BROTHER THE NEW "BACHELOR"? (updated
Online's "Watch With Kristin" has confirmed the rumor originally
printed in the National Enquirer - apparently Charlie O'Connell is currently
filming the new season of ABC's "The Bachelor" (Thanks to
Tracey for the heads up). Here is the scoop from Eonline.com:
Feb 12th, 2005
BACHELOR SCOOP: My sources tell me the next Bachelor has been chosen,
and the lucky guy is none other than Charlie O'Connell, the occasional
TV and film actor, whose brother is Jerry O'Connell, star of Crossing
Jordan and Rebecca Romijn's current squeeze. According to my sources,
Charlie shot scenes for the ABC reality series this week in Montauk,
New York, where his parents have a home. But is the 29-year-old ladies'
man ready to settle down? In my column that launches Saturday, I've
got details on that, plus, more juicy Bachelor and Bachelorette scoop,
including the lowdown on Meredith and Ian's breakup and why Jen might
not be in love. See you then!
Feb. 18, 2005
Bachelor Is a "Celebrity": Either Charlie O'Connell has
lost his mind and thinks he's the new Bachelor, or he has lost his
mind and is the new Bachelor. That's what I can tell you after a good
friend spotted the single guy in Montauk, New York being followed
by a camera crew over the weekend. Charlie--to refresh your memory--is
a TV and film actor (Cruel Intentions, Without a Trace) and also the
brother of Crossing Jordan star (and Rebecca Romijn squeeze) Jerry
O'Connell. When asked by my friend what he was doing, C.O'C. straight
out spilled it: "I'm the next Bachelor."
to the show confirm it's true, that Charlie is the next guy to choose
the one lucky woman out of 25, whom he'll ultimately drop like a hotcake
and embarrass in the national press. I'm told producers had been looking--for
months--for either a doctor or a "celebrity or someone with a
celebrity angle" under 30 to be the next big B and landed on
Charlie. ABC believes him to have just the right charisma to bring
the show back to its former Trista-like ratings of yesterseason. (Word
is he also can walk on water and make the blind see.)
But why Montauk?
Those in the know tell me Charlie's parents, Ma and Pa O'Connell,
have a home there, and that Charlie spends his summers there teaching
sailing to kids, mixing drinks at a local bar and dating the ladies.
So, is the
29-year-old Bachelor finally ready to settle down? Possibly, but someone
in Charlie's camp tells me he's more likely to be doing the show for
the fame. "He's just come out of a relationship, and I'm pretty
sure he's just doing this for the fun--and the press," she says.
I know. All the previous Bachelors seemed so genuine. Still, of course,
I'll be watching every single second. Charlie likes to party, my friends,
and this could be the best Bachelor yet.
Now, as coinky-dink
would have it, host Chris Harrison was also "on the East Coast"
Tuesday regarding the upcoming finale. I've said it before, and I'll
say it again--Chris is one of the most charming, witty and loved guys
in Hollywood, but all that ass-kissery got me precisely nowhere when
I asked about the Charlie rumor. "That would be interesting,
but I have no idea," he says. "Sorry!"
a good thing that guy is so entirely un-hateable.

far from a reputable news source (stories include "Ashley Olsen
Caught in Drug Scandal" and "Coma Patient Wakes Up After Boss
Orders Him Back To Work"), perhaps they are right about Charlie's

scene `Crossing'? O'Connell ready for some `Jordan' action
By Amy Amatangelo

are three questions Jerry O'Connell, who stars as Detective Woody
Hoyt on ``Crossing Jordan'' (tonight at 10 on WHDH, Ch. 7), always
gets when he runs into fans: ``Are you the fat kid from `Stand By
Me'?'' ``Why did you leave `Jerry Maguire'?'' And ``When are you going
to hook up with Jordan?''
Finally, in tonight's episode, Woody and Jordan (Jill Hennessy) will
get a little closer to the romance the show has been hinting at for
``I think I'm going to get me a little bit of Jordan,'' O'Connell
said during a recent telephone interview. ``I hope it happens this
season. I hope it does. I would personally like to film a sex scene
with Jill Hennessy. I have a girlfriend that I love very much, and
(Hennessy) has a husband that she loves very much, and it's sort of
like getting to do something without getting into trouble.''
But it's O'Connell's off-screen love life that is making the headlines
of celebrity gossip magazines. The actor has been dating actress Rebecca
``The tabloid attention is something new,'' he said. ``You know, I
just don't pay attention to it. You can't help but pick it up when
you're in your dentist office, but other than that I think it's best
not to really think or worry about that stuff because when you start
worrying about what other people say, you're doing something wrong.
I do want to say that I love Rebecca very much. She's a big part of
my life, and I can't get enough of her.''
O'Connell's transition from child actor to adult actor was fairly
``I think it had a lot to do with my parents. They never really took
that kid actor stuff serious. It was always an extracurricular activity.
When I went to go do `Stand by Me,' my father convinced me that the
movie was never going to be released and I shouldn't tell anybody
at school because the movie is probably never going to come out. I
think a lot of kids come out to L.A. right after high school, or some
of them don't even go to high school, and as silly as high school
and college seem, they give you more than just a book education, they
give you a general life education.''
During his freshman year at New York University's Tisch School of
the Arts, O'Connell watched the 1986 movie ``Stand By Me'' in one
``In the class, the professor was talking about the rain in a certain
scene and how it represents a rebirth, and I remember thinking it
just happened to rain that day we were shooting the scene. Rob Reiner
never uttered the words `rebirth' or `Christ figure' when we were
It was O'Connell's college buddy Damon Lindelof, then a writer on
``Crossing Jordan'' and now executive producer on ``Lost,'' who persuaded
him to come on the NBC drama in 2002.
``I came on for an episode in between doing a couple of movies. They've
always been trying to get me to sign on, and last year I signed on
for good. I mostly signed on for good because the roles I was being
offered in the movie world were kids' movies. After I did `Kangaroo
Jack,' I was getting a lot of offers for kids' movies, and I sat down
with my agents and said, `What is the most adult offer I have on the
table?' And they said, ` ``Crossing Jordan.'' It's the only one where
you'll get to wear a suit every day.' I genuinely like this job. I
really like Jill Hennessy. She's a terrific, terrific woman. She's
O'Connell's brother Charlie will guest star in an upcoming episode
as Woody's brother.
``He comes to town, and he's got a sort of checkered past. It's a
pretty cool episode. I got into a big fight scene with him. My parents
came to visit, and my mother said, `You guys are such good actors,
I would think you were really fighting.' ''
Next up for O'Connell are two independent movies: ``Man About Town''
with Ben Affleck and ``The Alibi.'' He also will continue to write
screenplays. Last year's ``First Daughter'' was based on a script
that he wrote. After filming a recent crossover episode with pal Josh
Duhamel on ``Las Vegas,'' he's thinking about writing a script for
both of them.
And he's slowly beginning to accept a certain baseball loss.
``I am originally from New York City. I just want to say for the record
that people from New York are coming to a) accept it and b) live with

Rebecca, meanwhile, thinks he is just as perfect. "When you meet
