Ryan Matthews: Remaining on 90210

at . Comments

For weeks, rumors were flying that Ryan Eggold's 90210 character of Ryan Matthews would crossover to the new Melrose Place this fall.

But casting on the latter show has put an end to that plan: Jessica Lucas, who played a character that slept with Ryan on 90210, plays Riley Richmond on Melrose Place. It's confusing enough to explain, let alone air.

“Jessica’s character and had an affair with Ryan on 90210,” said Melrose Place producer Todd Slavkin. “So we clearly feel that’s something to avoid.”

A Big Talk

Jessica Lucas, seen here on 90210, has switched CW shows.

So, will there be any crossover between these CW shows at all?

Jennie Garth and Tori Spelling are possibilities, Slavkin said. As a former Smallville producer, he told TV Guide Magazine:

“We love Tori Spelling. We worked with her on Smallville we thought she was great. And we’re huge fans of Jennie Garth. Both characters turned up on the original Melrose Place, so it would be fun.”

What do you think, fans? Do you wanna see a crossover between these dramas? Chime in now in our 90210 forum!
