In 2010, Brian Austin Green played a big part in a wedding, marrying Megan Fox. In 2012, he will play a fun part in another wedding… on Happy Endings. EW has learned the 90210/Sarah Connor Chronicles vet will guest-star in the season finale of the ABC comedy as a charming dude who winds up attending the nuptials of Penny’s other gay best friend Derrick (Stephen Guarino). The tricky part: He’s not in the best physical condition. The juicy part: He’ll be flirting hard with Penny (Casey Wilson). READ FULL STORY

If you thought 2012 would be the year you didn’t get a Train song stuck in your heads, here’s the first sign that resistance is futile.
EW has learned exclusively that Train has scheduled a stop on the CW’s 90210 for an episode scheduled to air in late February. The band, whose new single “Drive By” drops tomorrow on iTunes, will perform their newest single in the episode, which finds the gang heading to a music festival in the desert.
90210 has a history is booking high-profile musical guests. All-American Rejects and Cobra Starship are among those who have also appeared. This season also saw recurring appearances from singer Brandi and former American Idol contestant Kelli Pickler, who both booked guest roles.
90210 returns Jan. 17 with new episodes.
Happy Thanksgiving, Roomies!
As I’ll likely be in a Turkey coma on Friday, here’s something to be thankful for a little early… Spoiler Room: Special Wednesday/Pre-Holiday/Yay For a Long Weekend Edition! Yup, just a few scoops to take you into your hopefully lovely holiday.
But before the 411 — and at the risk of sounding very sappy — I have to say that I’m very thankful for your readership and highly entertaining comments and questions this year. Here’s to another great one!
On that note, don’t slack! Send questions and ponderings to firstname.lastname@example.org or Tweet ‘em to me @EWSandraG. Be well!
‘HIMYM': ABOUT THE NEXT EPISODE…
The logline for next week’s How I Met Your Mother is incredibly teasey. Observe: When “Robin receives bad news, she decides to lie about it to the gang. Meanwhile, Marshall hangs Christmas decorations on the house in the ‘burbs with help from his neighbor.” But still unsatisfied, I hopped on the phone yesterday with HIMYM executive producer Carter Bays, who talked about the next episode. (To read part of our chat, click here.)
What I left out about the Dec. 5 episode, however, is something that truly sent chills of anticipation down my spine: While Bays said he believes it’s “one of the best episodes we’ve ever done,” he also expressed a little apprehension, saying he hopes viewers will see it the same way. “You know, honestly, I hope people stay on board after the next episode,” he tells me. “I think there’s some incredible acting in it, and it’s a really nicely told story that we’re very pleased with. But… this Barney and Robin stuff is a third rail for our show in a good way. It’s nice to get a little jolt every now and then, but it is so divisive among fans from what I’ve gathered. So hopefully people will enjoy the story for what it is. But yeah, we’re nervous about where the story goes. Excited, and very proud of it, but I hope people stay on board. I think they will.” READ FULL STORY
EW has learned exclusively that Sara Foster, who played Naomi’s snobby and manipulative sister Jen, will return for three episodes.
The dirty details: Jen surprises Naomi (Annalynne McCord) with a visit at the end of episode 416, with baby Jacques in tow. Jen then coerces Naomi into helping her find a rich, eligible bachelor, but the guy ends up having eyes for Naomi, instead. Snap!
CBS and Warner Bros. announced today that The CW and Hulu have struck a five-year licensing deal to allow the website to stream CW shows on Hulu and Hulu Plus. This encompasses network tentpoles 90210, America’s Next Top Model, Gossip Girl, Supernatural, and The Vampire Diaries, as well as Ringer, Hart of Dixie, The Secret Circle, and Nikita. Under the agreement, up to five in-season episodes will only be featured on Hulu Plus for eight days following the broadcast, at which point they will be available on the ad-supported free Hulu site. “The CW programming is a great example of the kind of in-season content we want to make available,” said Hulu’s SVP of Content Andy Forssell. “Making these shows available on Hulu and Hulu Plus will allow new and existing fans to get their fix of The CW’s great shows anytime and anywhere.”
Michelle Hurd is headed for the most drama-filled zip code on TV.
