Logan Huntzberger can still make Us swoon! Matt Czuchry may be a hotshot lawyer on The Good Wife, but long before taking cases as Cary Agos, Esquire, he was taking a Miss Rory Gilmore out on dates. The actor (to much of his fans’ excitement!) recalled his glorious Gilmore Girls days
But before reminiscing about Logan’s charm and oh, that devilish grin, Czuchry answered a question about his character’s epic proposal. Yes, THAT MOMENT.
Stars Hollow lovers were left shocked and heartbroken when Rory (Alexis Bledel) turned down Logan’s proposal in season 7, which turned out to be the show’s penultimate episode in 2007. But instead of sulking and grabbing pizza, Chinese food, and then some coffee (a la the Gilmore girls themselves), Czuchry admits he actually liked how Rory turned him down.
“I feel that the show is about two strong independent women, and that refusal captures the heart of the show. And I don’t think it was personal to Logan. I just think it was the right decision for Rory regardless of who her boyfriend was,” Czuchry, 37, said in the Q&A.
He added: “Even at the wrap party, there were talks that the show was gonna come back, and that I would have come back to have been a part of that. But nothing was ever set in stone.”
Indeed, but that wasn’t the worst of it. Gilmore Girls, which ran from 2000 to 2007, was suddenly canceled by The CW after season 7, leaving many questions up in the air. But even so, Czuchry is grateful for the time he did work with the cast — and writers. Rory and Lorelai Gilmore (Lauren Graham) had so much dialogue each episode, that scripts were much longer than the average TV series.
Sacrilegious, a new play written by Academy Award-winning screenwriter Tom Schulman (Dead Poets Society), will receive two industry readings in New York on May 7 and 8. Andy Sandberg (Application Pending) directs.
The reading’s cast features Tony nominee and Drama Desk winner Reed Birney (Casa Valentina), Alexis Bledel (Mad Men), Tony nominee Rob McClure (Honeymoon in Vegas), Kevin Pariseau (Legally Blonde), and Kenneth Tigar (Fish in the Dark).
In Sacrilegious, “Billionaire David Katz (Birney), once convicted of felonies for his financial misdeeds, donates twenty million dollars to his temple provided they name their school after him. Young, newly installed rabbi Mark Pickerman (McClure) strenuously objects and offers the congregation an alternative option. A struggle for the hearts and minds of the congregation — as well as those of Katz, Rabbi Pickman, and Katz’s beautiful daughter Elissa (Bledel) — ensues.”
Where Lauren Graham and Alexis Bledel lead, their former Gilmore Girls co-stars follow.
Organizers of the ATX Television Festival confirm to TVLine exclusively that 9 additional castmembers — including MVPs Jared Padalecki (Dean), Scott Patterson (Luke) and Kelly Bishop (Emily) — will join Graham, Bledel and series creator Amy Sherman-Palladino on the show’s reunion panel at the annual TV jamboree, which takes place June 4-7 in Austin, TX.
Also on board for the Gilmore event: Keiko Agena (Lane), Liza Weil (Paris), Liz Torres (Miss Patty), Sean Gunn (Kirk), Yanic Truesdale (Michel) and John Cabrera (Brian).
The exact date of the Gilmore event is TBD. For further details and ticket information, head over to ATX’s online headquarters.
