Luke Perry on His '90210' Hair: 'I Had the Coolest Hair on Television, Flat-Out'

Luke PerryBrenda or Kelly?

Though Luke Perry has a diverse body of work spanning more than two decades, that's one question he'll never be able to dodge. Luckily, Perry's a good sport about his 'Beverly Hills, 90210' days and indulged us in answering a few burning questions when we caught up with him last week to discuss his Hallmark Movie Channel film, 'Goodnight for Justice.'

Once and for all, Perry is quite decidedly on Team Kelly. "I've firmly come down on the side of Kelly on this a number of times," he told us. "She had more money, she was less problematic, I didn't have to worry about her brother kicking my ass, you know?"

Since Jennifer Aniston recently confessed that she actually hated her famous Rachel haircut, we wondered how Perry felt about Dylan McKay's pompadour.

"I'll tell you what now: I had the coolest hair on television, flat-out. I did it on purpose, for a reason, and I have no regrets about that. Sorry that you felt bad, Jen, and stop picking loser boyfriends, and you'll be fine," he joked.

Luke Perry, Goodnight for JusticeAs John Goodnight, a stalwart judge in the 19th-century Wyoming Territory, Luke Perry's latest role is quite different from the California surfer we know and love. But it's just as personal to Perry, who worked on developing 'Goodnight for Justice' and even brought in his old 'Beverly Hills, 90210' buddy Jason Priestley to direct.

When TV Squad caught up with Perry a few days ago while he was making the press rounds for the Hallmark Movie Channel film, which premieres tomorrow night, he told us why he was so passionate about the project. (He loves history. And justice.)

Read on for Perry's thoughts on why making a period drama is a nice change of pace, knowing how to handle a gun, and why he watches the Disney Channel so much.

Review: 'Leverage' - 'The Future Job'

by Danny Gallagher, posted Feb 4th 2010 8:36AM

(S02E13) "He who sells miracles will have the devil knocking at his door."/"What's that? A proverb?"/"A fortune cookie." - Alec to Parker


Probably the most interesting aspect of 'Leverage', other than Parker's wonderful taste in form fitting dresses, is the way it manages to top itself in small areas.

Not every episode is a home run in every category on the checklist, but it does find new ways to heighten the action, increase the twists and broaden their stories give or take an episode.

My So-Called LifeOh, bad boys, what would we do without you? While in real life you're more trouble than you're worth, on screen your sulky swaggering, tough talk and icy eyes almost always belie a tender heart beneath the bravado. And that's where you're best enjoyed -- from a safe distance.

Here's a look at the TV desperados who made our hearts melt, in our countdown of TV's Top 20 Bad Boys. -- By Liane Bonin

Jason Priestly says he "did his time" on 90210

by Kona Gallagher, posted Jul 14th 2008 3:03PM
Jason PriestleyDon't expect to see Brandon Walsh hanging out with the rest of the gang at The Peach Pit when the new 90210 debuts this fall. Jason Priestly, who played Brandon throughout 90210's original incarnation has revealed that he has in fact been approached by CW execs about reprising his role--but that he has turned them down.

Priestley, who is currently promoting a one episode directing stint on The Secret Life of the American Teenager, seems to be more interested in taking a seat behind the camera than donning his acid-washed jeans in front of it. While Walsh appeared in nearly 250 episodes of the teen soap, he also directed 18 of them. Despite turning down the CW's original offer, he seems quite interested in taking a seat on the director's chair.

Is Shannen Doherty really coming to the new 90210?

by Allison Waldman, posted Jul 2nd 2008 10:38AM
Shannen D 90210The new 90210 has yet to air but it's already created a tremendous amount of buzz. The return of actresses Tori Spelling and Jennie Garth from the original series has made news, as well as Luke Perry's words that he won't be coming back and Jason Priestley letting the world know he'd be available to direct.

But what about Brenda?

Well, in his new perch at Entertainment Weekly, Michael Ausiello reports that his sources -- producers Gabe Sachs and Jeff Judah -- have confirmed that Miss Shannen Doherty is in formal talks to join 90210 in her original role, Brenda Walsh.

Welcome back to 90210 ... except you, Shannon

by Brad Trechak, posted May 24th 2008 11:01AM
Lori LaughlinActress Lori Laughlin believes that any cast reunion that takes place on 90210 will most certainly not include Shannen Doherty. In the OK Magazine article, the actress is quoted as saying "I don't think anyone wants to touch that."

Doherty has a history of rancor between herself and the cast and crew around her. She left Beverly Hills 90210 after four years, and the departure was pretty acrimonious. When she later joined the cast of Charmed (also produced by Aaron Spelling), she left after three years due to supposed problems with her co-star Alyssa Milano.

On the other hand, according to Laughlin, the door is still open for other cast members such as Luke Perry and Jason Priestley. Tori Spelling is already reported to be appearing in the pilot.
Nothing makes a spin-off official like having original cast members in it. It seems a shame that Shannen Doherty keeps shooting herself in the foot like this.

90210 getting a spin-off

Beverly Hills 90210Schools in! For 11 seasons, Beverly Hills 90210, was a ratings hit and trend-setting youth soap opera for Fox. Now, a mere eight years later, the CW will spin-off Beverly Hills 90210, coming up with a contemporary version of the well-loved, if corny, teen drama.

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.

Only 344 days left until Lifetime's next Christmas movie

by Jason Hughes, posted Jan 22nd 2008 3:29PM
Joanna GarciaYou might want to make a note of this because it's gonna be a long time before you see it. Lifetime wants us to know there's been some major casting done on their holiday-themed movie A Very Merry Daughter of the Bride. Luke Perry, JoAnna Garcia, Helen Shaver and Kenneth Welsh have all jumped on board the film, which is cleverly scheduled to air in December 2008. I wish they'd give me a date because I really need to schedule a hair appointment that night.

It looks like it's the story of a daughter (Garcia) who disapproves of her mother's (Shaver) upcoming nuptials and so enlists the groom's (Welsh) son (Perry) to try and persuade the pair to not wed. But the groom's son is Luke Perry, and this movie's on Lifetime so I think we all know what happens. And then Judith Light makes a cameo appearance as an empowered woman who survived an abusive past to become a stronger person (Okay, not really but you believed me for a minute there). I'm ashamed to admit it, but I'm weeping a bit right now just thinking about how touching it all is. I mean trying to break up your parents' wedding; what spells H-O-L-I-D-A-Y-S better than that!
