Gossip Girl (6 seasons, 2007–2012)Connor Paolo (Eric van der Woodsen), Jessica Szohr (Vanessa Abrams), Taylor Momsen (Jenny Humphry)For Momsen: Season 4, episode 10, “Gaslit”; for Paolo and Szohr: Season 4, episode 22, “The Wrong Goodbye” (though all three would return for cameos in the series finale, “New York, I Love You XOXO”)What “happened”: By its fourth season, Gossip Girl had become less a TV show and more a Versace-clad ouroboros willing to shill Vitamin water, ignore plot mechanics, and consume itself in a never-ending cycle of character pairings, each more ridiculous than the ideas you’d find in the average slashfic forum. And in the midst of that chaos, more than a few characters jumped ship.In the season finale, boho-chic troublemaker Vanessa has Dan Humphrey’s novel about the Upper East Side published in secret before decamping to Spain. Somewhere between seasons four and five, perpetually overlooked Eric … [Read more...] about What Happens When Actors Leave High-School-TV Shows?

We did not have a lot of father-son bonding experiences, but there was one night that year, during the time he was still healthy enough to go to work, when my younger brother was away on a school trip and my father decided that we were going to have a night together. I took the bus to his office in midtown, and he took me out to a chain steakhouse for dinner. By then I had become intensely interested in movies, and he had started to take me whenever he could. Next to him, I watched One Flew Over the Cuckoo’s Nest, Network, Rocky, Dog Day Afternoon, and Jaws, and I knew that my love of movies was something he uncomplicatedly enjoyed about me, one of the few enthusiasms we could share without tension. For all of our mutual frustrations, my father was never uninterested in me; when he said, “What’s on your mind?” he wanted to know the answer, even — perhaps especially — if it was something he hadn’t considered himself. “I’m never going … [Read more...] about Real-Life Cops, and Me
A bevy of producers, executives, and directors have provided Landis with validation. He’s become an object of loathing for his critics — most of whom direct their ire toward his conduct online, rather than his work — but that hasn’t seemed to slow his lightning-fast rise in the past five years. He already has an impressively long résumé for someone his age, having written genre-bending outings like Chronicle,American Ultra, Victor Frankenstein, and Mr. Right; written and directed Me Him Her; executive produced the TV series Channel Zero; and created and acted as lead writer for the BBC America show Dirk Gently’s Holistic Detective Agency, which is about to begin its second season. But just as impressive are the deals he’s made for products that haven’t hit the screen yet: He sold a spec for this winter’s Bright for a reported $3.5 million (an insane figure for the largely dying sector of mid-budget, non-franchise pictures), … [Read more...] about Who’s Afraid of Max Landis?
