TVLine Items: BH90210 Casts Tori's Hubby, Sheldon Promotion and More

BH90210 Ivan Sergei

BH90210‘s spousal group continues to expand: Ivan Sergei (Jack & Jill, Crossing Jordan) will recur in the Fox event series as the husband of Tori Spelling’s character, our sister site Deadline reports.

Sergei’s Nate is an ex-hockey player who wants to be a professional sports announcer. The actor joins fellow fictional significant others La La Anthony (Power) and Vanessa Lachey (Truth Be Told), who will play the wives of Brian Austin Green and Jason Priestley’s characters, respectively.

As previously reported, BH90210 — premiering Wednesday, Aug. 7 at 9/8c — will reunite original cast members Spelling, Priestley, Green, Jennie Garth, Ian Ziering, Gabrielle Carteris and Shannen Doherty, all of whom will play exaggerated versions of themselves, with stories “inspired by their real lives and relationships.” When one of the cast members suggests getting a Beverly Hills, 90210 reboot off the ground, the group finds that “getting it going may make for an even more delicious soap than the reboot itself.”
