Gossip Girl Casting News & Notes

at . Comments

In Gossip Girl casting news, Wallace Shawn (the source of many funny Clueless and The Princess Bride quotes) is joining the show for a multi-episode arc.

The actor will reportedly play Cyrus, the father of Serena van der Woodsen's new boyfriend Aaron Rose (to be played by John Patrick Amedori).

If the series follows the Gossip Girl books, Cyrus will eventually marry theĀ  mother of Blair Waldorf, Eleanor. Could be interesting ...

That man is SO irritating. I despise him in Clueless. I really hope I'm right in assuming that he and Eleanor do not get together because the Eleanor in the show is too consumed with her business and her image and I just don't think she would give that actor as Cyrus a second glance. But...why would they need to even show Aaron's dad if he wasn't going to be majorly involved in the plot? Ugh, I hope he and stupid John Patrick Amedori only last momentarily.

Ohhh! I can't wait, man! I actually don't mind Cyrus in the books. I think he's funny. And Aaron is pretty cool as well. :3

Gossip Girl Quotes

Serena: It doesn't make sense!
Blair: Feelings never do. They get you all confused. Then they drive you around for hours before they drop you right back where you started.

We make our own fortunes, and call them fate. And what better excuse to choose a path than to insist it's our destiny? But at the end of the day, we all have to live with our choices ... no matter who's looking over our shoulder.
