Starpluse: New Cast Member Robert Buckley Gives Us His Two Cents About ‘One Tree Hill’

Posted by Amy with No Comments

One Tree Hill surprised fans everywhere with its 7th season return to the CW this September. Direct from the set in Wilmington, North Carolina, newcomer Robert Buckley is dishing the dirt on his character, Clay. The CW just announced it has picked up One Tree Hill for a full season.

Starpulse: So you have joined the cast of One Tree Hill after six seasons. What has it been like for a newbie on the set? Working with the cast?

Rob Buckley: I was pretty nervous joining a show with so much success after six years. I think I put enough pressure on myself. Luckily this is a group that get along really well and they put Shantel(who plays Quinn) and myself at ease right from day one which freed us up to have fun, so it’s been a great time. My only quasi gripe has been the humidity down here, which has nothing to do with One Tree Hill.

OTH films in Wilmington North Carolina and fans have always been reported to follow the cast and storm the set in the small southern town. What is their reaction to you and the new character?

They have been so sweet and supportive. I was surprised by their presence because I have never worked on a show where fans would literally hang around set for 12 hours just to get pictures or say hi!

You are playing Nathan Scott’s sports agent Clay, Now the last time I saw you, you were getting active at the Longines Center Court for Kids charity event in NYC playing tennis. Are you a sports fan in real life or did you have to study up for this one?

I am a real sports fan. I don’t know how much tennis you may have seen me playing, (chuckles) but I am nothing to write home about. Sports in general yes, I have always enjoyed watching sports so it wasn’t too much of a stretch for me. (With basketball) you sort of have to dive into that world. Some of the terminology I had to learn on the fly, especially with negotiating contracts but other than that I was ok.

So you could basically negotiate an NBA draft like a pro now? (Laughs)

Yeah I guess I could!

7.04 Believe Me I’m Lying Reaction

Wahhh…where did all that good OTH go last week?  I feel like we’re starting all over again.

  • Shantel I’m sure is a lovely individual.  I’ve heard a lot of good stuff on her from filming.  But Quinn?  I simply can not relate to, connect with or get excited about.  The only time I had a smidgeon of interest in what she had to say was at the end when Clay asked if she was sure she wanted to go to his place.
  • I enjoyed the Noisettes and the fashion show.  Really liked their music.
  • I liked what they did with Millie.  Great message to young (and old) women.
  • So Alex is going to screw up Julian and Brooke.  And as much as I love them, after tonight, I’m ready for some drama.
  • Poor Mouth.  When he walked out of the room, I just remember him with Jimmy at the river court and that’s all he ever wanted to do.  Hopefully he’ll get back on the air soon!
  • I actually liked Victoria’s return tonight.  She’s still snarky yet not awful to Brooke.
  • Clay.  I still love Clay.  I’m always interested in all his scenes.  It’s well delivered and feels authentic and I’m really interested to see where Clay goes.  Especially if it is home with Quinn.  Maybe that will finally help me with her.
  • Go Haley for knocking Renee out.  She deserved it.

Alright, that’s all I can squeeze out for tonight.

Thanks Kaitlin!

Clay: Okay even though it’s incredibly riveting watching you lift weights, I’m gonna go. What time are you going to the fashion show?
Nathan: I don’t know. You really want to go?
Clay: Do I want to go to a fashion show with tons of models walking around in dresses? Dude, I’m getting there early.

Kid on the Playground: My mom says they only put stuff in these magazines that’s true! Your dad is hosed!
Jamie: He is not!

Mouth’s Boss: Remember when I asked you if there was anything going on with Nathan Scott? (tosses the tabloid in front of Mouth)
Mouth: The National Informer? Are you serious? Uh-oh look, alien babies on the rise. Looks like they duped us on that one too!

Victoria: Oh, so you’re the has-been actress we’re overpaying?
Alex: Oh I’ve heard about you. You’re the mean bitch who used to be a big deal here, but you’re not here anymore, so now you’re just a mean bitch!

Nathan: Putting my son to work?
Brooke: Absolutely! Clothes Over Bros has a long history of child labor.

Jamie: Why is she lying?
Nathan: Because bad people forget the difference between right and wrong, and they like to take advantage of good people.

Julian: Vicki, Brooke didn’t tell me you were coming to the show.
Victoria: Think of me as Millie’s training wheels. And don’t ever call me Vicki.

