90210 Casts a Bad Boy Who's Easy on the Eyes

90210 Casts a Bad Boy Who's Easy on the Eyes

One of my big complaints with the new 90210 has been its utter lack of a bad boy. (Sorry, Ethan, you're just not doin' it for me.) So I'm quite interested in this news that Matt Lanter has been cast as the new wild dude at West Bev, showing up starting in February.

Lanter will play Liam, a character who will be of particular interest to AnnaLynne McCord's Naomi. He's currently scheduled for several episodes.

Lanter's done bad-boy before (really bad — his character got rough with Claire early in the first season of Heroes), but he's also done nicer teen roles, including playing Mackenzie Allen's son in Commander in Chief. He's currently the voice of Anakin Skywalker on Star Wars: The Clone Wars, and — I know, way to bury the big stuff — he was also the lead in The Cutting Edge 3. Yeah, I'm kind of excited.

Do you think having a bona fide bad boy will help 90210 leap forward in 2009? Or will you reserve judgment till you see Lanter with the rest of the cast?

well i think that they might see that there's something good to be said about casting a 'bad boy'. they tried to go the route of drug addict - and now they are going to try this and it could help a little bit in savings!
