Mischa Barton Joins the Cast of Gossip Girl?

Mischa Barton unfortunately won’t be joining the cast of CW’s catty prep school drama Gossip Girl.

TV Guide first reported that the 22-year-old former O.C. star had been approached to play Georgina Sparks, an old friend of reformed party girl Serena van der Woodsen (Blake Lively).

But her rep tells Us Weekly, “She will not be on the show. She was approached, but her reps passed.”

FYI: Josh Schwartz created both The O.C. and Gossip Girl.

All-new episodes of Gossip Girl star Monday, April 21.

    Yes, she turned it down! She would totally ruin the show.

    Wow, if this is true she is not only untalented, but dumb. As if her career is on fire or something. It’s not even smoldering.

    Thank God! The O.C. was my favourite show, but she completely SUCKED. She was wooden and stiff in every single scene. One of the best things the creators did was killing Marissa off.

    I’ve only seen clips of Gossip Girl so far, but it seems like a really good show and I’m sure she would have ruined it just like she nearly did to The O.C.

    But yeah, she’s very dumb for turning it down. It’s a popular show and it’s pretty obvious all of her films are gonna completely flop.

    She would have totally ruined GG. The show’s too good for someone like her.

    As a Gossip Girl fan, thank God. She’s an awful actress. But it is so stupid for her to pass. It’s not like she has anything else going for her career right now.

    Lol, she passed on a successful show. I will think up a logical reason for her and suggest she doesn’t want to seem repetitive in her roles.

    i wouldn’t call this “unfortunate”…

    Her reps rock!!! Yeah, no. We don’t want her to ruin OC.

    She’s waaaaay too good for OC. So go ahead. Never mind us. Go do something else we won’t see.

    People undercredit how much she’s responsible for the steady loss of viewership on the OC during those first 3 seasons. Between her unbearable “acting” and most of the screen time devoted to REPETITIVE & boring storylines revolving around how great Marissa is & how madly in love with her everyone on earth is supposed to be, nearly half the original audience lost interest in the OC after the first 3 years. it was a hit when it started, but you can’t revolve a show around the worst actor & expect people to keep watching. that’s a BIG drop in 3 years. mischa was unbearable for millions to the point where not even cohen-isms could make tuning in worth it.

    plus, people inevitably tune out when the main characters go to college (too many new characters & settings), so they were already looking at further viewership loss going into season 4. the show had ratings trouble BEFORE they killed marissa, and mostly BECAUSE OF marissa (actually, because of mischa, since a good actress could have really done something with the part). killing her just angered her tween fans, who were at this point a large % in what viewers they had left, and sped up cancellation. it’s funny how people look at the end result & mistakenly credit her for the show’s success. it was doomed from the day they cast her.

    i know GG is having ratings trouble, but seriously, mischa ruins everything. she makes leighton look like an oscar-winner.
