OC Reunion Show

At Parc?

4/9/2007 8:27 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

The cast of "The OC" had a mini-reunion Saturday, with Adam Brody, Benjamin McKenzie and his on-screen, six-episode girlfriend Sadie aka Nikki Reed, all partying at Parc. While McKenzie was flying solo, Reed showed up with "Road Trip" star DJ Qualls, and Brody was spotted hanging out with singer Gavin DeGraw.

"Grindhouse" babe Rosario Dawson hit up Teddy's with one of the film's faux-trailer directors, Eli Roth, on Friday and while both saved a paparazzo from crashing into an R2-D2 mailbox, they remained quiet when asked about the rumored on-set romance between Robert Rodriguez and Rose McGowan.

Mr. Chow was also a hotspot over the weekend, with rehab graduates Brandon "Greasy Bear" Davis and Courtney Love stopping in (separately, relax!), along with visits from will.i.am and an autograph-gracious Anne Hathaway.

All this and more in today's OC-friendly Star Catcher.

Orange Crushed -- FOX Cancels "The OC"

1/3/2007 8:47 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF

Like you didn't see this one coming down the 405?

After killing off their most famous character, turning Summer into a hippie, and forcing Ryan to fight just about everybody who looked at him the wrong way, the folks behind "The OC" have finally thrown in the beach towel.

"This feels like the best time to bring the show to its close," said Josh Schwartz, the show's creator and executive producer. According to FOX, on February 22 the struggling series will ride off into the California sunset one last time.

"The OC" was an overnight sensation when it first debuted in 2003. But darker plotlines led to a departure from what the show did best -- lighthearted comedy mixed with teen angst -- culminating in the death of Mischa Barton's character last season, and now the death of the series.

Smells Like Teen Angst

8/1/2006 5:05 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Since her character was killed off on the season finale of "The O.C." you probably won't be seeing Mischa Barton on the show anymore -- unless it was all a dream or her evil twin surfaces -- but you can still smell like her.


The hit teen melodrama has spawned a fragrance line called, appropriately enough, The O.C. for Her and The O.C. for Him.

The O.C. for Her has a fruity, floral scent perfect for the sexy girl next door who enjoys drunken benders in Tijuana or shooting her boyfriend's brother in the back.

With its aroma of amber and musk, The O.C. for Him is the must have cologne for the sensitive hipster who fakes their way into Brown or burns down a model home.

Priced at under $25 each, fans won't need an "O.C." sized trust fund to get a whiff of Newport's in crowd.

Both scents hit stores in October.

How to Save 'The OC'

6/29/2006 4:06 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Mischa BartonWith word coming down that FOX cut the episode order for "The OC" from 22 to 16 (and cancellation now looming heavily), we here at TMZ got to wondering: Are things so desperate that it's time to try and bring back Mischa Barton? How would they even do such a thing?

Here are a few ideas:

It was all a ... well, you know

But whose dream is it? Ryan's? Marissa's? Sandy's? Nope. It would be Ryan's brother Trey's dream.

Let's just assume Trey was in a coma after Marissa shot him at the end of season two. While in the coma, he has this dream about what would happen after he wakes up. He creates all this heartache for Marissa and even has her end up with another bad boy (Volchok). The fact that the bad boy relationship leads to Marissa dying makes Trey realize things never would have worked between them.



Marissa was down with the Force


Think Obi-Wan Kenobi in the original "Star Wars" movies. Marissa comes back as a ghost that helps guide Ryan, Seth and Summer through their college experience. No one else can see her but them. She tries to keep her friends from making the same mistakes she did (too many to mention).

Twins

Julie was young when she had Marissa. She was terrified she couldn't raise a baby ... much less two! Yes, that's right -- Marissa has an identical twin sister that Julie and Jimmy gave up for adoption. After the passing of her eldest daughter, Julie seeks out the other daughter, Melissa, that she abandoned all those years ago.

Melissa is the anti-Marissa. She volunteers, works part-time jobs and is an art student on a full ride at ... The Rhode Island School of Design! Yes, the same school that Seth is going to! Seth and Melissa keep missing each other. They finally meet at a frat party and Seth is so drunk, that the next day he doesn't know if it was real or not.

Think "Bill and Ted" meets "The Terminator"

You wouldn't know it by looking at her, but Marissa is the key to all of human civilization. So when scientists from the future realize that Marissa dies, they send an emissary back in time to meet with Ryan. It is up to Ryan to prevent the series of events that lead to Marissa's death from ever happening.

She's not really dead

Yeah, we know -- it's the oldest trick in the book, but hear us out because it gets better. You see, Volchok was hired by someone to ruin Marissa's life. When Marissa seemed to be escaping Volchok's cruel hold, that someone ordered Volchok to kill her -- but not before slipping a substance into her body that would only make her seem dead.

When the opportunity strikes, that same person goes into the morgue and steals Marissa's body to revive her and keep her locked up as his personal slave. That someone? Oliver!

Go ahead FOX and borrow any of those ideas -- we won't even charge you!

Rachel Bilson

A TMZ Fan?

Rachel_Bilson_a_TMZ_Fan"Oh no... YOU guys!" said "The OC" star when TMZ ace cameraman Josh Levine caught up with her last night at a benefit for the LA Mission.

We were able to steal a moment from Miss Bilson were she touched on Father's Day, lamenting that she doesn't know what to get her dad, that her iPod is filled with Kelis (a guilty pleasure of hers) and that her cell ringtone is music from The Shins. Interestingly, in the middle of her interview Rachel stopped to check out boyfriend Adam Brody pose for photos on carpet, commenting "he's stealing my limelight!"

You'll be happy to know she did get a free TMZ t-shirt out of the deal.
