Exclusive: An Original 90210er Returns!

Beverly Hills’ cattiest cougar is back on the prowl.

Original 90210 minx Dina Meyer is returning to the zip code that made her infamous via a guest stint on The CW’s reboot, sources confirm to TVLine exclusively.

But sadly, Meyer will not be reprising her role as Lucinda Nicholson, the married California University prof who bedded star pupil Brandon Walsh.

However, her new character shares at least one thing in common with Lucinda: She too has an appreciation for college-age boys.

The Saw heroine will play a modeling agent who takes a special interest in Liam’s (Matt Lanter) career. But from what we gather, their relationship is strictly business. Bummer. That would’ve been some seriously fun continuity.

Meyer’s episode is slated to air during November sweeps.

Comments are monitored, so don’t go off topic, don’t frakkin’ curse and don’t bore us with how much your coworker’s sister-in-law makes per hour. Talk smart about TV!

    Too bad. Lucinda was so much fun!

    Not that I watched the original, but they had original characters appear as their original characters in seasons one and two… This doesn’t make sense to me.

    • len says:

      Just cause others did doesn’t’ mean that she has to. Series like Law and Order have had the same actors play different characters within the same show so it isn’t like it is a new concept.

      • Jamie says:

        Yes, but it’s un credible and unrealistic.

        • Evans says:

          thats what Hollywood is all about though.

        • leslie says:

          As unrealistic as the actor who played Brandon and Brenda’s wheelchair bound cousin returning years later as Colin’s drug dealer? What about the fact that Valerie’s mom’s fiance who she slept with also played by the actor who played Joe’s brother? Those are two (but there are more) examples from within the same show so at least this time it is years apart and a different (though related) series. Granted, those characters weren’t as relevant as Lucinda, but the differences don’t change the fact that it is common practice that has spanned television for decades.

    Why is she not Lucinda? They should absolutely bring back the Lucinda character — that would get lots of us (including me) watching again. What a phenomenal character.

  4. Snapy says:

    Why don’t they bring back characters we actually care about, like Brenda, Kelly, Donna, David, Dylan and Brandon? I stopped watching the new 90210 after the first season when it became clear they didn’t care about the veterans or their fans.

    Bummer is right. That does not sound fun. At all.

  6. krenee says:

    It doesn’t seem right to have old characters playing themselves AND old characters playing someone different. They did this with Rob Estes, too, who was on Melrose but playing a different character on the new 90210 (and actually, he played two different characters on Melrose). And it was weird to have to have him interacting with Kelly, considering she was the initial bridge between the old 90210 and Melrose.

    This is seriously great! I was just commenting that I was wondering how Liam’s modeling career might become more interesting, and here’s my answer. Read more of my thoughts on this week’s and previous episodes of 90210 by visiting http://www.tvmovielove.com.

    I get shows using the same actor for different parts, Buffy did it quite a few times. But never with an iconic character. Granted, these are two different shows, but still, the world’s overlap heavily (Silver, duh). So I’m not sold on this one bit. If she had a small part or a really small arc on the original, then fine. But she didn’t and having her play a different character just isn’t right.
