Nip/Tuck Season 5 Spoilers!!! BIG SEASON 5 SPOILERS!!!

Source in-a-lather

"Season five picks up around six months after season four. Monday we start shooting...private rehearsal at 6:30 a.m. First scene up belongs to Sean and Christian. The first episode has so many guest stars it's insane. But not all of them are famous people. This year, I will be sprinkling in just really good actors (ala Mrs. Grubman and Escobar) so the show doesn't become The Love Boat."

"Also yesterday did a notes call for Episode Four of this year, which the network proclaimed the "most shocking" we've ever done. I was surprised at that. Nothing shocks me anymore, except bad manners. As for Kimber, she sinks to new lows, which is where I love her to be. There is nothing better than a Kimber/Christian scene in which he takes her to task for being a wanton woman."
~ Nip/Tuck creator, Ryan Murphy

"Here's the writing and directing order of the first eight:
ONE: written by Ryan Murphy, Directed by Charlie Haid.

TWO: written by Ryan Murphy, Directed by Charlie Haid.

THREE: Written by Lyn Greene and Richard Levine, Directed by Richard Levine.

FOUR: Written by Jennifer Salt, Directed
by Charlie Haid.

FIVE: Written and Directed by Sean Jablonski.

SIX: Written by Hank Chilton, Directed by Charlie Haid.

SEVEN: Written and Directed by Brad Falchuk.

EIGHT: Written by Lyn and Richard, Directed by Elodie Keene." ~ Nip/Tuck creator, Ryan Murphy

Season 5 Episode 2: Joyce and Sharon Monroe "HERE'S THE SCOOP: Joyce and Sharon Monroe are
competing Marilyn Monroe impersonators (in no way related) who work outside Grauman's Chinese and make their living getting tips by acting out famous Mailyn Monroe moments. When one gets plastic surgery to out Marilyn the other, it's war...with Sean and Christian sexily caught in the middle..." ~ Nip/Tuck creator, Ryan Murphy

Bradley Cooper
Monday 6~18~07:
"Bradley Cooper shot his first scene today, and the cast and crew and the boys loved him. He is very funny and charming, and a great addition. Even though he and Julian play arch enemies in the show, they had a ball together, with much great ad libbing, which I always loved." ~ Nip/Tuck creator, Ryan Murphy

"Nurse Linda, the beloved one, appears in Episode One. She just followed the gang to LA, to roll her eyes and judge their exploits. Julia (Joely) returns full force in Episode Two, and from then on."

"Christian's bedroom this year is equally stunning. I think I mentioned the outdoor stainless steel hot-tub, but I think I neglected to mention his bedcovering this year is...fur (yes, of course it's fake. But it does have a delicious sexual caveman sex vibe to it)." ~ Nip/Tuck creator, Ryan

"Just got back from a delightful dinner with Ms. Kelly Carlson, aka Miss Kimber. She is a delight, so nice and beautiful. I told her all about Kimber's shocking arc this year, and we had a ball planning it all out...down to the nail polish. During the dinner, I discovered we both are obsessed with the late, great Sharon Tate (actress and Manson victim), so you just know Kimber's
look this year will be influenced by Sharon. Check her out in "Valley of the Dolls." Taken too soon." ~ Nip/Tuck creator, Ryan Murphy

Sunday: 7~15~07 "All I will say about Ms. Kimber is that a) the baby is really Matt's and b) it's turning into the greatest bitch part EVER. Kelly and I both love it." ~ Nip/Tuck creator Ryan Murphy

Thursday: 7~19~07 Party At The Santa Monica Pier William Keck USAToday

Nip/Tuck's Kelly Carlson was there and said that next week she'll be shooting the new season's third episode, in which her character, Kimber, relocates to Los Angeles to join the docs. "There's kind of an emergency, and she and Matt are in big trouble," she teased. "It relates to a current epidemic in the United States right now."

Roma Maffia also relocates her character, lesbian nurse Liz, who will find a new hot lover to be played by a famous actress. "All I'm going to say is you're going to see some gams and some arm, baby," Maffia said with a laugh.

More Nip/Tuck Season 5 On-Set Goodies

Tuesday: 7~24~07[Arrrghhh!] i have an ever increasing love-hate feeling toward "mainstream" infotainment media i.e. E!News, and Access Hollywood. They usually have excellent video, but they do not make it easy to [you'll pardon the expression] access. i have the skills to decifer javascript, HTML, flash, etc. and I ALWAYS CREDIT MY SOURCES when availing myself to video, but the aforementioned gossip goliaths make it [no pun intended] virtually impossible to embed. To make matters more exasperating, when it becomes clear that embedding is not a possibility, the back-up strategy of giving a link to the page itself is frustrating at best and futile at worst, because the info on the page invariably is moved to a different URL, and often the search term that took you to the item(s) in question is invalidated as a result of the URL change. Anywho...E!News' The Vine had great N/T S5 on-set goodies. For what it's worth here's the URL E!News' The Vine Nip/Tuck Set Visit [please wait for E!'s sponsor's ad to run before the video loads]