The Glades actress, who plays the tough Colleen Manus on the A&E show, has scored a recurring role as a stylish event planner who approaches one of the girls after a fashion show — “with a lucrative proposition,” according to casting intel. The potential for trouble sounds imminent!
Hurd’s first episode will air in December. Prior to The Glades, she also appeared on Gossip Girl, ER, and Law & Order: SVU.
90210 knows how to do costumes. And while nothing might ever top Naomi’s Na’vi outfit (not worn for a Halloween episode, I might add), the costumes on the upcoming Halloween episode are pretty amazing. My favorite? Silver’s bun-less hot dog.
Holly’s Chiquita Banana garb (visible in the photo below) is also pretty festive, but I expected better from Ivy, whose “rocker” ensemble falls short. Also, Annie, a princess? Pfft. Typical. Kidding!
Look who’s joining Matt Lanter at poolside?
Here’s an exclusive first look of Jersey Shore’s Vinny Guadagnino, who has been cast in an episode that will air in November. Guadagnino will portray a celebrity who plays in a high stakes poker game with Liam (Lanter) when the cast heads to Las Vegas. He won’t play himself, however: He’ll depict a “young and gregarious” celebrity who “enjoys the fruits of fame.” READ FULL STORY
CBS Corporation and Warner Bros. Television Group have signed a four-year deal with Netflix that will allow its customers to instantly watch more than 700 hours of previous seasons of scripted series that currently air on The CW, including episodes of Ringer, Hart of Dixie, The Secret Circle, The Vampire Diaries, Gossip Girl, 90210, Supernatural, Nikita, and One Tree Hill.
“This is a forward-thinking agreement … that opens a new door for The CW programming to expand its audience reach through the terrific Netflix service, and creates a brand-new window for CBS and Warner Bros. to be paid for the content we supply the network,” said Leslie Moonves, president and CEO of the CBS Corporation, in a statement.

It’s about that time again.
And I’m particularly excited going into this weekend because I’m days away from making my maiden voyage to Canada. (No, not to track the history of Robin Sparkles.) That’s right, my little maple leaves, I’m headed north to visit the sets of Once Upon a Time, Alcatraz, Supernatural, and The Secret Circle. Exciting, right? So send me your questions for the stars of those shows ASAP!
And remember to be sending me your questions (via e-mail or Twitter!) on shows new and returning, reactions to buzzy episodes of your favorite shows, and your general ponderings! (Y’all had a great batch of questions this week!) Until next week!
‘HIMYM': READER QUESTIONS ANSWERED
It’s no secret I’ve been mildly obsessed with How I Met Your Mother lately. And judging by the caliber and depth of your questions, I’m not alone! So while chatting with creator Carter Bays about last week’s episode, I threw in a few of your questions as well! The fruits of your labors are below! READ FULL STORY
Annie and Liam’s split in this week’s episode of 90210 didn’t leave much room for reconciliation — and that’s because there likely won’t be, according to Matt Lanter. “This is the most official we’ve seen them split up. We’re filming episode 8 or 9, and there’s no sign of them yet getting back together. So I think it’s official,” he says.
But weep not. Liam’s got a lot on his plate in the next few episodes, especially with a pregnant girlfriend who’s carrying a dead man’s baby. “I think he feels like he wants to step up. I think [Monday night was] a big moment for him. It was a turning point in his life — just growing up and becoming an adult and becoming mature and having responsibilities,” he says. “We’re going to see him accept the responsibility and then struggle with it. He’s not going to be able to support it — both emotionally and financially. So even though he makes some choices, he still struggles. He’s still a young kid.” READ FULL STORY
Here’s a fun and unexpected piece of casting for the new season of 90210. EW has learned exclusively that Billy Ray Cyrus has signed on to play Judd Ridge, the father of southern rich kid Austin (Justin Deeley).
The role won’t be much of a stretch for Cyrus: He will play a country western star of a different name. Judd’s son Austin was introduced in the premiere episode as a new love-hate interest for Naomi (Annalynne McCord). They had an adversarial encounter over a house that she wanted to buy.
Cyrus’ episode will air in November. He currently hosts the reality show Surprise Homecoming on TLC. Earlier this year, he finished his five-year run on Hannah Montana with his daughter, Miley.
