"I gotta make sure YouTube comes down to tape this." —Michael Scott, The Office
Score another one for citizen journalism. YouTubers in the Carolinas caught One Tree Hill star Chad Michael Murray telling fans some shocking tidbits about his future on the CW's hit drama, including (gasp!), "I won't be back."
Other jaw-dropping statements from the footage included:
The CW has already picked up One Tree Hill for a seventh season, but which castmembers will return remains an open question. Does this mean Murray is definitely out as Lucas Scott? Sure seems like it, but we're working now to get you the official word from the network, studio and Murray's reps.
Meanwhile, what do you think of this video? Do you trust his off-the-cuff words to fans, or are you waiting for an official announcement? Do you think "they" shafted CMM? Will you watch without him? Post in the comments!
