Gossip Girl - Q&A with Connor Paolo

Thanks to Ryan for the heads up.

Q&A with Connor Paolo, Gossip Girl's Eric Van Der Woodsen

What do you think Damien's ulterior motive is?
I'm sure Damien has some plans to take over the world but not that are explored in this series. Damien is clearly someone that knows how to read a situation, and then get himself on top of that situation. The Van Der Woodsens are very powerful, and they're a publicly very stupid family. They put themselves in situations that open them up to blackmail, and they do it over and over again. So I think Damien knows that and if he can get himself in that family, he knows it can really benefit him. I think he clearly has a thing for Serena so I think that's never far from his mind.

What do you think Serena is always changing her persona and getting into such chaotic situations?
I think whenever you try to make massive identity changes purely for the reason of "you think you're supposed to," not because they are genuine but because you're going, "I don't know, I have to change this up," or "This isn't working," and you do things the old you wouldn't do—just because the old you wouldn't do them—I don't know if it every really works for you.

You can't always be fighting your own impulses—rather than just openly fighting them—the answer is usually is to go back and try to understand why you have those impulses to begin with.

Serena's never really done that type of work, she should probably be in therapy right now or at least get a best friend who isn't maniacal. What she should have done, right at the outset when she came back, was really just gone ahead and say, "OK, everybody hates me, good. I'm going to get some real friends rather than these people."

I think it's pretty clear that she loves this. I think when people grow up in situations of consistent calamity, even if they don't enjoy it, they don't know how else to live so they seek it. They're pretty walking proof of that, whenever she has a good friend, she sabotages it because she's much more comfortable when things are messed up.

About The SpoilerTV Daily Newsreel

Every day 100's of items are submitted to us and we don't always have the time to make separate posts for the news and/or there is so much that it would quickly push all other items off the homepage.

So a result we've come up with the idea of the Newsreel, which will feature smaller shows and news items as they happen.

There will be a new Newsreel each day, and as news is added we will update the post and and push it back to the top of the site so that you can see that new items have been added. A tweet of the item will also be sent to our @SpoilerTV account.

New Items will be listed at the top of the article.

This will allow us to provide more news on more shows in a much more timely fashion
About Movie News Roundup

Rather that creating lots of new posts as new info is released and fragmenting the commentary, we thought it would be a good idea for the upcoming major movies to create a single post for each major movies that will collate all the info as it's posted.

New items will be added to the top of the list as well as the post being re-posted back to the top of the homepage when a new item is added. We will additionally send out a fresh tweet alerting you of the new information.

This will allow you to bookmark this page so that you can return to it whenever you like. It will also help consolidate all the discussion on this movie in a central place and make it less likely that you'll miss some key information.
