Since before he arrived on 90210, Matt Lanter (Liam) was billed by The CW as the "new Dylan McKay."
Lofty standards to live up.
Over the next few 90210 episodes, though, it looks like the character will truly let out his inner bad boy.
"Liam takes out Ethan to a camping trip. Ethan's trying to find himself and Liam encourages that from people, trying to find what's deep inside. He gets Ethan into some trouble. Liam's presence is being felt in a pretty major way," Lanter said to E! Online.
Moreover, look for Liam's new romance with Naomi to hit a rough patch.
"By the end of the season, there's going to be some major drama with [Naomi] and her sister and possibly Annie. There's some problem with her sister. She comes in and she definitely makes things tough in 90210. People are definitely going to be angry and betrayed.
