Mischa Barton Offered Role on Gossip Girl

by at . Comments

We liked The OC at the start, but we're not all that thrilled about recent rumors saying Mischa Barton is joining the Gossip Girl cast.

TV Guide's Michael Ausiello reports that Mischa Barton being offered a role is now confirmed, but what isn't certain is whether or not a deal will actually be struck for her to play the recurring role of Georgina Sparks.

Georgina is reportedly going to a "scheme queen" who brings the past of Serena van der Woodsen (Blake Lively) into her present. She would be introduced to the show, presumably, when it returns April 21.

Will Mischa Barton and Blake Lively be co-stars on Gossip Girl?

Executive producer Josh Schwartz, of course, killed Mischa Barton off of The OC, and how runs Gossip Girl, the new CW hit series.

What do you think, Gossip Girl fans? Will Barton fit in with the Gossip Girl cast? Or is the show better off with lesser-known stars?

We believe the latter, as we've really enjoyed the work of relative unknowns Blake Lively and Leighton Meester, but want to hear your views.

UPDATE: Mischa's rep has told Us Weekly that the deal is off: "She will not be on the show. She was approached, but passed." Don't get us wrong, we're happy she bailed, but she could've let us talk about it a bit ...

No.
Mischa had her turn, she should let everyone else have theirs.
I don't want Gossip Girl to turn anything out like the OC.
When the OC's run ended, they barely had any viewers left.
The storylines were so twisted, no one even knew what was
going on. Having Mischa as apart of the cast would just
bring back that feeling of Deja vu.

This is the dumbest idea I have ever heard. It is a great show... we dont need to ruin it by adding her to the mix! I might seriously consider not watching the show if she is on it! I know several people that would not watch it if she is on there. That is great she was on OC. Her days ended when she died on that tv show! Dont ruin gossip girl now!!

Blair: Fashion is the most powerful art there is. It's movement, design and architecture all in one. It shows the world who we are and who we'd like to be. Just like your scarf suggests that you'd like to sell used cars.
Dan: Vanessa gave me this scarf.
