Tree Hill was home to many interesting, awesome, and insane characters. We can’t rank everyone (because who wants to remember people like Felix or Anna) and we all know the crazy chicks like Nanny Carrie and Katie belong in jail, not on this list. Here’s to the main/big supporting characters that made One Tree Hill a show we never wanted to stop watching.
20. Victoria Davis
So about 90% of the time Bitchtoria sucked, but she did redeem herself in those later seasons by being there for Brooke. She may have been a bitch, but she was our favorite bitch.
19. Deb Scott
Deb was kind of a hot mess, but then again who wouldn't be after being married to Dan Scott? Her drug and alcohol problems taken care of, she still wasn't the best mom (who dates their kids friends?!) but she did save Jamie and Haley, and thank God for that.
18. Quentin Fields
Q started out as an asshole (sound familiar?) but turned into a big softie, who helped Nathan with his basketball comeback and was an adorable older best friend to Jamie. We all sobbed pretty hard when we lost him.
17. Jake Jagielski
Poor Jake. He could have treated Peyton well, but we all know that Leyton was the OTP. He really was a great guy, plus he was super hot and a really sweet single father. We still feel for him.
16. Clay Evans
Clay was OTH attempt at replacing Lucas. It didn't really work, but he was an okay guy. He helped Nathan, which is why he makes this list. He also had an insane amount of drama that kept things interesting, I.E. a stalker who looks like his dead wife shooting him and Quinn. Oh. and the time he forgot he had a kid.
15. Quinn James
And then there was Quinn, sent to replace Peyton. She didn't. She was another one of Haley's siblings (how many did she have?!) but not the slutty one, Taylor we're looking at you. Quinn was goofy and while she didn't make up for Peyton leaving, she was actually a very sweet character and made us laugh.
14. Antwon "Skills" Taylor
Skills was Naley's biggest fan (after us). While he didn't always make good choices for himself (See: His relationship with Deb) he was always a good friend, there to lend advice when one of the Scott boys was being stupid or when one of the many women of Tree Hill needed help. Remember when he was the Baby Proofer?
13. Millicent Huxtable
Millie as Brooke's assistant/employee = an incredible person who was always there for Brooke. Millie the model = awful and we should all forget her cocaine phase. Thank god Mouth and her got back together and she became normal again.
12. Whitey Durham
Do coaches like Whitey exist in real life? He really cared about Lucas and Nathan, hated Dan like we all did, and taught everyone some valuable life lessons, while being hilarious and as adorable as a tough basketball coach can be.
11. Marvin "Mouth" McFadden
Mouth might not have been the best dancer, but he was a great friend to Lucas Scott and the other guys of the River Court. But it's his friendship with Brooke over the years that made us truly love him.
10. Jamie Scott
Jamie circa season 5 is the cutest thing ever. He got to be buddies with everyone: his dad, his uncle Luke, his uncle Skills, his godmomma Brooke, Q...basically you were only cool on this show if Jamie liked you. Which is probably why we started to really like Dan Scott, since Jamie loved him so much.
9. Dan Scott
Dan was the greatest antagonist this show ever saw, and there were a ton of crazy people (Psycho Derek and Xavier, to name a few). You loved to hate him. He was a terrible father, a murderer, a corrupt politician/businessman, and all around kind of insane. But at the end of the day, he was Dan Scott and no one was better than Dan Scott...
8. Keith Scott
...except for Keith Scott, his big brother. AKA Lucas' surrogate father. Since, you know, Dan ditched Karen after he got her pregnant, went and got Deb pregnant and then married her. Keith kept it classy, which had to be hard with Dan as your brother, and took care of Lucas and Karen. We're STILL not over his death. When he came back in season 9, we wept.
7. Karen Roe
Karen was by far the most responsible parent to the teenagers of Tree Hill. She showed Dan Scott she didn't need a man for her life to turn out great and she definitely got the easier Scott boy because of it. Karen always gave advice that we could actually use in our own lives.
6. Julian Baker
Any guy that can take care of Brooke Davis and love her unconditionally deserves to be in the Top 10. Julian might have come into OTH with not-so-wonderful intentions, but he proved that he was the perfect man for Brooke and we've been in love with him ever since.
5. Peyton Sawyer
Peyton was probably the angstiest cheerleader to ever exist and that's what we loved about her. She was broody (for good reasons) and dark at times, but way deep down, she never gave up on love. She got her man in the end (becoming Peyton Scott!).
4. Haley James Scott
Haley has always been one of the best characters (season 2 Haley aside) to ever grace our screens. She made Nathan the man he is today. She was a great momma. She always stuck up for her friends and didn't care what people thought of her, I mean she wore that poncho all the time in high school.
3. Nathan Scott
Nathan proved that jock-assholes can become loving husbands and amazing fathers. Also, Nathan kind of became the dorky guy who thinks Shrek is a good movie to have a favorite quote from.
2. Lucas Scott
Now, we're still very mad at Lucas for leaving, and he almost came after Nathan, but let's be honest. Without Lucas Scott, there would be no One Tree Hill. Even after he left, he still was mentioned in almost every episode. Talk about never getting over a guy.
1. Brooke Davis
Broke is the ultimate OTH character. She changed from party-girl cheerleader to power-house Brooke, running (then losing, then gaining back, then losing again) her own company flawlessly while handling jerk boyfriends, crazy parents, and falling in love with an amazing man. Brooke is the girl we always wanted to become. Thanks for the memories B. Davis!
Logan, because he stole the show in season 9 with his cuteness.
Sam Walker, because that poor girl was all kind of messed up and Brooke still took he under her wing and made us care about her. But then, she went and left. Can we quote Peyton and say People Always Leave.
Chris Keller because even though he attempted to break up Naley, he kept us entertained. Who didn't love it when he came back in season 4 and called Haley "plump", only to have her say she's pregnant and he's an asshole. Classic Chris Keller.

