Scott Patterson Says a 'Gilmore Girls' Reunion Is (Maybe) in the Works

  • Moviefone
We're already impatient for the upcoming "Gilmore Girls" reunion slated for Atx Festival next month. But according to one of the series's stars, something else -- perhaps onscreen (?!) -- may be in the works, too.

Scott Patterson, who played curmudgeonly diner owner (and Lorelai's Otp) Luke Danes in the beloved WB/CW series, stopped by a recent episode of the Gilmore Guys podcast to chat about the show and dish out some scoop about a mysterious maybe-reunion that's currently being discussed with the cast. Though Patterson declined to provide any specifics, he told the hosts that hope for an onscreen revival of the seven season series may still be a possibility.

"I don't want to mislead the fans," Patterson told the podcasters. "I will say this, there are talks going on at the moment. I can't really go into any details, but there is some activity. I'm hopeful, and I'm in.

Jon Stewart: I was approached to host 'Meet the Press' but didn't take it seriously
Jon Stewart confirms he was approached to host "Meet the Press," but he didn't take NBC's offer seriously "My guess is they were casting as wide and as weird a net as they could,” Stewart tells Rolling Stone. "I'm sure part of them was thinking, 'Why don't we just make it a variety show?’” Stewart also says that he thinks Stephen Colbert might be even better when he takes over from Letterman. "Untethered from his character, I think he'll actually have more room and really be able to deliver in a way that's going to surprise people,” says Stewart.

Bunheads: Cast of Cancelled Series Dance Touching Farewell

Bunheads was cancelled long after the last episode of the ABC Family series was filmed so the cast and crew weren't able to give the show a proper series finale.

Series co-creator Amy Sherman-Palladino and some of the show's performers have now filmed a touching "last dance" to say thank you to the fans for all of their support.

The Bunheads video was directed by Sherman-Palladino and the dance was choreographed by Marguerite Derricks. It appropriately references back to memorable dances from the 18-episode series.

The piece stars Julia Goldani Telles (Sasha), Bailey Buntain (Ginny), and Jeanine Mason (Cozette), and also features Matisse Love, Ra’Jahnae “Rae Rae” Patterson, Colleen Craig, Maine Kawashima, Eli Gruska, Adam Bernstein, Edgar Khachaturov, Kara Hess, Micah Moch, Helen Pai, and Jackson Douglas.

Bunheads, Ep. 1.13, “I’ll be your Meyer Lansky”: Gold in them there hills

Bunheads

Season 1, Episode 13, “I’ll be Your Meyer Lansky”

Written by Beth Schrader

Directed by Jackson Douglas

Airs Mondays at 9 pm (Et) on ABC Family

“Every time we have a conversation I feel like I need more movie channels”. Bunheads is probably the only show on TV that could reference Diner in one scene and the totally forgettable film Mobsters in another.

Since Bunheads has returned from its holiday hiatus a couple weeks ago it’s really hit a stride, especially when it comes to the scenes between Michelle (Sutton Foster) and Fanny (Kelly Bishop). One of the best parts of the episode is Michelle and Fanny trying to figure out what to do with their land which leds to one of their ever comical meetings with their boring accountant. Michelle is hoping to find that their sprawling land has a little “gold in them there hills” but instead finds
