'Gossip Girl' Spinoff So Totally California
No wonder Lily van der Woodsen-Bass was so messed up! Her mom was in a plane crash and her dad was always in New York hanging out with some high-class ladies.
The latest casting news for "Lily," the "Gossip Girl" spinoff formerly known as "How I Met Your Girlfriend's Mother," includes former "LOST"away Cynthia Watros (who played Libby) as Lily's mom and Brat Packer Andrew McCarthy, most recently part of the cast of the ever-on-the-bubble "Lipstick Jungle."
Watros and McCarthy join Brittany Snow as Lily and "Confessions of a Shopaholic"'s Krysten Ritter as the older sister she lives with in California in the tale of Serena's mom's supposedly wild-child adolescence. That's pretty true-to-life for a lot of Los Angeles teens. (Hello, Rumer Willis! Or better yet, Kelly Taylor!)
There are no new location updates but as long as we're geeking out about casting, "Veronica Mars" fans should be cheered by the addition of Ryan Hansen, who played the lovably degenerate Dick Casablancas, in a supporting role on "Lily." And there's just one more week till the new episode of "Gossip Girl"!
