Better Than It Sounds
Carina MacKenzie noted on Twitter earlier that folks who haven't before should watch the Hellcats pilot tonight when they replay it on the CW network. She said that Matt Barr would win people over and I must whole-heartedly concur. I was predisposed to dislike him because I remembered him so vividly from One Tree Hill where he played Peyton's stalker who pretended to be her brother and then held her and Brooke hostage in the basement of the never-locked Sawyer house on prom night and attempted to rape Peyton before her real brother busted in and rescued her. Obviously this was not an image that was going to be easy to erase.
But as Dan on Hellcats, he's the opposite of that. He's sweet and smart and funny and charming. He's also very tall and handsome and he and Ashley Tisdale's Savannah make about the cutest damn couple you've ever seen (unless you're watching The Vampire Diaries in which case they're the second cutest couple behind Matt and Caroline). So if you haven't watched it yet, please consider peeping Hellcats tonight. It's not the smartest or most interesting show in the world, but it's a bit of a diamond in the rough and Matt Barr and Ashley Tisdale are both so great in it, you will HAVE to love them.
