â€œMelrose Placeâ€ is about to get a makeover â€“ again.
The CW reboot, which is rating worse than a prime-time Jay Leno variety show, is seemingly trying everything it can to keep itself on air. The showrunners have convinced Heather Locklear â€“ who single-handedly saved the original â€œMelroseâ€ from an early demise â€“ to reprise her as Amanda Woodward for what, I presume, will be an extended stay (Very, Very Special Guest Star?), and now theyâ€™re ditching two regulars in favour of some fresh faces.
Mercifully, the show is getting rid of the talentless Ashlee Simpson-Wentz, whoâ€™s Violet (supposedly Sydneyâ€™s daughter). Attacked for her acting since the pilot, fans will be dancing in the streets upon hearing the news of Violet catching an Amtrak.
Also gone is the slightly-better Colin Egglesfield, whose Augie has been pink-slipped too.
Theyâ€™re about to wrap up the â€˜Who Killed Sydney Andrews Storylineâ€™ so I can only assume one of these two has something to do with the murder – – and the other, maybe they get knocked off too?
Executive Producer Todd Slavkin tells Michael Ausiello, â€˜â€™â€¦. we always knew that this murder mystery would end in episode 12. And we always knew that [Ashlee’s] character of Violet would be instrumental in that as a suspect, and [Colin’s character of] Augie as well. And once that murder mystery was solved, she would go on her way. That was the original plan going into the development of the show.â€™â€™
Once the murder mystery is solved, the show will transform into â€˜â€™a much more fun, romantic, sexy upbeat kind of showâ€™â€™ and â€˜â€™now that the characters are no longer suspects, they can have a great time, they can focus on their careers, they can get into bed with each other without having this ominous cloud hanging over the buildingâ€¦ But this is still Melrose Place. Thereâ€™s still going to be intrigue on the show.â€™â€™
In addition to adding a new love interest character for Amanda, a billionaire, to be played by â€˜Rocketeerâ€™ Billy Campbell, thereâ€™s â€˜â€™a doctor, a new resident at the hospital who is irreverent and funny and will mix it up and move into the building. He will be a roommate of one of the characters and interact with Lauren. Heâ€™s a guy that, even though heâ€™s a doctor, he doesnâ€™t take life very seriously. Medicine can be very fun as well as serious to him and he ends up lightening up Lauren. We think this guyâ€™s a lot of fun and is going to mix it up in a great way with the rest of the cast.â€™â€™
