Ryan Eggold Previews 90210 Character, Story Line

at . Comments

In a recent interview with TV Guide, Ryan Eggold provided readers with a preview of his character, Ryan Matthews.

The actor describes the teacher as "kind of a kid himself," evidently one that doesn't always carry on a professional relationship with his students.

"There is some tension between a student and myself," Eggold said, teasing that the dynamic will be explored in the plot episode. "I'm not sure where they're going to go with it... I do have a love interest, I can't say yet [who]."

Ryan Eggold says 90210 is "really hot." And this handsome actor knows a thing or two about being hot!

Eggold added that the Ryan Gosling film Half Nelson served as inspiration for the character of Ryan Matthews, which is interesting considering that Gosling depicted a loner, drug-addicted teacher in that movie.

"[Matthews is] definitely his own man and kind of a lone wolf in a sense. He butts heads with the principal a lot, Harry Mills (Rob Estes). He's kind of a loose cannon, and does whatever he feels."

We can't wait to find out what that entails!
