Which Actors Should be Cast in the New 90210 Spinoff?

Who Should Play the New Inhabitants of 90210?

Since we now have an outline of the main characters for the rumored 90210 spinoff, my brain can't stop thinking about who might be cast in these roles. While these new characters have updated traits and hobbies (emo! YouTube!) they are, as some have pointed out, more or less the new versions of the original cast. While we all have our old favorites, I think it's really fun imagining the young stars who could play these updated versions of the original Kelly, Brenda, Donna, etc. Also, some of the original 90210 actors were, like, 30 years old when they played teenagers so I'm going to expand my own fictional casting reach as such.

For example, I could totally see Kristen Stewart (In the Land of Women, Into the Wild) as Annie, the emo girl looking to get popular, and Victor Razuk (Lords of Dogtown, upcoming Stop-Loss) as her adopted bad-boy brother, Dixon. I loved Kevin Zegers in The Jane Austen Book Club and could see him as the jock. Also, this Nickelodeon actress screams Daphne Silver to me. What do you think? Any hot young stars come to mind to fill these slots?

For a reminder of all the new characters and their descriptions, and to tell me who you're thinking could play them,


  • Annie — 16, is an emo kid and drama nerd who's trying to make it with the cool crowd.
  • Dixon — Also 16, Annie's adopted brother, smart but bad.
  • Tabitha Mills — A washed-up, 60-ish actress and alcoholic. Annie and Dixon’s grandma.
  • Harry Mills — Tabitha's do-gooder son, who graduated from Beverly Hills High in the 1980s and has decided to move home to be near his mom.
  • Celia Mills — Wife of Harry, an ex-Olympic athlete who becomes a personal trainer.
  • Daphne Silver — High schooler who hosts her own YouTube series and wants to be a socialite. Related to David Silver?
  • Max Silver — 24 year-old brother of Daphne. Manages the Century City Mall's movie theater. He is probably hiding some dark secrets.
  • Navid Shirazi — Teen of Middle Eastern descent who runs the school's TV newscast and is a high school politician.
  • Ethan Ward — The token jock who gets dropped by the popular kids and ends up hanging out with the rest of the cast.
  • Naomi Bennett — Hot, rich, and dating Ethan. Starts out as brat but gets more dimensions as the show goes on.

We all know how Aaron Spelling loved to write, produce, and direct...with people that ONLY looked like him. This show loved to show the sterotype role when it came to other races *** Simple as that. It's NO secret to anyone. They need to let this show DIE!

I meant the 2nd and 3rd seasons, not the 2nd and second. :ROTFL: And I hope you don't think I'm being rude Nyrina, I was just pointing out some things. You are right though that alot of things need to change, I just don't it makes a difference for a TV show. I personally don't see colors when I am watching TV, I see actors. If the actors are good and the show is funny, I watch it. I would imagine most of America is that way too. But I really hope this isn't coming out rude, it's late, I'm tired and should be in bed. LOL

Nyrina, that isn't true. IN fact a major portion of the second season was based around the black community, as was alot of the 2nd. Granted only a few attended West Beverly, but in Season 3 in particular, Andrea's boyfriend was a black guy. I loved that show and just actually watched the last parts of Season 3 this past weekend, in Anticipation of the release of the 4th. I'm a bit of a geek for this show.

Amen nyaradzom2001!!! Spelling acted like he didn't know other races exsisted when he made that other show. Like other races do NOT attend schools in that area or private schools. And anyone that did make an appearance on the show that was another race was stereotypical OR done some type of crime-- which is really the same because even the people in the background were serving up those stereotypical actions. Spelling is dead and gone and NONE of his ideas should EVER come into play again in American. I love shows that has a rainbow of positive characters. I hate that whitebread mess, even tons of white people are hating that line of thought these days. Thank goodness we are trying to think the same when it comes to wanting the old Hollywood ways dead and gone like Spelling himself. NO MORE 90210 of ANY kind!!!!

I'm still beyond a skeptic, but it's Rob Thomas. That's the only interesting thing about it.

HAHA...I love the description for Naomi Bennett — Hot, rich, and dating Ethan. Starts out as brat but gets more dimensions as the show goes on. Isn't that how they all are on these stupid shows? Hot and rich, and then some lame complications surface to make their perfect life less perfect. Yawn!

I love the Kristen Stuart thing. She's very talented, not to mention gorgeous. What about Mika Boorem as Daphne? Alexis Dziena as Naomi?
