Finally, 90210 casting news that involves someone coming to the show.

Over the last few weeks, we've learned that Jennie Garth and Rob Estes would not be returning for season three. But Diego Boneta is going in the opposite direction:

The pop singer is coming aboard for a recurring role as Javier, a young musician that appears in multiple episodes this May. Look for the character to have a fling with Adrianna... who joins an all-girl band!

As first reported by TV Guide, this will mark Boneta's first high-profile acting gig in the States.

The singer has been nominated for Latin MTV Awards and Latin Grammys. He's also opened for Hilary Duff on tour.
