The executives have been talking about the possibility to bring over an established character on '90210' to jack up the rating of new 'Melrose Place'.
The talks about a crossover event between "90210" and "Melrose Place" are heating up with the latest scoop from TV Guide suggesting that it would be a 'he'. Questions were thrown about which character from "90210" will help to revamp the spin-off to '90s "Melrose Place".
Ryan Eggold, who plays Ryan Matthews, has been deemed to be 'the chosen one'. In response to this, Eggold said, "You know, I've been hearing this and I don't know if it's true either. But it will be fun to play this character Ryan as a twenty something in a show like that. Just to kind of open him up a little bit. I'd love to sort of check out a different passage of Ryan."
The first hint of a crossover came from Naomi Clark depicter on "90210", AnnaLynne McCord. She said last month, "The producers have actually mentioned that to us. We don't know who or where or what or when yet, but they want that very much."
Back in 1992, Jennie Garth made a crossover to the original "Melrose Place" while she was playing Kelly Taylor on "Beverly Hills 90210".
Both "90210" and "Melrose Place" will premiere on September 8 on The CW.