In case that link has been
moved, here's the alternate route: E!News Home When you get there, in the search box on the top right of the screen enter Nip/Tuck it will direct you to another page. When you get there under the videos heading click on E!News' Nip/Tuck Set Visit. You will not be taken directly to the video, you have to again enter Nip/Tuck in The Vine search box. Then scroll
again to E!News' Nip/Tuck Set Visit.

sookie's spoiler alert

Wednesday 8~1~07:
"Answers to many questions:

1) The Villain. Yes, I said this. They are among my favorite to write. This year's villain is quite spectacular, and will first appear in episode three...and then in every episode on through
14. What she does is not to be believed. She will be the character you love to hate (shades of Ava...? And no, it's NOT Ava).

2) Sean will not be a baddie, nor will he change permanent places with Christian.

3) Just
finished the editing of the first episode, and really love it. Some times I don't map out the entire season, which is good, I think. It lets you write and explore characters you thought would only be in one episode if they pop (like Escobar and Bobolit and Mrs. Grubman, for example). This season is pretty much mapped entirely out, because of the complex villainy involved of several

Hope that answered your questions! Keep em coming..." Nip/Tuck creator ~ Ryan Murphy

"Scenes so far are said to be so explicit that even crew members used to the series' frequent sexual storylines have been shocked."

Saturday 9~8~07 "Met
today with the one and only...Phyllis Diller!
Ms.Phyllis Diller

If you remember, Phyllis was the first celebrity to openly speak of her plastic surgery. She is a spitfire and I loved her! So much energy and optimism. We are writing several episodes for her as Magda, a rich 90-year-old Bel-Air lady who loves sexy young men. She doesn't have plastic surgery on the show...she forces her men to (so they look virile and sexy for
her!)" ~ Ryan Murphy creator

Portia de Rossi

Nip/Tuck Television Critics Association Tour 2007

At FX’s TCA session, Murphy said, “I feel we did things that are now being copied elsewhere, which I take great pride in." With the drama about two randy plastic surgeons, Murphy said he has pushed boundaries and explored “things in our society that are a little bit taboo. We’ve always done that. We’ve always been upfront about it and we try not to be gratuitous about it.” “The show is still as sexy as it’s ever been,” he added.
~ Linda Moss -- Multichannel News

"I think we have to notch up our kink level a little bit" ~ Julian McMahon

"McMahon convinced the director to change a scene in which he was supposed to be doing push-ups in his underwear in his bathroom to exercising on the deck in the buff." ~ Maria Elena Fernandez L.A.TimesBlogs

"We wanted to explore the theme of L.A., which is people who come to this city as I did, come to sort of reinvent themselves and go after their dreams," creator Ryan Murphy said at the television critics press tour in Hollywood. The move from Miami will invigorate the series about plastic surgery and self-image. It will also change the balance of power between Dylan Walsh's Dr. Sean McNamara and Julian McMahon's Dr. Christian Troy, as they become small fish in a big pond. ~ Joel Brown MeeVee

Bradley Cooper and Oliver Platt as part of a "show-within-a-show" subplot that finds Christian and Sean being hired as medical consultants for a TV series about, what else, plastic surgeons.

Murphy describes the fictional "Hearts & Scalpels" as "the worst medical show that has ever been made. It is run by Oliver Platt, who plays me — in a weird way." Alias' Cooper plays the show's lead, "the world's biggest cad/plastic surgeon." (Sound familiar?) Murphy says the fictional show "is kind of like Nip/Tuck, and not. What happens is that it's so bad that they hire our guys to be the medical advisers, which is fun" and it allows Nip/Tuck to satirize itself. "The show has always been a satire, and I think moving it to L.A. [is] even more so."
~ TVGuide Editor's Blogs: Roush Dispatch

The lead characters' relationship is also being turned upside down. Sean, who has been in a mid-life crisis since adolescence, preceeded his partner west and is established and thriving. Christian, who is used to being the dominant personality in any setting, finds himself trying to start over in a challenging environment. "In Los Angeles, he's running against a bunch of people, who are doing things better than he does. They're just as charming and better looking." ~ Tom Jicha Sun-Sentinel TVPlus

"I don't think this show is kinky enough so, I'm kind of trying to push for that kind of stuff consistently. For example, I did this thing yesterday that was scripted to do in my bathing suit---pushups in the bathroom---and then I answer a phone call; I decided to do them on the deck naked. I just want to push things further. I feel like when we started on the show, we were pretty explicit and out there, and it maintained that to a certain extent, but now I feel like we have to reinvigorate that a little bit. I think that all the characters have always had a fighting spirit inside of them. There's some fantastic places that we go to eventually, and there's some things that Christian does that go way beyond anything he's done on the show so far." ~ Julian McMahon [Nip/Tuck's Doctor Christian Troy] on Season 5