Crooner Michael Bolton formed an unlikely duo with Goodfellas star Paul Sorvino in the early hours of Tuesday (16Dec14) after teaming up to serenade guests at a premiere afterparty for Tim Burton's new film, Big Eyes. The stars were among the attendees at the Kappo Masa restaurant event in New York, where they joined the movie's star Amy Adams and fellow guests Jason Schwartzman, Patrick Stewart, Harvey Keitel, Krysten Ritter, Brooke Shields and Rufus Wainwright to celebrate the picture's release on Monday night (15Dec14).
The party continued past midnight, when Bolton and Sorvino began "comparing their singing pipes", before Adams suggested they team up to perform a duet as a little festive treat.
They took her advice and began belting out Christmas carols for the party, including renditions of O Holy Night and Have Yourself a Merry Little Christmas.
Broadway star Jessie Mueller also joined in the with Bolton and Sorvino to perform Silent Night, according to the New York Post.
Michael Palin paid a touching tribute to his Monty Python co-star Graham Chapman on Wednesday (10Dec14) as he unveiled a special plaque at the late actor's childhood home. Chapman, who starred in hit comedy films Monty Python and the Holy Grail and Life of Brian, lost his battle with cancer in 1989, at the age of 48.
City council officials in his native Leicestershire, England recently decided to honour his roots and invited Palin to attend the unveiling ceremony for the green plaque, which recognises local people and places of importance.
The tribute was placed at Chapman's former family home on Burton Road in the town of Melton Mowbray.
Presenting the accolade, Palin said, "I can almost feel him tittering slightly at all this - but I think he would have been honestly quite chuffed (flattered), quietly.
"He was that mixture, like all of us, of not taking things seriously but at the same time taking things quite seriously."
The news comes two years after Palin and fellow Python Terry Jones joined forces at Chapman's favourite London pub in Highgate to unveil a similar blue plaque in his memory.
The British Comedy Society honour, which references his role in Life of Brian, remembers Chapman as "a very naughty boy" who "drank here often and copiously".
Frost/Nixon star Michael Sheen will celebrate poet Dylan Thomas’ centennial by starring in a reading of the literary icon's Under Milk Wood on the same stage where the "play for voices" premiered in 1953. Sheen will also direct the performance at New York’s 92nd Street Y on 26 October (14).
The reading will be broadcast live simultaneously on the venue's website and on bbc.co.uk/radiowales in Britain.
Thomas made his American debut at the 92nd Street Y’s Poetry Center in 1950, and he premiered Under Milk Wood on its stage on 14 May, 1953. There is only one recording of that performance with Thomas himself in the cast.
Welshman Sheen cannot wait to perform the piece by his fellow countryman, stating, "It's a real honour and an absolute thrill to be able to perform Under Milk Wood in this very special year and on the stage that it first found its voice. And the live radio broadcast is an opportunity to celebrate him and his work in both New York - a city that became so important to Dylan - and, at the same time, in Wales, his inspiration and home."
The all-Welsh cast also features actress Kate Burton, whose parents, Sybil Williams and Richard Burton, participated in the first BBC radio recording of Under Milk Wood in 1954. Burton also starred in the 1972 film adaptation of Under Milk Wood.
She says, "It is very meaningful for me to be participating in this event as my parents were in the original recording. I am very proud to be Welsh and to carry on the family tradition."
Sophia Bush and James Lafferty reunited with their former One Tree Hill co-stars at a fan convention in Paris, France over the weekend (18-19Oct14). The actors convened at the Hyatt Regency Etoile Hotel on Saturday (18Oct14) to participate in the second edition of the From Wilmington To Paris event, which pays homage to the city of Wilmington, North Carolina, where the series was filmed.
Bush and Lafferty were joined by fellow co-stars Hilarie Burton, Robert Buckley, Bethany Joy Lenz, Stephen Colletti, Torrey DeVitto, Antwon Tanner, Shantel VanSanten and Kate Voegele for the two-day festivities, during which they spoke at various panels and mingled with fans.
The actors shared photos of their reunion on social media, with Bush posting a picture on Instagram.com showing her old friends Burton and Lenz, along with the caption, "Basically the best."
Noticeably missing from the event was Bush's former co-star and real life ex-husband Chad Michael Murray, who apologised to his fans a few days before the convention, expressing his apologies for missing out on the gathering.
He wrote, "Sorry I can't make it 2 Paris, Milan & London guys. Heavy into shooting @AgentCarterTV I'll try 2 make out sometime soon! Have a great time (sic)."
The U.S. drama ended in 2012 following a nine-season run.
So you might have heard: there was a One Tree Hill reunion this weekend. In Paris. The gang got back together for an OTH convention hosted by Guest Events called, "From Wilmington To Paris 2." Should have been from Tree Hill to Paris, but we guess it's cool since it gave us the best pictures to ever grace our Instagrams.
Our favorite Tree Hill girls finally got back together again and gave us OTH fans photographic evidence:
Basically the best.

