Bullshiz! American Skins Changes Maxxie Character Into Lesbian!

We knew they were going to eff this show up royally!

The American basterdization reimagining of UK smash series Skins hasn't even finished filming, and yet there's already some pretty HOrrific news regarding some changes made to the characters!

Almost all of the main characters from the first season of the series have been kept the same, with a few name changes (Sid is now Stanley, Anwar is now Abbud, Jal is now Korean and named Cho, and Cassie is Cadie).

Early casting sides also described the Maxxie character as an openly gay Latino boy, Teo.

However, we've gotten wind that somewhere down the line, Teo was changed into a LESBIAN cheerleader named Tea!

WTF?

And worse yet, according to a recent version of the pilot episode - which they're directly ripping off from the first one in the UK series - they haven't even bothered to redefine Maxxie's relationship with Chris and Anwar now that it's a lady.

Here's an excerpt:

INT. SPORTS HALL. MORNING

Cheerleaders are rehearsing a stupid, but intangibly arresting routine in an otherwise empty hall. Track down the line of loveliness. Somewhere a phone is ringing.

CHEERLEADERS: (CHANTING) Roundview… We love you!!! Aha! Ahu! Love you, Roundview!! Say what?!! Say Huh!!! Say what! Say huh!! Say who! Roundview…!

The camera comes to rest on TEA (17), an unusual looking but nevertheless beautiful girl.
The CHEERLEADERS spin out into immaculately coreographed individual spins and group turns. TEA presses a BLUETOOTH RECEIVER. Cheerleader continues around her.

TEA: Hey Tony…
TONY: [PHONE] Forget the big gay night out Tea. We need you.
TEA: Sorry Tony, I promised Chris and Abs I’d take them on a voyage of wonder and discovery…

Absolutely obnoxious.

Once again, we feel as though this is another case of the US unable to handle an honest depiction of a male gay teen character!

Lame!

What do U think?? Should Maxxie have been changed to a girl??

Yes! We have an even better feeling about this flick if THEY'VE agreed to come back!

The amazeballs UK teen drama Skins is being adapted for the big screen, and we heard rumblings that some familiar faces from past seasons may be returning!

We're absolutely THRILLED to now be hearing that actors Nicholas Hoult and Dev Patel will be reprising their roles as Tony and Anwar!

Yes! Yes! Yes!

A source confirms:

"Even though Dev and Nic have grown up, they'll have no trouble reprising their mischievous roles."

This is fantastic news! We wonder how many from each series will be in the film, though!

We NEED to find out what happened to Cassie and Sid! And what about our beloved Maxxie??!

What do U think?? Who do U want to see return for the big-screen version of Skins??

YES! Skins Film In The Works!

This is seriously exciting news!

Despite the US attempting to bastardize adapt the original, the BRILLIANT UK teen drama Skins is getting a full-length feature film, set for a summer 2011 release!

Steve Christian, one of the film's producers, said in a statement:

"The biggest critics of Skins are the Skins fans so it's going to be a big challenge. The programme has this incredible fanbase despite all the characters changing. Skins has grown in popularity with more than 1.5 million people tuning in to the start of the recent fourth series. Although its target audience is teenagers, it has become something of a guilty pleasure for curious viewers far older. Look, I'm a middled aged bloke with two kids, I should hate Skins but I absolutely love it. And then I talk to my mates, people not in the film industry, and it's the same thing - they watch it and they love it and it's all down to the quality of the production. Turning TV shows into films doesn't happen so much these days, probably because there's not the material out there. But what we don't want to do is to make a 90 minute episode of Skins. It would be a complete disaster."

The controversial series follows a different group of British teenagers every two seasons as they attempt to come into their own, juggle relationships, and experiment with drugs and sexuality! We personally think it's one of the most brutally honest and poignant depictions of adolescence that we've ever seen!

Christian confirms that staff writer Jack Thorne will be handling the screenplay, and Charles Martin will direct. We're also THRILLED to hear that some of the original characters will be back, on top of the just-wrapped second generation kids and brand new faces!

YES! YES! We love them all, but we hope they bring back Maxxie and our beloved Cassie! That girl brings the hot mess like NO OTHER! Well, except maybe Effy!

We hope that this, as well as the UK's fifth season, will rectify any damage that the most likely shiteous American version will do!

What do U think?? Who do U want to see return for the Skins movie??

Your First Look: Op's Rock Your Shine Campaign

op_group_e.jpg op_hammock_e.jpg op_shinegirls_e.jpg

As we mentioned yesterday, Op has recruited Glee's Cory Montieth and Dianna Agron as well as Gossip Girl's Jessica Szhor and singer Cassie to be featured in their newest Rock Your Shine campaign.

And even though the ads are debuting in magazines this May, we have your first look of the new ads featuring the Hollywood up and comers!

Also joining the Gossip-y and Glee-ful faces are 90210's Trevor Donovan and Twilight's Alex Meraz.

We like the eye candy, but why couldn't the boys model show off their bods in bathing suits like the ladies?

Just sayin'.

If you're diggin' the Op threads the Young Hollywood brood is wearing, you can get them exclusively at Walmart.
