Question: Were you as psyched as I was to see Teddy Dunn on Grey's Anatomy Sunday night?
Answer: Not sure if psyched is the right word, but I was definitely surprised. I'll tell you who was doing cartwheels: the Grey's writing staff. "We were also excited to get Teddy Dunn to play Heath, our overly enthusiastic hockey player," blogged Gabrielle Stanton on greyswriters.com. "When he left after his audition, I turned to Peter Horton and said, 'Oh, my god. He plays Duncan Kane, Veronica's boyfriend on Veronica Mars. I love him!' Peter looked at me like I was nuts, but Harry and I watch that show religiously and thin
Grey's Anatomy The real test to determine whether an actor is doing an effective job is not just how well he or she acts in a scene but how he or she re-acts. We had some really great reacting tonight. An obvious example is Sandra Oh's facial expressions as Cristina was forced to be Bailey's baby-sitter. How hilarious was she while changing the baby's diaper? Then when she told the baby to "Shut it!", I had to TiVo back and watch it again. But back to the reacting. Patrick Dempsey's face said it all while Meredith was explaining to Derek the horrible thing she did to George. Meredith asked Derek to act like a friend, not as her ex, and you could tell he was struggling just by the expression on his face. I love th
Question: Please tell me that you have some Veronica Mars spoilers! I'm starting to go into withdrawal waiting for new episodes!
Answer: Assuming the scheduling can be worked out, Teddy Dunn will be back for one more episode later this season. But there's nothing definite yet.
Question: Any word on why Teddy Dunn left Veronica Mars? Did he want to leave or did they write him out of the show? Is this the last we've seen of Duncan?
Answer: In an interview I cribbed from my colleague, Ileane Rudolph, Rob Thomas said the Logan-Veronica-Duncan triangle had simply run its course. "Shows can start to become stale if they milk the same story line forever," he explained. "She's a high-school senior and I don’t expect her to get married next season. So, I think in an attempt to keep the show fresh, there is going to need to be other guys in her life." One glimmer of hope for Duncan fans: Teddy Dunn still has one episode left on his Season 2 contract; he signed on for 12 but only appeared in 11.
"I'm officially calling life unfair," teen sleuth Veronica Mars (Kristen Bell) moaned after her dad lost a tight race for sheriff this month. And has she even seen the ratings? Talk about unfair.
Ironically, the two shows having the best sophomore seasons air opposite each other: the popular Lost and the equally fine but underwatched Veronica Mars (Wednesdays at 9 pm/ET on UPN). As the show's tiny but rabid fan base will tell you, this one actually gives you answers to its mysteries.
Mars' payoffs come in many ways: in the clever blend of heart-stopping whodunit and heartfelt teen soap, in the witty dialogue for characters young and adult, and in the biting depiction of class and racial tensions among the haves and have-nots of N
