Perry to surf again
Former “Beverly Hills, 90210” star Luke Perry is joining the cast of another Southern California-set show, Zap2it.com reports.
The new show is unlikely to be as lighthearted as the last one, however.
Mr. Perry, who most recently starred in NBC’s “Windfall,” will be a series regular on HBO’s “John From Cincinnati.” The show is the latest project from “Deadwood” creator David Milch. He became a full-time cast member after guest-starring in the pilot, according to the Hollywood Reporter.
“John From Cincinnati” explores the surfing culture of Imperial Beach, Calif., south of San Diego, and focuses on a prominent but dysfunctional family. The cast also includes Bruce Greenwood, Rebecca De Mornay, Ed O’Neill, Luis Guzman and Austin Nichols, who plays the title character.
Mr. Milch and author Kem Nunn co-wrote the pilot, which began filming last month. The series is scheduled to premiere in the summer.
Mr. Perry is best known for playing Dylan McKay — an avid surfer himself — for most of “90210’s” 10-season run. “John” will be his second turn on an HBO series; he had a recurring part on “Oz” in 2001-02.
