Another 90210 alum gets in on spin-off, more want in

Beverly Hills 90210Let's hear it for second chances. 90210 is looking like a reunion as well as a new series.

It seems that Tori Spelling is making a cameo is the first episode. She will speak a few lines to the new cast of teen girls at the local mall. She joins Jennie Garth as a cast member from the original series that will be appearing in the new one. Considering that her father produced the original series, I'm surprised it took her so long to sign on.

90210 alum makes deal with MySpace

by Kristin Sample, posted May 17th 2008 9:02AM
Ian Ziering And 90210 makes the news again this week! But I don't mind because I can never get enough Bevelry Hills, 90210 (or Bev as I affectionately call it). Ian Ziering will be developing webisodes with social-networking titan MySpace. These web shorts will be based on Man Vs. Monday, a film Ziering directed, produced and even starred in two years ago. The webisodes will be about an office slacker who has trouble getting through his Mondays after his crazy weekends.

Why the choice to develop the shows with MySpace? "In the entertainment industry there remains one constant: change. I believe the digital world presents tremendous opportunities for the producers who understand it, and I am launching a digital production company, iMan Productions, to take advantage of this opportunity," Ziering told a press conference. Is he on to something here?

Ziering will also star opposite Heather Graham and Jerry O'Connell in the comedy Baby on Board to be released later this year.

Jason Priestley says no to dancing, maybe to 90210

by Allison Waldman, posted May 5th 2008 1:04PM
Jason PriestleyThe new Beverly Hills 90210 is busy casting and coming together, but it doesn't seem like any of the stars from the original Fox hit will be involved. Don't look for Brandon Walsh among the characters, at least not with the man who created him. Jason Priestley admits that nobody from the new 90210 has even contacted him about an appearance. In a brief interview with momlogic.com, Jason said, "I'm certainly open to it. I loved working on that show. I loved everything I did on that show. I had so many jobs on that show, I loved it so."

On the other hand, Priestley makes it abundantly clear that he has no interest in following in the dancing footsteps of two of his 90210 castmates, Ian Ziering and Jennie Garth, by joining Dancing With the Stars. He just can't dance and he makes no bones about his inability to do a Fred Astaire or Gene Kelly turn. His hobby is on the race track, not the dance floor.

Some big actor-to-character age differences on TV

by Keith McDuffee, posted Feb 25th 2008 1:03PM
cast of 90210How good are you at spotting someone's true age? There's been a few times I've caught myself wondering how old that actor really is on TV, when they're playing someone my age and look ten years older. Do I really look that good? Then again, I've seen the opposite and thought, "damn, I am an old decrepit fart." In any case, I'll pull up IMDb and usually find myself in shock of how young/old the actor on-screen really is.

The whole actor-to-character age ratio thing got me curious, so I did a little research (with the help of some of the TV Squad team) and made a list of some of the more extreme and well-known (or, maybe to some, not-so-well-known) examples. By the way, we didn't include actors who played flashback scenes of their characters for short periods of time, as there are more of those than we have room for.

The best and the worst post-DWTS careers - VIDEO

by Brett Love, posted Oct 30th 2007 12:20PM
Shandi Finnessey - DWTSOur pals over at AOL have a list up of those celebrities that have seen a boost to their careers after appearing on Dancing With The Stars. Head over there to see what John, Tatum, Stacy, and eight others are up to.

A gig on a show that counts itself as two of the top ten most watched programs every week certainly offers ample opportunities. But, like KISS said, there are two sides of the coin to choose from. So... after the jump, a look at those celebrities that have been somewhat less successful after their time in the ballroom.

Dancing With The Stars: Week 8

Billy Ray Cyrus, Karina Smirnoff
(S04E14)
Which one of these doesn't belong? As is par for the course on Dancing With The Stars, somebody always gets through on the power of the fan vote, surpassing contestants that are superior dancers. This year, that somebody is Billy Ray Cyrus. We could argue all day about whether or not Billy Ray should still be on the show, but one thing is for sure, while he is here, he makes things interesting. Read on to hear about the latest dustup.

Dancing With The Stars: Week 6

Dancing WIth The Stars

(S04E10) With only seven couples left, it's getting tough to fill that 90 minute block. Rather than force ABC to trot out another sure to disappoint sit-com, the powers that be at DWTS added the group swing performance. Having now seen it, I have to say it was a good idea. We'll get to that in a moment though. First, the couples all had to perform for the judges.

Dancing With The Stars: Week 4 results

Tom Bergeron, Drew Lachey(S04E07) They opened the show tonight by naming Apolo and Joey as the standouts. I think they have it right on that one. Ian and Laila have the stuff to get themselves back in contention, but as we sit now, Apolo and Joey are a step ahead of everyone else. Two steps in front of a few people.

When it came time to pick the encore, Len credited Ian, Apolo, and Heather as having great performances the night before, but the encore went to Joey & Kym. It was a good choice. They were the best of the night, and their paso doble was just as good the second time around. They were followed up by the first musical performance of the night.

Dancing With The Stars: Week 4

by Brett Love, posted Apr 10th 2007 3:00AM
laila and maksim(S04E06) Tom kicked off week four by proclaiming, "It's time to go big, or go home." I would disagree with that. We are still early enough in the competition that people can continue to skate by on popularity. When they get down to four couples, then it will be time to go big.

Len followed that up by going to the stats. According to his numbers, this group has been slacking on the practice. They have only been practicing 13 hours a week. The teams from the last season averaged 19 hours. He said that it shows in their performance, but I don't notice a stark difference between the two seasons. I think we have a similar division of couples again this year. He followed that up with a threat of lower scores for anyone he thinks isn't putting in the work. I wasn't buying that, but in retrospect, this was some of the tougher judging they have ever done. That said, on with the show.

Dancing With The Stars: Week 2 results

PAULINA PORIZKOVA, ALEC MAZO, SHANDI FINNESSEY, BRIAN FORTUNA
(S04E03) I'm always amazed at just how much programming ABC is able to mine from Dancing With The Stars. The performance recap show that led up to the live results show was another good example. Not that there's anything wrong with it. I'm guessing that when the numbers come in that recap show will do two, if not three, times as many viewers as George Lopez and According To Jim would in the same slot.

Dancing with the Stars: Week 2

by Brett Love, posted Mar 27th 2007 2:30AM
Apollo Ohno, Julianne Hough(S04E02) Two weeks in and I have to say that this is a pretty good group of contestants. The new format with two weeks of performances before the first elimination was a good idea. Sometimes a contestant just doesn't handle a particular dance well, so it's nice to see them get a second shot. Lots of contestants, so a lot to cover. Let's get to it.

Apolo Anton Ohno and Julianne Hough (Quick Step) - At its base, the show is about the "Stars." The partners certainly factor in though, and I continue to be impressed with Julianne. She might be just 18 years old, but she carries herself as well as any of the other pros. It doesn't hurt that she is absolutely adorable either. Apollo has officially impressed me now. I didn't have high expectations for him coming in, but he really shows the potential to be a contender. Len said Apollo is going to stay for weeks and weeks. Bruno called it cool, fresh, young, and exciting. Carrie Ann was impressed with the footwork and sync. High praise all around, and deservedly so. The scores, (8, 9, 9) I like that score. A great start to the night.
