  • Apparently it wasn't always sunny for one The O.C. star. Cam Gigandet, who played Kevin Volchok on the Fox teen drama, had some choice words for his former co-stars in a recent interview.
    Gigandet, who also starred in Twilight and Burlesque, was asked by Elle magazine if he ever stayed in touch with his co-workers from The O.C. His honest reply isn't open to interpretation.

    "No. Actually, Ben McKenzie was kind of mean to me," he said. "I hadn't done anything at the point and he was a little bit of an ass. But I love him. I think he's a great actor and I love Southland." McKenzie starred in the TNT cop drama for all five of its seasons.
    When asked about Mischa Barton, Gigandet was dismissive. "Mischa? I didn't really... was she there? I don't even have memories of her."

    It sounds like Gigandet's whole experience on the show was a drag. "I learned a lot," he said of being on the series. "But the things that I remember now—none of them are good. It was only the third or fourth season. Those kids were f---ing miserable. They were just—they would not remember their lines on purpose. They were young. That said, I don't talk to anyone I've ever worked with."
    Gigandet can next be seen in CBS' upcoming legal drama Reckless, which premieres Sunday at 9/8c.