Miranda: (to magazine interviewer) If you really want to get personal, we could talk about the time 3 years ago in the Hamptons when you got so drunk you soiled yourself. Talk about a messy situation.
Magazine Interviewer: That never happened.
Miranda: Oh, so then you must be a little more sympathetic to Haley’s situation seeing as her husband didn’t have an affair.

Victoria: Millie is not a model.
Alex: She’s gorgeous and has better legs than McKenna, unless you want to go out there with your walker.

Clay: I want you to practice two very important words: no comment.

Brooke: He just read some script she gave him. Julian is a good guy, Mother.
Victoria: Yeah, and I’m willing to bet she’s wrecked a few good guys.

Julian: Even with all the gorgeous models here tonight, the most beautiful woman here was backstage.
Brooke: Thank you.
Julian: I was talking about Victoria.

Rants & Reviews Interview: Mark Schwahn Talks Entrances & Exoduses on “One Tree Hill”

Posted by Amy with 9 Comments

When an established television series loses two popular (and central) original cast members, there’s bound to be some nervousness about moving forward with new blood. That said, any nervousness about the new season of the CW’s “One Tree Hill,” which returned a few weeks ago without departed stars Chad Michael Murray and Hilarie Burton, was quickly quelled after the first two episodes delivered solid ratings and, subsequently, a full season order from the CW. Jim Halterman talked with “OTH” series creator and executive producer Mark Schwahn about how time jumping brought longevity, how’s it good to be bad and writing shirtless scenes for the sexy group of men on the show.

Jim Halterman: Congratulations on the full-season pickup. Did you expect it so early?

Mark Schwahn: Thank you. I guess it was a surprise to get it that early but it wasn’t a surprise. We always plan on getting a full season and I thought we would this year too even with all the changes. I just felt like creatively we were all in such a good place. Obviously, the audience has only seen two episodes but our studio and our network had seen five or six episodes and I thought there was a real sense of enthusiasm from the powers that be. That being said, I think it’s probably the earliest we’ve ever heard about a full season and, being in Wilmington, NC, it was really nice to be able to give that gift to the crew and cast. Everyone is really excited about it especially in this economy and in Wilmington where there’s not a ton of films and television production right now so for the crew to have that gift well in advance of the holidays is really smart business on behalf of the network and studio.

JH: The four-year jump was definitely not something done on most shows. Was there a level of trepidation about whether the fans would follow?

MS: Obviously, you do something that the studio and network has no architecture for there is fear because it’s unknowable and there aren’t a lot of things they run into on a day-to-day basis that they haven’t done before. I can turn to Peter Roth, who has such a great career running a studio, and ask him what he did on the first “90210” or what did you do in this situation and almost 100 times out of 100 times he’ll tell me, “I’ll tell you, we did this or we did that.” But nobody had ever jumped a show like this so there was trepidation. I like to think arrogance can bite you in the ass and it usually does and I approached it with an open mind. I said my instincts are telling me this is the way to go but I can’t tell you if it will work. If my fan base is more interested in these high school or college stories or if they’ve matured to the point where if we lose some of our younger fans we’ll gain some older fans because the show is now relevant to them in a way that it never was. You look at a show like “Grey’s Anatomy” and you see the fan base for it and I thought if we get a trickle of fans from that show that now feel that this show is telling stories about people in their 20s as opposed to high school a few fans will help whoever we drop along the way.

JH: Taking nothing away from Chad Michael Murray and Hilarie Burton, has it been a blessing in disguise creatively this season?

MS: I would say yes and I would also say taking nothing of the success that we had with Chad, Hilarie and the original cast because we’ll always be indebted to them and that version of the show but, sure, creatively the writers are like painters and you’re basically giving them a new canvas and now you can work with different colors and do some different things that you like to do. Having the space to introduce new characters and having the story time to invest in their characters arcs, you have to clear some room somewhere to do that and I know there are people who watch the show for Lucas and Peyton and I was accused of loving that couple as much or more as anybody to a fault but I would say when you’re at episode 140 like we are and you’re looking for some adrenaline in your storytelling, to be able to say, “Here are some new characters, who are they, where are they going and how are they going to inhabit this world and be involved with the core characters,” it does sort of invigorate you a way in your storytelling.
