Diego Boneta: Cast on Pretty Little Liars

by at . Comments

Diego Boneta is moving from Beverly Hills to Rosewood. At least temporarily.

The Mexican pop singer appeared on the final few episodes of 90210 last season as Javier, the artist trying to steal Adrianna from Navid, and it's believed he'll show up again in the fall.

But first he'll make a stop on Pretty Little Liars. Boneta told gossip site JustJaredJr.com this week that he's been cast on the ABC Family hit, saying:

“My character is Alex, he’s a tennis player at the country club. He meets Spencer. The four girls actually go to this private school and Alex is really just a regular guy, he goes to public school and works part time.”

Earlier today, we reported on a trio of other characters that will come aboard the show this summer. We can now add Alex to the mix.

What do you think about the casting of Boneta in this role?

Javier ! I am beyond excited to see him back on my tv screen !
Although in my mind, i'm having a hard time placing his spot on the show. I wouldn't really like if he got between Spencer and Wren because Wren is just the cutest ! However maybe a little best friend love could be interesting ! Glad to see him back so soon ! RileyFord

Wren is cute and all for spencer but sadly in the books they dont last because he turns out to be an azz but i think in the 4th book alex comes in. so i hope spencer do fall for someone who isnt her sister ex or current bf.
