Of all the weird and wonderful TV mash ups, this is one we never thought would happen.

Mischa Barton has been named to join the cast of The Hills: New Beginnings.

The actress is most well known for her role on the first three season of The OC as Marissa Cooper – you know, the TV show that spurred on the real life Laguna Beach reality show.

The show that gave stars Kristin Cavallari and Laurel Conrad their start…

MTV has confirmed that while LC will not be reprising her role in the reboot (after exiting the original series before the sixth and final season) a lot of the OG cast mates will make an appearance.


Brody Jenner, Spencer and Heidi Pratt, Audrina Partridge, Frankie Delgado, Jason Wahler Justing “Bobby” Brescia, Stephanie Pratt and Whitney Port are all signed on.

As are newcomers Kaitlynn Carter, Jennifer Delgado and Ashley Wahler.

Can it just be released already! The anticipation is killing us!
