Tyler Wilson on the set of 'Hellcats'11-year-old Ohio native Tyler Wilson became national news back in September when he was bullied at school for wanting to be a cheerleader. Apparently the other kids thought that was worthy of a beating that led to a broken arm for Tyler.

Bullying certainly isn't a new issue in schools, but it's getting more attention lately, as big-name celebrities are speaking out against it.

When Tyler's story made headlines, the cast of The CW's 'Hellcats' made a PSA reminding kids that it's their right to be whatever they want to be; they even invited Tyler to the show's set to see some tough TV cheerleaders, male and female, in action.

AOL TV is proud to share this exclusive behind-the-scenes video of Tyler's visit to Vancouver, including anti-bullying messages from stars Aly Michalka, Matt Barr, Heather Hemmens and Robbie Jones; Tyler learning some moves from the show's choreographer; and a sneak peek of the scenes he got to be a part of in this week's episode, 'Before I Was Caught' (airs Tuesday, April 26, 9PM ET on The CW).

Matt Barr on 'Hellcats'As Dan, the everyman BFF of cheerleader Marti on The CW's 'Hellcats,' Matt Barr is finally playing a character his mother approves of.

After a stint on 'One Tree Hill' playing an attempted rapist who holds two high school girls hostage on prom night, Barr's family is happy to watch him play a normal character again. "My family likes 'Hellcats,'" Barr said when he phoned TV Squad last week during a break from filming his hit show. "They're like 'Oh, we can actually watch you.'"

Far from the heavy issues plaguing 'OTH''s "psycho" Derek, Dan's major problems on 'Hellcats' are mostly of the girl-related variety. Stuck in a juicy love triangle between his free-spirited childhood best friend, Marti, and her religious roommate, Savannah, Dan has some major decision-making to do.

Read on to find out who Barr's rooting for in the Marti-Savannah-Dan love triangle, his admiration for Bear Grylls, and why the name Matt Barr is now synonymous with "murderer rapist pedophile."

Aly Michalka and Robbie JonesIf 'Bring it On' is one of your favorite guilty pleasures, you get 'Fired Up' at the sight of pom-poms, or a cheerleading uniform is your default Halloween costume of choice, chances are you're already hooked on the CW's peppy freshman drama 'Hellcats,' a spirited (or should we say "spirit-fingered"?) look at the world of competitive college cheerleading.

If you're not already hooked, perhaps we can entice you to join the team with this perky preview. Two weeks ago, TV Squad was among a group of journalists invited to visit the set of the Vancouver-based show, and we returned with all sorts of intel on what's in store for our ridiculously attractive squad.

Castle: Inventing the Girl

(S02E03) I don't watch Castle because I really need another New York-based police procedural in my life. I watch it because it's funny, quirky, and because Nathan Fillion is dreamy. So while I would be hard-pressed to ever find a bad episode of Castle, this one wasn't my favorite. It just wasn't fun enough.

I'm not really enthralled with models, so the whole "behind the scenes at Fashion Week" thing really doesn't appeal to me very much. However, I do like how the theme of youth and beauty plays itself out throughout the show; first with the obsession over these qualities inherent in the modeling world, then with Castle's realization that he is at the age in which the beautiful young woman he meets isn't someone he met at a party, but rather the gawky girl who babysat his daughter and watched High School Musical with her. All the while, Castle's mother is dealing with the fact that she is no longer getting the ingenue parts, but is instead being offered that of the the crazy granny who dies offstage.