B. Davis also reunited with her favorite Scott boys:

Ouch. Is that a burn to Lucas/Chad I see Sophia Bush? Probs not, because she's amazing. And the sweetest girl ever. Plus, we think everyone secretly loved Dan so much because he was the funniest character to hate. And he's hot.
But guys, Sophia was not the only person blowing up our Instagram newsfeed. Haley (Bethany Joy Lenz) was a selfie fiend this weekend.
There was a Naley moment. I repeat, A NALEY MOMENT HAPPENED:

American fans were so sad they couldn't be there:

People let this reunion make them wish (dream) for more:

Hollywood's former Batman, Michael Keaton, would reprise the superhero role "in a heartbeat" if director Tim Burton agreed to return.
The actor first played the Caped Crusader in 1989 blockbuster Batman and reprised the role in 1992 follow-up Batman Returns, both directed by Burton. Keaton has now revealed he would only consider stepping back into costume if he could work with Burton. When asked by Entertainment Weekly magazine if he would ever return to the role of Batman, Keaton replies:
"If it was Tim Burton directing? In a heartbeat. Tim, in the movies, really invented the whole dark superhero thing. He started everything, and some of the guys who have done these movies since then don't say that, and they're wrong." Keaton recently shocked fans when he revealed he has not watched Christopher Nolan's Batman trilogy, which featured Christian Bale in the lead role, saying, "Chris Nolan is great, but I've never seen any of the Batman movies all the way through. I know they're good. I just have zero interest in those kinds of movies."
The only way you could possibly understand any of these issues is if you're from Tree Hill. Since, there is only One Tree Hill and it's your home.

Welsh actor Michael Sheen is to direct and star in a special stage performance of Dylan Thomas' play Under Milk Wood. The Masters of Sex star will perform alongside Scandal actress Kate Burton, the daughter of late actor Richard Burton, during the one-off production at the 92nd Street Y community centre in New York, where the play first premiered in 1953.
Sheen will read the part of First Voice, the role Thomas played during the original read-through of the drama about the residents of a Welsh fishing village.
The free performance will be broadcast live on BBC Radio Wales on 26 October (14), the eve of the centenary of Thomas's birth.
Sheen says, "To perform it again and give it new life in the same place where it was first born really, then that's incredibly thrilling and very moving... And for it to go out at the same time on the radio in Wales, knowing that everyone in Wales will be able to listen to it at the same moment as people in New York are able to sit and listen to it as well, it's terrific."
Sheen took on the First Voice role for a BBC Wales TV adaptation in May (14). Richard Burton also played the part in the 1972 film version opposite his on/off wife Dame Elizabeth Taylor.
