Two hot male actors are coming to The CW’s favorite zip code.

The first is Wes Brown, who played Luke McDonald in season two of HBO’s True Blood, and had an arc on The CW’s Hart of Dixie. He will appear in 90210’s fifth season as Taylor, a recurring role. The character is described as “a hot, club promoter who is irresistible to women and is used to getting what he wants through charm, determination and wit. He’s focused on his career, really loves music, and has a great eye for new talent – which will include Adrianna [Jessica Lowndes].”

Also coming to the show: Newcomer Trai Byers (All My Children) has been cast in the recurring role of Alec. He’s described as a “young, hot Ivy League educated ‘tech’ guy who is Max’s (Josh Zuckerman) business partner. He is charming and attractive but more focused on his business than personal relationships, and will stop at nothing to protect what he considers his.”

90210 returns Monday, Oct. 8.
