Spotted: Chuck Bass is making his way to L.A.
That´s right, Ed Westwick AKA Chuck Bass, Upper East Side Bad Boy Billionaire is coming back to TV.
The Gossip Girl alum has been cast as one half of a Bonnie-and-Clyde-style pair of serial killers in ABC’s L.A. Crime pilot, Even better? The Bonnie to his Clyde will be played by Parenthood star Erika Christensen. We now live in a world where Chuck Bass and Julia Braverman-Graham are chillin' like villains and we love it. Playing the two detectives in the potential true crime procedural are Gabriel Luna and Adam Rothenberg, with American Horror Story's Taissa Farmiga, Darrell Brit-Gibson and Karolina Wydra also set to star in the project written by Steven Baigelman. If greenlit, the drama will look at several facets of L.A. culture — including sex and politics — in various time periods.
But these are not the only good news for Gossip Girls fans like me, because Chase Crawford AKA Golden Boy Nate Archibald is also making his way back to TV with him landing a leading role in ABC's Boom. The drama series will follow the biggest oil discovery in American history, which triggers an economic shift in North Dakota not seen since the 1849 California Gold Rush. Crawford will play Billy, a "hustler" of a man who experiences hardships when he tries to move to North Dakota with his wife to reap the benefits.
All in all, Ed Westwick‘s latest role makes Chuck Bass look like a do-good choirboy, but that doesn´t mean that we will love him any less than when he was, as I previously said Upper East Side Bad Boy Billionaire.
And Disney couldn´t just let it go.
Remember Frozen? The most profitable animated film of all time? The one that spawned the song you only just managed to get out of your head? Well, it turns out there's going to be another one.
Disney has officially announced a sequel. Jennifer Lee and Chris Buck, who co-wrote and co-directed the original, will return, and the original cast are also expected to reprise their roles. Kristen Bell should at least be involved, based on a tweet she sent out earlier.
All cynicism aside, there's nothing wrong with this news. Frozen made a lot of kids happy, along with some weird adults. A sequel will just give parents another two hours of peace on any car trip. If you're holding on to some principled objection to the idea of this sequel, I have one piece of advice for you: reindeer are better than people. Wait, wrong song. Let it go.
