TV Line: Castle Scoop: Hilarie Burton Excited to Tackle a ‘Radically Different’ Kind of Role

Hilarie Burton is set to guest-star on Castle at midseason, and the actress tells me the gig has her excited for multiple reasons — one being that she is “definitely a fan” of ABC’s Monday-night cop drama.

Burton also points out that her Castle episode will play host to a One Tree Hill reunion of sorts, seeing as Tom Wright — who directed several episodes of the CW sudser — will be calling the shots as she plays Kay Cappuccio, a Kardashian-like reality star who is famous for… well, no discernible reason.

“He is one of my favorite One Tree Hill directors, so I’m really looking forward to working with him again,” Burton effuses. “And this time playing someone so radically different!”

E!: One Tree Hill Scoop: Hilarie Burton Reveals Why Her Character Won’t Be There in the Very End

 

 

We wish we could report that last night, Hilarie Burton told us at the Breaking Dawn premiere that she would be returning to One Tree Hill for the series finale, but alas, she still will be a no-show.

However, we do have the next best thing…

We asked Burton (who attended the premiere with beau Jeffrey Dean Morgan (Grey’s Anatomy, Supernatural, Weeds) where she thinks Peyton Scott would be now since driving off into the sunset with her hubby Lucas and their newborn baby.

“She’s probably super pregnant with four or five,” she tells us. “She’s having a Lucas Scott little, I’m sure!”

That’s an intense scenario, and Morgan definitely agreed. “She’s pregnant with four?” he asks his lady. “Or she’s already had three and is pregnant with the fourth?”

“I mean, maybe. They started really young. She’s southern,” Burton reasons. And now we have our answer to why Peyton isn’t coming back to Tree Hill with her man. She’s stuck in bed with quadruplets.

“Four at the same time is a lot. That’s like Octomom s–t,” Morgan laughs. “It’s gotta be big enough that she’s got to be laid up in bed,” Burton adds.

There you have it, OTH fans. Peyton is too pregnant to move, and that is why she won’t be back in Tree Hill anytime soon. Wah wahhh…
