Scott Patterson Joins '90210'

Stars Hollow is coming to Beverly Hills.

According to the Ausiello Files, '90210' has recruited Scott Patterson to play Liam's biological father for at least two episodes. The casting is especially nice, as Patterson previously worked with showrunner Rebecca Sinclair on 'Gilmore Girls.'

Patterson is known for his work as Luke Danes in 'Gilmore Girls,' a role he kept for seven years. He was also called "spongeworthy" by Elaine on 'Seinfeld,' wooed Grace on an episode of 'Will & Grace' and appeared in two of the big screen's 'Saw' movies, 'Saw IV' and 'Saw V.'Stars Hollow is coming to Beverly Hills.

Patterson is also, no doubt, a valued member of any studio softball team, since he spent most of the '80s as a professional minor league baseball pitcher.

Earlier this year, Sinclair lured model Kelly Lynch to play Ivy's mother on the show and, as we reported, Rumer Willis was brought on as a lesbian love for teen mom Adrianna. But with Sinclair's past work on 'Buffy the Vampire Slayer' and 'Gilmore,' we thought of a few more folks she could rope in over at '90210.'

James Marsters
As the platinum blond vampire Spike on 'Buffy,' American Marsters pulled off an English accent fairly well, so a stint in the VP role at West Beverly High would be a cakewalk -- not to mention a good reason for kids to show up to school.

David Boreanaz

If he could step away from Fox's 'Bones' for a second, we think Boreanaz would be great as the leader of one of Adrianna's AA meetings.

Alexis Bledel

After playing Rory Gilmore, Bledel headed over to an episode of ER. But since she'll always be young Rory in our hearts, we'd love to see her head back to high school one more time.

Edward Herrmann

The Emmy and Tony award winner made an adorable grandfather as Richard Gilmore, and could spin a few patriarchal yarns in Beverly as well.
