David Sutcliffe Talks “Gilmore Girls” Movie Possibility

Following my own two-part interview with David Sutcliffe (Christopher Hayden on Gilmore Girls), We Love Soaps also had an interview series with him. The third part, in particular, is all about Gilmore Girls.

David talks about how it was to work through some of Christopher’s more difficult scenes as well as giving us some insight into who he thought the character to be.

WE LOVE SOAPS TV: In season seven of the show there was a climatic nonverbal scene between you and Scott Patterson. Christopher and Luke battled it in the Town Square in a very tragic, yet comedic scene. What was that like?

David Sutcliffe: It was fun. They wanted a real intense fight. They did cut it down much shorter than how it was originally written. It was quite a battle. It was like working on an action show. We had stunt coordinators in there, we were all padded up. Scott is a big strong guy, and an athlete. I’m a big strong guy, and an athlete, so we were having a ball with that. We wanted to get into it.

It was also interesting because Scott and I were friendly, but we knew what our roles were on the show. There was a subtle rivalry between us, not as people, but as our characters. The opportunity to play that out in the fight was satisfying for both of us. Ultimately it bonded us. I think Scott would say the same thing. I always say that fighting is intimacy. I’ve always said to women who ask me about wrestling that wrestling is intimacy. That is often the way men express their affection toward each other.

David also talks about any unfinished developments in Christopher’s character at the end of the series. And, of course, he addresses the question of a Gilmore Girls movie. Although he feels the question is up to Amy Sherman-Palladino, he’d be all in!

It would be fun. I love those girls, I love all the people on that show. When you’re in the middle of something, creating 22 episodes a year, and you are there 14-15 hours a day, it’s so difficult to have perspective on what it is you are accomplishing and how special it is. I remember to both Lauren and Alexis, “You’re going to someday look back on this and realize ‘holy shit, we really did something here.’ But it will take some time.” I think that feeling might be the thing that allows them the space to consider making a movie.

Gilmore Girls Trending on Twitter

As of right now, Gilmore Girls is trending on Twitter.

This means that, right now there are a TON of people searching the term “Gilmore Girls” on twitter – so many that Twitter has identified it as a hot topic. Pretty cool, no?

Digging back through the tweets, it’s not clear why the trend started happening, but it’s clear that people are THRILLED that it did. It started a lot of people talking about how much they love the show and how much they want a Gilmore Girls movie.

Spread the Gilmore Girls love! If a movie happens, it will be because of moments like these :)

Lauren Graham Says a “Gilmore Girls” Movie Could be “Wonderful”

Lauren Graham (Lorelai Gilmore on Gilmore Girls) was recently interviewed about the potential of a Gilmore Girls movie, doing a lot to keep our hope alive:

“There are always discussions – It’s something that I’ve always been open to. I think it’s something that if it’s done in the right way could be really wonderful. I email with Amy [Sherman-Palladino] and all the cast. I think it’s a conversation. It’s harder and harder to make a movie anymore, but I think there has been discussion about it.”

Which is great news for all of us Gilmore Girls fans! Let’s keep that discussion going!

Lauren also talks about what the show means to people:

“It’s something that I’m proud of, in terms of what it has meant to girls who are now grown up and have had a bonding experience over the show. I’m so into the thing that I’m doing in when I’m in it that I don’t think about what then happens. Only now do I get all those DVDs and all those reruns, and for me it was ‘Laverne & Shirley’. It might be a show that has a little resonance beyond the time that it was actually on. I just love those people.”

The rest of the interview is about Parenthood.

Matt Czuchry Talks “Gilmore Girls” Movie

Matt Czuchry (Logan Huntzberger on Gilmore Girls) is my Gilmore Girls star of the day, apparently. We top of the fantastic news day with this gem – Matt talking about the possibility of a Gilmore Girls movie!

Matt has no news about any Gilmore Girls movie, though fans do ask him often about it. He did happen to see Amy Sherman-Palladino and Dan Palladino on the street in New York recently, and though the topic did not come up, he ends with “fingers crossed, fingers crossed.”

And that’s what we shall do! Keep our fingers crossed, keep our eyes and ears open, and keep the spirit of Gilmore Girls alive!

Lauren Graham Says She’s Open to “Gilmore Girls” Movie

E! went behind the scenes of Lauren Graham (Lorelai Gilmore on Gilmore Girls)’s Parenthood. Lauren shared how she’d love to guest star on Glee and how she’d love Barack Obama to guest on Parenthood.

Back to our world, though, Lauren Graham shares that she’s always been open to a Gilmore Girls movie possibility. Sadly, Dax Shepard kind of interrupts here thoughts, joking about how much he loves the show.

Let’s Plan A Gilmore Girls New Years Eve

gilmore-girls-couple.jpgI hope everyone had a fantastic Christmas, if that’s what you celebrate. I took a little opportunity myself to take a few days off from the computer – but I’m back now! And I thought I’d drum up a little list in honour of the upcoming New Years celebrations!

We’ve seen the Gilmore girls party it up for Christmas, birthdays, and events of all sizes… so, I got to wondering…

What would a Gilmore Girls New Years Eve party look like? I thought of a few questions and ideas to start off the brainstorming…

  • Would they dress up fancy or have a costume party?
  • Sookie would cook, of course, and there would be LOTS of junk food
  • The party could be at Miss Patty’s or maybe outside in the Town Square
  • Hep Alien would play
  • Kirk would barge on stage to do some weird miming musical number
  • There would be games, like a festival! Or maybe Karaoke?
  • Maybe they could have an auction-the-kiss game for the midnight kiss
  • Would there be fireworks? Would Taylor allow it?
  • Who would be the bartender? Kirk?
  • Luke would have to open his Diner after the party because everyone would need a place to sober up and drink coffee

What are your ideas?? How would Lorelai & Rory put together a NYE party??

Scott Patterson Can See “Gilmore Girls” Movie Happening

In an interview recently, mostly talking about The Event, Scott Patterson (Luke Danes on Gilmore Girls) shared some great new Gilmore Girls moments – including his thoughts on a movie.


Were you ever worried that Gilmore Girls fans would have a problem seeing you as a character other than Luke Danes?
No, no. [Gilmore Girls fans] would watch me read the phone book in Japanese. They are extremely loyal and extremely intelligent. They were chomping at the bit to see the pilot, let me tell you.

Do you think there is an actual possibility that a Gilmore Girls movie could happen?
Sure, anything is possible. Why not? There is still a very hungry fan base out there. I don’t see why it couldn’t be put together.

How much do you hate talking about Gilmore Girls three years after it ended?
[Laughs] I don’t mind it.

Did you keep any of Luke’s gear? His flannels or hats?
Well, I have some flannels. I have some clothes. I actually had the original hat he wore in the pilot in a safe but about five years ago I was on vacation and somebody broke into the house and stole the safe.

That is tragic.
Yeah, but I have other Luke hats that I wore in the series.

Can we all shed a little tear for that lost Luke’s hat? Because that’s just tragic. And probably the person who stole it had NO idea what it was.
