Drinking with The Stars: 'Melrose Place's' Colin Egglesfield
At my request, the lovely and talented "Melrose Place" actor met up with me at Brentwood's Bar Food just two short days before learning he'd be losing his spot on the show, and it's really too damn bad because the stuff that he spilled about what's coming up for his character Auggie (and Ashlee Simpson's character Violet) sounds very interesting.
In the clip below, we're talking about the recovering alcoholic falling off the wagon, we're reenacting an upcoming Simpson sex scene and we're discussing violence against women... purely consensual of course, you know "Melrose" is nothing if not twisted.
Yep, going there...
Does Colin's dismissal from "Melrose" not seem even more tragic now?
If the producers are going to so foolishly let him go, perhaps the powers-that-be on another series will snatch him up.
Just a few of the suggestions some of you guys have come up with?
Sanctuary? White Collar? Maybe the new intern on Bones? Rookie cop on
Cold Case? He'd be perfect as a Dollhouse Doll, but I don't think that
show will see a season three. *sniff*
Hey! How about making him the star of the show that *replaces* Melrose. -Sash
All My Children should snatch him up--ratings booster! Or some show like Ghost Whisperer should give him a multi-episode story arc. Either way, just put the man to work. -Bryan
I'd like to see Colin on The Vampire Diaries. Stephen could use a hot, sexy vampire ally. But I'd also love to see him on Grey's. -JettaJameson
I would love to see this guy be sara walkers new squeeze on brothers
and sisters or maybe he can swoop in and save Holly from financial
disaster-hot lawyer anyone??? -joey
How about a sci-fi series like "Stargate: Universe." Those get really loyal followings and fanbases and can guarantee work for years and years. -Jenna
Colin on 90210. He should date Kelly. -Pj
Colin should do GREEK! -Kelly McCloskey
I'd love to see Colin on One Tree Hill or in some huge movie that will
make Melrose regret firing him. I don't think I'm goind to watch MP
without Auggie and his hottness. -Corinna
Brilliant armchair casting, boys and girls.
