Brian Austin Green, There Are Other Shows in This World for You Than <I>One Tree Hill</I> and <I>Smallville</I> When Brian Austin Green wisely backed out of a lucrative One Tree Hill guest stint because the internet made fun of it, I was so relieved. I know One Tree Hill has a devoted fanbase, but my god, that show is hilariously horrible, and BAG just proved himself as a very capable actor on Terminator (no really! He did!). He deserves better material than that. Which is why it struck me as odd that he just turned around and accepted a job on Smallville, a show that is not as bad as One Tree Hill, but still a show he shouldn't be doing. He's only signed up for two episodes so far, so it's not like he's on board for life, but I worry that he'll get suckered into more for the easy money, when he could be making just as easy money on a better show that won't be as damaging to his career. So, BAG, if you're reading this, here are some other shows you should send your resume to the minute you're done with those two Smallville eps.

Heroes
Admittedly not that much of a step up from Smallville, but Heroes is in need of better actors -- Cristine Rose and Jack Coleman can't do it all themselves. He could play the new hero whose super power is punching Peter and erasing the annoying from Parkman.

24
I love Freddie Prinze Jr. and I am all for his comeback, but c'mon -- an ex-Marine in charge of CTU's field ops? It's not exactly a perfect fit for Freddie, who I'd much rather see in lighter fare, while BAG kicked so much ass on Terminator -- on the same network -- and would be awesome at CTU. Not sure how this role slipped by him, but it's a crime.

Dollhouse
It'd probably be best to cast him as a new security guy than a doll -- maybe he's head of security at one of the other Dollhouses and he's been transferred over after the major breach that happened at the end of last season? Why am I talking so spoiler free? This aired months ago.

Fringe
David Silver and Pacey fighting mad scientists together? '90s party, come get it!

Burn Notice
I don't know if I've made this clear, but he's good at holding guns and kicking people. Plus, I heard he was really funny on Freddie, so he'd definitely be able to grasp the whimsical side of the show as Michael's new nemesis or something.

Chuck
Same reasons as Burn Notice, really. There are literally dozens of shows that are a better idea for him than Smallville. How did this happen?

Friday Night Lights
Meet the new assistant coach! He likes drinkin', fightin' and hanging out at The Landing Strip. Ew. But kind of awesome? Yes.

Supernatural
If he's so obsessed with the CW, why not pursue the best show on the network? He could play the new evil demon who hooks up with Sam now that Ruby's dead. Demon upgrade!

True Blood
I'm not sure I'd buy him as a scary vampire, but I do think he'd be good at playing one of the right wing vigilante types. Maybe he runs around Bon Temps perpetrating vampire hate crimes for a season before Eric bites his throat out while they're both shirtless? This post has taken a turn... let's get outta here.

Honorable mention goes to 90210 just because it's the most obvious thing in the world while still being a terrible idea.
