Before One Tree Hill's Julian and Brooke walk down the aisle, the CW series will have an episode that star Austin Nichols says is inspired by the 2009 hit comedy The Hangover.

"The girls have a big bachelorette party and they all wake up and don't remember anything," Nichols tells "The whole episode is them the next day piecing it together, all the different locations and figuring out what they did."

Unfortunately for Julian, the ladies get to have all the fun.

"There was no bachelor party for Julian. I got to say it hurts my feeling a little bit," Nichols jokes.

As for the actor, he has an upcoming One Tree Hill episode to be excited about: his directorial debut. Nichols recently found out he'll be directing the eighteenth episode this season.

"When I get back from the new year I'll start prepping and then I'll shoot that in January," he says.

Nichols isn't the first One Tree Hill star to get behind the lens. Current star Sophia Bush has directed two episodes, and Bethany Joy Galeotti and James Lafferty have each directed three.
