Stick it on a wall, aim and throw!
Mischa Barton has pervaded TV as the annoying Marissa Cooper
of The OC, a less scandalous version of 90210. Somehow, this 17-year-old
has garnered the attention of many media publications; she’s been labelled
Glamour Magazine’s “Next Big Thing” and made Entertainment
Weekly’s “It List.”
However, Barton has not impressed The Gazette with her less-than-mediocre
acting abilities and her anorexic-chic “style.”
When the season began, her dialogue contributions were thankfully kept to
a minimum. But with each passing week, Barton’s character has become
even more whiny as the rich girl who needs to seek attention from her parents
by taking drugs and dating the bad boy. As a result, it’s become more
and more apparent that Barton is seriously lacking in the acting department.
Whatever Mischa does in the future, we’ll always associate her with
that creepy, scary girl hiding beneath the tent in The Sixth Sense.
