What is Alexis Bledel up to ...

Question: What is Alexis Bledel up to these days?


Answer: Beats me, but had Gilmore Girls been back this season, she would've been (wait for it) spending time with ex-leading man Matt Czuchry! No lie. Czuchry recently confirmed to me that despite Rory and Logan's series-ending split, he quietly inked a new deal with the show last spring that — if Gilmore was renewed for an abbreviated, 13-episode eighth season — would've called for Logan to return. "Contractually, there was an agreement that I would come back for a certain amount of episodes," reveals the upcoming Friday Night Lights guest star, who insists TPTB didn't clue him in on why Logan would've returned. "I don't know [what would've happened], because those episodes were never written. There were a lot of hypotheticals about what those 13 episodes would be." At the very least, the return engagement probably would've given Rory-Logan a better send-off t read more

Gilmore Girl Moves to Another Small Town

Alexis Bledel

Alexis Bledel knows she can't shake her lovably sweet character Rory so soon after the series ending of long-running Gilmore Girls — and she's not trying to. But she is excited to try new roles, like the quiet, calm-talking Kate Peterson in her latest film I'm Reed Fish (in theaters now), where she faces marriage and romantic turmoil, far from the fast-paced "Yale Daily News" and the hustle and bustle of Luke's Diner. TVGuide.com caught up with the Stars Hollow favorite for her thoughts on Rory's final moments and moving on after Gilmore. TVGuide.com: How do you feel about Logan (Matt Czuchry) and Rory's breakup and how the series ended in general? read more

May 15, 2007: The Goodbye Girls

It’s really over. As hard as it is to write those words, I actually feel like I am able to let go. I had a lot of help, actually. It took a village. Every single person in the wonderfully quirky Stars Hollow made it easier to say goodbye to Rory as she left her tiny town for wide-open America. And it was bittersweet.Who else but Luke would gather everyone to plan a huge last-minute surprise party for Rory in the town square? And when the forecast (aka Babette’s swollen ankles) called for rain, he collected tarps and raincoats to sew together a tent. Sure enough, it was pouring on celebration day when Lorelai and Rory pulled up in their Jeep as all of Stars Hollow huddled beneath that tent. I loved that panning shot of the happy faces that we’ve gotten to know over the past seven years: Zack, Liz, Kirk, Lane, Michel, Lulu, Brian, Gypsy, Miss Patty, Babette, Morey, Taylor, Jackson, Sookie and a wide-grinning Luke all clapping and cheering for Rory. “I can’t be... read more

May 8: Diamonds, Diplomas and Decisions

I’m shocked. Totally and completely shocked. Not that Rory turned down Logan’s public marriage proposal. (You never want the answer to be, “Will you come talk to me, outside?”) No, I can’t believe she gave back the ring the same day she got her diploma. “I graduated today. It was supposed to be the happiest day of my life. Now when I look back on it, I’m just going to think about this horrible thing that happened,” she told Lorelai. So she couldn’t wait one day? Guess not. Maybe that’s because deep down she always knew she could never marry the guy. Did you see her face when Logan said goodbye and walked away for good? Lorelai looked more anguished during the proposal. Rory just didn’t seem all that devastated over such a “horrible thing.” Sorry, Rory and Logan fans. I know you’re upset, probably more so than Rory. I’m upset too — that we didn’t get to see the huge rock he probably gave her. Aren... read more

May 1, 2007: Girl Power

We have just witnessed the power that is Gilmore. Who else could turn a reckless, rakish, rebellious little rich boy into a responsible, polite, mature grown man? And who else could make a rough, hardened, jaded tough-guy tear up over a love song? Yep, those are our girls!So Logan is going to ask Rory to marry him! And he actually went to Lorelai’s house to ask her permission. Now, usually I would write this off as one of his typical smooth moves. But you know what? He had me at “I came here to see you, Lorelai.” This wasn’t just some old-fashioned formality. He really, really wanted her approval. And he thought he’d get it. After all, they’d just bonded over late-night pie and ice cream. She told him she believed he had cleaned up his act, that he didn’t need to convince her anymore. But there’s one teeny-tiny problem: Lorelai’s reaction. The last time we saw that devastated look was when she woke up next to Christopher, not Luke. (That... read more

Ferrera Not Forced into "Pants"

Despite reports that America Ferrera is being forced to reprise her role in “The Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants,” a producer of the sequel insists there’s nothing ugly about the negotiations. “The full truth of the story is that America was ambivalent at first,” says Alcon Entertainment producer Andrew Kosove. “But she’s very pleased with the screenplay and much more comfortable about her involvement now.” Shooting will begin June 2 in Greece for Ferrera and cast mates Amber Tamblyn, Alexis Bledel and Blake Lively, who play a group of girlfriends bonded by a special pair of jeans. If the film series follows that of the books, two additional sequels may be in store. But Kosove says, “At some point the actresses really will be too old to play these characters. I think honestly that was some of the ambivalence at this stage.” —reporting by Bekah Wright read more

April 24, 2007: Luke, Where's My Car?

Let’s get the worst part out of the way first: Rory didn’t get the fellowship. I’ll admit it, at first I was a little surprised, especially after Paris opened acceptance letter after acceptance letter. But sometimes the best opportunities don’t go to the best people, a lesson Rory has finally learned. Remember, this is the girl who breezed right into prestigious Chilton, was accepted to both Harvard and Yale, landed a top spot at the best college newspaper in the country and then became its editor-in-chief. These things don’t just happen to your typical journalist. At some point, that chance-of-a-lifetime will be given to someone else. But without the risk, there is no fellowship. So good for you, Ror, for going for your dream job. And don’t worry, we’ll be seeing your byline really soon.Now, what to make of Luke and Lorelai? At first I thought the car shopping would go smoothly. You know, an afternoon of witty repartee, lots of bonding over Hummer... read more

April 17, 2007: My Favorite Things

This was one of those episodes. You know, if you turned away for a just a minute to grab another Diet Coke, you missed Lorelai and Logan making nice. In the middle of the night. In her kitchen. Who’d have thought, right? Well, come to think of it, a lot of loose strings were nicely tied up in this ep. Here are a few of my faves:1. Luke and Lorelai make up. Sure they’ve run into each other tons of times and always do the awkward small talk. Lorelai’s answer to Luke’s “How are you?” is always “polite, succinct, fine.” But when Lorelai runs into Luke while stranded in the middle of Taylor’s dopey hay maze (symbolism alert!) they really did have the perfect conversation. First, Lor apologized for running off to be with Chris that night. (And yeah, why didn’t she do that sooner? Not cool.) Then Luke fessed up to using April as a way to push away Lorelai. (It took a custody battle and her cross-country move to figure that one out? Oh well,... read more
