90210 Exclusive: Alias Alum Is Liam's [Spoiler]

MerrinDungey_30090210 has enlisted an Alias vet for an upcoming mission installment.

Merrin Dungey — who played super spy Sydney Bristow’s ill-fated best friend-turned-body-snatched baddie on the cult hit — will guest-star in a February episode of the CW soap, TVLine has learned exclusively.

She’ll play a sympathetic therapist assigned to counsel Liam, who’ll be held at a courthouse after suffering some legal woes.

Dungey’s most recent TV credits include Revenge, Better Off Ted, Hung and The King of Queens.

90210 resumes its fifth season on Monday, Jan. 21 in its new 9/8c time slot, where it will follow freshman charmer The Carrie Diaries (premiering Jan. 14).

  4. Linda says:

    This show has become so bad that even though I like her, I may miss her ep just because I will be watching something else (anything else). Loved her in King of Queens, even when she “left” Deacon et al for Lori Laughlin-led Summerland where her character there was kind of boring, but then again all the characters on Summerland were boring.

      Summerland may have been boring and had a really lame title but I’ll always remember it for introducing me to Ryan Kwanten on mute.

  7. Scott says:

    Love Merrin!! Loved Loved her on Alias! She’s awesome on any show!

  8. Mark says:

    She would have been a lot better than Audra in Private Practice. Also a lot more believable that she would end up with Taye Diggs.

  9. Jason says:

    Little clue for 90210 producers: Seeing “Naomi” in any stage of undress is repulsive.

    She was most recently on Hollywood Heights.
