Gossip Girl > Ed Westwick Ready to Move on From Gossip Girl? > Comments Page 3
They all are being misused by the writers. It's just not Ed. Tbc I have to eat
i really wouldn't mind as i aggree with ed, but if he just did a couple of cameos in it? like if he marries blair this season finale, next season could be a lot about blairs job and a few scenes of chuck?
I agree with Ed,
The show is getting boring. I feel that there is (and has to be a party) in every single episode in order to even have a storyline. I'm sick of it. Truthfully, I don't like watching Gossip Girl anymore. I just watch, faithfully, in hopes that it will get better. But it doesn't seem to be. I think that I'll probably leave the show sometime by the end of this new season. There's nothing about the storyline that grabs my attention anymore... That's sad to say.
This annoys me... I have a feeling these actors will regret wishing the end of the show that made them known ... after its over only a couple of them will still be out there making movies ( Leighton, Penn, Blake ). Oh well... see ya Ed. I'm liking Dair anyway!
reading this makes me wanna cry.
i love ed westwick as chuck bass he plays it soo well
First Taylor, then Ed...I mean, it IS telling. And I agree with everyone who said that seasons 1-2 were far better, because the writers weren't exhausted, they could come up with storylines for each characters (back in the golden days, even RUFUS had one...). And now? Characters only get some part when they are connected in one way or the other to Serena or Blair.
I wouldn't be surpirsed if Ed wanted (or would) leave, I'm actually more surprised that Chase is still around...I mean Nate can hardly be seen as a character anyomore...he's part of the set.
BTW, I really don't think that bringing back Chair would do any good...I think these two were the most boring when they were together. I am a Chair fan, but let's not get them together until the very end. Because they are utterly boring together (season 3, extremly low ratings and extremly boring eps...)
i hate how these actors only get famous from these shows, start making movies and all and then they want the show to end so that they can "concentrate on making movies" but don't do shit. perfect example, mischa barton! but it's okay, GG has to come to an end eventually :(
i miss season 1 chuck he was soooo sexy and mysterious and now i can predict his every move. BRING BACK SCARF WEARING, SKEAMING, SEASON 1 CHUCK!!!!!!!! and also bring back his and serenas good funny sibling bantering ways.
I can see where Ed Westwick is coming from. For real though, the show is not the same as it use to be way back in season 1. Season 2 was good, season 3 was ehh, and as of now season 4 was semi-okay in the beginning with the whole Paris thing, but then right after, it's now become "Wow...the writers are really REALLY running out of ideas." I miss the old connivingly suave Chuck Bass - and how long has it been when he use to say those infamous lines "I'm Chuck Bass," and where the hell is the friggin' the scarf he use to wear so confidently?! Now he's all corporate industries man, and though I can see that as being important to him with the whole connection to his father and all, does the show really need to focus so much on that??
Overall I feel the characters have started to become boring, bland, and so forced - it seems like in just a snap of a finger Blair suddenly wants to chill with Dan, whereas before she never even wanted to be near "Cabbage Patch Boy," and when did Rufus sud
I understand cuz in season 1 an 2 chuck fasinated me 2 but then he got alll grown up and buisness like in the middle of season 3...they need something crazy new 2 bring back our bad boy chuck...4 starters they need to bring back the scarf!!!!!!!!!! even in an interview ed says he loves the scarf... then they should put dair 2gether an get chuck totally jealous and have 2 bring back his devilish schemes 2 win blair back... like chuck said hes not chuck bass without blair... its sooooo truuuueeeeee thts y Ed cant pull anything else outa chuck cuz he dont have blair
I love how all of you are feeling sympathy towards Ed, but I do recall a false story going around say Penn was tried of the show everyone jumped at him saying he is worthless, selfish, and cocky when he is a "nobody"
I am pretty sure, Penn is the one landing more big roles when he isn't filming Gossip Girl.
And Ed losing his touch when Chair broke up, he even said in an interview that both characters are better apart.
It's understandable that Ed would want to expand his career. And I for one don't blame him with the way the writers are portraying his character. He's selling it, but how could he respect a character who now is resorting to ONLY sleeping with the enemy to get his company back? I feel like the Chuck a season ago would've gone to greater lengths. I cannot respect the character like I used to, and I'm sure that's the problem Ed is having.
