The One Tree Hill tradition of actors getting behind the camera continues! James Lafferty, better known to us as NBA dad Nathan Scott, directed tonight's episode, "I and Love and You" -- and show creator Mark Schwahn promises it will be an emotional ride (he cried when he wrote it, y'all).
What's got Mark in a kerfuffle? Lots of Clay/Sarah and Quinn/David relationship backstory, apparently -- which both gives us a ton of info we've been waiting for, and James some convenient off-camera time. The 24-year-old actor also directed last season's episode "Show Me How to Live."
Other One Tree Hill stars who've tried their hand at helming? Paul Johansson, Moira Kelly, Chad Michael Murray, and Bethany Joy Galeotti.
