“Let’s do the time warp again!” is becoming a familiar refrain for more and more
actors, now that Josh Schwartz and Stephanie Savage are filling out the cast for
their ’80s-set Gossip Girl prequel.
On the heels of Andrew McCarthy’s
hiring as the dad to Brittany Snow’s Lily, my moles tell me exclusively that Lost alum Cynthia
Watros is thisclose to a deal to play Lily’s mom, CeCe. Also coming aboard, I
hear, is Ryan Hansen, best known as Veronica Mars‘ aptly named Dick. He’ll play
Owen’s (Shiloh Fernandez) pal, Shep, who’s crushing (futilely) on Krysten Ritter’s Carol. (Hansen is currently appearing on Schwartz’ web series, Rockville.)
what do you think, peeps? Is all this gossip getting you psyched for the show?
Or did Schwartz have you at leg warmers and shoulder pads? Don’t keep it to
yourself, share with the class below. (Additional reporting by Andy Patrick)
