There’s a veritable Gilmore Girls pickle-fest coming up in the new series of Chosen. Milo Ventimiglia (Gilmore Girls’ Jess Mariano) stars as a lawyer tasked with becoming an assassin to protect his family. In season two, he’ll meet Chad Michael Murray (Gilmore’s Tristan DuGrey), a bartender who finds himself in the same predicament. Here’s a picture of them squabbling over a pistol.
As if they weren’t enough Gilmore eye candy, Brandon Routh (the naughty frat boy who lures schoolgirls away from Bangles concerts and one-time Superman) is also set to appear in series two.
If memory serves, Jess and Tristan never crossed paths, though they shared Dean as a nemesis. Most of the young guys did pretty well out of Gilmore Girls, didn’t they? Milo memorably went super in Heroes, Chad squeezed every last ounce of angst from One Tree Hill, Jared’s still fighting monsters in Supernatural, Adam Brody went to The O.C. and Matt Czuchry is still taking names in The Good Wife…
I would have liked to have seen Jess and Tristan face off. Of all of Rory’s other beaus, I think Tristan could have acquitted himself well against Jess – they were both bad boys. But would Tristan really have had a chance with Rory? Maybe in a different world, if he hadn’t been all Tristan-y.
Who was your favourite Gilmore Boy, be it main cast or teeny tiny cameo? Pick three: one to kiss, one to marry and one to push off a cliff. My three… Richard (man of experience), Digger (makes me laugh) and Dean (I’ll build my own car thankyouverymuch).
