Here’s a quick look at some of the casting announcements made recently:
Glee: Singer Olivia Newton-John is the one creator Ryan Murphy wants for his show. In the upcoming episode, the Grease star will perform a duet with…Sue Sylvester (Jane Lynch). The two will team up for a rendition of Olivia’s classic “Let’s Get Physical.”
A little over a month since the CW canceled her show, The Beautiful Life: TBL, Mischa Barton reflects and decides to move on.
“I just don’t think the time was right and that was just a really sh****y situation.” Right, because shows with gorgeous people and major drama don’t fare well on television these days.
The 23 year-old actress, who bumps shoulders with the likes of fashion designer Zac Posen, is keeping her options open when it comes to television or film.
“I’m just figuring out what my next move will be and really looking at a lot of different projects and figuring out what I want to do… These days, television is about just as good as movies… I’m looking forward to being part of something that is right in the future.”
If only she had stripped down for those promo ads—I’ll bet she’s regretting that now.

For today’s installment, we have Castle‘s Stana Katic on the left and The Beautiful Life‘s Mischa Barton on the right.
One currently stars in a show about murders while the other has a show that is DOA.
There’s some good news and bad news for Mischa Barton.
The good news? She can now shelve that “My Wisdom Teeth Put Me in the Psych Ward” story. The bad news? She now has more free time on her hands.
Despite a recent debut on the runway, The Beautiful Life has officially become the first major cancellation of the fall fashion season. The CW dimmed the lights on the Ashton Kutcher-produced show after two weeks of dismal ratings.

Season premieres: Eddie Griffin: Going for Broke, Gossip Girl, The Jay Leno Show, The Jerry Springer Show, Maury, One Tree Hill, Oprah, Lincoln Heights, The Steve Wilkos Show
- Oprah (Syndicated, check local listings): Season premiere. “Whitney Houston talks to Oprah—and no topic is off-limits. The back-to-back, two-day event begins Monday, September 14.” Explaining the “doodie bubble” incident with Bobby could actually take a lifetime.
- One Tree Hill (CW, 8pm): Season premiere. “Nathan faces a career-threatening accusation with the help of his new sports agent.” A few kinds acts with PETA later, and he’s back in the game.
- Eddie Griffin: Going for Broke (VH1, 10pm): Series premiere. “This reality series about comic Eddie Griffin’s financial foibles opens with his accountant explaining that he’s spending far more than he’s bringing in because of the many people he supports.” By the end of Season 1, one family member will have to pack up their knives while another will have their torch snuffed.
There were times, before Gossip Girl, when the CW might have started to fade into oblivion…moments when it seemed the network was still struggling. But in shows like Gossip Girl and 90210, the CW managed to strike gold. Melrose Place will premiere this fall, launching the channel toward even bigger success. So what else is in store for CW viewers?
Right now, the rumored Gossip Girl spinoff is a no-go. That’s not currently on the CW’s plate, though fans will no doubt keep the hope of a new GG series alive. Talks for Gossip Girl spinoffs are still ongoing, but it doesn’t seem they’ve settled on a sure idea yet. The Body Politic pilot (featuring Brian Austin Green and Gabrielle Union) won’t make it all the way to the schedule, either. This wasn’t the only casualty of many good pilots the CW decided to pass on…for now.

Producers Damon Lindelof and Carlton Cuse appealed to Lost fans everywhere (well, more so those that actually were lucky enough to attend Comic Con) as they graced us with answers tasty enough to almost make us forget that we still have quite awhile to go until Season Five airs on our televisions.
In the clip above, Darlton confirms that in terms of time travel, the fast forwards on Lost can in no way be altered. While the truth failed to hinder my own theories, I cannot say the same for many others’ postulations. I really wish that they could have thrown us a bigger bone, but it is still better than no tidbits to gnaw on.
In other clips (seen after the jump), the producers joke about Mischa Barton, comment on missed characters, and later swear that they actually do know what they are doing!

The O.C. native was asked to star as Georgina Sparks, a character who would bring Serena’s not-so-wholesome past to the forefront.
Although I was initially apprehensive upon hearing the news - I’d really like to see the CW program survive on its own merits - I quickly had a change of heart. If stunt casting is what it takes to get the show some attention, then I’m all for it.
But wouldn’t ya know it - Barton apparently thinks she’s too good for the series. Although she really hasn’t done anything noteworthy lately (unless you count her recent DUI and marijuana charges), her reps have advised her to pass.
You know what? Screw Barton. Let’s bring her ex-mommy, Melinda Clarke, into the fold. Now that would make things a bit more interesting!
