Days of Our Lives Star Trevor Donovan Cast on 90210

Is This the Hottie Who Will Make You Watch 90210?

The CW's 90210 reboot has been needing a real hottie for a while — I thought Matt Lanter's Liam would fill the role, but he's turned out kind of skeezy — and so this casting news has me wondering if the show has finally found its guy. The show has cast Trevor Donovan as Teddy, a new big man on campus.

The former Days of Our Lives star (and Abercrombie and Fitch model) will be a "heavily recurring" character on the show's second season, starting with an episode fairly early on. The character is described as a JFK Jr. type, as Entertainment Weekly puts it:

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.

Gotta admit, he's not tough to look at. But is it enough to make you say "Ethan who?" And does 90210 need more than just a hot guy infusion to make you tune in?

I like the blonde boys! If you do a google search on him you will see him with no shirt and he has a ripped hot body!

Hottie FAIL, CW. This guy is way too pretty. I don't know they ever got rid of Ethan. He was one of the only redeeming parts of an otherwise terrible show.

Weird. And his hair is not helping. Ew. Agree with BabyNorbert. Why can't just make Kellan's character develop? He's cute, hot, ok, not a great actor, but he's famous. Why waste it with one or two scenes every episode?

No. I'm going to miss Dustin! I'm so glad they at least still have the hottie that Matt Lanter.

I don't really think he's that cute...but 90210 needs a LOT more than one hot guy to save it.

he's 31?! wow.... no i don't think that he's hot one bit. the hottest on the show are mr matthews and liam. other than that the totty factor is low. gossip girl definitely got it right. there are loads of cute american actors who would be a pull. or they should make better use of actors involved already- though i don't find kellan attractive, i think the twilight obsessives would watch it more and bump up the ratings if his storylines were a bit more key.

He is just way too old. 31 yr olds should not be playing high schoolers. Bring back Ethan!

Better writing and acting will make this show better, not a JTT look a like.

Don't see the appeal. GG made me watch it with 3 hot guys. Don't think 90210 has got the same quality.

He's not cute. Liam is way hotter. I like BabyNorbert's suggestion, more Kellan Lutz (preferably shirtless) please!
