Jesse in San Francisco, Calif.: Will Luke Perry finally show up on 90210?
Highly doubtful, according to Jennie Garth. At the Costume Designer Awards, we asked her when he would be on the show, and Jennie jumped right in, saying, "I don't think he is." Bummer.
Nancy in Cedar Rapids, Iowa: Eric Christian Olsen is so great on Brothers & Sisters. Any chance he'll be staying around?
Eric Christian Olsen has two more episodes left of B&S, but then he'll be starting a new show for ABC called Threesome, written by Ricky Blitt (Family Guy). Olsen says the show is not as dirty as its name makes it sound: "It's a really funny comedy. It's about these two roommates and the girl that I fell in love with." Anything that keeps Eric on ABC is fine by me.
Neil in Charlotte, N.C.: Have you heard anything about Josh Schwartz's new series, Rockville?
I actually just caught up with one of its stars, Andrew West, who is just as good-looking as a Josh Schwartz leading man should be! The new web series premieres on March 17, and Andrew tells me, "It's a comedy about a group of college-age kids hanging out at a rock club in east L.A., and it's fantastic. Lots of great music, lots of great bands and very funny. It's from Josh Schwartz, so it has to be good." As for the Gossip Girl spinoff, Andrew is keeping his fingers crossed he'll join the cast, but he will play Ashley's (Amber Stevens) new boyfriend in the upcoming season of Greek. And BTW, he's also her real-life boyfriend too, lucky gal!
