Anyone that’s been following the news about Gossip Girl’s spin off ‘Lily‘ will be excited to hear that they have the regular cast members all lined up and there are some great picks!
Sources confirm that the CW is in advanced talks to bring Cynthia Watros (Lost) and Andrew McCarthy (Lipstick Jungle) onboard the Gossip Girl spinoff tentatively titled Lily. Cynthia and Andrew would play CeCe and Rick Rhodes, Lily’s parents and Serena’s grandparents. (Caroline Lagerfelt plays CeCe on the current series.)
With mom and pop cast, the producers have now filled out the starting regular-castmember lineup for Lily. Yay!
And some more good news for us dual Gossip Girl-Veronica Mars fans: Reps for Ryan Hansen (Veronica Mars, Party Down) confirm that he will also hook up with Lily in the ’80s, reportedly as one of her new Valley pals.
Already onboard and previously announced:
* Brittany Snow (American Dreams, Nip/Tuck) will be young Lily Rhodes. (Kelly Rutherford plays her on the current series as a grown, much-married woman)
* Shiloh Fernandez is set to play Owen, a possible love interest for Lily.
* Our girl Krysten Ritter (Veronica Mars, Breaking Bad) will be Lily’s wild-child older sister Carol.
Also appearing in the “backdoor pilot” episode airing May 11 is No Doubt, playing themselves in the 1980s before Gwen Stefani went solo, back when they were just kids.
They all look like an awesome group…but, I am concerned by one of the choice, Andrew McCarthy from Lipstick Jungle. How is he going to be with Victory Ford (Lindsay Price) if he is on ‘Lily‘?!?!? Oh no!!
