Usually a 10-year anniversary calls for a reunion, but that's not the case for the rich kids of Newport Beach. It's been a decade since The O.C. and its ruthlessly indie soundtrack burst out from the zeitgeist's periphery, and the show's creator, Josh Schwartz, was hoping to get the cast together to, you know, commemorate its legacy. Mischa Barton, however, felt differently.
"I think things have to feel right, and it doesn't feel right," she told Us Weekly . Schwartz was keen to the idea, but wished for everyone to want to be on board. And understandably so. Without Marissa Cooper's now iconic "Hey" missing, it would feel wrong. Barton instead wants to focus on her own career, one that she believes was sacrificed for the greater good and success of The O.C. Oh well. There's always the 15-year reunion. Fingers crossed she'll be on board by then. (TV Guide)
