Erm. Grey’s is such a hairy show to report on. We’ll tell you this, and maybe you’ll forgive us for taking the long way around. A source tells us that ABC didn’t want Rachel Griffiths (who gave birth to her third child on June 21) to skip any episodes of Brothers & Sisters and that production was pushed back a week to accommodate her maternity leave. What does that mean for Grey’s? Well, if ABC doesn’t want a Griffiths-less B&S, you could assume (just assume) that they really wouldn’t want a Pompeo-less Grey’s Anatomy. Pompeo’s due this fall though, so there would be no real way to push back production. Solution? Well, we’re just spit-balling ideas here, because no one’s confirming anything, but you could do what our source tells us is a possible scenario for dealing with Ellen Pompeo’s maternity leave: When E.P. gets back from her baby break, shoot a bunch of Meredith Grey scenes in succession, and then have your editors work overtime to slot her scenes into the episodes that were shot/produced before her return, therefore giving the audience the full Meredith Grey experience with no gaps.

Sources confirm that Chandra Wilson will be directing an episode of Grey’s Anatomy this season, although we’ve actually heard that another actor was negotiating to direct an episode of Grey’s Anatomy this season, as well as make a couple of other tweaks to his/her contract to allow him/her more creative and personal freedom. Source: Kristin on E!Online

Color me shocked that Katherine Heigl isn’t leaving Grey’s Anatomy. Is it possible we’re being duped in some way? MATT: I must say that the lack of fanfare surrounding ABC’s confirmation of Heigl’s status — especially when juxtaposed with the flurry of official statements regarding T.R. Knight’s departure — made me raise one of my overgrown eyebrows. “Sure, she’s staying… for just one more episode,” I cynically hypothesized. But one of my best sources insists that this is not a case of clever semantics, and that Heigl’s Izzie will have a significant presence in the fall. Source: TV Guide Online

ABC Makes It Official: Heigl Is Staying on Grey’s

Source: TV Guide Online

Katherine Heigl will return to Grey’s Anatomy for Season 6, according to a statement from ABC. The news comes just hours after T.R. Knight’s Grey’s Anatomy exit was finally confirmed — by both the actor and series creator Shonda Rhimes. ABC declined TVGuide.com’s request for further comment from Rhimes (who did issue a statement on Friday regarding Knight’s departure). Similarly, Heigl’s rep said no statement was forthcoming from the actress. The announcement ends months of speculation over Heigl’s future with the show. In June 2008, she made statements about her Emmy worthiness that appeared to cast aspersion on the Grey’s Anatomy writing staff. Not long after that controversy, there were reports that Rhimes would exact a sort of “payback” by killing off Izzie Stevens, Heigl’s character. Seemingly confirming such speculation, Izzie was diagnosed with stage IV metastatic brain cancer and appeared to flat-line in the season-finale episode. In other Grey’s news, ABC also officially announced that Jessica Capshaw, whose Dr. Arizona Robbins has been a breath of fresh air in the often angsty halls of Seattle Grace, will continue with the show — now as a series regular.

Katherine Heigl Signs Contract for Grey’s Anatomy Season Six

The cast lineup for season six of Grey’s Anatomy is becoming clearer by the day. Following on Marc Malkin’s report last month that star T.R. Knight is leaving the series, a source confirms that Katherine Heigl “will be back.” But what’s the official word from the show bosses and Heigl’s people? Reps for the hit ABC series and for Katherine Heigl both declined to comment. Source: EOnline

T.R. Knight Statement on leaving Grey’s Anatomy

“Leaving Grey’s Anatomy was not an easy decision for me to make. I am extremely grateful to have had the opportunity to play this character and will miss my fellow cast and crew very much. I continue to wish them the very best, and wholeheartedly thank all of the fans who have supported me and the show with such passion and enthusiasm.”

Series creator Shonda Rhimes just followed with her own statement: “I think I speak for the entire Grey’s Anatomy family when I say we wish T.R. Knight the best in his future endeavors. He is an incredibly talented actor and a person whose strength of character is admired by all of us.”

It’s official: T.R. Knight exits ‘Grey’s Anatomy’

Greys-anatomy-tr-knight_l Fall’s still months away, but one of last season’s bigger Grey’s Anatomy cliffhangers has already been resolved: Sources confirm to me exclusively that T.R. Knight’s wish to be released from his contract has been granted. The official decision, I’m told, came down in the past few days, just as many of his castmates began receiving their formal pickup letters from ABC.

What does this news mean for George? What will Knight do next? And what about Izzie? Find out after the jump…

The actor’s exit closes yet another rocky chapter for the embattled primetime soap, one that opened with Isaiahgate and worsened when, amid rumors that Knight was clashing with series creator Shonda Rhimes, George O’Malley was backburnered. Finally, Knight grew so fed up with his character’s lack of storyline that he asked if he could check out three years before his deal expired. After that, all indications were that he would be let go, although Rhimes didn’t make a final decision until recently. (Contractually speaking, she had until June 30 to make up her mind.)

Last month, Rhimes told me that George’s relatively light storyline this year was the result of the normal “ebbs and flows” of ensemble television. But she did acknowledge that he was intentionally written lighter during the last half of the season so that viewers wouldn’t think it odd that he was absent from the season finale — something that was necessary to preserve the episode’s biggest twist: that George was actually a disfigured John Doe who had been hit by a bus. “I really wanted you to not notice that he wasn’t there for most of this episode,” she said. “I don’t think anybody noticed because of the way we laid it out this season.”

