RATE IT! Andrew McCarthy, Gossip Boy

Ouch! The survival of 'Lipstick Jungle' is not looking good...

Andrew McCarthy, former Brat Packer, and recent star of 'LJ', has been cast in the 'Gossip Girl' spin-off as Lily's father. With this role, McCarthy is shifting full circle. The GG spin-off is set in the 80's, the decade we were first introduced to McCarthy in movies such as 'Class' and 'Pretty in Pink'. 

I'm of two minds of this casting. It's terrific to have him on board for the spawn of GG, but I hate to see the demise of 'Lipstick Jungle.' Lindsay Price has also been lured away, having joined ABC's 'Witches of Eastwick' pilot. No official word on the fate of 'Lipstick Jungle' has been announced but it looks like the writing is already on the wall. (photo: Getty Images)

Oh Pretty in Pink. Classic. May have to watch that again this weekend. GG Spinoff makes me nervous and will probably make me feel very old.
