'90210' exclusive: 'Days' hunk Trevor Donovan cast as model citizen

Trevor-Donovan_l No disrespect to Dustin Milligan, but, um, er… Ethan who?

90210 has tapped Abercrombie & Fitch model-turned-soap star Trevor Donovan to fill the show’s “golden boy” vacancy, sources confirm to me exclusively.

The genetically blessed Donovan, who channeled Days of Our Lives bad boy Jeremy Horton for four months in 2007, will play Teddy, West Beverly’s own version of JFK Jr. Gorgeous, smart, athletic, charming, and naturally confident, Teddy has the unique ability to make any girl feel like she’s the most beautiful person in the room. And any guy like he’s a cross between Shrek and Jiminy Glick.

Donovan, whose 90210 gig is described as heavily recurring, will debut early on in the show’s upcoming second season.

Okay, all you Armchair Casting Directors out there: Thumbs up? Thumbs down? Thumbs sideways? Comment away!

    Soap star joins a primetime soap. Seems logical to me.

    Um, he looks like he should a coach, not a student. Try casting age appropriately. It’s getting ri-donk!

    • jasonandrews

      he’s pure beauty and it was a great casting choice the other guys are all flabby

    • WaldenMediaboy

      This guy has movie star quality Good eye CW you have yourself a star

  • Tyler

    if the stage name trevor donovan doesn’t scream ‘i’m a soap star who used to turn tricks on the boulevard,’ i don’t know what does.

  • Kristal

    I have to agree, he looks old to be playing a high school student.

    • joesie

      he’s beautiful and i’m soooooo glad they cast him. Yaaaaaaaa

    • boyohboy

      He looks great don’t care his age as long as I find him attractive and he has a nice body. Heck he’s in better shape than any other guy on this show!!!

  • Lilly

    Sorry, the guy looks sooo old and yes, his body is hot – but his face? Dustin Millegan looked much better.. thumbs down!

  • Kate

    Seems a bit older than 16 or 17, doesn’t he? What was so wrong with Dustin Milligan, anyway (considering the context)?

  • Aushole

    YAY!!!!!
    FINALLY THE REAL 90210 RETURNS!!!
    THIS IS WHAT IT WAS MISSING, HIGH SCHOOL KIDS BEING PLAYED BY 30-SOMETHING-YEAR-OLDS

  • Tom H

    Ummm. I sat through his performances on DAYS. Noting in the article that he was only there four months should scream volumes to the talent that he displayed on the show.
    Scream Volumes.
    I don’t really see this as anything positive for 90210

    • goodTVman

      he’s very talented and hot. you know how hard a soap opera is and there is only 1 take so give him a break. he’s way better looking than the other plump guy

  • Maxie

    Thumbs waaaaaaaaaaaay down, he’s playing a 17 yr. old, Jesus com’on LOL

    • boyohboy

      Thumb wayyyyy UP for Trevor!!!

  • Rich

    He sucked on DAYS,he’ll probably suck here too. What is he,like,25,26 maybe?

    • amj

      Actually according to IMDB he will be 31 in October. Agreed, he would be a great coach but student..that’s a stretch. Sure is hot though.

  • Michele

    He’s 31 :/ I want Dustin Milligan back

  • Stephanie

    Hi
    I agree this guy looks way too old and his stint on days was not very memorable. I mean they couldn’t find anyone better than him to play Teddy. I think Landon Liberion would of been a better choice plus he’s gorgeous and looks the part, oh well I guess I’ll see Lance on degassi next year.
    Stephanie

    • Randell

      You are mad. I would love this man every which way and then some. who cares how old he is!

  • fer

    It seems a little old for a student.

    Hi my name is Stephanie and yeah I agree this guy looks too old to play a high school jock and sorry to say this he’s not that attractive. His stinit on Days was not that memorable at all, they could of found someone much better than him, I think Lance Liberion would of been a better choice too bad he’s in Canada and on Degrassi next season. BAd move 90210.
    Stephanie

    • goodTVman

      NO more Degrassi bombs! Trevor Donovan is gorgeous and a very talented actor. Support the show and it’s actors and don’t bash anyone.

  • Samantha F

    oh my god, he’s 30. I guess the new 90210 needs a “too old” actor like the original. See: Gabrielle Carteris.
    PS – I’m a huge Days fan and hated his “acting”. Even by soap standards, it needed help.

    • Randell

      what an aweful nasty thing to say. let’s see you try and do acting.