Knight’s departure would seem to confirm that George doesn’t survive, although fans have wondered whether Rhimes is planning to pull an Elizabeth Reaser (Jane Doe/Rebecca) and have him live, only to be replaced by another actor, thanks to plastic surgeon Sloane’s handiwork. That’s “hilarious, ridiculous,” the boss has said. However, I’ve heard that she was interested in having Knight appear in next season’s first three episodes, but a short-term deal could not be brokered.

What will Knight do now? Per an insider, the theatrically-trained thesp is in talks to start 2010 by headlining a Broadway revival of Lend Me a Tenor, the classic farce he recently did a reading of with Alfred Molina, Tony Shalhoub, and Marian Seldes.

Reps for Knight and ABC declined to comment.

Now that the question of George’s future seems to have been answered, another puzzler moves to the forefront: What’s going to happen to Katherine Heigl’s Izzie, whose life also hung in the balance in last May’s capper? Stay tuned… In the meantime, proceed to the comments and weigh in on Knight’s departure.

Exclusive: ‘Grey’s Anatomy’ promotes Jessica Capshaw

Jessica-Capshaw-Greys-Anatomy_l Finally, some good news for poor, lovelorn Callie: Grey’s Anatomy has officially promoted her on-screen leading lady, Jessica Capshaw, to a full-fledged series regular, sources confirm to me exclusively.

The news hardly comes as a surprise. Last month, series creator Shonda Rhimes all but signed off on Capshaw’s promotion when I interviewed her after the finale. “I love Jessica Capshaw,” she gushed. “And when I say love I mean love. She couldn’t be a more wonderful person, and I feel like the chemistry Arizona and Callie have feels like the Meredith and Derek chemistry to me. I find them delightful to watch.”

The ex-Practice star joined Grey’s last February as a recurring love interest for Sara Ramirez’s Callie. Her arrival came on the heels of the controversial dismissal of Brooke Smith as Callie’s girlfriend Dr. Hahn.

What do you think? Happy Capshaw is sticking around? Are you as high on Callizona as Rhimes is? Or are you still holding out hope that Dr. Hahn will one day escape from Seattle Grace’s parking lot? Sound off below!

What will happen on Grey’s Anatomy next season? Are George and Izzie goners? E! Online’s own Marc Malkin has an inside source who says that T.R. Knight is leaving Grey’s Anatomy due to issues with executive producer Shonda Rhimes. Sources tell TVGuide.com, “That story is utterly false. Nothing at all has changed in T.R.’s status.” Rhimes has also gone on record debunking new rumors that an entirely different actor would play George thanks to plastic surgery. However, we all know Shonda toed the lines of truth last season and likes to keep the audience guessing. Source: Kristin on E!Online

Chandra Wilson waiting to re-sign her contract

Although most Grey’s Anatomy fans are anxiously awaiting the fates of T.R. Knight and Katherine Heigl next season, one cast member is nervous about her own. Chandra Wilson, who plays Dr. Bailey on the hit ABC show, is still waiting to re-sign her contract to come back next season. “You know, I don’t have the slightest idea!” she said on The View Thursday when asked if she knew who was leaving the show. “I know nothing!” In fact, she lamented that she still hasn’t received word on whether she’ll be back on the show. “I’m waiting for my Disney letter saying, ‘You have the option to come back,'” she said. The company has until June 20 to send it, she added. After speculation that Heigl’s character would be killed off in the season finale of Grey’s, her and Knight’s characters appeared to have died. Still, show creator Shonda Rhimes hasn’t divulged any information on next season’s cast or story lines. Source: Us Magazine

Jessica Capshaw talks about Meredith, George and Izzie

Jessica Capshaw — who stars as Dr. Arizona Robbins in the hit ABC series — doesn’t know if Ellen Pompeo pregnancy will be written into next season’s show, and she’s equally unaware if T.R. Knight and Katherine Heigl will return (The two appeared to have died in the season finale).

“No one knows!” Capshaw, the daughter of Kate Capshaw and stepdaughter of Steven Spielberg says.

She adds: “[Show creator Shonda Rhimes] is keeping it under wraps, and I think the best thing about that is she is the guardian of the gate. It’s better that way. She doesn’t even run the risk of it coming out because nobody knows.”

Latest Grey’s Rumors Ripped as “Ridiculous,” “False” and “B.S.”

Source: TV Guide Online

Grey’s Anatomy creator Shonda Rhimes is nipping in the bud talk that the role of George — who last was seen barely alive after being mauled, mangled and mashed in a bus accident — will be recast with a new actor. “A hilarious, ridiculous rumor” is how Rhimes, via Twitter, qualified the speculation. Getting someone new to play a surgically made-over George would conveniently pave the way for T.R. Knight to vacate the role and exit the ABC serial, as has been rumored for many, many months. The increasingly dusty buzz has been that Knight’s disenchantment with his Season 5 storylines begat his conspicuously decreased screen time… which, in turn, is said to have disenchanted Knight even further.

Now, E! Online is reporting that Knight just this week negotiated his departure from Grey’s — a neat trick, seeing as he’s still on contract through Season 6, if needed. “That story is utterly false,” one well-placed source tells TVGuide.com. “Nothing at all has changed in T.R.’s status.” A second industry insider deems the aforementioned blog posting as “total B.S.” Rhimes herself recently told EW.com, “There have been lots of rumors about T.R., but T.R.’s never said anything. Take from it what you will.”

ABC entertainment boss Stephen McPherson also has weighed in on the uncertain future of Knight’s character, as well as Katherine Heigl’s ailing Izzie. “They’ve both signed on [for next season],” he told reporters at ABC’s upfront. “I can’t say whether or not they’ll both be there.” Reps for ABC and Knight declined to comment for this story.
