    Come on, give Mischa a break. The girl's a good actress. I'd rather her than Michelle. I loved Mischa in 'The OC.' I think Mischa could be the next Julie Cooper if she wanted to be. Besides, she's a pretty girl, and that's because I've met her before at an "OC" event. She's really nice and everything. Don't just judge people by their looks. That's being really unfair.


    mischa is a bitch and i would probly never be able to watch the show again if she was georgie! ok michelle she is almost perfect. not the best choice but good enough.
    at least she has the skin for it. georgie is supposed to be
    really pale so mischa could sooooo n ot do it. i would be so
    pissed if mischa played it. and i looked at the stills of michelle as georgie and they
    made her up really well. she looks like georgie should. and she actually looks pretty too. so i'm soo excited. only
    3 more days!!!!!!


    She does come off as a B I T C H


    She looks too innecent and too unpretty to play Georgie.


    She rox


    She's perfect, she looks like an angel but she's the next


    she's not hott enough to do it. unless they seriously make her up.


    Nooo, Muscha was better for the cast, cause michelle don't
    have the face for GG she is to sweet and nice. ;ichelle no,
    Mischa have a bitch face, and Michelle is like "oh! i'm
    beautiful, i'm angel love u all" argr, and her acting is more
    for the nice little girl that loves everyone and have work a
    lot a school and have the better grades, NO to Michelle, NO to
    Michelle, YES to Mischa, YES to Mischa


    haha stupid mishca...better her than mishka
