The casting calls, which we first spotted here and here, make no mention of Serena, Blair or Dan himself, which might pull steam out of the hypothesis, BUT interestingly enough, the call for Nate and Eric look-a-likes is grouped together, ala their book-a-like, Derek. Double hmm!
Might the renewed interest in Dan’s book ― due to the, um, coughcough TWITTER BATTLE (seriously?) ― have re-launched interest in its film rights, too? And where are the players in the central love story, that of the Queen B and her Lonely Boy? And why aren’t they casting famous guest stars to fill the roles, Scream/Stab-style? (We hear the ratings could use a bump.. Just sayin’.)
Either way, we’re ALL IN on this batch of light-hearted fun, should it come to be! In fact, after all the baby/wedding/love-triangle dramz of the first half of the season, we could use a bit more silliness on the UES.
How about you? In favor of seeing scenes from Dan’s bestseller brought to life or think the “fictional” stories are better left in their original form in seasons past?
