Chad Michael Murray's OK Not Being In New 'Gilmore Girls'
Anyone who's watched "Gilmore Girls: A Year in the Life" knows Chilton's bad boy Tristan makes an unexpected appearance at the school's alumni day thus freaking out Paris...
Except that it's not really Tristan, but rather "faux Tristan" as I'd like to call him.
YES, I'M SAYING THERE IS A SECOND TRISTAN ON THE GRASSY KNOLL OF STARS HOLLOW.
Before you start doubting whether or not the lunar landing was a hoax or that Richard Gilmore is actually still alive as an Elvis impersonator, let me clarify my conspiracy theory-like statement.
I call him "faux Tristan" because any Tristan not played by the Chad Michael Murray is not a real Tristan to me.
According to TV Line, Chad actually declined reprising his role in the revival, which explains why he was replaced by actor Anton Narinskiy.
In a recent interview with Entertainment Tonight, Chad revealed he actually hasn't seen "A Year in the Life,"
I haven't personally seen it, but I know everyone's really excited. I wish I could've been there but it's all good -- life is good. All my buddies got to go back.
Wow, Chad says it's "all good," but also mentions that all of his buddies got to take part in the fun... minus Chad.
I've never seen a man more conflicted in my entire life... Except for Tristan in this moment above.
Of course, Chad went on to gush about how he's expecting his second child (a girl),
It's a whole new ball game. So, I've got the guy figured out, you know, and we throw the ball around, and we wrestle, and he likes to beat up Daddy. Now it's the baby girl, and she's gonna have me wrapped around her finger, and I'm gonna be in big trouble and not know how to discipline or anything.
