'90210' Books 'Dawson's Creek' Alum Hal Ozsan

by Rebecca Paiement, posted Dec 1st 2009 12:40PM
Hal OzsanA familiar face will be making regular appearances at West Beverly Hills High this season.

The Ausiello Files is reporting that Hal Ozsan has joined the cast of '90210' as the school's new faculty advisor -- and, we assume, the object of many a crush.

Viewers will recognize Ozsan as Michael Cassidy from ABC Family's 'Kyle XY,' Todd Carr of the WB's 'Dawson's Creek' and a noteworthy appearance on 'Supernatural.' Ozsan is also a musical talent, fronting LA rockers Poets and Pornstars for four years and placing songs on such shows as 'Californication' and 'So You Think You Can Dance.'

New TV on DVD releases this week

by Bob Sassone, posted Nov 23rd 2009 6:00PM
Alfred Hitchcock PresentsHere are the new TV DVDs, in stores tomorrow.

Finally, season 4 of Alfred Hitchcock Presents is on DVD. I say finally because this season contains one of my favorite episodes of any TV series ever, "Man with a Problem," with Elizabeth Montgomery, Gary Merrill, and Peter Mark Richman. It has a great twist ending (you can watch it here). I have to start buying this show on DVD.

The Golden Age of Television DVD is a Criterion Collection set and includes some great live TV episodes, including "Marty," "Days of Wine and Roses," "The Comedian," "Requiem for a Heavyweight," "No Time For Sergeants," "A Wind from the South," and "Bang The Drum Slowly." Also comes with extensive commentaries and interviews and a booklet.

AliasHere are the new TV DVDs, in stores tomorrow.

Hmmm...no idea why there's a new edition of Alias' season 5 coming out tomorrow. There was another version of the season already released, but it has been discontinued. I wonder if there's something different in the set that will tick off fans who bought that deluxe Alias Complete Series Set with Rambaldi Artifact a while back.

And the fourth season of Felicity too. Maybe it's J.J. Abrams' birthday?

'Terminator' Q&A With Brian Austin Green

by Angie Argabrite, posted Feb 12th 2009 9:30AM
"That's not even a fair fight. That's bringing a gun to a knife fight ... "

Brian Austin Green made his name on the original 'Beverly Hills 90210,' as the dorky one, David Silver. After 10 years of teen-TV stardom, the actor took a break, making occasional TV movies and guest spots on TV shows, appearing in the short-lived Freddie Prinze Jr. sitcom, 'Freddie,' and building up a resume behind the scenes as a producer and director.

In the past few years, Green has found himself back in the spotlight, first as the fiance of mega-hot 'Transformers' star Megan Fox, and now as one of the stars of Fox's buzz-worthy sci-fi series 'Terminator: The Sarah Connor Chronicles' (Fri., 8PM, Fox).

AOL TV chatted with the Notorious B.A.G. about his wedding plans, who'd win in a fight between a Terminator and a Transformer, returning to '90210' -- not! -- and what he hates more than the paparazzi (answer: nothing). -- By Angie Argabrite

Best '90s TV Shows

by Kim Potts, posted Feb 9th 2009 1:00PM
We know, we know ... another "best of" list.

But this isn't any old list – our Top 40 TV Shows of the '90s is just the first in a new series of countdowns in which we'll put our AOL Television seal of approval on the top 40 series of every decade.

Every other month we'll tackle another decade, going all the way back to the '50s, to recall the best comedies (hello 'Lucy'), the best prime-time soaps (do you remember who shot JR?), the best cop shows, animated series and groundbreaking TV shows.

So kick off 50 years of silver-screen bests with the greatest shows of the '90s, including everyone from 'Beavis,' 'Buffy' and 'Simpsons' to 'Freaks and Geeks' and teens on the 'Creek.'

VH1 has a new celebreality show coming (also: I hate the word celebreality)

by Bob Sassone, posted Dec 2nd 2008 2:32PM
JacksonSo what's Jeremy Jackson been up to?

Jackson played David Hasselhoff's son Hobie on Baywatch many moons ago, and he's now one of the cast members of VH1's new celebreality (gah) show Confessions of a Teen Idol. He'll be joined by former Real World star Eric Nies; Christopher Atkins, the star of The Blue Lagoon; and former Beverly Hills, 90210 star Jamie Walters. Which makes me think that maybe the title of this show should be Confessions of a Former Teen Idol, since all of these guys are in their late 20 or 30s or 40s.

Actually, without even watching this show I can tell you what these people are up to: they're starring in a new VH1 reality show. They're trying to get back into the business in a big way, and I guess these days that means first starring in a reality show. Which, by the way, starts on January 4.

90210 premiere makes record ratings

by Brad Trechak, posted Sep 3rd 2008 7:02PM
90210Whatever the critics say, 90210 did score a ratings win for the CW. It was the highest-rated scripted series premiere in the network's two year history.

It didn't do overwhelming numbers for a network show (it was watched by 4.9 million viewers and had a 2.6 ratings among adults 18 to 40), but it is better than the CW has done before. If the show can continue to do well in the ratings, the CW may actually cancel that "going out of business" sale.

I have to agree with Joel's analysis about the reasoning behind not sending the screeners to critics: it wasn't made for them. Bad reviews from the myriad of old male critics would have only hurt the ratings. Gossip Girl also got a boost in the ratings, so don't count the CW out of the race yet. Now I'm waiting to see if the major changes on Smallville pay off.

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.

Another original joins the new 90210

by Brad Trechak, posted Jul 9th 2008 8:24AM
Joe E. TataThe reunion never stops. Now, Joe E. Tata is reviving his role as Nat, the owner of the Peach Pit, for the new version of 90210. His character will be appearing in the pilot. It is uncertain whether the character will have a recurring role within the new series.

"The coin's in the air for me," Tata told The Associated Press. "I guess it comes under the heading of magic test: Let's see if the audience still remembers me."

He joins a reunion of Jennie Garth, Tori Spelling, and possibly Shannon Doherty in the new series. Jason Priestley has yet to be confirmed.

At this rate, why even bother having new cast members? Aren't having all these original members back expensive enough as it is? I wish every relaunch of a series had so many original cast members involved. Actually, when I think of shows like Battlestar Galactica, maybe that's not such a good idea.

Casting news from Sons of Anarchy and 90210

by Brett Love, posted Jul 7th 2008 12:01PM

Meghan Markle - Deal Or No Deal - 90210With The Shield getting set to call it a day, Jay Karnes (Detective Wagenbach) could use a new gig. As is so often the case when looking for work, it's good to have friends. Karnes has landed a new role on FX's Sons of Anarchy, which just happens to be created by Kurt Sutter, writer/executive producer of The Shield. He's signed up for six episodes as an ATF agent named Scott Kohn.

There should be less gunplay involved for Meghan Markle (Deal Or No Deal) and Kellan Lutz (The Comeback). The pair have joined the CW's new version of 90210. Markle will take on the role of Wendy, one of the West Beverly High vixens who takes advantage of her looks. Lutz is on board to play star lacrosse player George Evans. Lutz is 23 and Markle is 26, so it would appear that they've kept that same age appropriate casting the original was famous for. Personally, I just really like the idea of a Deal Or No Deal model being cast on 90210.

BH90210 title bwSo Shannen may be coming to the new 90210, and Jennie is definitely in the cast, and Tori will miss the first few episodes because she just had a baby, but generally speaking, there's been lots of buzz and interest in the upcoming, 2008 version of Beverly Hills 90210.

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.
