    Default Mischa Barton passes on Gossip Girl, too big a movie stah for TV

    Some hot gossip: Mischa Barton won’t be joining the cast of CW’s Gossip Girl.


    TV Guide reported that Barton, 22, had been approached to play Georgina Sparks, an old friend of reformed party girl Serena van der Woodsen (Blake Lively).

    But her rep tells Usmagazine.com, “She will not be on the show. She was approached, but her reps passed.”

    Barton is now in Paris attending Fashion Week and promoting her upcoming drama Closing the Ring.

    The actress — who was charged with DUI and marijuana possession this past week from a December arrest — last appeared on the Fox hit The O.C. Her character was killed off in 2006.

    Despite rumors that she was ready to leave, she told Newsweek it was the producers’ decision to write her off the show.

    "But I really think it's best to do movies now," she said at the time.

    Tell Us: Should Mischa have taken the Gossip Girls gig?

    She's been replaced. Blake Lively is Mischa 2.0, but a better, more likeable actress and no DUIs.
    Good luck with that "Hollywood career". My guess is she'll be doing infomercials next year.

    Haha, another idiot who thinks she's too good for TV and now only wants to do movies when she should realize she's lucky to even get tv offers. She should talk to David Caruso.

    She's going to wish she had taken that role. I wish I could be a fly on the wall to witness the exact moment her ego deflates.

    Who is she again... I vaguely remember her (j/k as if we'd get the chance to forget her!)

    Mischa hasn't worked in 2 years and she's thumbing her nose at a role? Hawking Keds ain't gonna last forever, you'd think she might consider actually getting her face out there on something besides mugshots and worst-dressed lists.

    I'm glad she didn't take it, and I'm disappointed that Gossip Girl even offered it to her. She's an already bad, one-note actress. Add that to the fact that she thinks she's too good for tv so she puts zero effort into it and the result is disastrous.

    I think the OC will be her career high.

    She hasn't worked because she is a horrible actress. The last movie she did was Virgin Territory (The Decameron), a period piece with Hayden Christensen. It stunk so bad they didn't release it in the U.S., only in a couple countries in Europe. I remember stills from it a couple years ago and the only thing it had going for it was the medieval costumes, which were beautiful.

    She should really stick to modeling, which seems to be the only talent she has.
