'Beverly Hills 90210' spinoff casting begins: Dustin Milligan tapped for pilot


Dustin Milligan (The Messengers) is the first actor to join the cast of the CW’s planned spinoff of Beverly Hills 90210 from executive producer Rob Thomas (Veronica Mars). According to the show’s producers, Milligan, who also appeared in the short-lived CW show Runaway, will play a “likable, genuine…star athlete” named Ethan who befriends the 90210 group of teens.

Published reports have said the spinoff will revolve around the Mills family of Beverly Hills whose matriarch, Tabitha, is a 60-something has-been actress and alcoholic. Tabitha’s adult son, Harry, moves back to Beverly Hills to care for his mother. Joining him are his wife Celia, an Olympic athlete-turned-personal trainer, and their two 16-year-old children who may make up the new 90210 crew.

    this is going to be the greatest show in the history of television

    Tabitha Mills? Maybe they can get Juliet Mills to star since she already plays a Tabitha on Passions the most tacky show ever to grace television. She’s the right age and everything.

    Please have Claire come back as one of those kids mother. She was one of my favorite characters.

  • dala

  • anr

    he also guest starred on The N show “About a Girl”.

  • Ric Flair

    The only way I will watch this show is if they bring back a couple of the old characters. (Not Aundria)

  • Loche

    Please, don’t make me laugh.

    This whole “90210 spinoff” thing is the stupidest thing ever!! How can something be a spinoff if the cast is entirely new and has nothing to do with the original show??? Just because they are both set in Beverly Hills doesn’t make it a spinoff!! That’s like saying Grey’s Anatomy is a spinoff of Frasier because they are both set in Seattle!!
    So unless 90210 brings back a real original character, it’s not a spinoff. And it can’t be a very loose connection like Dylan’s half-sister who appeared in 3 episodes – it has to be a real original character or it’s NOT a spinoff. It just bugs me that EW and the media keep calling it a spinoff that’s all. But it’ll suck anyway. It’ll just be “The OC” meets “Gossip Girl”.

    How about a married Dylan and Kelly dealing with Brenda and Dylan’s rebellious British lovechild!

  • 90210 Never Dies

    This is an embarassment to the original. If they don’t bring back one of the true 90210’ers, no one will watch. I mean, c’mon…seriously…None of the original characters are doing anything! Where’s Steve Sanders when you need him? CW crap at it’s finest.

    This is just going to be the next copy of teh OC. But you never know until you watch it…
    Personally, I’m loving the upper east side and Gossip Girl (coming back Monday April 21st at 8PM on CW)!

    Some fan you were. Claire died of AIDS in the series finale.

    Oh, for God’s sake. Just get back to “Veronica Mars” and forget this 90210 nonsense!

  • Bruno

    I read that one of the kids who hosts the morning student news show is Andrea’s daughter with that guy she married. I’m not going to hate this show just yet. Especially since I read that some kids toilet paper the Spelling mansion in the pilot. Rob wrote a role for Kelly Taylor, but he really should have brought back Brenda.

    nothing can top the original but this will be greaTTT
