Question: Please! I am dying for more O.C. scoop!

Answer: Here are a few more nuggets from my conversation with Josh Schwartz: "The last day of Hanukkah this year lands on Christmas, so Chrismukkah actually takes place in the [real] world." In The O.C.'s world, Chrismukkah takes place in the 10th episode. Also, Schwartz talked up the new O.C. soundtrack, due in November. "It's got some great stuff, including a new, stripped-down version of "California" we had done by Phantom Planet. And the Imogen Heap song ["Hide and Seek"] will also be on there."