I would be really sad to see this show end during the fourth season. With the stale story lines, it might not make it to 6 seasons, but I could see one more. But at this crossroads, the show needs new material and more dimensions to the characters. The actors have been playing these complex characters for 4 seasons now: it's not them, it's the writers.
But everyone, don't give up just yet! And yes, we need some more heat back to this show... which of course could only equal chuck and blair. Without them, the show is colorless.
Chuck and Blair make the show and it's been boring without the chemistry those two generate with each other. But Ed is so very talented. It's perfectly understandable that he's ready to move on. Hope he becomes hugely successful.
yeah, i kinda agree. it's sad to think that now, more than ever, the end of Gossip Girl is on the horizon. With Ed's dissatisfaction, Leighton's music/movie career, Blake's movie career and just general exhaustion of the same storylines (Dan/Nate and Serena, c'mon), I understand where Ed's coming from.
I can't imagine anything new coming from Chuck in the near future, especially without Blair, who, I think, brings something new to him. That's lost now.
I just hope they don't bring in new people to run it to the ground, a la One Tree Hill.
I blame the break up of chair for ed saying this. whenever they are not together everything in their lives goes terribly wrong! they are better together than apart regardless of why the writers split them up AGAIN.
WE NEED OUR CHAIR BACK TOGETHER ASAP!!!
revive all our fave characters.
ed PLEASE dont leave GG would not survive without you!
and neither would chair!
I understand why the actors are ready to move on. I LOVE GG and really only watch for Chuck and Blair. I will be sad to see GG end, but will all of the main actors blowing up, I fear it will not last much longer. I don't think the show will last very long if Ed were to leave. Hopefully the writers at least give the fans what they want in the end and step up and give the show a closing it deserves.
Love to see how everyone is waiting for Chuck and Blair to reunite; I have nothing more to add. Let’s wait and watch together until they’ll get back together, and indeed, there’s been a little sparkle this episode :) Even though it was only 5 seconds, it was the best part of this episode. I believe that Chuck and Blair will hook up again (maybe we have to wait until the end of this season), and I would be very sad if GG ends pretty soon (losing C or B would actually end the show). But even I think they can come up with a better storyline right now; I’m pretty bored.
i really don't blame him for saying that. what sane person could be satisfied with the turn of the show and the one-dimensional non existent "growing" of their characters? i also get the fact that he wants to do different roles, but seriously i majorly blame the absolutely shitty, non-consistent writing that made this show into a shallow stupid-comic-relief version of the bold and the beautiful.
have you seen 4x13? i could fall asleep just thinking about it and i don't even want to waste a thought on explaining WHY i so much disliked it. one hint: making dair a major plotline and serena fall for the next guy really makes me yawn. NOT ENOUGH WRITERS, JUST NOT ENOUGH!
My interest in the show would disappear if he did. I'm always eagerly awaiting a Bassdorf reunion....that's when Chuck is at his best.
I definitely sympathize with Ed in this case. First, it's the same thing all the other GG actors have been talking about: it's routine now and they want to try new roles, simple as that. Second, Chuck in particular keeps getting stuck in the same emotional torture story season after season - and every time he gets to grow a little, the writers drag him right back. For Ed as an actor, that must be frustrating as heck.
But overall, i don't think this is any more surprising that Penn saying he wanted to really act in something other than GG or Leighton saying she'd be done when her contract ended. Even the show runners have explicitly said they don't want the show to go on too long. It's just obvious that EVERYONE is ready to move on.
I feel exactly like you ED! I loved Gossip Girl so much I use to dream about the show.
Yesterday's RECORD LOW RATINGS are indicative of the general aura of the show lately. Repetetive story lines, lack of CB, lack of Derena, the shows largest audience bases and an unorthodox pairing with Dair were suicidal moves. I wasn't a clairvoyant when I called it and said Dair will be the end of GG.
Of course he's ready for something else. Why wouldn't he be? I think most of the GG cast are in the same mood these days. They're young, up-and-coming actors and it's time they try something else.
you go ed.
chuck has lost something, and it happened right around the time that he and blair broke up. not sure how they can ever bring him back now, im a huge chuck/chair fan but im not even really bothered anymore
ed needs to slow his role,he is on one of the hottest shows ever and there is so much more to his character to be explored
I agree that Chuck has been misused, abused, and confused. Nevertheless, Ed has been phoning it in lately and it shows.
