Chris Eigeman Returns to Gilmore Girls

Share

A surprising piece of news today! Chris Eigeman has confirmed his return to Gilmore Girls! Chris played Jason Stiles (aka Digger), who began as Richard’s business partner before striking a short-lived romance with Lorelai. Probably the least favourite of all her past love interests. 

No word yet on why we are seeing Jason / Digger back, but my guess is that if there is any sort of memorial for Richard, even if it’s months past his death (as it is said to be), it would make sense for his character to pay his respects.

    Or he may be back to swoop in and take over Richard’s old company!

    I’m in the minority (again) but I liked Digger. He was the only one, other than Chris, who could keep up with Lorelai’s quips. Plus it was interesting to see her date someone from her parents’ world. That said, it does seem like they’re shoe-horning everyone into the revival.

      Hear hear. I liked Digger as well – best of Lorelai’s partners imo. And actor Chris Eigeman is great!

      And his exit was so undignified – he literally went off to the bathroom and was never seen again!

    Rogan – totally agree. Jason was funny and neurotic and totally kept up with Lorelai. They were good together for awhile. MY least favorite of Lorelai’s more serious boyfriends is Max. ;)

    I also liked Digger for Lorelai the most out of all the boyfriends. However, I do think that them being together (like Chris and Lorelai ending up together) was never endgame. Sometimes people need to be with a significant other who is opposite or different so that they complement each other – a yin-yang thing, so to speak. Digger-Lor and Chris-Lor are a lot alike; Lorelai seems to need the type of person who stabilizes her and calms her down. If anything, Luke (for all of his flaws) seems to do that.

    Lorelai and Digger were the Gilmore Girls equivalent to Carrie and Berger on SATC. Just no.

    @forg:

    You forgot Luke’s sister, she took a big part in season 4/5/6/7 and yet it looks like she got evicted just like Melissa.

    I liked his dog (“a little to the left” is and always will be the greatest trick ever performed by any dog anywhere), and I loved his quirks, and I think he was rather meanly dismissed… but no one compares to Luke.

    I just never had any interest in his character to be honest and yes he was definitely my least favourite out of all the guys Lorelai dated. It would make sense for him to be at a memorial for Richard I guess, but I’m hoping he’s just in it very briefly.

    Oh gosh yes! Can’t believe Marty…the cutest non-love interest ever isn’t coming back. I always thought he and Rory would find each other again after college and it would a perfect love….especially when Ed Herman as Richard met him once and pronounced, “I like that boy!”

    And no Liz? OMG, I loved her as she balanced Luke’s neurotic side with her quirky sister side. She’s a great actress too! She stole every scene she was in the way she would bounce in and bounce out! Oh well…
