With his days as David Silver a decade behind him, once again Brian Austin Green appears to be building some momentum on the small screen and that’ll continue this season as he joins the cast of Desperate Housewives. Read on to hear his thoughts on the role and what he has to say about the new 90210. Green was interviewed by Details.com recently. Among the topics of discussion were his thoughts on the original 90210 as compared with the CW series that’s currently airing…
“90210 only worked because of that time period—because the world didn't have access to a lifestyle like that. The Internet wasn't what it is now. With TMZ and Paris Hilton wrecking cars and people being chased on freeways, there's nothing interesting about Beverly Hills. Beverly Hills is nothing anymore.”
That actually makes a lot of sense. Beverly Hills, 90210 was a glimpse into the glamorous world of Beverly Hills, told through the eyes of a couple of regular, middle-class kids. At least, it started out that way. But thanks to celeb-reality shows and the internet, “reality” has sort of made the concept a bit less exciting and given how dramatic and drawn out some of the tabloid stories can get, it’s a wonder shows like 90210 can top them anymore.
Green is set to play the role of a dreamy handyman on Desperate Housewives. Here’s what he had to say about the part.
“Sweaty guy with a hammer. A lot of tank tops. I've got to say it's a whole new world for me. I've never played a hunky guy. There was one day when I had to take my shirt off. I must have done 400 push-ups. I feel like I understand the pressure that women go through. I feel, like, all-woman at times.”
Was he not supposed to be hunky in Terminator: The Sarah Connor Chronicles?
