'The O.C.'s' Melinda Clarke will guest star on TNT's 'Dallas' in a classic role

The O.C.’s Melinda Clarke has signed on guest star in two episodes in the third season of TNT’s Dallas, The Wrap reports.

Clarke will assume the role of Tracy Lawton, a character who was introduced in the 12th season of the original series and was played by Beth Toussaint. In the original series, McKay was introduced in 1988 as a love interest for Bobby Ewing (Patrick Duffy), and it was later revealed that she was in fact the daughter of Ewing’s rival Carter McKay (George Kennedy).

Since leaving The O.C., Clarke has guest starred on The CW’s The Vampire Diaries, HBO’s Entourage, and was a series regular on the recently canceled Nikita, which ran on The CW for four seasons.

Clarke will make her debut in the September 3 episode of Dallas‘s third season, which resumes on August 18.

'Vampire Diaries' music supervisor: How 'The O.C.' started a trend that could save indie music

If you want to hear about the latest Katy Perry song or find out when Miley Cyrus’ sure-to-offend new album comes out, all you have to do is open the page of any magazine, check out the homepage of any (and every) blog, or just head on over to your favorite form of social media and see what’s buzzing. But how do you discover smaller indie bands anymore? If they’re not creating chaos at an awards show or topping the Billboard charts, it’s not always as obvious as music fans would like it to be. Enter Chris Mollere, music supervisor for hit shows The Vampire Diaries and Pretty Little Liars.

Mollere recently spoke to Rolling Stone about how he sees his job as an opportunity to feature great bands, both known and unknown, on a possibly unexpected (but rather large) platform — television — a trend that he credits to the 2003 hit show The O.C.

The O.C. was where music really jumped out at me on TV,” Mollere said. “Easy Rider was one of the first movies to have a song soundtrack, but The O.C. was the show that changed that format on television and showed that you could do things like have a song with lyrics play during a scene with dialogue. Before The O.C., that was not an accepted thing. The O.C. also broke bands like Death Cab and the Killers. A placement on that show took bands to another level.”
