Casting Directors to James Lafferty: “We’re not seeing CW actors.”

Post One Tree Hill James Lafferty felt the stigma of playing a heart throb on a teen soap, "I’ll hear through my reps that a casting director said, ‘We’re not seeing CW actors.’ That’s just something that some people say. They’ll just stop you at the gate. On top of that, I 100 percent had a hard time getting back into competing for roles again and auditioning. I had gotten so comfortable in this bubble of One Tree Hill". Currently James Lafferty and Stephen Colletti are taking their pilot "Everyone Is Doing Great" on the road to festivals and raising money to film a full season. There were rumblings of a One Tree Hill movie for Lifetime, Lafferty claims "I don’t know the plausibility of that ever happening. I also don’t know if any of the cast would ever say no to it. It’s just nobody’s ever brought it up in a real, practical way". The One Tree cast has had moved onto other acting endeavors Hilarie Burton became a new mom, Sophia Bush was in the Incredibles 2 and Chad Micheal Murray and his nipples starred in the timeless classics A Cinderella Story, Freaky Friday and Scream Queens.
