New rumours are circulating that Mischa is testing for a role on the new Melrose Place. Please take this story with a grain of salt as Mischa has been attached to so many TV shows in the past and nothing has ever come about. Besides, I’m sure Mischa wouldn’t have to “test” for a role on The CW, she’d pretty much be able to click her fingers. 😉
Is Mischa Barton Moving In To Melrose Place?
We haven’t seen Mischa Barton on TV since Twilight star Cam Gigandet ran Marissa Cooper off an O.C. road a few years back, but it could just be a matter of time. An industry insider tells me that Mischa is testing for a role on The CW’s Melrose Place remake today, saying the network is very excited about her.
No surprise, as they had originally wanted Barton to play Gossip Girl‘s Georgina Sparks, a part that eventually went to Michelle Trachtenberg. Seems M.B. is more interested in the idea of depicting an adult TV character.
And you? Are you into the idea of an all grown up Barton back in your living room every week? I think it’s a good move for the show. While old school Melrose fans will probably tune in for the new series’ first episode, younger viewers who are more familiar with The O.C. may watch because of Mischa.
If she does in fact land the role, she will go to work with Greek‘s Michael Rady who was cast as Jonah Miller, an aspiring filmmaker, last week. His character is said to be a lot like the original show’s Billy, played by Andrew Shue.
No word on which veteran Melrose character Mischa might be emulating. Marcia Cross‘ crazy Kimberly maybe?!
Photos from one of Mischa’s Cosmopolitan magazine shoots have been uploaded. These photos were taken by photographer Pavel Havlicek; He has also worked with Mischa a couple of times. I’m particularly a fan of the last shot in this series. Thanks to Maz for the tip.

Photos of Mischa out and about in Hollywood from February 28th have been added. Finally some new candids.
Photos from Mischa’s InStyle UK spread from a little while ago have been uploaded to the gallery. These come from photographer Kai Z. Feng’s website; he’s worked with Mischa a couple of times and the result is always very sleek. Thanks to Duyen for the tip!
Looks Mischa has signed on to star in a new comedy called The Science of Cool. IMDB is reporting that Mischa’s character will be named Jane and the official MySpace for the film and the production company are also reporting Mischa as the latest addition to the cast. For all the Friday Night Lights fans, also starring in the film is Jeremy Sumpter (who played J.D. McCoy).
There is a formula for being cool!
This is another independent film with a tiny budget of around $6 million (also according to IMDB). And from the MySpace is this take on the film: The Science of Cool promises to be a hilarious, modern take on some of the most classic 1980’s teen films such as Weird Science, Fast Times at Ridgemont High, Ferris Bueller’s Day Off, and Sixteen Candles.
Watch the trailer for Mischa’s upcoming independent drama “Don’t Fade Away”. The film also stars True Blood’s Ryan Kwaten, Beau Bridges and Ja Rule.
As promised, the stunning photos from Mischa’s current Italian Vanity Fair spread have been uploaded. I seem to say this every week lately, but this is one of my favourite shoots!
This is Mischa’s fourth editorial spread in just a couple of weeks. It’s really cool seeing her cater to different magazines and different countries. BlackBook in the US, FHM in the UK, Marie Claire in Spain and now Vanity Fair in Italy.
