As casting continues on The CW’s planned Beverly Hills, 90210 spinoff — our Hollywood Insider blog reports that Nip/Tuck’s AnnaLynne McCord (right) will play one of the hot, rich teens, alongside the previously cast Dustin Milligan (left) — we think it’s time to take a PopWatch pulse: Are you happy with the way the spinoff is shaping up? Before you answer, did you catch the item in The Hollywood Reporter saying the spinoff is now Veronica Mars creator Rob Thomas’ third priority? He has two pilots in the pot at ABC, so other scribes are being hired to rewrite his spinoff script. (Thomas will, however, remain an executive producer on the CW pilot.)
Personally, my enthusiasm for the spinoff is beginning to wane. Yours?
