Gossip Girl > Ed Westwick Ready to Move on From Gossip Girl? > Comments Page 2
Well, I hope your original comments didn't mean that Ed had exhausted his acting talent and that he was unable to give us the Chuck that we used to enjoy so. Within the context of the above article, it kind of sounded as if you were suggesting that Ed couldn't muster up talent anymore, and couldn't work the recent parts as well as before. It's only in your subsequent comment, you address the fact that it's not his fault after all.
His recent attitude is pretty much in synch with that of other cast members. The show no longer provides the same satisfaction to both fans and actors alike. In the beginning, the guy was obviously enjoying himself, was proud of his work, as he never disappointed but rather surprised fans episode after episode. Even for small parts people used to say, "Chuck was great as usual." Never so much praise went to any other male actor on the show. He made the fans happy, as the show itself was pretty watchable back then. He obviously cannot be equally prou
90, I'm not confused: that's why I'm using the name "Chuck" when talking about Chuck, and not the name "Ed". I do think Ed has been phoning it in lately, though. Sure, he's talented, but lately he either has to play boring stuff or out of character nonsense, so I can't really blame him for phoning it in.
@90 - You are correct, I forgot about him having gotten that part. Do not get me wrong, I hope Ed goes far. I like what I have seen of him on GG, and I hope all of the cast finds work when they are done on the show. I merely question if Ed will be able to break out of Chuck. I hope you didn't take what I said wrong, I do not wish anything but good for the entire cast, its just that with anything there will be winners and losers - some of these actors will unfortunately not do much if anything after GG, that's just Hollywood.
That would be great!
Oh man.. without Chuck Bass? i mean i don't know what to say. i just hope Ed don't just leave GG.. He has been work for so long time filming GG.. just please don't give up.. is not worth it..
Didn't Ed recently land a role in the upcoming movie about Hoover? A role opposite of Clint Eastwood and Leonardo DeCaprio? Why he wouldn't get anymore work in Hollywood after that?
You're confusing the plots Ed was involved in with his acting ability. You're stuck on what impression the character (not Ed) made on the audience. This has nothing to do with his ability to act. My guess is that people who understand his talent also understand his frustration of seeing the character he plays used aimlessly, making it for uninspiring work ethic. And the TV viewers who have too much GG on their mind are equally frustrated with the lack of recent character development in Chuck, but can't separate TV from reality.
A lot of people still forget that this guy is evolving as a person. You may think that he has a great deal on GG, but you don't know what his dreams and aspirations are. It's quite obvious he desperately needs more inspiration in his career than he gets from the
I sort of see where he is coming from, but obviously GG is not stopping him from doing anything. Leighton, Blake, Penn, and Taylor have all done other projects during GG which the show accommodated. No offense Ed, but I don't see you getting work in American entertainment after GG.
Have you heard his normal voice? That doesn't go over well in America, so he'd have to use the Chuck voice, and will probably always be type cast as generic "Chuck" characters, using the "Chuck" voice. He wont work in Hollywood again, but could probably do some foreign stuff. Is that what he wants?
Chuck used to delight us because he was completely cynical. His ability to mastermind every situation wasn't used for any deeper purpose than his own amusement. As such, his character provided the perfect window on the spoiled, insulated teenage lives the show depicted. However, he truly cared about Nate and Blair.
Nowadays, Chuck is all about this boring "living up to my father's expectations", and every scheme has some trumped-up purpose that seems stupid to the viewer. In short, the old Chuck would be making cynical cracks about almost everything the new Chuck does. Old Chuck was much smarter and cooler. New Chuck is a dork who can't even figure out what he wants or how to get it. Old Chuck was bored with everything, but knew how to get anything.
Worst of all... Chuck and Blair. We always expected Chuck to be cruel to Blair, and to manipulate her emotionally, but we excused it on some level because he was damaged goods and his passion for her was obviously real and all-consu
Chuck Bass puts the hot pepper on the show!!! Really ... If he wants to move on then GG must be done!! :) kisses
What a cute tiny girl behind Ed in the picture!! LOL :D I wanna hug her!!
umm...no chuck bass = NO MORE GOSSIP GIRL
Just bought Tatler today. Will read!
no NJBC without Chuck!! no NJBC, no gossip girl! i tink wat he said ws just mis-interpreted!
Gossip Girl is just so boring this time...
I want CHAIR again!!! without them this show is boring(at least for me)..
There's no Gossip Girl without Chuck Bass.
Truth is this show should've been cancelled a long time ago. Everyone sees it, including the cast.
No wonder he feels this away about this struggling to survive show.
I agree with Ed too. The show is getting boring. I no longer feel the excitement in waiting for the new episode like I used to feel. And it's like the same old tricks that they are showing. And honestly, I only love Gossip Girl because of CHAIR and the fashion. If there's nothing exciting going on that is connected to CHAIR, I get bored. I agree with Madison, the storyline doesn't grab my attention anymore. Sorry but it is how I really feel. And Chuck is getting boring. It's like nothing interesting is happening with his life. No offense, I'd rather see his as a playboy but with a great storyline than him being better guy with a not so great storyline.
Or maybe the show has really forgotten that it was also the actors that made the show? When the show first started, its success depended on the actors as much as the actors depended on the show.
I'll have you know that many talentless TV actors have gotten major movie roles thrown at them because they were pretty or marketable. Just look at all the idiots cast in movie roles. Garbage in, garbage out. When it comes to Ed, however, you have no point. Ed was one of those rare exceptions. He was too good for a soap teen show in the first place. Here is a couple of baboon actors: those playing Lily and Rufus. And they are twice Ed's age. Go figure.
Hope Ed doesnt leave! I hope his contract lasts a while!! But i do miss old school reckless party boy Chuck.. :(
i feel this actors are really forgotten that GG made them. And just because you did a couple of movie dose not mean your going to get movies in the future. just look at all the past TV actors that thought they were too good for there shows. that right you don't see them.
The show wouldn't be the same without Chuck.
when such tremendous talent as ed gets no motivation from the idiot writers/producers, it goes to show they f-ed up big time. because ed (his performance, that is) never failed to deliver.
:( this mad me soo sadd!
chuck and blair make the show, and dair is so boring,
but i really want him to become very sucessful in his acting career, he is a very talented. i wish him all the best
i really hope ed doesnt leave because gossip girl wouldnt be gossip girl without chuck it just wouldnt be the same and if people are complaining about how boring gossip girl why are you still watching it then but from my opinion i never think gossip girl is boring because something always happens in every episode and ed pleaseeeeee dont leave !
