Are you completely geeking out about the Gilmore Girls revival yet? Shooting has already started at the fictional Stars Hollow, and we're still learning which of our favorite characters will be joining every day.

In the series, Paris started out as a nemesis to Rory (Alexis Bledel) at elite prep school Chilton, yet they somehow wound up bonding and ended up as friends and roommates at Yale together.

Weil made the announcement at the aTVfest in Atlanta on February 6, and her timing is perfect. "I start on Tuesday, which I really feel like bodes well that I get to start on a Tuesday being that we used to [air] on a Tuesday," Weil, 38, said at the event. "Tuesday is my first day, and I'm nervous!"

Since the show ended, Weil has gone on to play Bonnie Winterbottom on How to Get Away With Murder, which is such a far departure from her overly confident character on Gilmore Girls that we almost forgot how perfectly she played the most annoying best friend ever, Paris Geller.

She'll be appearing in two of the four 90-minute episodes. She said, "I'm very excited about it ... Obviously, there's a lot of nostalgia surrounding the project, and I can't wait to dive into it. I was very emotional when I read the script, and it's going to be great to revisit my old friend Paris."

Other cast members who have been confirmed include Bledel, Lauren Graham (Lorelai), Scott Patterson (Luke), Kelly Bishop (Emily), Keiko Agena (Lane), Sean Gunn (Kirk), Yanic Truesdale (Michel), and Matt Czuchry (Logan).

There are also rumors that Rory's dad Christopher, played by David Sutcliffe, may be returning ... we hope to a happily married Luke and Lorelai. Hey, we can dream, right?
