Ian Ziering Goes From '90210' to ... Cosmetics Salesman?

by Joel Keller, posted Oct 27th 2010 11:45AM
Aren't you always curious to see what your favorite TV stars of the past are up to now? Of course you do; if we didn't, VH1 would cease to exist. But it's even more fun to accidentally come across a story about a former TV star as you cruise the web trying to find a restaurant name or just getting some news about a place where you used to live.

So when I came across the story of 'Beverly Hills 90210' star Ian Ziering visiting a Morristown, NJ beauty salon, I got that tingly "oh my bleeping God" feeling I experience when I know I'm about to read something that's going to make my day.

Then I actually read the article. Consider my mind officially blown.

Ziering was at the salon to make a presentation to the staff about a line of cosmetics he was promoting.

Yes, you read that right: Ian Ziering is now a cosmetics salesman. But, wait -- it gets much, much better.

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

by Brad Trechak, posted May 21st 2008 9:21AM
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.

Ian Ziering dances over to Lifetime

by Bob Sassone, posted Jan 28th 2008 2:24PM

Ian ZieringLooks like Ian Ziering is just going to have a career that completely revolves around dancing on reality/game shows. Or hosting them.

After a failed attempt to take over Bob Barker's job on The Price Is Right, the Dancing with the Stars alum will host Lifetime's new reality competition show Your Mama Don't Dance. The show will feature ten professional dancers who team up with their parents to compete for "an undetermined prize worth $100,000." Why don't they just give them $100,000 cash? Hopefully they won't be stuck with 50,000 Your Mama Don't Dance t-shirts.

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.

Price Is Right host search down to two?

by Bob Sassone, posted Jul 12th 2007 1:25PM

PlinkoIt looks like the long search for the new host of The Price Is Right is down to two: Sarah Silverman and David Hasselhoff.

Just kidding! The New York Post is reporting that producers have narrowed it down to two contestants: Mark Steines and Todd Newton. Steines is a host on Entertainment Tonight (he'll keep the job if he gets the PIR gig), and Newton has hosted several game shows, including a PIR show in Las Vegas. The pay for the job is reportedly near $3 million a year. Nice.

Hmmm...I'm not sure about this. But I guess they're both competent hosts. It looks like producers are going for the safer choices (male, slightly older, experienced) than going with someone like Mario Lopez or Ian Ziering.

ESPN's Dan Patrick did not audition for The Price Is Right

by Bob Sassone, posted Jul 5th 2007 2:01PM

Dan PatrickThis is odd. We've been covering this whole "who is going to replace Bob Barker" story for several months now, and this is the first time I've heard Dan Patrick's name come up.

But the ESPN Radio host told listeners yesterday that although he didn't audition to be the new host of The Price Is Right, producers of the CBS game show did indeed call him and ask if he wanted to audition. He said, um, no. (OK, I added the "um" part, but you can probably imagine he was thinking it that way.)

Rosie out of the running for Price Is Right gig

by Bob Sassone, posted Jun 25th 2007 2:01PM

RosieRosie O'Donnell has answered the prayers of many longtime Price Is Right fans: she has taken herself out of the running for the hosting job.

Of course, no one officially offered her the job, but she did meet with the show's producers for lunch last week. She would love to host the show, but as she says on her latest video blog, she doesn't want to uproot her family and move out to L.A., where the show is taped. She knows that a lot of people would, but she doesn't need the money and would rather take on projects that would keep her in New York.

So now we're down to only 47 other people who could host.

Now Ian Ziering has auditioned for The Price Is Right?!

by Bob Sassone, posted Jun 19th 2007 3:27PM

Ian ZieringMario Lopez...George Hamilton...Mark Steines...and now Ian Ziering? Are the producers serious about keeping The Price Is Right going, or are they just trying to find a way to end the show now that Bob Barker has left?

Yup, the former Beverly Hills, 90210 and Dancing with the Stars star (and I'll always remember him from The Guiding Light many years ago) auditioned for the gig last week. So the list seems to actually be growing. Besides the names above, don't forget John O'Hurley, Todd Newton, and The Early Show's Dave Price, who should insist on the job since he has the right name for it.

Oh, and Rosie O'Donnell is meeting with producers this week. Radar has a sneak peek at what a Rosie-hosted TPIR might be like.

Watch Ian Ziering get beat up - VIDEO

by Bob Sassone, posted May 30th 2007 10:02AM
KimmelHere's a funny clip from a recent Jimmy Kimmel Live. Seems Kimmel bet a lot of money that former Beverly Hills 90210 star Ian Ziering would actually win Dancing with the Stars. But Ziering lost, and Kimmel didn't win the $4000 that he could have won. So he sends his Uncle Frank and Cousin Sal over to Ziering's dressing room to beat him up. But Uncle Frank doesn't stop there.

The thing that stands out to me in the video? Even in a comedy sketch, Ziering isn't a very good actor. Takes a fake punch well though. Video after the jump!

Dancing With The Stars: Week 9 Results

by Erin Martell, posted May 16th 2007 1:20AM

Joey Fatone and Kym Johnson

(S04E17) This week's elimination wasn't exactly shocking, but there was a lot of suspense leading up to the final announcement. There was also a ton of filler, and not the entertaining Kenny Mayne-style filler. In the recap of Monday's performances, we learned that Julianne snorts when she laughs, which only makes her more adorable.

Dancing With The Stars: Week 9

by Erin Martell, posted May 15th 2007 12:02AM

Ian Ziering(S04E16) We've reached the (thankfully) Cyrus-free semifinals, and it looks like tomorrow's elimination will be a nail-biter. There was absolutely no dead weight on the dance floor, a fact that made for an exciting evening of performances. There were perfect scores, pelvic thrusts, and the phrase "Yours is bigger." What's not to like?

Apolo Anton Ohno and Julianne Hough (Quickstep) - This week the contestants got to pick their favorite Ballroom and Latin dance styles. For the Ballroom round, Apolo and Julianne chose the Quickstep. Revealing his competitive spirit, Apolo set quite a few goals for himself. He wanted tens for his Ballroom round, and he wanted perfect scores for both dances.

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.
